Small investors battle China’s bid for London-listed lithium miner

Dawood Patel, who has a £60,000 stake in Aim-stated Bacanora, stated: “We have tried to get in get in touch with with management but have been brushed off. The announcement acknowledges us with no executing so straight.”

Nevertheless, Metropolis policies say that 30pc of the shares will need to be controlled by a team for a live performance social gathering to exist.

As the small buyers are not breaching the 1pc personal shareholding threshold they do not will need to declare their stakes when they trade shares.

A spokesman for Bacanora, which is producing a lithium mine in Mexico, explained the wording in the regulatory submitting as a “very common clause in a takeover situation”.

Ganfeng currently has a 17.5pc stake in Aim-stated Bacanora, which it currently plans to maximize to 30pc. 3 weeks ago the company revealed a non-binding sixty seven.5p-a-share approach in May well, which the board stated it “would anticipate to recommend”. It has till June 3 to table a formal present.

Modest buyers, however, declare Bacanora could be worth 500p a share.
