DataRoom AM: Port of Melbourne push

The Victorian government has outlined its plans for Port of Melbourne's sale, while a takeover bid for mining engineering firm Bradken is on shaky ground.

The privatisation of Medibank Private topped the deals agenda last year and 2015 is also shaping up to be a year dominated by government infrastructure sales as NSW and Queensland hive off power and port assets. Not to be left behind, however, is Victoria with its Port of Melbourne sale, an auction that now appears set to run for much of the year.

Elsewhere, funding issues raise doubt about a Bradken takeover, Independence Group eyes a bigger slice of the giant Tropicana gold mine and Queensland may kick off its privatisation program with a port sale.
