Merger talks between 888 Holdings and William Hill have reportedly fallen through due to a difference in opinion between executives of both sides.
Last week Casino Listings reported that William Hill was willing to buy out 888 for a price of 200 pence per share with a 3 pence dividend share. That was in contrast to one of 888's key family owners, who wanted a price closer to 300p per share.
In light of the fall through, 888 CEO Brian Mattingley said, "The Company is in good health and continues to trade comfortably in line with expectations. The Company will announce its full year results on 24 March 2015 and the Board of the Company looks forward to the future with confidence."
