FIRM POOL­ING ITS IN­TER­ESTS

Daily Mirror - - CITYDESK -

The owner of the Football Pools was stay­ing tight-lipped yes­ter­day over a pos­si­ble sale of the 93-year-old busi­ness.

Sportech is ru­moured to want to flog the Spot the Ball firm for up to £100mil­lion.

It came as the off­shoot’s prof­its dipped only slightly to £7m in the first six months of the year, de­spite an 18% drop in sales.
