Cazoo, the online used-car dealer founded by British entrepreneur Alex Chesterman 18 months ago, is to go public in a deal with a US-listed special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC), says The Daily Telegraph. The deal will value the firm at an estimated £5bn, with Chesterman, who founded Lovefilm and Zoopla-holding about 25%, worth £1.25bn. Other shareholders include the Daily Mail’s parent firm, which owns a 20% stake.

David Schwimmer, chief executive of the London Stock Exchange, 1s getting a 25% pay rise of £200,000, taking his base pay to £1m. The increase is justified by completing the group’s £20bn takeover of data firm Refinitiv in January, which makes the timing “unfortunate,” says The Times.
