K+S Reportedly Asks German Government To Help Fend Off Takeover Approach By Potash

K+S Aktiengesellschaft (DB:SDF) has turned to German economy minister Sigmar Gabriel for help against an unwanted takeover approach by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) and has discussed the option KfW taking a stake in K+S, a newspaper reported on July 29, 2015. K+S declined to comment while the economy ministry only said that there had been several talks with the company, reported Reuters.

German Politicians Reject Potash Corp. Offer

K+S Aktiengesellschaft (DB:SDF) facing a takeover proposal from Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) has won support from local politicians for its rejection of the €7.8 billion, The Globe and Mail reports. The German-born executive has said its offer is not predicated on closing mines, curbing production, selling the German company's salt business or cutting jobs. K+S has indicated that a proposal of at least 50 euros a share would be more appropriate to incorporate the value of K+S's new mine in Canada, called Legacy. It also wants job security for employees.

K+S Rejects Potash Corp's New Attempt At Takeover Talks

K+S Aktiengesellschaft (DB:SDF) has rejected a new attempt by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) to entice K+S into takeover talks, a K+S spokesman said on July 21, 2015. A K+S spokesman said Potash Corp Chief Executive Jochen Tilk had met the state premier of the German regional state of Hesse - where K+S is headquartered - and had handed over documents about Potash Corp's plans to preserve jobs after a takeover. K+S was also given the documents. "We've looked into these statements and concluded that they contain nothing substantial beyond what we had already been given in writing. That's why we still see no basis for talks," the spokesman said. A Hesse government spokesman confirmed the meeting had taken place at the request of Potash Corp but declined to comment further. State premier Volker Bouffier has said he would fight to preserve K+S's German sites. A Germany-based spokesman for Potash Corp said the company had in the meetings laid out the advantages of a tie-up for K+S and Potash, while trying to allay the state of Hesse's concerns.
