Zentree Investments has asked the Takeovers Panel to intervene in Energy Resources of Australia’s proposed $476m capital raising. The proceeds of the entitlement offer will be used to help meet the cost of rehabilitation work at the Ranger uranium mine in the Northern Territory. Zentree is concerned that the capital raising will allow Rio Tinto to increase its 68.4 per cent stake in ERA while gaining access to its tax losses and franking credits. Zentree is ERA’s second-largest shareholder.
