Tanarra Capital wishes to make clear that the story in today’s Australian Financial Review “Street Talk” column about it working on a take-private bid for Tabcorp or parts of Tabcorp is false and misleading. It has no basis in truth, now or at any time past. The journalist, who did not contact Tanarra before publishing the story, was told this last night immediately after it appeared online, yet the Australian Financial Review has published the story as its prominent column lead and headline in its print version this morning. Investors should disregard this story.
