Apollo Tyres has stated that it’s disappointed and will also sue. Apollo Tyres planned to buy the U.S. tiremaker for $35 a share in a $2.5 billion deal.

The Chief Financial Officer at Ohio based Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., Brad Hughes said in a conference call that the company is seeking a $112.5 million in a “reverse termination fee.” According to Cooper Tires executives at the Indian tire producer had “buyer’s remorse” and then sought a price cut.
