The company, through its funding vehicle MG Unit Trust, also said that Chief Financial Officer David Mallinson would step down at completion of the takeover which is expected on May 1.

    The deal on Wednesday received approval from Australia’s foreign investment regulator, the last of approvals required for it to go through, after Murray shareholders approved the takeover earlier this month.
