Audi received exclusive rights to negotiate for the acquisition of the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati. The German automaker has until the middle of April to finalize its offer for the buyout. According to sources within Audi, the price will be around 250-300 million euros. The initially announced price of 800 million was corrected and rightfully so. The debts of the Ducati Company amount to more than 200 million euro though, so Audi is not really buying a top-performing company.
