BHP Will Lodge Motion to Remove Legal Obstacle to Potash Bid
BHP said it plans to file a motion challenging a lawsuit filed by Potash Corp., which alleges that BHP misrepresented material facts related to the bid.
Potash Corp. rejected BHP Billiton's bid in August, saying it was "grossly inadequate." BHP then took the offer to Potash Corp's shareholders, while Potash Corp. went looking for other offers.
China's Sinochem is working on a challenge to BHP's bid, but it is struggling to find a partner, Reuters said.
