On 25 January 2019, AIC Resources Limited (ASX: A1C) has announced the extension of offer period for off-market takeover bid by Intrepid Mines Limited (ASX: IAU).

Intrepid Mines Limited had made offers under an off-market takeover bid for all of the ordinary shares in the Target (AIC Resources Limited).

Intrepid Mines Limited has advised that they applied for ASIC relief to further extend the offers to 7:00 pm (Sydney time) on 4 February 2019 (it represents a further extension to the Offers of seven days). In case, Intrepid Mines did not get any relief from ASIC (The Australian Securities and Investments Commission), then they would not be able to extend the offers further.

As such, Intrepid Mines Limited hereby varies the offers and the accompanying documents by extending the close of the offer period from 7:00 pm (Sydney time) on Monday, 28 January 2019 to 7.00pm (Sydney time) on Monday, 4 February 2019.
