ISA Hold­ings has re­ceived a non-bind­ing of­fer for the com­pany, which the board is con­sid­er­ing. ISA is a great IT busi­ness op­er­at­ing mostly in the fi­nan­cial ser­vices space, but the share price has never re­ally re­warded in­vestors de­spite great re­sults over the years. In a sense it’s a life­style busi­ness and gen­er­ally this type of listed busi­ness even­tu­ally gets delisted. Be­ing a listed com­pany means that a com­pany is both grow­ing and ac­quir­ing other com­pa­nies, or gets ac­quired in or­der to fuel an­other com­pany’s growth am­bi­tions. ISA seems to be fall­ing into the lat­ter camp.
