Company officials have de- clined to give reasons for In- co's zealousness in trying to acquire ESB, which is a manufacturing concern. Inco is the largest primary producer of nickel in the non- Communist world.. But Bell. Gouinlock. and Co. Ltd.. a Toronto investment re- search firm, in a recent in- vestment letter said the takeover is "an excellent first move a logical merger of products, skills and mutual objectives." It says ESB's main areas of growth have been toward bat- teries for the operation of con- sumer goods and there have been recent attempts to ex- pand into electric Illinois, heat-to-electric conversion systems, and small nuclear power systems. "The latter areas of growth are very much in harmony with Inco's vertical integra- tion objectives, for the batteries of the future are those based on nickel and related elements, whereas heat-to-electric conversion and the whole field of nuclear power relies on massive con- sumption of nickel." The decision Monday by ESB management to recom- mend acceptance of Inco's offer of a share for "any and all" of ESB's 5.5 million common shares ended 11 days of dramatic international bidding against United Aircraft Corp. of Hartford. Conn. On July 18 Inco offered 'Shipbuilding' industries to be nationalized LONDON (Reuter) The Labor government announced plans today to nationalize most of the British shipbuilding and ship-repair in- dustries, as well as marine engineering. Industry Secretary Tony Benn made the an- nouncement in the House of Commons, leading to a noisy row with the Conservative opposition. Benn said compensa- tion will be paid for the 13 major shipbuilding companies, 13 ship-re- pairing companies and specialist diesel-makers brought into public ownership. Small firms will not be taken over. Benn said the industry has not invested for the future, to get an increasing share of the world market or to provide secure employ- ment for workers. Conservative MP Michael Heseltine ac- cused Benn of seeking to impose a docUina! solu- tion to the shipbuilding industry's problems and said there is no evi- dence it will succeed. Detailed proposals for the takeovers will be set out in a white paper later this year and in the meantime discussions will be held with interested parties. However, an election may intervene in Oc- tober, with Labor's policies, including na- tionalization, being sub- mitted for voter approval. Benn. a controversial figure because of his left-wing views, told Parliament: 'The (shipbuilding) industry will be unable to com- pete effectively in the world market unless there are changes to allow more efficient use of resources, further investment and moder- nization. Funds for this are unlikely to be available from private sources." Despite a growing de- mand for ships. Britain only 3.6 per cent of the world's total at the end of 1973. he :-.aid. All-Canadian pipeline route proposal opposed TORONTO (CP) A natural gas pipeline through the Mackenzie River valley carrying only gas from the Canadian Arctic would be wasteful, William Wilder, chairman of Arctic Gas Study Ltd.. said Wednesday. Commenting on an an- nouncement earlier in the day by representatives of Alberta Gas Trunk Line Ltd. in Calgary. Mr. Wilder said the AGTL proposal for an all- Canadian line would not provide the best transporta- tion service for the Canadian consumer. Alberta Gas Trunk, one of 26 corporations that make up the Arctic Gas Study Ltd. con- sortium, said Wednesday it sees the idea of a Canadian- only line as a reasonable alter- native to the consortium's proposal to build a pipeline carrying both Mackenzie delta and Alaskan North Slope gas. Mr. Wilder said he is con- vinced that the joint pipeline system wtll provide the cheap- est and fastest supplies of natural gas for the domestic market. He said the Arctic Gas Study consortium thinks that an international line, running from Prudhoe Bay. Alaska, to the delta and then south through the Mackenzie valley is the best way to use the northern gas resources. t'nited entered with Inco raised it to United match- ed it. inco went lo United followed. Inco went to and offered immediate cash payment. United gave up. And so did ESB. Throughout the dizzying" race ESB management at their head- quarters in Philadelphia staunchly opposed the Inco offer, calling it "hostile" and "foreign." They went so far as to file an anti-trust suit against Inco. Inco countered with a suit to restrain ESB of- iicers from making false statements in opposing the Inco bid. The bid will mean a total price of about million for all the shares, compared to million originally offered by Inco. At the same time ESB dropped its suit in which it al- leged Inco had a "monopolis- tic" position in the U.S. nickel market and the proposed take- over would reduce competi- tion in the U.S. battery business. Inco dropped its lawsuit as well. ESB. of Philadelphia, em- ploys 17.000 and is the most di- versified and biggest company in the battery field. The firm has 100 plants in 19 countries, including eight in Canada. ESB achieved record ear- nings of million on record sales of million in the fiscal year ending March 31. Its total assets are more than million. CP Rail Appointment L. R. Smith The appointment of L. R. Smith as senior regional vice-president.
