Posco Seeks Partner for Bid

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Doosan Group pulled out of the bidding for Daewoo Shipbuilding, driving down shares of one of the world's biggest shipyards.  South Korean steel maker Posco was reportedly seeking partners to bid for Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in a deal that would value the shipbuilder at as much as $9.6b.  Shares in Doosan Group companies rose after it said it would not bid for Daewoo, easing concerns over the financial health of the conglomerate, which has made a series of acquisitions including last year's $4.9 billion cash deal for the U.S.-based Bobcat machinery business.

Posco, a steel giant and a strong candidate for the Daewoo deal, wants to join with a financial firm and 's National Pension Service to bid for Daewoo Shipbuilding, said a person with direct knowledge of the  situation.
