READ: Alto Metals board recommends shareholders reject Middle Island Offer

The company released a letter to shareholders yesterday stating that Alto’s board unanimously recommends shareholders reject the takeover offer from Middle Island Resources (ASX:MDI).

The letter said: “Middle Island’s understanding of the value of Alto has clearly increased through their presence in the Sandstone Goldfield.

“Your directors believe that Middle Island now recognises the inherent value of Alto’s Sandstone Project and the 818 square kilometres of the Archean Sandstone Goldfield controlled by Alto, which your directors have long believed to be one of the most prospective gold provinces in Western Australia today.”

Alto’s three largest shareholders, who collectively own or control 32.12% of the company’s shares, have indicated that they do not intend to accept the offer.
