Euro to pound today asda: PRESS DIGEST- Financial Times

Shares of Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT) have plunged nearly 40% over the past year, hurt most recently by the company's failed merger talks with privately held industry peer MGA Entertainment, owner of brands such as Bratz, Little Tykes, and L.O.L. Surprise. Earlier this month, Mattel effectively rejected a second buyout offer from MGA that, based on subsequent comments from MGA founder and CEO Isaac Larian, reportedly not only included an underwhelming buyout premium but also came with the condition that Mattel's entire board of directors resign without further compensation and allow Larian to take over as its new chairman and CEO. Shortly thereafter, Larian suggested he was "looking at other options" to make a merger happen, a seeming hint that he would pursue a hostile takeover if Mattel didn't play nice.
