MILAN, Feb 14 (Reuters) – Italy’s Salini Impregilo has offered to invest 225 million euros ($254 million) to rescue troubled rival construction group Astaldi, the company said on Thursday.

Subscribing to a reserved capital increase, the proceeds of which will help Astaldi repay debt, Salini is set to gain a controlling stake, it said in a statement.

Salini said the offer was conditional on Astaldi reaching an accord with its creditors as well as other long-term investors contributing to the cash call and banks agreeing to grant Astaldi credit to stabilise the group’s finances and operations.
