Alimentation Couche-Tard extends offer to acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Statoil Fuel & Retail

CSP Daily News reports that Alimentation Couche-Tard has extended –for the second time– its voluntary offer to June 8, 2012, to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Statoil Fuel & Retail. Last week, Couche-Tard extended the original deadline from May 21 until May 29, and said that it was "disappointed" by shareholder response to the $2.68 billion bid, announced on April 18. Alimentation Couche-Tard operates the Circle K brand convenience stores in the U.S.
