(Reuters) – Japan’s Nippon Paint Holdings Co Ltd <4612.T> made an all-cash offer on Tuesday to acquire Axalta Coating Systems Ltd <AXTA.N>, a source familiar with the matter said, prompting Axalta to end merger talks with Akzo Nobel NV <AKZO.AS>. Nippon’s offer came at a premium to where Axalta shares ended trading on Monday, the source said, asking not to be identified because the matter is confidential. Nippon did not immediately respond to a request for comment, while Akzo Nobel and Axalta declined to comment.
