Cake company Inter Link says it is no longer in talks with a possible buyer, following an earlier announcement that it had been approached.

Inter Link said on 25 September that a private equity house had approached it with a view to a possible offer for the company.

Exploratory early-stage discussions have now terminated and no offer is anticipated, Inter Link announced this week.

Alwin Thompson, Inter Link’s executive chairman commented: "Now that these talks have terminated, we can concentrate all of our resources on the group’s increasingly important Christmas period and on delivering our ninth consecutive successful year."
