    Buffett-backed USG rejects buyout offer from Germany's Knauf

    Gebr Knauf disclosed on Monday it had offered to buy the maker of gypsum wallboards earlier this month for $42 per share, a premium of 25 percent to the stock's Friday closing, valuing the company at about $6 billion (£4.2 billion). In response to the offer, Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc (BRKa.N), had offered an option to sell its 31 percent stake in the company as long as Knauf's offered at least $42 a share for USG. The option provides a sweetener for Buffett to shed a profitable investment that originated at the height of the housing crisis in late 2008, when Berkshire and Canada's Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd (FFH.TO) bought $400 million of USG's debt.
