Akzo Nobel declines third takeover proposal from PPG | Reuters


AMSTERDAM Dutch paint maker Akzo Nobel (AKZO.AS) on Monday rejected a third takeover proposal from larger U.S. rival PPG valued at 26.9 billion euros ($29.51 billion)saying it undervalues the company, faces antitrust risks, and does not address other stakeholder concerns such as “cultural differences.”

A group of the company’s shareholders who support a merger of the two companies have been pushing for talks, but Akzo said in a statement it would not engage in discussions with the U.S. company. [nA5N1F901R][nL8N1HW2QJ]


PPG must now decide whether it will move to a formal bid ahead of a June 1 deadline under Dutch securities laws without support of Akzo’s boards.
