spights: Caledon Resources: long awaited acquisition by GRAM approved - http://t.co/DAH3ifO 4:23 pm by Giles Gwinnett A deal was initially struck with the Chinese firm last November and the transaction was finalised last month, after it received the official sign-off in the People's Republic The long-awaited acquistion of Caledon Resources (LON:CDN) for cash by chinese firm GRAM, one of the largest state owned enterprises - was approved today. Shareholders approved the deal in a vote today. A deal was initially struck with the Chinese firm last November and the transaction was finalised last month, after it received the official sign-off in the People's Republic. Caledon shareholders will receive £1.12 in cash for each share and the acquisition values the firm at around £313.1 million. It represents a premium of about 34 per cent of the closing Caledon share price on 5 November last year (83.75 pence) - the last day of business before the offer was made - and 100 percent of the closing price of Caledon shares on 16 September 2010 - the last business day before the offer period. The last day of dealings in Caledon shares will be on August 24, said the company

soundbuy: FT AV some comment NH I have some comment on Caledon NH for those interestedCaledon Resources PLC (CDN:LSE): Last: 93.75, up 0.25 (+0.27%), High: 95.00, Low: 93.00, Volume: 459.04k BE Someone was. I forget who. NH from a sector watcher NH I think ROK was interested I had a slight panic attack yesterday morning when Caledon Resources went to the market to raise £48.6mn at 90p/share. I didn't anticipate the move during a closed period with the Guandong Rising (GRAM) bid looming to go firm at 112p/share. The more I thought about it though, the more sense it made and the market clearly took it extremely well. The funds were utilized to repay the debt due to Polo Resources. The market had wanted this for quite some time, and Polo had never really felt comfortable with being a lending bank to Caledon. They have maintained their 29.9% shareholding thus swapping debt for equity, a clear vote of confidence in the share price. The rest of the money has been raised to fund obligations relating to the Wiggins Island port and to give the company a strong working capital position. This gives the company a strong and clean balance sheet giving them a firmer hand in its negotiations with potential suitors. My conversation with Peter Seear recently indicated that while the mine at Cooke was unaffected by the flooding in Queensland, getting crews to-and-from the site was difficult, and getting the coal that has been produced out on the rail line was a non-starter. Caledon is producing, but they can't move it and they can't sell it. All this activity has been with the consent of GRAM, so as far as everybody is concerned, the interest is still very much there, we just await a firm bid. The fact that the placing was over-subscribed and introduced a number of new institutional shareholders into Caledon means 90p is now a new floor in the share price. The potential return is 20%, the best risk-arb spread currently on offer in the market Polo Resources have issued an investment update this morning with an updated NAV of 7.06pence. The shares closed last night at 4.88p a discount of 44.67%. You can see the full RNS on your screens, but the two main holding are Caledon and GCM Resources. If Caledon is taken out soon, then Polo will be sitting on another cash pile. They paid a special dividend out last year which proved very popular. It is unclear where the group would wish to invest moving forward, having focused so far on coal and uranium. It has to me point worth making, but every investment these guys undertaken has returned a profit. That discount has drifted out from around 30% a couple of months ago. That is a more typical discount for a holding company structure, this is too cheap.

spights: Investment Update Share this article TIDMPOL TIDMCDN RNS Number : 4616Z Polo Resources Limited 14 January 2011 14 January 2011 Polo Resources Limited ("Polo Resources", "Polo" or "the Company") Investment Update Polo Resources Limited (AIM and TSX: POL), announces an update on its investments and Net Asset Value ("NAV") per share as at 31 December 2010. NAV per ordinary share: 7.06 pence1-5 The Company's issued share capital consists of 2,364,678,955 ordinary shares of no par value each. None of these ordinary shares are held in Treasury. The fully diluted share capital of the Company consists of 2 380,678,955 ordinary shares. As at 31 December 2010, Polo's investment portfolio as a percentage of NAV comprises the following: Listed Investments =========================================================== ==== Caledon Resources plc Ordinary Shares 37% =========================================================== ==== GCM Resources plc Ordinary Shares 24% =========================================================== ==== Debt Investments =========================================================== ==== Caledon Resources plc 8.5% Convertible Loan Notes @ 47.5p 3% =========================================================== ==== Caledon Resources plc Loan Advance 9% =========================================================== ==== Caledon Resources plc Loan Advance 2% =========================================================== ==== Non Listed Investments =========================================================== ==== Ironstone Resources Limited 3% =========================================================== ==== Other Investments 5% =========================================================== ==== Net cash and other receivables 17% =========================================================== ==== Note: 1. Share prices as at 31 December 2010. 2. Per share figures based on fully diluted ITM shares at a closing price of 5.04 pence per Polo share. 3. Caledon 8.5% GBP2.5 million assumed converted into shares where share price exceeds the conversion price. 4. Caledon loan advance plus facility fee repayable by 28 February 2011. 5. Unaudited net asset value per share as at 31 December 2010. The NAV at 31st December 2010 would be restated to 7.43 pence on the basis that the indicated offer price of GBP1.12p by Guangdong Rising (GRAM) had become unconditional. Update on Investments During December 2010 the Company made a C$8 million investment in Ironstone Resources Limited ("Ironstone"), a private Canadian company which owns the Clear Hills Iron Ore/Vanadium Project ("Clear Hills") in Alberta, Canada. Clear Hills currently has a resource of 203 million tonnes of iron ore at a grade of 33% designated under Canadian National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101). Historic work (pre NI 43-101) in the 1950's estimated a resource of over 1 billion tonnes of iron ore at Clear Hills thus providing a good opportunity for Ironstone to increase its NI 43-101 resource significantly through its planned drilling campaign over the next few months. In addition Ironstone is due to extract a 20,000 tonne bulk sample as feed for a pilot plant later in the year as part of its work towards a feasibility study on Clear Hills. The project has also demonstrated significant vanadium by-product and gold assays in recent core samples suggesting the potential for further credits from those commodities. Caledon Resources plc ("Caledon") On 13 January 2011 Polo announced that it has agreed to subscribe for such number of new ordinary shares of Caledon at 90p per share in the second tranche of a conditional placing (the "Placing") as will result in Polo holding 29.9per cent of the enlarged issued share capital of Caledon. Closing of the Placing is conditional upon the passing of certain shareholders resolutions to be proposed at a general meeting of Caledon. Repayment of loans of GBP14.5 million and AUS$4 million due from Caledon to Polo on 28 February 2011, together with associated fees, costs and interest, will be set off against the amount due from Polo to Caledon under the Placing. Polo will subscribe for 21,226,324 shares in the placing resulting in a net outlay by Polo after set off, of approximately GBP750,000. Following the successful conclusion of the conditional placing, Polo will hold 83,311,521 shares in Caledon. It is expected that the Placing will close on or about 4 February 2011. GCM Resources plc ("GCM") GCM continues to cement relationships with the key players within the Bangladesh Government and there is almost universal acceptance that coal has a unique role to play in meeting the country's energy requirements. Similarly, it is now accepted that open pit mining is the only feasible means of delivering the volumes of coal required in an economically, socially and environmentally acceptable way. The Phulbari Coal Project is the only coal project in the country that has been subject to a full social and environmental impact assessment and feasibility study and so this is the only project for which the economics and timetable to development are known with any certainty. Management believe it would take at least two years to bring one of the other potential projects in the country to this stage. Other Investments During the six months ending 31st December 2010, Polo made several listed and non listed investments in respect of which unaudited gains of GBP1.2 million were realised and GBP700,000 were unrealised at the period end. Polo is continuously seeking to identify undervalued investment opportunities both for short term and long term investment in accordance with its stated investment policy. Contacts:

fordtin: Chris, unless the holder is desperate to increase their voting rights in a hurry or acquire a very large block of stock without pushing the market price up significantly, I can't see any point in exercising warrants or converting loan notes which have a strike price above market share price. I suspect the unexercised Caledon warrants and long term loan notes may be exchanged for Polo warrants & Polo loan notes @ a similar ratio to the share exchange. I've noticed that the way I've arranged my spreadsheet there is a self destruct loop in that a fall in the CDN share price has a leveraged effect on the combined company's SOTP valuation. I messed around with various other ways of valuing the CDN coal project and the most stable seems to be to link it to the price which Polo have suggested they may offer. ie (the number of CDN shares in issue including in the money options * 11.4 * Polo's share price) + £7.2m loan notes. Does that make any sense to you?

theb1gf: asian markets a little mixed this morning,China has a two month waiting list on cars,as car sales jumped "beyond imagination",talk again on downturn slowing/easing and things in general getting better. Uk housing market improving,GDP turning.In the US economy mixed news,sales at US retailers in May "probably rose for the first time in three months",although house foreclosure filings top 300,000 for the third month in a row. If the market is forward looking,it does indeed look like world economy is starting to turn for the better and i really hope this can be taken into account for the CDN share price. Would love to see a mid 60,s price EOD today,its a great sunny morning so far in Brum,off later into work as i have a meeting with the administrators task team from PWC,good news is i will get a little more money than first thought,23 years service,holiday entitlement to claim,and as the was no notice given,we were all sacked with imdiate effect can claim 12 weeks money for that.Bad news as i have savings and my payments will take me over 5,500 pounds i cant claim dole,im expected to support myself till my money runs out.they want all bank accounts i hold,do i have shares,p bonds,property i may own or rent.is it just me or am i wrong in thinking whatever i have,i have earned and bought with my money??,and has nothing to do with them,i would be better off if i would have got smashed every night or stuck it up my nose or in my arm,rather than be sensible and saved and tried to make a better life for myself. Still,hope for another great day here to improve my grumpy mood,incresed my holding to just over 85,000 yesterday all bought and paid for.which of course they want to know about ;-).

papillon: 25cent, you keep making the bogus comparison between VOG and CDN. CDN own their coal deposits whereas the KAZAKSTAN authorities reckon that VOG don't own the KEMERKOL oil resource!! No wonder the VOG share price is only a few pennies. A legal dispute over ownership has a very big adverse effect on the sp, believe me. If the AUSTRALIAN authorities decided that there was a doubt over CDN's legal claim on its coal reserves then the CDN share price would be a few pennies!! I think its better to do business in Australia than Kazakstan!!

bozzy_s: cufes2 - see this really good post from earlier. Difference is due to the cost of getting the resources out the ground. Doesn't matter if there's $1bn of coal, if it costs $1.1bn to get it out, it's not worth much at the moment. 25cent - 7 May'09 - 19:48 - 14914 of 14935 What good is that when it costs them more to mine it than they can sell it for right now? Fools gold! I think a lot of people on this thread dont undesratnd CDN and the cook mine. Why do you think its trading at 36p with a takeover premium? If only it was all just about JORC reserve estimates, how easy it would be investing in small cap minners?? The cdn share price is relevant to the risk involved in both the mining of the old cook field and the gamble on future coal prices getting above production costs. Others in the sector with less or similar reserves have a lot less production costs per ton hence why their valuation is above that of CDN as the inherent risk is lower the less your production costs are. This kind of illustrates what i am talking about RNS Number:7296S Victoria Oil & Gas PLC 17 October 2005 17 October 2005 35 Million Barrels of Oil Reserves Secured Following Kemerkol Transaction, Kazakhstan * Kemerkol Oil Project, Kazakhstan - Total proven C1 category reserves of 8.7 million barrels of oil and probable C2 reserves of 26.3 million barrels * Transaction completed for under US$2 per barrel of proven C1 reserves * Licence area increased from 12 to 65 square kilometres - no increase in Minimum Work Programme * First oil production expected early 2006 Share price today? 2p
