The Sunday Times: Severn Trent suitors may walk away
A consortium of foreign bidders is weighing up a fourth attempt to buy Severn Trent, the British water company, after three rejections. Another offer could come today, but sources close to the consortium, led by Borealis, the infrastructure arm of
the £35bn Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System, said it could walk away. A Takeover Panel deadline for offers for the FTSE 100 water and sewerage services company expires tomorrow.
The Mail on Sunday: Payday lenders face competition probe
The controversial payday loans industry is set to face a full investigation from the Competition Commission over concerns that it makes huge profits from consumers who cannot afford the loans in the first place.
