Liberty Steel Group announced on Friday that it made a non-binding indicative offer to acquire ThyssenKrupp's steel business.

The company pointed out it has held talks with ThyssenKrupp on "a non-exclusive basis" and there is still no guarantee an acquisition agreement will be reached. Meanwhile, ThyssenKrupp confirmed it is considering the offer but noted it will also look at other potential buyers.
