Bank Restaurant Group poised to sell to Piccolino owner

Bank Restaurant Group has confirmed it is in the final stages of a reverse takeover deal with the Individual Restaurant Company (IRC), owner of the Piccolino Italian eateries.

IRC, founded in 1999, has 11 Piccolino restaurants and three The Restaurant Bar + Grills, along with three individually branded sites.

Altium have been appointed as financial advisors and brokers for the deal and are conducting a fundraising at 3p per share before an intended share consolidation.

Bank's management said in a statement: "Discussions are ongoing and there is no certainty that they will lead to a transaction."

In November last year Bank paid £4m for Conran's Zinc Bar & Grill restaurant chain and has been looking to add to its portfolio since.
