A Gannett (NYSE: GCI) spokesperson said it had financing options regarding a potential takeover of tronc, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRNC) but terminated talks after considering accretion and whether a deal made sense.
Comments from Gannet followed an earlier statement from tronc that suggested that financing was the reason talks failed.
“Gannett had a number of financing options available and determined to terminate discussions with tronc after considering both accretion to shareholders and whether the terms make sense for the company,” said a Gannet spokesperson.
The parties agreed to a purchase price in mid-September and the two sides had been working to finalize the deal, according to an earlier press release from tronc.
