Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co (P&O) is close to recommending a more than $3B offer from Dubai Ports World
(DPW), according to press reports.
The Weekend Financial Times, which claimed DPW offered 430 pence for the British ports and ferries group, said the size of the liability in P&O's pension fund needs to be agreed before the board can recommend the offer.
The Business however said the recommendation could come as early as Tuesday.
Neither paper cited sources.
A spokesperson for the company declined to comment.
