Deal defence and carveouts for a global mining company

Supported a global mining player to fight off a hostile takeover bid.

With everything at stake, we worked with this leading multinational on investor communications and the divestment of non-core businesses.


This leading global mining organisation was defending itself against a hostile takeover bid, and brought us in to work closely with the internal bid defence team, supporting them on two fronts.


Our first role was to craft messaging and business cases for the bid defence team, to influence the investor community both proactively and reactively, in particular to establish that the bid undervalued the company.

Separately, we set up and ran the PMO that managed a series of international divestments of non-core businesses.


With our support the company successfully defended itself against the hostile takeover bid, and retained its independence.
