Goodmans maker gets offer

AIM-listed electronic goods firm Harvard International confirmed yesterday that it has received a takeover approach from Chinese technology group Chengdu Geeya Technology Co, sending its shares up 44 per cent to 32.5p. The Hertfordshire-based firm, which supplies electronic goods and accessories under the Goodmans brand, urged its shareholders to “take no action at this time” given that discussions are at an early stage and that an offer might not emerge.
