Arconic says it’s no longer available for sale; stock nosedives

Arconic Inc (ARNC) announced that the Board has determined to no longer pursue a potential sale of the company as part of its strategy and portfolio review. However, the company said that it will continue with the previously announced sale process of its Building and Construction Systems unit. Shares of Arconic tanked more than 25% in the pre-market trading on Tuesday.

For the past few months, it was reported that the public equity firm Apollo Global Management (APO) is eyeing to buy Arconic. Last Thursday, New York Post reported that Apollo is close to taking over Arconic in a deal valued at $10.6 billion.

Arconic’s Chairman John Plant stated that the company has been conducting a strategic review over the past year and as part of that process considered a sale of the company. He added that the New York-based company has not received a proposal for a full-company transaction that it believes would be in the best interests of Arconic’s shareholders and other stakeholders.
