10 OFFERS FOR ALITALIA
The crashing Italian airline Alitalia has received ten non-binding offers for takeover. An informed source reported it to Reuters.
Offers could be submitted by individual businesses and groups of companies. The Italian government does not want Alitalia to be divided, and demands that the buyer be able to secure new prospects for the future. Binding offers will have to be submitted by October.
