Talks Reportedly Continuing
TNT Express rejected an approximately $6.4 billion takeover bid from UPS Inc., news services reported late Friday.
The Netherlands-based shipping and logistics company said talks were continuing, the New York Times reported.
TNT said the offer was worth 9 euros a share, about a 46% premium to Thursdayâ€™s closing share price, the Times reported on its website.
UPS confirmed the talks in a statement on its website, but cautioned there was â€œno certainty that any agreement will be reached.â€�
UPS Inc. is ranked No. 1 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
