Glencore lays out final bid for Xstrata

London - Commodities trader Glencore laid out its revised $36bn all-share bid for miner Xstrata on Monday, raising its offer as expected but warning it would not improve the terms further.

Glencore, the miner's largest shareholder, confirmed its offer was now 3.05 new shares for every Xstrata share held, up from 2.8. The deal provides for Glencore's own chief executive, Ivan Glasenberg, to take the helm of the combined group, again as expected, but only after an interim period under Xstrata's Mick Davis.

"Glencore confirms that it is an all-share merger, and it will not increase the merger ratio further," Glencore said

"The increased merger ratio represents a substantial premium for a company with a 34% shareholder."
