It’s now official. Atlantia has launched a full takeover bid for Abertis worth 16.341 billion euros, implying a price per share of 16,50 euros. Payment will be made either in cash or via a share exchange.
Italian motorway and airports operator Atlantia is considering a tie-up with Spain’s Abertis by launching a tender offer. The transaction is valued at some 15-16 billion euros, taking into account the current market value of Abertis. The offer will be made partly in cash and partly in Atlantia shares, with the end result a merger between the two companies.
