(Reuters) – Halfords Group (LON:) Plc said it would buy Axle Group Holdings Ltd, which owns the popular National tyre servicing brand, for 62 million pounds ($82.54 million) as the motoring and cycling retailer expands its maintenance and repair business.
The company, which has benefited from a surge in cycling during the COVID-19 pandemic, said on Wednesday it intends to partially fund the acquisition by raising about 64 million pounds through a non-preemptive placing, a subscription and a retail offer.
