Emap examines all options

Emap, the UK publisher which has been carrying out a group structure review, has announced that its review “remains on track and the Board continues to be encouraged by progress, with good interest in all parts of the Group from both trade and private equity.”

Emap adds: “As part of the review process, Emap is asking those parties interested in acquiring its B2B division to consider including the acquisition of Emap plc in their proposals, should an outcome of the review result in B2B being the only business remaining within Emap plc. This is being proposed purely as a possible way of enabling the return of the cash, including the proceeds of any potential disposals, to shareholders in an efficient manner.”

Emap’s board has confirmed that it has not received any approach to acquire Emap as currently constituted.
