Rhoen says renewed takeover attempt not a given
FRANKFURT, June 13
FRANKFURT, June 13 (Reuters) - Rhoen-Klinikum cautioned that a shareholder vote that removed a major barrier against a takeover of the German hospital operator would not necessarily lead to a new bid from one-time suitor Fresenius .
"One should not conclude from the change to the bylaws that there will automatically be a new takeover attempt, in particular from Fresenius, or renewed momentum," the company said in a statement on Thursday.
Rhoen owners late on Wednesday unexpectedly voted to scrap a requirement for shareholders holding 90 percent of its capital to approve major strategic decisions, which could put the German hospital operator back onto Fresenius's shopping list. (Reporting by Ludwig Burger; Editing by Maria Sheahan)
