SK Networks says drops plan to buy stake in Cockatoo Coal
SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's SK Networks Co Ltd (001740.KS) said on Monday that it has decided not to buy a stake in Australia's Cockatoo Coal Ltd (COK.AX).
Last month, the South Korean trading and resources company said it planned to purchase a 40 percent stake in Cockatoo Coal for A$313 million ($332.36 million) as part of efforts to expand overseas resources development.
"We have decided not to pursue an investment in Australia's Cockatoo Coal as a result of an internal review,' SK Networks said in regulatory filing, without elaborating.
