Issa Brothers Mulling Merger Of Asda And EG Group

However, Bloomberg News reported on Friday that a merger of their two businesses is being discussed to create a combined entity valued at around £26bn, including debt.

  • Australian petrol sites sale a probability to simplify holdings (and raise some cash)
  • Suppliers should anticipate amalgamation, if only to optimise buying power…
