Tuesday, September 25, 2007. Issue 3750. Page 5. Severstal Raises Stake in Celtic to 26.6% By Catrina Stewart Staff Writer Severstal has raised its stake in gold miner Celtic Resources by 4.6 percent, fueling speculation that the steel firm will make a full bid for the London-listed company. In a statement to the London Stock Exchange on Monday, Severstal, which is controlled by Alexei Mordashov, said its subsidiary Bluecove Limited now holds a 26.6 percent in the company. In August, Severstal acquired a 22 percent stake in Celtic Resources. Analysts estimated the deal at about $12 million. Sergei Loktionov, a spokesman for mining division Severstal Resurs, declined to comment on whether Severstal would make a full takeover bid, saying the company does not disclose its acquisition plans. Last week, Celtic Resources said it had received a preliminary approach, which could lead to an offer for the company. Celtic did not provide any further details, but analysts speculated that Severstal would be the most likely suitor. "It's a very good deal for Celtic Resources shareholders," said Andre Kroupnik, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets. "But we're a little bit puzzled about Severstal's reasons for the transaction. ... [Celtic Resources] doesn't have any really big valuable assets." Marat Gabitov, a metals analyst at Aton brokerage, said he expected Severstal to make a full takeover approach for Celtic, while also seeking out other small gold plays. "I think Mordashov has decided to pursue the gold story," Gabitov said, noting that based on current multiples, Celtic Resources is a relative bargain. Mordashov said in early September that he was looking at setting up a separate gold mining company. Mordashov's move on Celtic comes at a time when the gold price is nearing a 28-year high, hovering around $735 per ounce Monday. It has been buoyed recently by the weakening dollar and the ongoing uncertainty on financial markets. Goldman Sachs raised its gold forecasts Monday, predicting gold to trade up to $800 per ounce from a previous estimate of $715 on a six-month horizon. "We believe that gold continues to gain support from the structural alignment in the relationship between gold and the U.S. dollar, driven mainly by rising consumer and central bank demand in the rapidly growing emerging markets," the bank said in a note to investors.

Selling now is very foolish indeed. Any bid from Severstal must come at the minimum price they have paid for stock over the last year i.e. 232p. But let's see if Severstal will be challenged as this will potentially result in a more significant premium. I just can't understand why Foo will give it away here.

Tsmith I was thinking the same. Just like I can't understand that there are still people selling with all the good news and a possible bid + these large spreads. Strange.

As bidder I'd open @ 260p (as at Monday a.m.), hoping to only get auctioned up to c. 300p, 350 max. That's a straight fight. Could get lucky if 3 buyers involved & bid higher, just IMHO. Nice shares with a good future anyway.

STAND BY FOR ACTION.... ICBidwatch: Russians come for Celtic Created: 21 September 2007 Written by: Jonas Crosland Aim traded gold miner Celtic Resources has become the latest company in the small-cap mining sector to receive a bid approach, which in standard bid speak, may or may not lead to an offer for the company. So far it has not mentioned the name of its suitor, but the smart money is on Severstal, the Russian steel company, mainly because it already owns a 22 per cent stake which it bought last month as part of its strategy to move away from coking coal and iron ore. If the Russians are successful they will only have to go down the road to survey their new prize, because Celtic Resources owns a number of gold mines in Kazakhstan, a 50 per cent stake in a molybdenum mine (also in Kazakhstan) and a copper-gold project in the Chelybinsk region in Russia.

TigerInvest, I think your assumption of £4.00 would be close to the price we should be able to consider.There is a lot of upside with increased production and some further aquisitions would surely see this as a lot better share than we see at the moment.If the bidders are on the move at this price we can assume they are at the botttom and up is the only way to go. If those of us who see the value much higher are smart we will be buying at these prices.I will be getting a few more before the real action starts. Chevyplus

I think #4 would be a fair price for this years production, but this is not just about this years production, there is potentially much more to come in the form of increased production at Suzdal, increased production at Shorskoye plus the other projects. Even better still the company has the money to progress with these plans. So ....I agree with Tiger.

HPreston I cannot understand why you are trying to make an issue of this, whatever you think it does not alter the fact that it appears that at least three companies could be interested in CELTIC RESOURCES and nobody knows at what price they may make a bid....I hope its £3 and above.

Kibb, The potential bidders seem to recognise this value as well, still by the look of it there are still some people who are prepared to sell at todays prices, very silly and or strange.

There seems to be a reasonable amount of pessimism regarding any offer price. I would be interested to hear of other peoples valuations, mine is obviously significantly higher than most on here. Assuming that it is Severstal that is bidding, they would still need to convince the other major shareholders to sell. In my opinion (formed from recent results and news releases) this share is very cheap, it is well capitalized and is able to fund the mooted increases in production. Cashflow from 150 k oz, assuming it can be achieved, would be substantial and support a share price a multiple of where we are now. K

HPreston - crystal balls NOT REQUIRED IF YOU SEARCH LIKE I DO Celtic Resources in takeover approach Source:Ireland Digital Date:18/09/2007 06:59:50 Celtic Resources, an Irish precious metals prospecting company, today confirmed that it had received a takeover offer. Celtic has not yet named the bidder, but several companies are thought to be interested. In August, OAO Severstal, a Russian steel producer, said it acquired a 22 percent stake in Celtic for an undisclosed cash sum, while Newcrest Mining Ltd and Gold Fields Ltd are other names reported to be in the frame. Newcrest Mining is Australia's biggest independent gold miner and recently announced plans for a financial restructure funded by the sale of new shares worth A$2 billion. A release detailing the plans said that this would: "improve the company's ability to fund project capital expenditure at its existing sites and undertake growth opportunities." Celtic Resources owns mines in Kazakhstan and shares in projects in Russia. The company said that would release further statements regarding the takeover in due course.

You obviously have a crystal ball Sagem. No one else seems to know how many companies are looking at Celtic. And why would you sell for less than 4pound as they are worth that much and more H

Their are at least three mineral companies looking at CELTIC and without doubt Celtic will be bought but not under £3 per share

Well in a way I hpoe they dont get bought - because of the significant shareholding there would be no other suitors and we then have an independent attractivly valued company
