Matex plans to buy Blackgold Holdings Hong Kong in a Sin$475 million (Aus$348.7 million) reverse takeover. As well as the four underground mines – Caotang, Heiwan, Baolong and Changhong – the sale includes Blackgold Holdings' associated coal trading and logistics busi- nesses. It will result in the subsidiary being listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Matex, a dye maker for the textile industry, entered into a legally binding Heads of Agree- ment on December 30, 2014 with Blackgold International, the Australian-listed company which owns Blackgold Holdings HK. Under the conditional agreement, Matex will pay Sin$25 million of the acquisition costs in cash, and the rest of the Sin$450 million, subject to adjustment, in shares. If successful, Matex will own four mines with combined proven and probable reserves of 100.7 million tonnes. Matex said, "The proposed acquisition will provide an opportunity for the group to ven- ture into the energy sector, and participate in coal mining and trading in China, for the bene- ft of the company and its shareholders." The acquisition is likely to constitute: • In respect to Matex, a reverse take- over, under Chapter 10 of the SGX-ST listing manual and will be subject to the approval of Matix shareholders and the SGX. • In respect of Blackgold, a disposal of the company's major undertaking under ASX listing rule 11.2, which will be sub- ject to the approval of its shareholders. Blackgold states that total coal produc- tion from the four mines for the frst half of the 2015 fnancial year ending April 30 was 459,000 tonnes, 32.7% lower than the 681,600 tonnes produced in the corre- sponding period of 2014. There were some uncertainties over the general coal industry in China and as such the company decid- ed to slow down production in mid-2014 to reassess market conditions and reserve its resources for better pricing in the future. Blackgold sells all its thermal coal within China. In the six months ending April 30, 2015, the company's trading arm sold al- most 1.825 million tonnes, a decrease of about 15.1% compared to the frst half of the previous fnancial year. Comparing with results for the six months ended April 30, 2014, proft from ordinary activities decreased by Aus$14 million from $21.7 million to $7.7 million for the six months ended April 30, 2015. The Heiwan mine is one of Blackgold's two ther- mal coal mines in Fengjie County of Chongqing Province and one of four within the province. Blackgold to sell four coal mines
