The article reports that outdoor media owners in Great Britain are circling their rival Maiden Outdoor, as the possibility of the company selling off its major assets increased after it failed to find a buyer for the business. Maiden, the country's fourth-biggest outdoor advertising company, put itself up for sale in December 2005 after it breached banking covenants. There is also mounting speculation that Maiden's prized £700 million-plus contracts with National Rail will have to be re-tendered.
