Equator Resources Ltd to merge with First Cobalt

Equator Resources Ltd (ASX: CO1), now known as Cobalt One, could be about to go through yet another name change in the near future.

This morning the cobalt miner revealed plans to merge with Canada-based First Cobalt.

According to the release, First Cobalt has made a non-binding, conditional expression of interest to acquire 100% of the shares in Cobalt One by way of a court approved scheme of arrangement.

While the proposal is subject to a number of conditions, including due diligence, both parties have signed a letter of intent to create a leading pure-play cobalt exploration company.

Under the terms of the proposal, Cobalt One shareholders would receive 0.145 of a First Cobalt common share for each Cobalt One ordinary share. This represents the equivalent of 11 Australian cents per Cobalt One share.

Which is 10% higher than where the Cobalt One share price traded at prior to the trading halt.

5 stocks under $5

We hear it over and over from investors, "I wish I had bought Altium or Afterpay when they were first recommended by The Motley Fool. I'd be sitting on a gold mine!" And it's true.

And while Altium and Afterpay have had a good run, we think these 5 other stocks are screaming buys. And you can buy them now for less than $5 a share!
