France's Air Liquide denies takeover talk

PARIS, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Rumours of a takeover offer for French gas group Air Liquide AIRP.PA have no foundation, its Chairman and Chief Executive Benoit Potier told reporters on Friday.

Benoit, speaking after the company reported 2007 results in line with analyst expectations, also said a slowdown in the U.S. economy would have not be at all significant for the group.
