GKN calls Melrose's hostile offer statement "misleading"

Jan 18 GKN called Melrose's unsolicited offer statement "misleading", a day after it swiftly rejected the turnaround specialist's 7.4 billion pound ($10.2 billion) hostile offer for the British engineering company.

Melrose's market capitalisation on 5 January was significantly smaller than GKN's on the same day ... and Melrose brings no industrial synergies," it said on Thursday.
