An independent expert’s report from BDO has valued Atlas Iron at between $0.015 and $A0.03 per share, compared with Hancock Prospecting’s offer of $0.042 per share. BDO has recommended that shareholders accept the offer in the absence of a higher bid. BDO warned that Atlas will be financially vulnerable if the price discount for its low-grade iron ore is sustained, while its Mt Webber mine would have to close. Atlas directors have also used its target statement to recommend that shareholders accept the offer.
