This week Andrew Shepherd-Barron, analyst at KBC Peel Hunt, said the results would not put off a buyer as they were in line with the profits warning the company issued in September. ‘Numerica’s acquisition-led growth model can work but it may need to be flexed,’ he said.
Robson Rhodes has declined to comment on the talks, but in a statement to the stock exchange, Numerica confirmed that discussions with a potential buyer were still on going.
Chief executive Tony Sarin said: ‘We are taking the necessary steps to ensure that the impact of the current challenging trading environment on the performance of the business is minimised, and I believe we are well positioned to take advantage of any upturn in the market for professional services.’
