Mining Weekly reported that Yancoal Australia Ltd.’s (ASX:YAL) share price dropped over 15 percent after Yanzhou Coal Mining Company Ltd. (NYSE:YZC), its parent company, decided against privatizing it.

As quoted in the market news:

Under the Chinese group’s proposal, Yanzhou had been set to acquire the remaining 22% of Yancoal’s issued shares from its minority shareholders in exchange for 0.91 Yanzhou CHESS depositary interests for every share held.

Yancoal on Tuesday said that it had now been notified that Yanzhou would no longer pursue its privatisation bid, with the junior failing to give a reason.
