It is with regret that I have to announce that it doesn’t look like there will be a share offer from Mr David Cunningham King.
Of course, there might some 11th-hour piece of glib and shameless brilliance.
The South African based entrepreneur is famed for such manoeuvres.
On the subject of 11th-hour moves, I understand that several members of the Sevco High Command had tried their own.
They attempted to bring in an independent party who would buy out Mr King.
Alas, they didn’t get any real interest.
Should Mr King fail to make an offer then it will be up to the Take Over Panel to decide their next move.
I had a cold shoulder once.
Bloody painful it was too!
