Last week, Rank (RNK) and 888 (888) abandoned their pursuit of William Hill (WMH), acknowledging that it had been impossible to “meaningfully engage” with William Hill’s board. With a deal off the cards for now, we can get back to thinking about these companies on a standalone basis. And news is imminent: Rank is set to announce its preliminary results on Tuesday.
