Perth cobalt explorer in Canadian takeover

A Canadian company has entered into an agreement to acquire Perth-based Cobalt One under an all-scrip deal that values the target at about $63 million.

Shareholders in Cobalt One, formerly known as Equator Resources, will receive 0.145 First Cobalt shares for every share they own, equivalent to 11 cents per share.

The tie-up would create a pure-play cobalt exploration company focused in Canada with a market cap of about $140 million.
