Market Report: Taking Stock
Thursday 29 January 1998
Since hitting a 126.5p low the shares have motored to reach a 187.5p peak, up 8.5p. BA and Avis already have links, including a five-year Heathrow deal.
Benson Crisps hardened 4p to 38.5p as it turned down a possible 40p a share offer, almost certainly from 17 per cent shareholder Knox D'Arcy.
The board, it would appear, wants at least 55p a share. Sudden departure of Malcolm Jones as chief executive increases speculation corporate action will engulf the crisp and snack group. Meantime profits jumped 26 per cent to pounds 2.6m.
