Murdered by Melrose for GKN's " Building a Gear Giant "

Melrose's acquisition of GKN began in January this year. After a series of serious losses caused the stock price crash at GKN’s American Airlines plant, Melrose took the opportunity to issue a bid for £7 billion and described GKN as an “unregulated and poorly managed organization” with insufficient shareholder returns.

In the end, with the help of capital, many shareholders became tempted and decided to accept Melrose's acquisition of GKN. This three-month long tug of war started.

However, in view of GKN’s provision of military aircraft components including the Lockheed F-35B fighter aircraft for the United Kingdom, the reorganization of the acquisition may be subject to intervention at the national level, which means that the fate of GKN will ultimately be in his hands.
