On MRI, i foresee a complete, a refreshed business strategy and focus with CW onboard. I understand they want to do the same with Exxaro, briqette their fines as well. I think if they can just expand this, it would work, as the input costs are low( waste material) which could provide for good margins.
Agreed. And with the SENs announcement dated 08/09/2014 where CVN buys MRI at 10c per share despite the price being 7c at the time.
It states "4.1 Introduction
Shareholders are advised that on 5 September 2014 2014 ConvergeNet
concluded the terms of the purchase of an additional 30.32% of MRI
(the 'MRI Acquisition') for R25 272 664 (the 'MRI Purchase
Consideration') from AfrAsia Special Opportunities Fund ('ASOF')
(29.78% for R24 822 664) and Titan Share Dealers Proprietary Limited
(0.54% for R450 000), subject to the fulfilment of the conditions
precedent set out in paragraph 4.5 below."
So if CVN purchases 30.32% of MRI for 10cents, surely the base price going forward for MRI should at least 10c. Otherwise what would their rationale be for purchasing such a large stake of MRI at a premium?
