Wednesday, August 31, 2016 :  888 DISMISSES POSSIBLE MERGE WITH RANK RUMOURS (Update)

After failed William Hill bid.

Speculation on a possible merger between The Rank Group and 888 Holdings following their partnership in the failed William Hill bid have been put to bed by 888 chief executive officer Itai Frieberger.

InfoPowa readers will recall the two companies recently considered a merger in order to buy William Hill in a three-way deal.

“We will continue to grow the business with or without M&A,” Freiberger said on the back of a successful H1/2016 report.
