Given that the original article is 11 days old, that doesn't surprise me Bingley. I'm going to guess that GWA picked them up, but we'll wait and see for public info.

The info I was told was that a deal had been agreed, but not signed. Source is reliable and reasonably close to the action.

Said it was with a hedge fund, which I might say I found a little odd - I don't think you're going to make millions on this deal.

May be the start of something much bigger. A launching pad for a new franchise or an extended franchise.

Purchase of other franchises into the mix.
