The lithium exploration and development company, with assets in Ghana and Ivory Coast says it rejected a non-binding offer takeover from its major shareholder Assore International Holdings Ltd, which offered 33p per share. Also notes it had rejected a prior offer from Assore at the same price. ‘The Atlantic [independent board committee] and its advisers gave careful consideration to [both offers], and determined in each instance that it undervalued Atlantic Lithium and, therefore, was not in the best interests of shareholders,’ the firm says. Atlantic adds its relationship with Assore remains ‘supportive and constructive’.
