Brady PLC (LON:BRY) shares rocketed on Monday as it received a potential counteroffer to a takeover bid by investment house Hanover.

In a separate announcement, Brady said the £8.3mln cash offer from Hanover, which was originally made in October, had fallen short of the 50% requirement for acceptances after it attracted approval from investors representing just 1.37% of its shares.

The timetable for acceptances has now been extended to 3pm on 29 November.

News of a possible rival bid sent Brady’s shares surging 37.6% to 16.5p in early deals, indicating that many are expecting a higher bid to emerge from discussions with the unnamed party.
