The announcement of AdTech Hub comes as SCA responded to the takeover proposal from ARN and Anchorage Capital this week.

The message from the board is that the offer is not enough and it wants a revised proposal. 

In a release to the ASX, the board responded to the complicated plan to acquire all the SCA radio and TV assets and break them up into three, or possibly more, separate businesses.
