Turkey's Yildirim offers $1bn for energy, chrome, port assets
LONDON Oct 23 (Reuters) - Turkey's Yildirim Group, a privately-owned diverse industrial company, has made offers totalling $1 billion in the past two months to buy six companies involved in energy, chrome and ports, owner Robert Yildirim said on Tuesday.
The Turkish magnate told Reuters he could not name the companies involved for reasons of confidentiality.
The Yildirim Group has also offered to buy from European banks and amalgamate assets from the struggling shipping sector and it is looking to do so in early 2013. (Reporting by Jacqueline Cowhig; Editing by Anthony Barker)
