The company said also interested in creating industrial synergies.
The confirmation came at the request of the Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (Consob) - the authority responsible for regulating the Italian securities market – following press reports. The company's share price has increased over 10% following the rumours.
The agreements with the new potential partners will be examined at a company board meeting which will take place in the next days. Astaldi will provide information to the market after the board meeting’s decisions.
