Eurasia also reiterated its announcement from July 1 that it has appointed UBS as its leading adviser to assist in a review of its strategic options including asset sales or a sale of the company.

"The board remains focused on maximising shareholder value, and, after receiving approaches from multiple parties interested in acquiring the company's assets, has decided that launching a formal sale process under the Takeover Code is in the best interests of shareholders, which could result in a sale of assets or the company. The company will work with UBS and its other advisers to execute the process", Eurasia executive chairman Christian Schaffalitzky said in a statement.

The group’s shares surged 78.1% higher to 12.8p in early trading.
