when the bidding war spills overseas – Riversdale mining

Earlier on  when the Rio Tinto offer was pitched ( for Riversdale mining) there were rumors of an Indian conglomerate also thinking of biding  with sketchy details of who it was really that was doing the bidding in the news  articles. Now it has emerged that  TATA steel ( Indian Company )who is already a partner ( has 24 percent stake in riversdale mining) of Riversdale mining is also  evaluating  the deal that is on offer. Now when this sort of news is in the market  Only two things can  happen

1. The price of the share ( Riversdale  Mining ) will go up  and that can benefit  Riversdale and its stake holders 

2.  Riversdale stake holders  can reap a bigger price benefit due to this price surge

Will Riversdale price rise further , will the Rio Tinto takeover go through

If the Indian consortium decides to go ahead, it will have to up Rio Tinto's offer price of $16 per share for Mozambique-focused Riversdale.

Now this  can  be a  good thing for  Riversdale mining and its stake holders  but possibly not for  any bidders like Rio Tinto  who possibly  might be pressured into putting up a higher offer due to the price surge or then just  news that is out that a rival  is also “considering”  an offer
