BREAKFAST DEALS: Branson breakaway?

Richard Branson won't rule out offloading his remaining Virgin Australia holding, while a bidding war for the Trust Company intensifies.

Fresh from his deal with Singapore Airlines, Sir Richard Branson is seemingly considering the full sale of his remaining stake in Virgin Australia. Elsewhere, Perpetual trumps Equity Trustees in the tussle over The Trust Company, and the takeover of WHK Group hits a hurdle. Also, who's making the decisions at Billabong?

Virgin Australia

Sir Richard Branson has flown to Perth with what appears to be an invitation for any carrier that might have eyes for Virgin Australia.
