The property services consultant confirms it is still in discussions with a mystery buyer

Property services consultant Erinaceous has confirmed that it is still in talks over a takeover deal with a private buyer.

Confirmation of the talks follows press speculation that HBOS interest in the company could be affected by the resignation of two key directors in Erinaceous’ insurance division.

Erinaceous said in its statement: “Shareholders should note that these discussions may or may not lead to an offer being made for the Group.”
