Germany is open to Spain seeking a precautionary credit line from Europe’s rescue fund, two senior coalition lawmakers said. The comments by Michael Meister, a deputy caucus leader of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc, and Norbert Barthle, her party’s budget spokesman, signal a reversal of Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble’s position that Germany is opposed to a full sovereign bailout for Spain.

GKN Plc fell 3.3 percent to 205 pence after the maker of car drive shafts warned that weakening demand in some European automotive and industrial markets will affect fourth- quarter profit.

Third-quarter earnings beat analyst estimates on rising demand for medical tools acquired with the Synthes purchase and new prescription medicines.
