Entain did not provide any information about the amount of a possible bid. It is also not certain whether there will be a formal command at all. According to information from “CNBC”, the volume of the bid should amount to around 20 billion US dollars (the equivalent of 17 billion euros). Entain shares soared 18 percent.
According to the Bloomberg news agency database, there are currently just under 587 million Entain shares.
