Sky reports that City sources say, “an approach from either Amazon or Spotify was likely to be pitched at a significant premium to Friday’s closing share price of £17.60,” but it also says an insider has, “cautioned that a formal approach from the two digital giants could yet fail to materialise, and that it was unclear how public disclosure of their potential interest would affect their intentions.
