    Melrose says rising shares show the value of its GKN bid

    Melrose was responding on Thursday to earlier criticism of its cash-and-shares offer from the much larger GKN, a British firm that makes parts for the Boeing 737 jet, Black Hawk helicopter and components for Volkswagen and Ford cars. GKN, which traces its roots back to the 18th century, said Melrose's claim to be offering its shareholders a 32 percent premium was "fake", not least because most of the cash for the proposed deal would effectively be funded by GKN investors. With a much higher debt-to-core earnings ratio, Melrose would be using GKN to leverage up the combined business to fund the cash part of its offer, GKN said.

    GKN PLC - Statement re rejection of unsolicited offer

    Further to its rejection of the offer announced on 17 January 2018 by Melrose Industries PLC ("Melrose"), GKN wishes to correct some of the misleading statements made by Melrose in its announcement and investor presentation released on 15 January 2018.

    Melrose makes hostile offer to buy Britain's GKN for $10.2 billion

    Turnaround specialist Melrose (MRON.L) raised the pressure on GKN (GKN.L) by turning hostile in its pursuit of the British engineering company, making a firm 7.4 billion pound offer for the business after meeting its shareholders. The 430.1 pence-per-share bid was swiftly rejected by GKN on Wednesday on the grounds that the terms of the paper-and-cash offer are "effectively unchanged" from a first, unsolicited approach made by Melrose in private on Jan. 8, which GKN also spurned. "We believe GKN's current owners should retain all the benefits of the clear upside potential in GKN, rather than handing almost half of this upside to Melrose and its shareholders," newly appointed GKN Chief Executive Anne Stevens said on Wednesday.
