Alto Metals Ltd - Alto Metals in trading halt ahead of exploration results
Alto has received a cash offer from Goldsea Australia Mining, a subsidiary of China's Shandong Goldsea Group

Alto Metals Ltd (ASX:AME) has been granted a trading halt by the ASX with an announcement pending in regard to exploration results.

The trading halt will be in place until the start of normal trading on Thursday, February 27, or when an announcement is made to the market, whichever occurs earliest.

Alto's shares last traded at a 12-month high of 6.5 cents, up from 3.2 cents at close on February 20.

This follows the company fielding a takeover offer from Goldsea Australia Mining Pty Ltd, an Australian subsidiary wholly-owned by Shandong Goldsea Group Co Ltd.

Last Friday, Goldsea revealed its intention to make an off-market takeover offer to acquire all Alto shares for 6.5 cents each in cash which values Alto at $20.7 million.

The offer is subject to conditions, including due diligence, a 90% minimum acceptance condition, and approval of the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB).

Alto's board of directors has subsequently advised that shareholders should take no action and await the board's formal recommendation in the Target's Statement.

This Target's Statement will be issued within 15 days of Alto receiving notice from Goldsea that the Bidder's Statement and offers have been sent to all Alto shareholders.
