FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Thyssenkrupp has not been contacted by activist fund and shareholder Elliott since July, Chief Executive Guido Kerkhoff told the group’s annual press conference on Wednesday.
“We have heard nothing from Elliott since July,” Kerkhoff said.
Elliott in May said it had taken a stake in the conglomerate of less than 3 percent, saying there was significant room for improvement at the group.
It has never quantified the stake.
