Hammerson to take over Intu

Hammerson to take over Intu

He's spent his life in shopping centres, doing all the usual stuff: going up the wrong escalators, knocking over invisible three-year-olds and walking into airless shops, staring blankly for a bit, and walking out again.

Hammerson boss David Atkins will lead the combined group.

Hammerson chairman David Tyler said: "This transaction will deliver real value for shareholders".

According to BBC News, the takeover will create the UK's largest property company with a value of £21bn. Intu's deputy chairman John Whittaker will be given the same role in the enlarged company, while its chairman John Strachan will join the board as senior non-executive director.

Intu's portfolio includes Lakeside Thurrock, Merry Hill in Dudley, the Gateshead Metrocentre and the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

Why did 'Long Island Medium' star Theresa Caputo split from her husband?
Theresa also explained that her show - which has been on the air since September 2011 - isn't the only cause of the tension on her marriage.

The combined group will target fast-growing markets in Spain and Ireland. Hammerson shareholders will own 55% of the combined firm and Intu shareholders will retain 45%.

If the proposed deal goes ahead, Intu's shareholders will receive 0.475 shares in the new business for each of their Intu shares.

Atkins said: "This marks an exciting milestone in the history of Hammerson".

"I hold Intu's high-quality centres in high regard and I look forward to working with a strengthened team to enhance the performance of our entire portfolio". Queensland Investment Corporation retained the other half until intu agreed to acquire the remaining 50 per cent previous year in a £410m deal.
