ACS Continues to Consider Possible Counteroffer for Abertis

Spanish construction company ACS (ACS.MC) said on Friday that it was continuing to consider a potential counteroffer for Abertis Infraestructuras SA (ABE.MC), following a previous offer made by Italian company Atlantia SpA (ATL.MI) in June.

ACS said, among the various options it is considering, it may launch a competing bid with its German affiliate Hochtief AG (HOT.XE). However, a possible offer "has not been submitted for the deliberation and agreement" of the market regulator, ACS said.
