SNAKEBOARD International, where former tennis star David Lloyd is in command, is in talks to take over an unquoted leisure group. Mr Lloyd, who moved in nearly 18 months ago, made more than pounds 20m when he sold his fitness business to Whitbread. Snakeboard limps along at 0.75p.
BRITISH Thornton returned following the reverse pounds 12m take over of Planit, a point of sale software group. The shares closed at 30p against a 25.5p suspension price.
