STOCKS NEWS EUROPE-RealDolmen up as sale talk follows CEO departure

Shares in Belgian IT services company RealDolmen rise as much as 6 percent after press reports say that the recent departure of its acquisition-hungry CEO may clear the way for a possible sale of the firm.

"They conclude that instead of RealDolmen making acquisitions, the shareholders of RealDolmen prefer to sell the company, and that is a reflection that the market now has," Bank Degroof analyst Siddy Jobe says.

Belgian newspaper De Tijd said RealDolmen might seek a buyer following the departure of Chief Executive Bruno Segers, announced on Friday.
