Fincantieri Rumored to Be Interested in STX France

STX Offshore & Shipbuilding, the parent company of STX Europe which was recently broken up as part of the failing company’s restructuring plan, has been talking to Fincantieri about selling STX France to the Italian firm.

Fincantieri purchased STX’s offshore support vessel yard¬†a short time ago. Are they are poised to make another purchase of STX’s companies?

In August of 2014 STX was able to sell 70% of STX Finland to Germany’s Meyer Werft.
