VIDEO: Peabody, ArcelorMittal go hostile for Macarthur

Published August 1, 2011 at 1:11 PM

Peabody Energy Corp. and ArcelorMittal went hostile on Monday with their takeover bid for Australia's Macarthur Coal Ltd., taking their sweetened A$4.7 billion ($5.1 billion) offer directly to shareholders. The hostile bid may point to "the start of a super cycle of M&A that's going to be fed by obvious demand from Chinese and Indian steelmakers in particular," says Scott Sonnenblick, a partner at law firm Linklaters, in this video interview with The Deal Pipeline.
