Lactalis extends offer on Parmalat shares for five more days
Lactalis, the world's largest dairy firm, said in a statement it would reopen the offer on Parmalat shares from March 29 to April 4.
"The group, as majority shareholder in Parmalat, will continue to invest to add value to the company with a long-term industrial approach," Lactalis said.
The French group bought 15.11 percent of Parmalat shares on offer, or 1.85 of the group, giving it a total of 89.6 percent in the company. But it did not reach the 90 percent threshold required to proceed, as intended, to delist the company. ■
