“Mowi’s announced intention to launch a voluntary offer for NTS ASA will not be implemented,” reads a brief stock exchange announcement from the aquaculture giant.
The reason for the bid being withdrawn is that “the conditions are no longer present”, wrote Mowi.
The announcement comes just 28 minutes after SalMar offered NOK 120 per NTS share, in a combined cash and share package solution.
