OpCapita LLP Key Developments

Henry Jackson Reportedly Eyes Gala

Henry Jackson, the former owner of Comet and founder of OpCapita LLP has reportedly told Gala Coral Group Limited that he is interested in buying the company, which is expected to be put up for sale later this year. Investment bank Lazard has been appointed to oversee an auction of Gala, which runs 140 bingo halls across the UK. Analysts believe it could be sold for £250 million. Jackson's involvement in the auction will pit him against private equity groups and individuals including Luke Johnson, the former Channel 4 chairman, whose firm Risk Capital Partners Limited; is among the other likely bidders. According to Sky News, a spokeswoman for Opcapita declined to comment.
