Agricore United is addressing the concerns of its customers over a hostile takeover bid by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool through a letter mailed out last week.

Spokesperson Radean Carter says the document explains how there are many steps which must be completed before a shareholder vote on the proposal would be held.

Meanwhile, the special committee which A.U. struck to look at S.W.P.'s proposal hasn't had the chance to do much work.

Carter notes the Winnipeg based company has yet to receive an official offer from Saskatchewan Wheat Pool.
