City Pub Group (CPC) is “pleased to announce” that it has agreed a recommended offer from Young & Co.'s Brewery (YNGA) with “a total implied value of 145 pence per City Pubs share… approximately £162 million”, including that it considers “the cash certainty and ongoing exposure to the combined group provided by the transaction… provide City Pubs shareholders with a significant acceleration to potential value creation”.
