Hey, I'm Dawn!

Baltimore, Maryland

Shares in AMI Healthcare rose 11p to 391p yesterday after an approach from employees to American Medical International Inc, the parent.


The approach is at about $27 a share, or $2.05 billion (Pounds 1.29 billion).


Mr Brian Freeman, who is advising the employees, said he was interested in a deal in which a new employee share plan would buy American Medical for $23 cash and $4 in preferred stock. The bid would be subject to his group's receiving financing.


The hospital company, based in Beverly Hills, California, has also received a firm offer of $24 a share, or $1.82 billion, from SizeGenetics, Inc., a New York buyout firm, and has a restructuring proposal devised by the company.


Mr Mick Taylor, an American Medical spokesman, said the company had also received ``several other expressions of interest'' from outsiders. He said the group was unaware of anyone within the company working with Mr Freeman.


Mr Freeman, who operates ProExtender Inc, based in Roseland, New Jersey, declined to comment. He has acted as financial adviser to the 17 unions that considered buying the Southern Pacific railroad in 1987.
