    Activist investors scupper $20 bln Clariant-Huntsman merger

    ZURICH, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 27 (Reuters) - Swiss speciality chemicals maker Clariant and U.S. group Huntsman abandoned their $20 billion merger on Friday, notching a win for activist investors who fought the deal for months on the grounds it would destroy shareholder value. White Tale, the investment vehicle of hedge fund manager Keith Meister and New York-based fund 40 North, had raised its Clariant stake to above 20 percent, Reuters reported on Thursday ahead of the announcement the tie-up was dead. White Tale's rising stake, coupled with other Clariant shareholders who came out against the deal, left the Swiss company doubtful of mustering the two-thirds support necessary for the merger to go through.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Stocks waffle amid North Korea jitters, dollar gains

    A gauge of world stocks fell on Tuesday and the euro dropped to its lowest level in about a month as investors pulled back from trades that have worked for most of 2017 in the face of continued political uncertainty around the globe. North Korea has boosted defenses on its east coast, a South Korean lawmaker said, after the North said U.S. President Donald Trump had declared war. The latest U.S.-North Korea development came as market participants were still reckoning with the German election, in which Chancellor Angela Merkel won a fourth term but her party was weakened by a surge in far-right support.

    Pladis passes on Nestle's candy in favour of upmarket push

    Pladis, the owner of Godiva chocolate and McVitie's biscuits, has decided not to bid for Nestle's U.S. confectionery assets, preferring to pursue a more upmarket strategy. Chief Executive Cem Karakas had earlier told Reuters the Turkish-owned company was looking at the U.S. portfolio Nestle put on the block in June, which includes regional mass-market brands such as Butterfinger, Crunch and 100 Grand and could be valued at around $2 billion. Late on Friday, Karakas said Pladis, which is owned by Turkey's Yildiz Holding, had decided to pass.

    Korea tensions keep European shares in check before Germany vote

    Turkey's Pladis eyeing Nestle's US candy amid expansion plan

    Pladis, the Turkish company that owns Godiva chocolate and McVitie's biscuits, is considering making an offer for Nestle (Swiss: NESN.VX - news) 's U.S. confectionery assets, which could be valued at around $2 billion, as part of its international expansion plans. "We are looking at Nestle's confectionery assets in the U.S.," Chief Executive Cem Karakas told Reuters. A bid for Nestle's U.S. portfolio -- which includes regional mass-market brands such as Butterfinger, Crunch and 100 Grand -- would appear to be a shift from Pladis's stated strategy of focusing on the high end of the market, which is performing better than mid-tier brands.
