BOC Mulls Takeover

LONDON -- British industrial gases firm BOC Group PLC said Tuesday it had received another joint takeover approach from France's Air Liquide and U.S.-based Air Products, two of its three main rivals.

The company said the proposal was unsatisfactory in a number of important ways but instead of breaking off talks, as it did last month, BOC said it will look at the issues to see if they can be addressed.
