Britain's decision to leave the European Union has not affected Liberty's interest in bidding for Tata Steel, ITV Wales understands.
It's believed the Newport based steel group have always been confident in their "robust model", regardless of whether the UK voted in or out.
They also say there is now a "stronger case" for a strong, independent, UK owned steel business, following Thursday's vote.
However, Labour MP for Aberavon, Stephen Kinnock, has said the result left "serious concerns" over the future of the steel industry and could affect potential bidders coming forward.
I'm deeply concerned about this result about the future of the steel industry. Uncertainty is the enemy of business and we're looking at an industry which is already battling for survival hanging by a thread in many ways. I'm terribly worried that this vote could be the one that cuts that thread we must now hear from the bidders whether they're staying in and there's rumours that they're not going to be.
Community union members from every Tata Steel UK site met in London today to consider issues relating to the ongoing sales process.
The union agreed there were serious concerns about the integrity of Tata Steel’s sales process.
Almost three months have passed since the announcement that Tata intended to sell their UK assets, yet if anything steelworkers and their families are now less certain of their future than ever.
Tata made it clear they no longer wanted to keep their UK businesses.
The UK Government stressed the need for Tata to act as a responsible seller; however it is now unclear whether Tata intend to sell the business at all.
If Tata do indeed intend to retain the business, then they need not only to make this clear to their loyal workforce, but also lay out their long term plan for investment in steelmaking.
Were Tata to remain, they would have a long way to go in regaining the confidence of steelworkers.
Amidst this uncertainly, there also remains the hugely important issue of the pension scheme to be resolved.
The statement has been sent to Tata Steel management.
Tata responded saying that negotiations continue with interested parties.
Tata Steel is committed to running a thorough and urgent sale process for its UK business.
That remains the case today.
Negotiations about various aspects of the sales process continue with interested parties.
Hundreds of steelworkers are marching today to highlight the crisis in their industry as a shortlist of bidders was being drawn up for the UK assets of Tata.
They are calling on the government to "ensure the responsible sale of Tata Steel's UK assets" and to deliver "a proper industrial strategy that supports the entire steel sector".

This represents another significant step forward for Excalibur. For both my colleagues to have committed themselves to our proposal is an endorsement of Excalibur's ability to design and execute plans to transform Tata's UK operations into a profitable business."
