Goldman Sachs part of Group to Bid for POT, see details
Per the Street.com site:
Hopu Investment Management: Multiple reports Monday pointed to this privately held, China-based private equity fund, which may be trying to put together a consortium of investors that would make a bid for Potash. Goldman Sachs (GS) is one of Hopu's investors. Goldman Sachs investment bankers are serving as advisers to Potash for the defense.
The next major turning point in the deal drama could come Wednesday, when BHP releases its latest financial results and conducts a conference call with analysts and investors.
(There is almost no doubt that POT will be acquired by someone but the real question is "Will the losing bidder go out and bid for the next best thing MOS)
