DataRoom AM: Milking M&A

The battle for Warnnambool Cheese could foreground a year of M&A resurgence, while Vodafone and TPG seem most likely to make a play for AAPT.

As Bega Cheese gears up to deliver an improved takeover offer to Warrnambool Cheese and Butter, there is talk of a major revival in the M&A sector. So which companies could be next in the takeover queue? Meanwhile, Telecom New Zealand confirms reports it is shopping AAPT around, APN News & Media offloads the rest of its local billboard business and Woodside Petroleum receives some good news in Israel.
