'The Kuwait Investment Authority announced that recent news regarding talks with German auto parts supplier Continental AG was incorrect and baseless,' KIA said in a statement.
German business weekly WirtschaftsWoche said on Saturday that the auto parts supplier was in talks with KIA over possible investment.
The report had propelled Continental shares on Monday but the stock was lower on Tuesday, extending declines after KIA's statement.
