Chinese company Hanlong reportedly failed to meet Sundance’s funding terms
Sydney - Arabstoday

Chinese company Hanlong reportedly failed to meet Sundance’s funding terms Shareholders in Australian iron ore company Sundance Resources saw their investment halve Tuesday after a billion-dollar takeover agreement with China's Hanlong Group collapsed. Sundance terminated the prolonged Aus$1.3bn (US$1.35bn) deal after almost two years of negotiations when it became apparent that Hanlong could not meet funding conditions.
No reason was given for the privately-owned company missing a deadline to provide information on how it will finance the deal, which would have allowed it to acquire all the issued share capital of Sundance.
But Chinese media last week reported that Hanlong's chairman Liu Han was being held by police on suspicion of harbouring his brother, who has been arrested for murder.
The website of the Economic Daily newspaper also quoted sources as saying Liu was suspected of laundering money through casinos in Macau, the former Portuguese colony which was handed back to China in 1999.
The bid was also marred by allegations of insider trading.
The Africa-focused Sundance said discussions were now under way with other parties as part of an ongoing strategy to develop its Mbalam-Nabeba iron ore project.
"Sundance believes that it continues to receive support from the governments of Cameroon and Republic of Congo and from China for this project," Sundance chairman George Jones said in a statement.
"The Mbalam-Nabeba project has been globally recognised as an excellent asset, which is financially robust and will unlock a new world class iron ore region in Africa," he said.
"We are confident that we can find a suitable partner to help us bring this project into production."
Despite the fighting words, Sundance shares slumped when a trading halt was lifted Tuesday morning, halving to under 10 cents before recovering slightly to end 47.6 percent lower at 11 cents.
Ahead of the trading halt, shares were worth 21 cents, having almost halved since December.
Hanlong is a diversified company with interests ranging from tourism to minerals and assets of more than 20bn yuan ($3.2bn), according to its website.
