Asked whether PSzÁF is investigating fluctuations in Globus's share price preceding the bid, Binder said that the fact an investigation is underway does not automatically mean the authority has found something wrong. The investigation aims to find whether there have been any irregularities, he said. French agri-food group Centrale Cooperative Agricole Bretonne (CECAB) announced on February 24 a public purchase offer for all outstanding shares of Globus for a price of Ft 460 per share, a 31% premium over the minimum price required by the Budapest Stock Exchange (BÉT). CECAB must acquire 51% of the shares for the offer to be valid. At the same time, CECAB said it had signed an agreement with Globus's biggest owners to acquire all of the remaining shares after the buyout offer closes.
