Apollo Tyres surged as much as eight per cent in trade today after Cooper Tire & Rubber Co lost a U.S. court battle, which would have compelled Apollo Tyres to buyout the company.

The Apollo Tyres stock was last quoting at Rs 90 on the Bombay Stock Exchange. The court decision now leaves Apollo Tyres with the option of exiting the acquisition deal until Dec 31.
