Rome backs France's proposal to postpone deadline for Fincantieri-Chantiers deal-source

ROME (Reuters) - Rome backs France’s proposal to grant shipbuilder Fincantieri another month for its planned acquisition of Chantiers de l’Atlantique, an Italian government source said on Wednesday.

The two countries have been in talks over a possible extension and earlier on Wednesday the French government said it would offer an extra month to the Italian shipbuilder, a day before the offer was due to expire.
