Potash Corporation And K+S Proposed Merger Reportedy Stalled

Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) does not plan any closures at K+S Aktiengesellschaft (DB:SDF) if its bid for the company is successful, people familiar with the matter said. Potash Corporation and K+S have both acknowledged the bid. Potash Corporation intends to retain K+S's German mines operational, would not divest its market-leading salt business, and would continue with the development of a $4-billion legacy mining project in Canada, the people said. Potash Corporation also views K+S's assets as complementary and also sees the stable, strong cash flow of K+S's salt business as attractive, the people said. Potash Corporation submitted a written acquisition proposal to K+S at the end of May, the people added. Potash Corporation has offered to pay around €41 per K+S share, valuing the company at close to €8 billion. Since then, however, K+S has refused to engage in negotiations with Potash Corp., without communicating a reason, the people said. This is despite Potash Corp.'s assurances that any deal would not be based on labor and other cost savings, and that K+S's management would be offered important roles in the combined company, the people added.

Potash Corp. In Talks To Buy German Potash Giant K+S For €7.8 Billion

Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (TSX:POT) confirmed that it has made a private proposal to K+S Aktiengesellschaft (DB:SDF) to negotiate the acquisition of K+S by PotashCorp. There is no certainty that any offer will ultimately be made or as to the terms on which such an offer might be made. Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. has informed the Board of Executive Directors and the Supervisory Board of K+S Aktiengesellschaft that Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. may decide, depending on certain conditions, including a due diligence exercise, to offer to the shareholders of the company the acquisition of all outstanding shares by way of public takeover offer. According to sources, PotashCorp has made a €7.8 billion proposal. Sources familiar with the matter said that the takeover offer represents over €40 a share, and K+S is likely to reject the offer as being too low.
