(Reuters) – Eddie Stobart Logistics Plc <ESLE.L> said on Wednesday it had received a “highly preliminary” expression of interest from TVFC Ltd, a company controlled by Stobart Group’s <STOB.L> former boss Andrew Tinkler.

Earlier this month, Eddie Stobart said that its third largest shareholder, DBAY Advisors Limited, had expressed a similar interest in taking over the company.

Eddie Stobart was earlier a part of the larger Stobart Group.
