BIDDING FOR SELFRIDGES: Selfridges, the London-based department store, has given potential bidders 10 days, or until May 6, to submit takeover offers for the company, according to a report in The London Sunday Times.
The newspaper reported that the store had received a bid last week from Tom Hunter, the Scottish retail entrepreneur, valuing the company at approximately $793 million based on current exchange rates.
Earlier this month, Selfridges confirmed in a statement that it had been approached by an unnamed party, believed to be Hunter, about a takeover, while other potential bidders have been identified as Goldman Sachs and Galen Weston, the Canadian billionaire.
Selfridges executives declined to comment on the report.
