chief investment partner)
LONDON May 29 UK private equity firm Electra
said on Thursday that it had met with activist investor
Edward Bramson but was unaware of any attempt by the famously
aggressive stakeholder to influence the group's strategy.
"We have had one meeting with Sherborne," said Electra's
Chairman Roger Yates, referring to Bramson's investment vehicle.
"After that, we have come out not aware of any specific agenda."
Bramson's Sherborne, a former stakeholder in
Electra's peer 3i, ramped up its holding in March and is
currently Electra's biggest shareholder with a 19.08 percent
