Talks For M&C Saatchi M&A Deal Continue

Last month M&C Saatchi received a buyout offer from AdvancedAdvT, led by one of the agency’s independent board directors Vin Murria.

The agency rejected the initial offer and a follow-up proposal that an evaluation committee concluded undervalued the firm.

But negotiations are continuing, an indication that both sides still see room to complete a deal.

At the request of both sides, the UK regulatory body that oversees M&A transactions has extended until March 3 a deadline by which Advanced has to make a firm offer commitment or declare its intention not to.

But talks could go on longer if both sides see progress and ask for another extension.
