Cooper Tire selling to Indian company for $2.22B
Published: June 12,2013
Cooper chief executive Roy Armes says India’s Apollo Tyres Ltd. also plans to retain Cooper’s management operation in Ohio.
Apollo announced today that it’s buying Cooper, which operates a plant in Tupelo, and creating one of the world’s largest tire makers.
Armes says there is little overlap between the two companies and that will create more opportunities for growth in the U.S., China and Africa.
Apollo’s price of $35 per share represents a 43 percent premium over Cooper’s closing stock price yesterday.
Armes says the deal is good for shareholders and workers because of Apollo’s commitment to operations in Ohio, Mississippi and Arkansas.
