Cimic makes bid for Macmahon

Construction giant CIMIC Group has proposed to acquire all the shares it doesn’t own in Perth-based Macmahon Holdings, with the deal valuing the target at about $174 million.

Cimic told the market this morning it had increased its stake in Macmahon from 19.5 per cent to 20.5 per cent, and that it intended to make a final unconditional offer to wholly acquire Macmahon for 14.5 cents per share.

The offer represents a 31.8 per cent premium to Macmahon’s last closing price, and a 45.6 per cent premium to the company’s three-month volume-weighted average price.
