TORONTO, Nov. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Chengdu Tianqi Industry Group Co., Ltd. ("Tianqi") today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Windfield Holdings Pty Ltd. ("Windfield") has acquired, and agreed to acquire, an aggregate of 17,143,422 ordinary shares ("Shares") of Talison Lithium Limited ("Talison"), representing 14.99% of the issued and outstanding Shares, calculated on a non-diluted basis. This is made up of 11,343,522 Shares already owned by Windfield and a further 5,799,900 Shares, representing 5.07% of issued Shares (calculated on a non-diluted basis), which are the subject of an agreement that Windfield has entered into for the purchase of such Shares at a price of C$6.50 per Share, subject to certain price adjustments and subject to the condition that Windfield, or a related party, announces an intention to make offers under a takeover bid for, or a proposal for a scheme of arrangement to acquire, Shares in Talison at a price higher than C$6.50 per Share.
Windfield acquired the Shares and entered into the agreement to acquire such further Shares in connection with its current intention to submit a proposal to Talison under which Windfield would acquire all of the Shares that it does not already own by way of a scheme of arrangement. Windfield may acquire additional Shares prior to submitting any such proposal. It is intended that such proposal would be submitted to Talison prior to the Talison shareholder meeting to consider the proposed scheme of arrangement involving Rockwood Holdings, Inc. (the "Rockwood Scheme"). While Windfield has not yet finalised the price under any such proposal, if the proposal is made, the price would be higher than contemplated under the proposed Rockwood Scheme. Any proposal may be subject to certain conditions, including necessary regulatory approvals, financing on appropriate terms, satisfactory confirmatory due diligence and entry into a definitive scheme implementation agreement with Talison. There can be no assurances that a proposal will be submitted to Talison or, if submitted, that its conditions will be satisfied. This announcement does not constitute an offer for or solicitation of Shares in any jurisdiction.
