Prime Opportunities, one of the parties looking to snap up IWG PLC (LON:IWG), has decided not to make an office for the serviced office provider.

It has decided not to return with an improved bid though and gave no explanation why.

FTSE-250 IWG issued a profit warning at the end of June, claiming its UK business is “not performing to management expectations”.

Despite Prime Opportunities pulling out of the race, private equity firms TDR Capital and Terra Firma, along with real estate investor Starwood Capital are all reportedly interested in buying the Regus owner.

IWG, which has offices in about 3,125 locations worldwide, has been fielding a number of suitors after a takeover attempt from Onex and Brookfield Asset Management collapsed in February.

Shares were broadly flat at 302.6p in early deals on Monday.
