Commenting on the takeover news for RPC, Craig Yeaman, senior fund manager at Royal London Asset Management, said:

“We are very surprised and somewhat disappointed that the Board have recommended the offer at this price as we believe this materially underestimates the future prospects of the Group.

“While it is unlikely another bidder will emerge, it should not be discounted out of hand given the low valuation of the agreed bid.”
