Goldcorp to delay buying shares in Osisko until judgment

|About: Goldcorp Inc. (GG)|By:, SA News Editor

Goldcorp (GG) agrees to effectively freeze its hostile C$2.78B offer for Osisko Mining (OSKFF) as a judge sets a March 3 date for a court trial; Goldcorp also says it won’t buy or pay for any Osisko shares sold into the bid before a judgment from the trial.

Osisko started the lawsuit to stop the takeover last month, alleging Goldcorp misused confidential data; Goldcorp has denied the allegations.
