The article reports on the extension of a deadline of sale of TDG PLC on June 27, 2008 given the fact that the company is still talking to Laxey Partners Ltd. about the possible sale. The initial deadline was extended to give Laxey time to finalise the financing for its offer to secure the support of the TDG pension trustees. But, TDG says there is no certainty that an offer will be forthcoming.
