Australand Property backs Frasers $2.6B bid

Company News

Australand Property Group’s (ASX:ALZ) directors have unanimously backed a $2.6 billion offer from Singapore-listed Frasers Centrepoint Limited (SGX:TQ5). 
The Australian industrial property investor has now entered into a bid implementation agreement with its suitor after Frasers completed due diligence to progress the takeover. 
Frasers offered Australand $4.48 per share at the beginning of June, compared to a rival offer from Australian property developer Stockland (ASX:SGP) valued at $4.35 per share. 
At the time Fraser’s bid was announced Australand’s Chairman Paul Isherwood said the proposal would deliver a compelling value outcome and is superior to Stockland’s offer. 
Australand Property Group reported a net profit of $156 million for the 2013 calendar year.
