|Quoting Antares (Reply 1):|
I would pay especial attention to Temasek in relation to Virgin Blue not because of what that airline might do, but because it might take sides in the Toll hostile takeover bid for Patrick Corp which owns 62 % of Virgin Blue.
|Quoting Zeke (Reply 2):|
Not sure if its Temasek or SQ that own 49% of VS, with 49% of VS and VB (either directly of via SQ) will give Singapore the ability to take away from QF on the Pacific route.
|Quoting Oz777 (Reply 6):|
Remember this - Toll have a very big relationship with Railway interests, even more so with the NZ Government. The fact that QF is looking a taking some of Toll's (ie the Patrick) shareholding in Pacific National, and the NZ interests could see a VERY different shareholding in Virgin.
|Quoting Bill142 (Reply 15):|
Isn't the limit for a single shareholder 25% with no more then 49% being held by the combined foreign sharholders? or is that limited to Qantas?
