Britain's Serco abandons SRA bid: report
LONDON (Reuters) - British services company Serco (SRP.L) has pulled out of a $2 billion bid for U.S. defense consulting firm SRA International Inc SRX.N, the Daily Telegraph said on Monday.
The Sunday Telegraph reported earlier that the bid had been rebuffed but Serco was "sweetening" its offer.
Serco said in a statement late on Sunday that "it is not in any discussions regarding any major transaction at this time," without elaborating further.
If the deal were to go through, it would make Serco, which manages services for Britain's schools and armed forces and runs prisons and rail services, the biggest foreign company providing services to the U.S. government, the newspaper said.
SRA is a Fairfax, Virginia-based defense consulting firm.
Serco, advised by UBS, was thought to have made its initial offer some weeks ago, the Sunday Telegraph said.
