Blaze sweetens Target takeover bid

West Perth-based companies Advance Energy and Odin Energy, through joint venture company Blaze Asset, have extended and lifted its takeover offer for fellow oil and gas explorer Target Energy.

The original takeover deadline was due to expire on Friday afternoon, however Advance and Odin have extended the bid until June 19.
