Arconic shares jump after report of buyout by Apollo Global


Jan 2 - Shares of Arconic Inc closed up 9.7 percent after Bloomberg that Apollo Global Management LLC is in talks to buy the U.S. aluminum products maker for about $22 a share, citing people familiar with the matter (graphic).

The deal could be reached by mid-January, and the two companies are negotiating one that would protect Apollo from Arconic's possible liability tied to a deadly apartment fire in London in 2017, according to the report.

Elliott Management Corp, the activist hedge fund that sits on Arconic board, is working to address potential liabilities weighing on the sale process for the U.S. aluminum products maker, had reported in November.

Apollo and Arconic did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
