NEW YORK — Two weeks after Avon rejected Coty’s bid to snap up the company in a deal valued at $10 billion, Coty is reaffirming its interest in Avon and is urging Avon shareholders to push for the offer.

As previously reported, Coty submitted a nonbinding proposal to acquire Avon for $23.25 per share in cash. The proposal, valued at approximately $10 billion, represents a substantial premium of 27% over the three-month, volume-weighted average price for Avon shares, Coty stated.
