Beleaguered Pacific Dunlop has received a mystery bid of A$73.6m - worth about 10 per cent of its business.

Shamrock Holdings, PacDun's largest shareholder, has been ruled out as the bidder, leaving Futuris Corp, a diversified rural services company, in the frame as the most likely candidate.

The offer comes after BT Funds Management Ltd recently rejected an 80 cents per share offer for what was then a 14.2 per cent holding in PacDun.

JB Were the broker canvassing the offer, said it had received an order to purchase 92 million shares in PacDun in an overnight auction at a fixed price of 80 cents per share.
