The group of Alexandre Bompard would study the repurchase of its competitor, according to BFM Business.
A public exchange offer (exchange of shares) between 4 and 4.2 billion euros was mentioned, 25% more than its value at the end of June. An important premium to try to seduce the banks of Casino.
Note that in case of purchase of the entire Casino, the Competition Authority would probably require the sale of a portion of the stores, so the local retail brands are superimposed (Franprix, Carrefour Market, etc. .).
A year ago, Casino said it had been approached by Carrefour … what the latter had already denied.
