AMSTERDAM (Dow Jones)–Dutch dredging company Koninklijke Boskalis Westminster NV (BOKA.AE) has kept its offer for maritime services company Dockwise (DOCKW.AE) at EUR17.20 per share, or EUR682 million in total, a Boskalis spokesperson said Friday.

“We still see our offer as fair, given the premium of 61% compared to Dockwise’s closing price of 23 November”, the spokesperson said, reacting to Dockwise’s statement Thursday which said the offer is an undervaluation of the company.

Both parties will meet next week to discuss the offer.
