Kitco News

July 22 (Reuters) - British hedge fund Odey Asset Management said on Monday it intends to vote, on behalf of its clients, in favour of Barrick Gold Corp's final offer to buy out its fellow shareholders in Acacia Mining.


The approval comes after Odey said last month that it would reject any offer from Barrick for its stake in Acacia that is framed as "best and final". Odey holds a 2.31% stake in Acacia according to Refinitiv Eikon data.
