Sept. 28 (Bloomberg) -- TMX Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Thomas Kloet said a takeover offer from Maple Group Acquisition Corp. is a legitimate bid.
“I do not view it as a bluff, frankly,” Kloet said today in an interview with Bloomberg Television in New York.
Maple, a group of 13 Canadian financial-services companies including Toronto-Dominion Bank and Manulife Financial Corp., has offered to buy TMX for C$3.73 billion ($3.65 billion).
