Pearl Group is primed to make a cash offer for Resolution as early as next week, it has been reported.
The Hugh Osmond led company is believed to be preparing a 660p per share offer, below Resolution's 683.5p share price this morning.
The move is the latest in a string of efforts Pearl has taken to scupper Resolution’s proposed merger with Friends Provident.
