Next Fifteen Communications has ended bid discussions with Chime Communications and Huntsworth.

The shares dipped 8.5p to 46p each following the news, which values the technology PR firm at £24.88m.

Next Fifteen’s board believes that it is best to remain independent. Chairman Will Whitehorn has bought 34,000 shares at 46p each. This takes his stake to 1.85%.

Herald Investment Trust and Liontrust each acquired 250,000 shares at 55p each on 19 May. Herald owns 8.7% of Next Fifteen and Liontrust increased its stake to 13.2%.. These shares appear to have been acquired from Pensions Services Ltd.

PR company Chime has confirmed that it has no current intention of making a bid for Next Fifteen.

Marketing services provider Huntsworth has not made any announcement.
