Troy Angus of Paradice Investment Management says Santos’s rejection of a takeover offer from Harbour Energy was justified, saying it did not reflect the growth potential of some assets. Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher has also defended the decision to spurn the $A14.4bn bid, after Harbour Energy questioned the oil and gas group’s medium-term growth opportunities. Santos shares closed 8.4 per cent lower at $A5.90 on 23 May, but Gallagher says the stock is now at an appropriate after rising in recent months.
