LONDON Oct 23 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
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.
