Comments on: Potash looks like Cadbury, without the chocolate Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: ma2416 Tue, 02 Nov 2010 13:30:31 +0000 Looks liked a mixed article , please write clearly – Explain cadbury deal and than explain potash deal.

Mixing both these deals together creates confusion to reader and irritates them instead of reading the article.

This is the politics of the people. The script is ours and it is 2 letters long.

It takes a special ignorance to completely disregard the precedent set in the last five years by giant miners picking off Canadian companies. The legacy of BS they’ve spewed to get their way, reneging as soon as it suits them, is hardly a small piece of politics. Throw in the billions in lost tax revenue to Canada and the ridiculously lowball bid… this deal deserves to get laughed down all the way to the gutter. This saga will most likely go on for years since investors are not likely to pony up their shares for such an unvalued bid and end in tears for BHP. The era of LBOs is nearing its end, and BHP can’t possibly borrow $55-60B it would take to get this deal done. They had $40B on tap from the potential Rio deal, but that was already pushing the limit of their borrowing capabilities.
