Melrose Industries has narrowly clinched an 8 billion-pound takeover of British engineer GKN, winning an acrimonious three-month battle for control of the FTSE 100 company.
The opening salvo in what would become a three-month battle for British engineer GKN <GKN.L> was fired by Melrose's <MRON.L> chief executive over the telephone.
Merger and acquisition activity gave European shares some relief on Thursday after a tech-led sell-off across global markets earlier in the week, but the STOXX 600 still posted its worst quarter in the last two years.
Melrose's successful bid for GKN helped the UK's top share index finish the month on a positive note on Thursday and gave a mildly upbeat end to the FTSE 100's worst quarter since 2011.
Melrose Industries has succeeded in its 8 billion pound ($11.22 billion) hostile bid for British engineer GKN after investors holding 52.4 percent of the FTSE 100 company accepted its cash and shares offer.
The three-month battle for GKN will be decided on Thursday when the deadline for shareholders to accept Melrose Industries' 8 billion pound hostile bid expires, ending one of the most closely-contested takeover fights in Britain for years.
