This pending take-over has a certain mordant symmetry. A giant German construction company taken over by a Spanish construction company. Spain had the biggest construction bust and Germany financed the largest part of that bust, IIRCC. But how did ACS manage to get into position to even threaten such a feat?

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
