Just Eat Takeaway.com (NASDAQ:GRUB) advanced 11% on a report that the food delivery company is the subject of takeover speculation.
There is speculation that the GRUB may be looking at its strategic options with an investment banker, according to a Betaville "uncooked" alert. The food delivery firm may have attracted interest from private equity. Some people following the matter suggested Uber (NYSE:UBER) may be around the situation.
The takeover speculation comes after a Bloomberg report in January that the company's management may be open to a sale of Grubhub, the U.S. segment of the company.
Just Eat (GRUB) management had indicated to some investors the company may be open to selling Grubhub, according to the Bloomberg report. Advisers were said to be pitching a take-private deal or breakup.
The speculation also comes after the Just Eat Takeaway CEO reportedly said in November that he had no plans to sell Grubhub.
Also see last week, DoorDash (NYSE:DASH) is said to have held takeover talks with Deliveroo last year.
