BVI company updates information on its merger agreement

BVI-registered MDM Engineering Group Limited, a mineral process engineering and project management company focused on the mining industry, noted the announcement made by Sedgman Limited, and made an update on its proposed merger with Sedgman which was originally announced on 28 November 2012.

The merger remained subject to a number of conditions, as it was stated in the announcement on 28 November 2012. As a result of a recent volatility in commodity prices, some of MDM’s prospective clients reassessed the timing of commencement of certain large scale expansion projects. The delay in some of these projects will result in MDM not being able to satisfy the condition precedent, contained in the Merger Implementation Agreement agreed with Sedgman as announced on 28 November 2012.

MDM Engineering and Sedgman are currently negotiating revised Merger terms. The approvals from Tanzania and South Africa competition commissions have already been obtained. Further updates will be provided on the merger agreement.
