Embattled commodity trader Noble Group Ltd. has won over a major opponent of its make-or-break restructuring plan, ending months of accusations and lawsuits. Shares rallied more than 60 percent.

Dissident shareholder Goldilocks Investment Co. has given its irrevocable support to the $3.5 billion debt-for-equity proposal after Noble agreed to grant existing shareholders 20 percent of the revamped company, up from 15 percent previously, the trader said in a statement Wednesday. The two agreed to stop fighting each other in court.
