News 9 | Lithium-ion Bull (Forest Hills) Highlights Article by Evan Epstein on Tianqi-Nutrien-SQM Transaction.


Lithium-ion Bull (Forest Hills), is a periodic commentary about companies supplying lithium and other raw materials that will meet the disruptive demand from widespread adoption of Electric Vehicles and Utility Storage.

On its latest commentary dated July 23rd, 2018, the author, Howard Klein, stated:

"I believe US and/or EU antitrust authorities should examine this deal, not just Chilean ones. Chilean-born and California-based corporate governance expert Evan Epstein writes articulately about The $4.1 Billion Lithium Deal That is Flying Under the Radar of U.S. Regulators. I agree with him that the FTC, DOJ, CFIUS or other US enforcement body have ground to pursue a case involving NYSE-listed Nutrien and SQM."
