Thursday,  November 3, 2011 :  No offer forthcoming
 
Following an extension granted by the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers panel in October, UK bookmaker William Hill Plc today announced that it has withdrawn from preliminary acquisition talks with mobile tech firm Probability initiated in September .
 
No further information on the reasons for the withdrawal were provided, however, industry observers speculate that Will Hill's latest upheaval with its Playtech online partnership WHO has played a part in the decision.
