NBG and H&B merger talks end

The following is a statement from NBG:
Whilst we believed that there were some clear benefits to proceeding with a merger, we decided that on balance those benefits were outweighed by other considerations. These factors were both operational and cultural, with us recognising that there were significant differences between NBG and H&B.

Discussions between the two groups have been warm and constructive throughout – and we see every reason why this cordial relationship should continue, albeit not in a newly merged organisation.

At NBG, we are confident that the organisation remains a strong, well organised and highly successful buying group.
We will continue to explore fresh opportunities and remain open-minded about potential future partnerships.
