Atlantia’s CEO Says Abertis Takeover Must Be Friendly and with Assets Intact

Reuters reports that Atlantia’s CEO announced on April 21 that his company is only interested in acquiring Abertis if the takeover is friendly and does not require a sale of Abertis assets to provide funding. “A tie-up between Abertis and Atlantia . . . would create one of the biggest infrastructure groups in Europe with a total market value of around 36 billion euros ($38.5 billion),” Reuters notes.
