PPCS has succeeded in attracting just over 6.6 million shares of the total nine million it needs for control of Richmond.
The most recent extension on the $3.11 offer ends on April 20. Based on the current level of acceptances PPCS would have 68.6% of Richmond's capital but a forfeiture order by the High Court would reduce this to 34% of the voting securities.
The court move yesterday was the latest in a five-year battle for control of Richmond, which has been stoutly resisted by farmer shareholders implacably opposed to PPCS.
