Zurich smoked out

Great to see old school stock market reporting (with a new school digital twist) from Bryce Elder at the Financial Times smoke out a FTSE 100 takeover bid. Surely it's time for a pay rise, Ed.

In case you weren't aware how this played out, here is a link to Bryce's market report:


And here is this morning's confirmation to Bryce's story:

For immediate release

Statement Regarding RSA Insurance Group plc

Zurich Insurance Group Ltd ("Zurich") notes the recent market speculation in relation to RSA Insurance Group plc ("RSA") and confirms that it is evaluating a possible offer for RSA.  This announcement does not amount to a firm intention to make an offer under Rule 2.7 of the Code and there can be no assurance that any offer will be made.

In accordance with Rule 2.6(a) of the Code, Zurich is required, by not later than 5.00 p.m. on 25th August 2015 to either announce a firm intention to make an offer for RSA in accordance with Rule 2.7 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code") or announce that it does not intend to make an offer, in which case the announcement will be treated as a statement to which Rule 2.8 of the Code applies. This deadline can be extended with the consent of the Panel in accordance with Rule 2.6(c) of the Code.

A further announcement will be made in due course.

    Hello everyone, am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what Mason Diego did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%. Well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts for the past three months all I met scammed and took my money until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would advise you to email Mr Diego via: { diegoloancompany@yahoo.com } and be free of internet scams. thanks...
