DataRoom AM: Fairfax's new tune

The path to a Fairfax-Macquarie radio merger is logical but bumpy, while Borealis looks into a joint venture with Hastings and Allianz.

Fairfax and Macquarie Radio are again rumoured to be interested in combining their radio assets. A friendly merger may be complicated by past tensions, but with the involvement of key stakeholders Gina Rinehart and John Singleton, there’s every chance a deal could get done. Meanwhile, a Canadian pension fund eyes BG’s gas pipelines in Queensland, Mirabela Nickel knocks at death’s door, the battle for Sydney’s Cross City Tunnel heats up and Redbank power station goes belly up.
