Santos has terminated discussions with Harbour Energy after its board deemed that the suitor’s "best and final" offer of $US5.21 ($A6.95) per share did not reflect the oil and gas group’s full value. The deal would have required approval by 75 per cent of Santos shareholders, as well as the Foreign Investment Review Board. It is believed that Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher and most of its board supported the deal, but chairman Keith Spence is said to have opposed it from the outset. Santos shares closed $A0.08 higher at $A6.44 on 22 May.
