Eutelsat Communications (ETL.FR) said Tuesday that it doesn’t plan to make an offer for Inmarsat PLC (ISAT.LN), less than one day after the company said it was evaluating a possible bid.
The French satellite company said it reserves the right to announce a firm or possible offer for its U.K. rival, as well as to participate in an offer for Inmarsat within six months.
Eutelsat said it would do so with the consent of the Inmarsat board, if a third party discloses a firm intention to make an offer for the British company, if Inmarsat announces a reverse takeover, or if the U.K. Takeover Panel determines that there has been a material change of circumstances, the company said.
Inmarsat said on June 8 that it had rejected a preliminary takeover proposal from EchoStar Corp.
on the basis that it undervalued the company. Under U.K. rules, EchoStar must make a decision on whether to make a firm offer by July 6. Last week, a regulatory filing showed that EchoStar has a 3% stake in Inmarsat.

Tuesday saw an up-and-down session on Wall Street, with major benchmarks trading on either side of the unchanged mark before finishing the day flat. Many investors kept most of their attention on Washington, where the White House announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the deal that the previous administration made with Iran concerning nuclear development. The withdrawal was largely expected, and although crude oil and other commodities were volatile leading up to the final decision, most other financial markets seemed prepared for the announcement. Even on a lackluster day, some companies had good news that lifted their shares substantially. Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), Valeant Pharmaceuticals International (NYSE:VRX), and SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.
