Text size Aa Aa

MADRID (Reuters) – SIX Group’s 2.84 billion euro ($3.13 billion) offer for Spanish bourse operator BME <BME.MC> is “financially attractive” for BME shareholders, SIX´s CEO said on Tuesday, adding they would watch what happens in the future given potential interest from other bidders.

“We will see what happens in the future,” SIXCEO Jos Dijsselhof said in a press conference when asked whether his company would raise its BME acquisition offer.

On Monday, the Swiss exchange operator had offered BME 34 euros per share in cash, implying a total equity value of 2.843 billion euros (£2.4 billion).
