Two new offers for ITA Airways
In the next few hours the data room will open to evaluate the airline's performance
The national airline ITA Airways has received two new expressions of interest, in addition to the one already made official by the Italian shipping company Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) with the industrial partnership of the German airline Lufthansa. This latter offer of 1.2-1.4 billion Euros is still the favorite.
The names of the parties are not currently known. Meanwhile, one of the two expressions of interest has already been received by the Ministry of the Economy and has been described as "extremely serious and detailed". The other was initially rejected by the Executive. This is because the governmental decree of privatization sets precise stakes: to ensure the stability of ownership and employment, industrial integration, the network of national airports, development on strategic markets.
The indiscretion was published by the Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera", which cites ministerial sources close to the dossier. The news comes immediately after the publication in the Official Gazette of the government decree that formally starts the procedure for the privatization of the airline ITA Airways. In the coming hours, moreover, will open the data room that will allow interested parties to better assess the performance of the Italian airline.
