Sudoku firm may add up to £100m

Bid speculation is surrounding Puzzler Media, the magazine publisher that has capitalised on the sudoku boom.

Puzzler was bought for £36.7m in April 2002 but its recent success has led to speculation that it will be sold for as much as £100m.

The company has a turnover of £17.6m and a deal anywhere near the mooted price tag will provide a windfall for Puzzler’s management team, led by Mel Lewis, the managing director, and Peter Nugent, the finance director.

The company also publishes magazines such as Woman’s Weekly, Kriss Kross and The Puzzler.
