China’s government is thought to be unwilling to put up more than around a quarter of the funds needed to block BHP’s $130-a-share offer, while attempts by state chemical firm Sinochem to court potential co-investors are said to have fallen on unreceptive ears.On Friday, BHP filed a motion in a Chicago court, asking it to dismiss a lawsuit brought by PotashCorp over a week ago. PotashCorp claimed BHP fed the market misleading information in order to drive down potash prices and allow it to make a low-ball offer. But BHP said the complaint “offers only implausible, uncorroborated and largely irrelevant speculation”, adding that shareholders have access to all the relevant information to make a decision on the deal.
