His comments came as he raised his stake in Aegis to 27.56 per cent, intensifying speculation that he will bid for the media company.
The increase took him close to the 30 per cent holding that would compel him to make an offer for Aegis, the parent of Carat, Vizeum and the market research specialist Synovate.
