Takeover tomorrow?

Lots of takeover talk this week. I have been applying my enthusiasm to things closer to home and those I can control recently, but the Evening Standard printed an article today saying that co-founder of Rubicon Global (which sounds a lot more grand than it really is) Marc Spiegel expects to complete the takeover of Charlton from Thomas Sandgaard on Friday.
