5 Years : From May 2012 to May 2017
ProLogis European Properties (PEPR.AE) Wednesday said it would accept a takeover bid from U.S. industrial real-estate giant ProLogis (PLD) that values it at just under EUR1.22 billion due to worries about the liquidity of its share, even though it considers the bid too low.
Prologis, a Denver-based company, said Friday it had increased its takeover offer for the biggest owner of warehouses in Europe to EUR6.20 per share from a EUR6.10 per share.
PEPR in a statement said that it believed the offer undervalued the company, but given that ProLogis owned nearly 60% of its shares, leaving little free float, it said it felt compelled to accept.
ProLogis had increased its stake in the company to about 60% from around 39% after Dutch pension-fund asset manager APG Algemene Pensioen Groep NV and an affiliate of the Government of Singapore Investment Corp. agreed to sell their shares.
