Concerns about the affect of global trade concerns and Brexit upon Europe’s financial markets have led Titan International to postpone a potential listing of its Italtractor ITM S.p.A. (ITM) business. According to company chairman Maurice Taylor, these factors have impacted the company’s ability to suitably evaluate its strategic alternatives with respect to ITM.
In February, Titan International disclosed it was “evaluating its strategic alternatives” regarding its Italtractor ITM S.p.A. (ITM) steel track and undercarriage business. It engaged Shore Capital as its financial advisor in carrying out this evaluation. Paul Reitz, the company’s president and chief executive officer, reports that Titan is making “positive progress” with respect to one potential alternative, a public listing within Europe.
