Plains Demanded No Freeport Investor Vote as Condition of Deal

December 28, 2012

Plains Exploration & Production Co. (PXP:US), which earlier this month agreed to be bought by Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (FCX:US), told Freeport it wasn’t interested in a deal if it required a vote by the acquirer’s shareholders, according to a filing.

Plains terminated talks with Freeport on the deal in September and restarted them a month later, Houston-based Plains said today in a filing.
