UNCOOKED ALERT: Vodafone said to ... - Part 7

Thursday, 22 September 2022, 9:08 am

Ben Marlow of The Daily Telegraph, little old Betaville's former employer, has written a lengthy opinion piece on Vodafone.

The Bloomberg follow ups appear to be arriving on a daily, if not hourly, basis at the moment.

Now, Betaville's arch rivals have published a fresh follow up to little old Betaville's intelligence alert about Ontex (https://www.betaville.co.uk/betaville-intelligence/uncooked-alert-ontex-said-to-part-3/) earlier this year...

Below are the links to the Bloomie "scoop" in case you missed it and Betaville's UNCOOKED ALERT:..

EG Group, the owner of Asda supermarkets, and Alimentation Couche-Tard are reportedly in deal talks as part of a transaction that could value the former at $16 billion.

Tuesday, 22 June 2021, 12:58 pm

After this morning's UNCOOKED Alert a charming chap from Bloomberg got in touch to apologise for the mistake in aggregating Betaville content accurately.

And I understand Bloomberg has corrected its story from yesterday, which is very gracious of the global financial media outlet.

Now let's get back to competing for scoops and stories!..

Sanjeev Gupta's advisers at PricewaterhouseCoopers have got in touch with potential acquirers of Liberty Steel's engineering division to formally begin the sale process of the unit.

Betaville has been watching the goings on at BT Group with interest.
