MINERAL sands miner Ticor has advised its shareholders to take no action over an indicative proposal from Kumba Resources, in which a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kumba is seeking to acquire all Ticor’s shares.
The offer for Ticor values the company at $1.70 per share.
Following the announcement, West Perth-based Ticor, which operates its Cooljarloo mine through the TiWest joint venture with US mining group Kerr McGee, was trading at $1.71, slightly higher than Kumba’s offer price.
Kumba’s offer for Ticor follows its exit from the $2 billion Hope Downs iron ore development proposal, in which it was replaced by Rio Tinto as a 50 per cent project partner to Hancock Prospecting.
