(Bloomberg) --Singapore’s second-largest property developer is offering to buy out shareholders of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels in a deal that would value the company at $2.84 billion.
City Developments stated that it has made a final offer for the London-traded hotel chain at 685 pence per share, representing a 37 per cent premium to the 6 June closing price of 500 pence up from a previous offer of 620 pence per share.
Several minority owners that represent about 43.6 per cent of outstanding shares have already agreed, said City Developments.
The Millennium & Copthorne chain comprises 135 hotels in the UK, Middle East as well as New Zealand and other countries.
