Dan MacInnis, CEO of MAG, commented, “This may be the first time in history that a hostile bidder has announced a bid at a price lower than the closing market price of the target’s shares on the trading day prior to announcement. Analysts and a number of shareholders are now calling this a “take-under” offer. We are a little mystified by Fresnillo’s actions, but our Board understands its fiduciary and other obligations and will respond more formally in due course. In the meantime, our shareholders have no need to do anything to respond to the Fresnillo announcement.”
As this chart points out……
1) Accept the Fresnillo offer
2) Watch the stock price fall to where its silver peers are trading.
The only reason that MVG has held up better than peers was the expectation of this FRES.L offer. If it’s rejected, nobody else will buy MVG. Take that to the bank. And the result will be the wholesale dumping of its share price.
