    BHP shares fall after Anglo American rejects third proposal, extends bid deadline

    BHP, the world's biggest listed mining group, now has until May 29 to make a binding offer for Anglo American or it will be forced to walk away for at least six months, under the UK's takeover rules. The May 29 deadline coincides with general elections in South Africa, where Anglo was formed and is still of significant national importance. Last week, Anglo announced plans to either spin-off or sell its less profitable coal, nickel, diamond and platinum businesses to refocus on copper.

    Anglo leaves door open to engage with BHP after spurning third offer

    LONDON (Reuters) -Anglo American has agreed to a one-week extension for BHP Group to make a binding takeover offer, it said on Wednesday, after rejecting a third proposal from its rival that valued it at 38.6 billion pounds ($49.18 billion). BHP, the world's biggest listed mining group, has now made three unsuccessful offers in a month for Anglo, which has itself outlined a plan to divest its less profitable coal, nickel, diamond and platinum businesses. The structure of any deal and the fate of Anglo's businesses in South Africa remain big obstacles, with Anglo chairman Stuart Chambers highlighting concerns about completion and execution risks in BHP's proposal.
