DataRoom AM: Slippery merger

The planned merger between Roc Oil and Horizon has caused some ripples, while investment banks are reportedly gauging private equity interest in Goodman Fielder.

Investment banks are welcoming the latest sign of enhanced M&A activity as Roc Oil and Horizon Oil merge to create a much more significant energy firm. But not everyone’s happy with the ‘friendly’ merger, with a key shareholder airing some none-too-friendly sentiments.

Elsewhere, Goodman Fielder gets shopped around, the auction for the Port of Newcastle nears a conclusion and Archer Capital weighs up a bid for Mantra Group.
