Pirelli share price spikes, eases back on acquisition rumour

Friday 31st January 2014 | 0 Comments

The trading price of shares in Pirelli & C. SpA jumped to €12.96 late on 29 January after financial website FT Alphaville published information from “usually well-informed sources” about manoeuvres to change the company’s ownership structure. The release of a statement from Pirelli chairman and CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera denying any deal ensured the descent from this peak, however, and by 11:00am GMT today the share price had declined 7.3 per cent from this high to €12.01.
