TAG Oil tied up in tricky takeover talks

Garth Johnson, the chief executive officer of budding junior energy player TAG Oil Ltd., wants you to know that he absolutely, positively did not bid for New Zealand’s Greymouth Petroleum. He even put out a press release today to make that clear.

But he also wants you to know that he absolutely, positively wants to buy Greymouth, and said so to the Wall Street Journal in Australia.
