Atlas Iron directors are expected to recommend that shareholders accept a $A390m takeover bid from Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting, after Mineral Resources advised that it will not match the offer. However, Fortescue Metals Group could leverage its 19.9 per cent stake in Atlas to block the deal; Peter O’Connor of Shaw & Partners suggests that if Fortescue does so it could then potentially seek an agreement with Hancock to split Atlas’s assets. O’Connor adds that Fortescue could also make a counter-bid for Atlas.

ATLAS IRON LIMITED – ASX AGO, HANCOCK PROSPECTING PTY LTD, MINERAL RESOURCES LIMITED – ASX MIN, FORTESCUE METALS GROUP LIMITED – ASX FMG, REDSTONE CORPORATION, SHAW AND PARTNERS LIMITED
