Suncor Energy (TSX, NYSE:SU), Canada’s largest oil and gas company, is once again urging shareholders of Canadian Oil Sands (TSX:COS) to tender their shares to its offer for the company.

The firm highlighted Tuesday the premium shareholders would receive to Canadian Oil Sands’ current price if they accept Suncor’s offer, and warned that shares are likely to drop if the offer is rejected.

COS adopted a poison pill two days after Suncor made its unsolicited all-stock offer in early October, which valued the company at $4.3 billion.

Calgary-based Suncor is seeking to take advantage of the almost 70% fall in U.S. and global oil prices since mid-2014 to tighten its grip on Syncrude, Canada’s largest synthetic oil project.
