In 1972, the National Bus Company decided to bring its scheduled coach services run by regional bus companies to just one brand. Initially named National, the National Express brand was first used in 1974. Services continued to operate under their individual names. During the 1980s, National Express was forced to undergo a management buyout, but after this financial performance began to deteriorate, so as a consequence a new management team took over the company in 1991. By 1992, the company was performing better so it debuted on the London Stock Exchange. The company continued to perform well until 2009, as flights became cheaper and trains expanded their network, it began to struggle. As a result of this, National Express was available to buy. A number of shareholding companies including the Spanish Cosmen family put a bid in, but this was later withdrawn. Fellow bus company Stagecoach group also made an offer, but again this did not proceed. In late 2009, National Express announced that it intended to raise the money needed through shares.
