HOUSTON (ICIS news)--US nitrogen fertilizer maker Terra Industries said on Tuesday that CF Industries’ three nominees elected last month to the Terra board received 38% of the 84,332,541 eligible votes of shareholders, compared with 36% of the vote for Terra’s incumbent directors.
Shareholders of Iowa-based Terra elected Illinois-based CF’s three nominees: John Lilly, president of John Lilly Strategic Insights; David Wilson, president of the Graduate Management Admission Council; and Irving Yoskowitz, senior counsel at law firm Dickstein Shapiro.
Meanwhile, CF on Tuesday also extended its right to $2.5bn (€1.68bn) of financing commitments for the acquisition of rival Terra until 31 December.
CF said it does not have any right to extend the financing commitments beyond 31 December unless a merger agreement is signed by that date.
CF has attempted to acquire Terra since January, and its most recent offer was $24.50 in cash and 0.1034 of a share of CF for each share of Terra.
