Breakfast Deals: Rio's aluminum scrap

Rio’s failure to offload Pacific Aluminium raises questions about its future, while ACM tracks towards a market listing.

Tom Albanese couldn’t sell Pacific Aluminium and, it turns out, neither could Sam Walsh. Rio Tinto is stuck with the business. Meanwhile, debt collector ACM Group is apparently moving towards an IPO, Dexus Property Group is reaching for peace with Commonwealth Office Property Fund and Thomsons Lawyers is in merger discussions with Herbert Geer.
