Liberty Global in takeover talks with Daisy Group - report

Friday 14 March 2014 | 12:07 CET | News
Liberty Global has held secret talks about a GBP 500 million-plus acquisition of UK IT supplier Daisy Group, Sky News has learned. However, an unnamed source said that the talks have ended in the last few days because of a gulf in their views over the potential price that Liberty would pay. It is not clear if the talks will be revived. Daisy has recently signed a 5-year contract with Liberty Global-owned Virgin Media to provide services and engineering support.
