Seconds (and bidders) out; round three

This from Emphasis added along with a large amount of sniggering.

The [RBI] auction … moved into its third round yesterday as several bidders were knocked out of the running.

The business was valued at between £1bn and £1.25bn. Bids are understood to be nearer the lower end of this estimate.

The timetable for the third-round deadline will depend entirely on whether financing can be raised amid the turmoil in the markets.

Observers say any deal remains uncertain.
