Dods pulls plug on DeHavilland Political Intelligence bid
Dods, the parliamentary publisher and data platform, yesterday pulled the plug on its planned £12.8m purchase of DeHavilland Political Intelligence from the private equity-owned publisher Emap.
Dods, which is 17 per cent owned by the Tory grandee Lord Ashcroft, originally agreed to buy DeHavilland in January. The deal was referred to the Competition Commission by the Office of Fair Trading last week. Dods said that it was disappointed by the referral.
