And to whom. FT speculating it could go well above 300p - with the auction process tending to push these things higher than otherwise we would get to. Though both sides must be wary about overpaying for this kind of asset. I suspect both sides are prepared to go above the current 285p - but by how much is harder to say? We could certainly get to / around 300p - any more than that would be a bonus, and could leave the ultimate winner with some challenging sums to work out!

Right, we can now see if anyone wants my Sainsbury's shares... all reasonable offers considered? Bill

Morrisons confirms McColl's rescue deal Mon, 9th May 2022 17:19 (Sharecast News) - Morrisons confirmed on Monday that it has agreed to buy convenience store operator McColl's from the administrator, seeing off competition from the Issa brothers' EG Group. The supermarket retailer said the deal will be structured through a pre-pack administration. Morrisons will buy all of McColl's 1,160 stores, which include 270 Morrisons Daily format stores. All McColl's staff will be transferred with the McColl's business to Morrisons, and McColl's two pension schemes will be taken on by the chain. Morrisons - which was recently taken over by private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice - said its wholesale supply agreement to McColl's stores will continue without interruption and the convenience stores will continue to trade. Morrisons chief executive David Potts said: "Although we are disappointed that the business was put into administration, we believe this is a good outcome for McColl's and all its stakeholders. This transaction offers stability and continuity for the McColl's business and, in particular, a better outcome for its colleagues and pensioners. "We all look forward to welcoming many new colleagues into the Morrisons business and to building on the proven strength of the Morrisons Daily format." McColl's went into administration last Friday after talks with Morrisons fell through and creditors refused to extend a deadline for it to raise more cash.
