BREAKFAST DEALS: Arrium abandoned

Arrium's share price may tank after it rejected Steelmakers' revised offer, while GrainCorp fights for the right price.

Arrium emerges this morning without a suitor officially at the table, so its share price could easily lose quite a bit of ground. But apparently, Steelmakers Australia is still conducting discussions, just not directly with Arrium. GrainCorp is also fighting for its rightful valuation, as another bidder reportedly runs some numbers. Meanwhile, its fight night (or day rather) at Whitehaven Coal, some of Australia’s largest contractors are standing a little taller and Telstra has picked up a deal with the Department of Defence.
