Hedge fund Elliott wants McKesson to sweeten Celesio bid

FRANKFURT, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Hedge fund Elliott International is pushing U.S. drugs wholesale group McKesson to hike its $8.3 billion offer for German peer Celesio .

“We do not intend to tender unless McKesson offers fair compensation to all Celesio shareholders and bondholders”, Elliott said in a statement on Tuesday.

A source told Reuters earlier on Tuesday that Elliott planned to decline McKesson’s offer as it undervalued the target.
