LONDON/MILAN/DUSSELDORF (Reuters) - Atlantia (ATL.MI) and Hochtief (HOTG.DE) are preparing to improve rival offers for Spain's toll-road operator Abertis in a nearly 20 billion euro takeover battle that is likely to be resolved by sealed bids early next year, sources close to the talks said. ACS, led by boss Florentino Perez, is currently in the lead having submitted a higher bid on Oct. 18 that values Abertis at 17.1 billion euros. Atlantia, controlled by the Benetton family, is expected to make a counter-bid early next year once Spanish regulators complete a review of Hochtief's bid approach.

MILAN/MADRID (Reuters) - Italy's Atlantia (ATL.MI) plans to improve its offer for Spain's Abertis (ABE.MC) to trump a 17.1 billion euros (£15.22 billion) rival bid from ACS' German subsidiary Hochtief (HOTG.DE), two sources close to the matter said on Thursday. Infrastructure group Atlantia is studying a rejigged cash-and-share bid but wants to wait for Spain's market watchdog to first approve Hochtief's offer before making a move, the sources said. ACS-Hochtief unveiled their proposal last week but they are still looking for investors who want to team up to acquire Abertis, one of the sources said.
DUESSELDORF/MILAN (Reuters) - German builder Hochtief (HOTG.DE), controlled by Spain's ACS (ACS.MC), made a 17.1 billion euro (15.28 billion pounds)bid for Spanish toll road operator Abertis (ABE.MC) on Wednesday, topping a rival offer from Italy's Atlantia (ATL.MI). Hochtief is offering 18.76 euros in cash, or 0.1281 Hochtief shares, for each Abertis share and has set a minimum acceptance threshold of 50 percent plus one share. Builder ACS is launching the bid via cash-positive Hochtief to protect its credit rating and avoid having to raise equity itself, though Hochtief's plan to issue up to 24.8 million shares could dilute ACS's 72 percent stake in the German firm to below 50 percent.

MILAN/DUESSELDORF (Reuters) - Italian toll-road operator Atlantia (ATL.MI) is prepared to raise its takeover bid for Spanish rival Abertis to up to about 17.8 billion euros ($21 billion) should a rival offer by builder ACS materialise, three sources close to the matter said. Atlantia this week formally launched a cash and share offer that values Abertis (ABE.MC) at around 17 billion euros - or about 17 euros per share - in a deal that would create the world's biggest toll-road operator.

MILAN/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Italian toll-road group Atlantia's 17 billion-euro (15.19 billion pounds) bid for Spain's Abertis (ABE.MC) is set to win EU approval, sources said on Tuesday, clearing another hurdle to getting the long-awaited deal done unless a counter-bid emerges. Three sources with knowledge of the matter said that EU antitrust regulators were set to give unconditional approval to the bid on Friday. Atlantia, which announced in May its proposal to acquire Abertis to create the world's largest toll-road operator, formally launched the cash-and-shares offer on Tuesday, a day after receiving the go-ahead from the Spanish market regulator.
MADRID/MILAN (Reuters) - Spain's market watchdog approved Italian infrastructure group Atlantia's (ATL.MI) proposed takeover of Spanish rival Abertis (ABE.MC) on Monday, clearing one of the hurdles to the creation of the world's biggest toll-roads operator. Approval comes nearly five months after Atlantia announced it was offering 16.3 billion euros (14.55 billion pounds) in cash and shares to buy Abertis. Spanish regulator CNMV said in a market filing the offer was conditional on shareholders representing at least 10.1 percent of Abertis share capital accepting payment in Atlantia shares.

German builder Hochtief is keen for more work in the United States, including any possible contract to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, Chief Executive Marcelino Fernandez Verdes said. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said last week it would accept proposals next month for the design of a wall to be built near the U.S.-Mexican frontier, a first step in picking vendors for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. Fernandez Verdes was speaking after Hochtief, which is majority-owned by Spanish construction group ACS, published 2016 financial results.
