** Eddie Stobart Logistics Plc said on DBAY Advisors Limited, its third-largest shareholder, has been granted more time to make a firm takeover offer for the haulage company, and that their talks are ongoing. ** Packaging firm Liqui-Box Corp agreed to sell its bag-in-box business to Peak Packaging to comply with requirements from Britain's competition watchdog over the U.S.-based company's takeover of DS Smith's plastics business. ** South Africa's Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd (Implats) said it would buy Canada-based North American Palladium Ltd for about C$1 billion ($751.77 million), marking the miner's first purchase outside of Africa.

"We're happy to have clearance now in the U.K. and move one step closer to completing the acquisition of the DS Smith Plastics Division," Liqui-Box CEO Ken Swanson said. Liqui-Box, owned by private equity firm Olympus Partners, said it would sell its bag-in-box (BiB) business which caters to customers in Britain.

London-listed stocks most exposed to the British economy fell as investors worried the country was heading for a chaotic no-deal exit from the European Union or an early national election, while global growth concerns also persisted. It is relatively rare for the export-heavy FTSE 100 to move in lockstep with sterling, but losses in companies more exposed to the domestic economy, such as banks and housebuilders, offset gains in big internationally focused firms. The index was down 0.2% after climbing initially on sterling's fall to a three-year low, underscoring deepening concerns about the fall-out across the economy from a no-deal Brexit and the possibility of another election.
After looking at DS Smith Plc's (LON:SMDS) latest earnings announcement (30 April 2019), I found it useful to revisit...
