Barracuda denies plans for float

From The Publican


Managed pub group Barracuda says it has 'no firm plans' to float the business on the stock market this year.

A national newspaper report said Barracuda was considering a float in the autumn. Chief executive Mark McQuater (pictured) was quoted as saying: "We are looking for value if the stock market could give us that, it would be great."

Barracuda said that Mr McQuater has not ruled out a float at some stage and will continue to monitor the situation.

The 153-pub business is backed by PPM Ventures, the private equity arm of Prudential.
