Link Administration Holdings Limited (LNK) revealed yesterday its Board would not be able to recommend Dye & Durham’s revised $4.30 per share offer for control of the company. Dye & Durham reduced its offer price down from $5.50 per share to reflect a potential undertaking with the ACCC to obtain its approval, as well as changes in market valuations of PEXA, Link and the broader market. LNK will continue to engage with Dye & Durham as to whether an agreement can be reached. LNK has postponed its Special General Meeting from 13 July to a date yet to be determined. LNK shares fell 0.26% to close at $3.79.

Suncorp Group Limited (SUN) provided an update yesterday in relation to the weather events impacting NSW and parts of South-East Queensland. CEO Steve Johnston said that the group had dealt with 35 separate events and over 120,000 natural hazard claims across FY22 at an expected cost of approximately $1.1 billion. With this being inline with previous guidance figures. Looking ahead, SUN said that it expects its FY23 natural hazard allowance to increase to $1,160 million, reflective of the changes to the reinsurance program and the FY22 hazard experience. SUN shares rose 0.73% to close at $11.02.

The Australian cash rate is expected to be raised 50bps to 1.35% in today’s July meeting, up from the current rate of 0.85%. This follows a 50bp increase to the cash rate in the June meeting, as pressure increased on the RBA to return inflation to within the targeted range.
