Grindrod Not Up For Sale
Nov 12 14
Grindrod Bank Limited is satisfied with the performance of its banking unit and isn’t actively seeking a new buyer after The Bidvest Group Limited (JSE:BVT) abandoned plans to purchase the division of the South African shipping company. "The bank is not up for sale,” Alan Olivier, Chief Executive Officer of Grindrod, said by phone from Durban today. “We are very comfortable with Grindrod Bank. It’s doing very well.” “We had an unsolicited offer from Bidvest,” Olivier said. “They decided for their own reasons not to acquire” the bank, he said. Grindrod shares went up to 1.2% to ZAR 22.86 in Johannesburg.
Bidvest No Longer Mulling Food Service Listing
Nov 3 14
The Bidvest Group Limited (JSE:BVT) said it is no longer considering listing its food service business in London, potentially disappointing investors who had hoped to benefit from the spin-off. In September 2014, Bidvest said it had hired Barclays and Investec to evaluate a potential listing of the unit, adding it would be increasingly difficult to fund an overseas acquisition for the business with a South African balance sheet. However, Bidvest said on Monday it was no longer considering the move.
