The battle for Hastings Diversified Utilities Fund heats up, while speculation is rife of a Fairfax writedown.

APA Group shareholders will interested to see if Hastings Diversified Utilities Fund deems its offer better than the rival bid by Pipeline Partners Australia – it’ll be hard for them to conclude otherwise. The News Corp split makes even more sense after the writedown this morning, along with the proposed purchase of Consolidated Media Holdings. Also in media, Fairfax is expected to join News with a writedown of its own, ClearView Wealth Management is reinforcing its defences as Crescent Capital Partners circles and Anglo American might be about to deal with an Aussie listed player.
