Stratex International plc (LON:STI) has released a rebuttal to the plans of dissident shareholders led by David Hall and Paul Foord to change the strategy of the company.

Stratex cited requisitioners’ plans to combine with a partially-owned Stratex subsidiary, acquire an Egyptian gold tailings operation, and then move into base metals exploration in Botswana and Namibia.

It also argues that total current overheads amount to less than the savings the dissidents are seeking to achieve via a proposed cost-cutting exercise.
