    Inmet Mining (IEMMF.PK) says it will waive its poison pill takeover defense against a hostile offer by First Quantum (FQVLF.PK) and hints it may execute unspecified strategic alternatives to the $5.1B bid.

    In its expected rejection of First Quantum's (FQVLF.PK) $5.1B hostile bid, Inmet Mining (IEMMF.PK) disputed First's assertion it could realize enormous cost savings at Cobre Panama by using its internal project team and hiring far fewer contractors. “To suggest you can take an engineering management component out and self-perform on a project of that size is reckless,” Inmet CEO Jochen Tilk says.

FNV CEO David Harquail says he is impressed with Inmet’s handling of the project so far, and harbors doubts about First Quantum’s proposal to build the mine for significantly less money.
