Duchatelet mouthpiece Lieven de Turck gave us a takeover update during the week. I don’t know about you but we have very little paper in our office, but the Aussies are cutting down trees as quick as you can say Yvonne Goolagong.
It sounds to me that this is now practically a completely different group. Anyway, fueled by Castlemaine XXXX and a lot of paper the Aussies are still hopeful. In your time Bruce, in your own time.
Meanwhile de Turck has been busy on his three days a week. He said he is talking to three other parties. I hope this is by email and not snail mail, like the Aussies.
One group are European, but not from around our parts. They have been given access to the data room and are spending money doing due diligence. The second party is waiting on, yup you guessed it, paperwork and the last one are making up their minds.
The original secretive alternative to the Aussies are still in the game. Duchatelet’s bag man only had them on the blower that morning, but he can’t say what they said as it’s a secret.
Sorry for the flippancy, but it’s all I have left.
At least Fawaz Al-Hasawi is off the scene. That Twitter picture was the end of those crooked idiots. Hopefully.
A more rational write up is here on the CAST website.
