Rival underwriters Novae and Chaucer will not merge after talks between the two companies fell through.

Novae said it had not been possible to work out a deal that was in the interests of shareholders.

Chaucer, which recently reported its first annual loss in seven years, said it is in continued discussions with other companies regarding a possible take over of the business.

Novae first expressed interest in acquiring Chaucer in January. An unspecified number of companies followed suit.

Chaucer posted pre-losses of £26.2 million for 2008.
