UPDATED: Stock in Oslo-based 挪威中超联赛官网 was taking off once again on Monday, after 汉莎中超联赛官网 said it was evaluating a possible takeover of 挪威中超联赛官网. 挪威中超联赛官网’的创始人兼老板BjørnKjos确认他’s had direct contact with his counterpart at 汉莎中超联赛官网 over “interest”这可能会使大型德国中超联赛官网公司与拥有英国中超联赛官网公司的西班牙和英国公司国际中超联赛官网公司(IAG)竞争。

“我知道他们(汉莎中超联赛官网公司)一直在与我们的顾问进行会谈,”周一下午,乔斯告诉挪威广播公司(NRK)。“我已经与Carsten Spohr(德国汉莎中超联赛官网’s CEO) myself, he’是一个非常好的人。我已经跟他发短信了,所以我知道他们’ve been 接触.”

挪威中超联赛官网 had stated last week that it was 接触 with others 利益ed in buying the airline that started out offering shuttle service on 挪威’西海岸。从那以后,它已经发展成为国内,欧洲和现在洲际的中超联赛官网公司,着重于低票价。

周一,它的股价上涨了10%以上,到午后接近274挪威克朗,显然是奥斯陆证券交易所上最活跃的股票。挪威’此后,库存一直在起作用 IAG于今年春季初确认已收购了该中超联赛官网公司约5%的股份’s shares and wanted to discuss a merger or acquisition. 挪威中超联赛官网’的创始人,首席执行官和主要股东比约恩·乔斯(BjørnKjos)不愿接受 股价后来回落 从最高的300挪威克朗到周末的最低250挪威克朗。

在德国报纸发表后,星期一早上又重新活跃起来 南德意志报 reported on 汉莎中超联赛官网’s 利益 in Norwegian. 汉莎中超联赛官网’该公司首席执行官Spohr告诉该报纸,一波整合浪潮席卷了中超联赛官网业的低价部分,“这意味着我们也与挪威人保持联系。”

乔斯,谁 自己仍然拥有控制权, claimed the takeover 利益 in 挪威中超联赛官网 is a good sign they’在中超联赛官网公司做正确的事。他打电话给IAG’s initial approach “完全出乎意料” since “we haven’t广告任何要出售的东西…但由于(IAG’s 利益) “many others”也来过现场。他不会’没说谁“汉莎中超联赛官网公司就是其中之一。”

奥斯陆报纸 达根斯·纳林斯利夫(DN) reported that 汉莎中超联赛官网’s 利益 brings 挪威中超联赛官网 closer to being the target of a bidding war. 挪威中超联赛官网 officials were otherwise staying mostly mum, refusing to comment on 汉莎中超联赛官网’s 利益. “我们只能确认我们之前所说的 several players have reported 利益 in the past few months,”挪威中超联赛官网发言人Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen告诉 DN .

汉莎中超联赛官网’的兴趣引起了疑问,因为它’是星空联盟内合作中超联赛官网公司的主要承运人,其中还包括大型中超联赛官网公司和洲际承运人,例如美国联合中超联赛官网。挪威’s arch-rival Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) is also a member of Star Alliance, with SAS and 汉莎中超联赛官网 cooperating on several routes and serving as feeders for one another. Bringing Norwegian into the fold could make for an unusual new alliance, not least since 汉莎中超联赛官网, SAS and United are among traditional long-haul carriers having to compete against the lower-cost, lower-fare 中超联赛官网公司 .

Danske Bank Markets的中超联赛官网公司分析师Martin Stenshall说,他认为Spohr’s remarks can “change the game” around Norwegian. He noted that 汉莎中超联赛官网 has, during the past few weeks, sent its own team of mergers and acquisitions experts to 挪威 to examine Norwegian.

“When 汉莎中超联赛官网 puts so many resources into the issue, it’s clear their 利益 is serious,” Stenshall told DN . “股市现在似乎也发挥了很多作用。”

乔斯告诉NRK,他认为’s “too early” to sell Norwegian. “挪威人有很多激动人心的地方,但是那’我个人的看法” Kjos said.

IAG’首席执行官威利·沃尔什(Willie Walsh)上周曾告诉自己的股东’在马德里的年度会议上,他和他的管理团队仍然 “open-minded” about Norwegian,但他否认自己的公司会卷入竞标战。
