SEOUL (Reuters) - U.S. activist hedge fund Elliott said on Thursday South Korea's Samsung Group [SAGR.UL] should make a fair offer to Samsung C&T Corp 000830.KS shareholders in seeking to combine the firm with Cheil Industries Inc (028260.KS: Quote).

Elliott, a Samsung C&T shareholder, said that while it "understands and is supportive" of the need for South Korea's largest conglomerate to restructure in relation to its ongoing succession process, Samsung Group should properly recognize Samsung C&T's value.
