Bidding war escalates for Asarco
The battle over control of bankrupt Asarco ratcheted up another notch in recent weeks with Grupo Mexico boosting its cash offer from $1.3 billion to $1.46 billion and its note to pay for asbestos clean-up from $250 million to $280 million, according to a report on Reuters.
This seems to be in response to Sterlite Industries upping their note from $1.7 billion to somewhere in the $2-3 billion range.
