Cogeco rejects sweetened takeover offer from Altice USA, Rogers

Monday 19 October 2020 | 08:58 CET | News
Altice USA and Rogers have increased their takeover bid for Cogeco, now valuing the company at CAD 11.1 billion, including shares owned by Rogers. The companies made a bid for the company in September that valued the company at CAD 10.3 billion. That offer was soundly rejected not one but twice, and this new one has been too. The Audet family, the controlling shareholders of Canadian operation Cogeco, said this was a "definitive refusal."
