US private equity firm JC Flowers is expected to lodge a firm bid for EBS, led by Fergus Murphy (above) before tomorrow's deadline.
The private equity firm is likely to be jostling for position with Irish Life & Permanent, Carlyle Group/Cardinal Asset Management and TV3 owner Doughty Hanson.
EBS needs to raise €785m to meet regulatory requirements. The Government has already injected €350m into the building society.
