MILANO (Reuters) - Fincantieri agrees with France’s proposal to extend the deadline for a tie-up with Chantiers de l’Atlantique, a spokesman for the Italian shipbuilder said on Wednesday.
He added that Fincantieri has already sent all the clarifications requested by European antitrust authorities and now it was up to Brussels to respond to France and Italy.
Earlier on Wednesday France said it had offered Fincantieri a one-month extension to the planned acquisition of the French rival, which was due to expire on Thursday and is still awaiting European antitrust approval.
