The document, dated March 4, contemplated a deal in which CCCC would acquire a 51 per cent interest in Toronto-based Allana for $156 million. CCCC would then take charge of financing and construction responsibilities on Allana’s US$700 million Danakhil potash project in Ethiopia.

Ultimately, the two sides did not move beyond this framework agreement to reach a firm deal. On March 26, Allana agreed to a takeover offer from Israel Chemicals Ltd. (ICL) worth $137 million.
