    Inflation relief helps boost FTSE 100, Fenner surges on Michelin takeover

    Britain's FTSE 100 index gained on Tuesday, with banks leading the way after data showed a small slowdown in inflation, while Fenner shares surged after a takeover offer from tyre maker Michelin. In the second approach for a UK mid-cap firm in as many days, Fenner (FENR.L) jumped 24 percent to the top of the FTSE 250 after France's Michelin (MICP.PA) made a 1.2 billion-pound ($1.7 billion) bid for the engineering company. "Our first take is that the deal looks good and offers a healthy premium especially in light of Fenner's very strong recent share price performance," said Stifel analysts.

    WannaCry attack is good business for cyber security firms

    For Kris Hagerman, chief executive of UK-based cyber security firm Sophos Group Plc (Frankfurt: 2SO.F - news) , the past week could have been bad. The WannaCry "ransomware" attack hobbled some of its hospital customers in Britain's National Health Service, forcing them to turn away ambulances and cancel surgeries. The company quickly removed a boast on its website that “The NHS is totally protected with Sophos.” In many industries, that sort of stumble would likely hit a company's reputation hard.
