GVC has seen their second bid rebuffed as they once again tried to gain control of Ladbrokes Coral. The gambling giant based on Isle of Man, had made an unsuccessful bids last year on the Ladbrokes Coral firm, as well as on British betting giants William Hill.
The first offer has been made by GVC, after Coral and Ladbrokes had announced their merge for £2.2bn.
GVC Holdings, already owns an extensive network of sports betting brands, like Bwin & Sportingbet and is trying to create the largest gambling company in the world. In light of that ambitious expectation they made a new bid up to £3.6bn to take over Ladbrokes Coral that currently hold over 3,500 betting shops.
According to sources from within the company, discussions about the deal have been terminated, due to issues over the value of both companies. What remains to be seen, is whether GVC will come back with a renewed offer, or if they will shift their interest elsewhere.
