Australia's largest-listed grain handler, GrainCorp Ltd, said that suitor Long-Term Asset Partners (LTAP) has withdrawn its A$2.4 billion ($1.7 billion) takeover bid after due diligence, pushing shares to five-month lows. GrainCorp stock dropped 11 percent at the open of trade on Tuesday to hit close to where it stood preceding the bid, before recouping some of those losses to trade at A$8.18. The little-known asset manager had made an offer of A$10.42 per share in December 2018, as drought wilted crops across Australia's east coast and limited GrainCorp's ability to earn revenue from international grain trading.
** Hedge fund Marcato Capital Management said it opposed marijuana company Acreage Holdings Inc's $3.4 billion sale to rival Canopy Growth Corp, arguing Acreage was too hasty in agreeing to a deal at too low a price. ** Banco Bradesco SA has embarked on its first-ever international acquisition by paying approximately $500 million to buy BAC Florida Bank, which focuses on high-net-worth individuals in a move intended to close the gap with Brazilian rivals.
Australian takeover target GrainCorp Ltd said on Thursday it plans to separate in two, spinning off and listing its global malting unit and restructuring its grain business, whose earnings have been hit by drought. At the same time, GrainCorp said it is still engaging with suitors vying for parts or all of the company, including little known asset manager Long-Term Asset Partners (LTAP), which last year made a A$2.38 billion ($1.69 billion) takeover offer. Shares in Australia's biggest listed bulk grain handler rose as much as 5.3 percent in early trade before closing up 2.1 percent at A$9.50 in a slightly weaker overall market.
GrainCorp, which is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, is an agribusiness and bulk-ports operator. It has agreed to sell its Australian bulk liquid terminals business to independent bulk liquid storage company, ANZ Terminals, for about AUD$350 million (USD$248 million). Eight terminals, with a combined storage capacity of about 211,000 cubic meters, will be sold.

New Zealand's top online marketplace Trade Me Group said it has received a NZ$2.56 billion ($1.8 billion) buyout proposal from a U.S. private-equity firm, trumping a rival offer and setting the stage for a possible bidding war. The offer adds to a flurry of deals made this year in Australia and New Zealand - attractive for private-equity firms given their stable and advanced economies that offer a steady cash flow amid a global financial market rout. California-based Hellman & Friedman offered NZ$6.45 per share for Trade Me, or NZ$0.05 higher than an offer London-based private equity group Apax Partners made last month.
