Extract merger with Kalahari terminated

South Perth-based uranium company Extract Resources' proposed merger agreement with London-listed Kalahari Minerals has been terminated.

Kalahari formally advised Extract that it does not have the support of a number of its largest shareholders and consequently it will not be able to meet its obligations in the merger deal.

In an announcement released in September, Extract had recommended a scheme of arrangements to merge both companies, in a scrip deal that was meant to be worth over $210 million, with the combined entity to be dual listed on the local stock market and London's Alternative Investment Market.

Extract now intends to consider a range of options with a view to maximising the position for its shareholders.
