Boparan has until 21 January to make a firm bid for Northern, which is currently working with Irish convenience food maker Greencore on a merger that would create a company with turnover of £1.7bn. His firm Boparan Holdings, which owns Harry Ramsden’s fish shop chain, has been given access to Northern’s books to conduct due diligence but has not put a value on its potential offer. Northern welcomed the decision and said it would continue to recommend that shareholders approve the merger with Greencore at a vote on 31 January. whatsapp Share KCS-content Tuesday 4 January 2011 8:20 pmcenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definitionthedelite.comNetflix Cancellations And Renewals: The Full List For 2021thedelite.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Herald Tags: NULL Boparan told to put up or shut up over Northern takeover interest Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more
