“It has, however, informed Raymarine’s banking syndicate that if Raymarine were to enter into administration it would be willing to enter into a transaction with the administrator to acquire Raymarine Holdings Limited for a consideration that is likely to equate to approximately 17.5 pence (25 cents) per Raymarine share … in addition to providing for the repayment of the Raymarine group’s banking facilities,” Raymarine said in a statement.
