Limeade (ASX:LME) surged more than 300% on nit will be acquired by US-based WebMD Health Services, part of WebMD Health Corp for an all cash deal valuing the employee wellbeing company at ~$112 million.

WebMD will acquire 100% of the shares/CDIs for cash of $0.425 per share/CDI. The offer price represents a 325% premium to the last traded price of Limeade and a 217% premium to the 30-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) to June 7, 2023.

The offer price implies a fully diluted market capitalisation for Limeade of ~$111.5 million and an enterprise value of ~$112 million.

Marquee Resources (ASX:MQR) up strongly, after announcing it will accelerate the farm-in agreement over the lithium-only rights at MQR’s West Spargoville Project (WSP) with the $13.5 bn capped miner MinRes (ASX:MIN).

WSP is in the Southern Yilgarn of WA, which also hosts the 26Mt Bald Hill mine, MIN’s own 71Mt Mt Marion mine, Liontown Resources’ (ASX:LTR) 15Mt Buldania project and Essential Metals’ (ASX:ESS) 11.2Mt Pioneer Dome project.

As Stockhead’s Reuben Blocker Adams’ reported MIN recently built a blocking stake in ESS to prevent the tiddler from being acquired by IGO (ASX:IGO) and its partner in arms, China’s Tianqi.

Chris Ellison’s firm has now acquired an initial 25% interest in the lithium rights at WSP by funding ~$4.8m on exploration in less than 12 months.
