Johnston Press issued a brief statement today on speculation that a group of Scottish businessmen are making a bid for the Scotsman.
It said: "Johnston Press notes the press speculation regarding the potential disposal of the Scotsman. Whilst Company policy is not to comment on such speculation, Johnston Press can confirm that the board does not have any disposal process underway in this regard."
Speculation was sparked by a Sunday Times Business section story yesterday naming three businessmen said to be interested in buying the Scotsman.
