Intu acquires remaining 50% of Merry Hill
Shopping centre operator Intu has exchanged contracts with the Queensland Investment Corporation to acquire the remaining 50% of Merry Hill that it does not already own for Â£410 million.
The estate comprises the Intu Merry Hill shopping centre, two retail parks, office and leisure uses along with development land.
Intu acquired its first a 50% stake in Merry Hill in 2014. Having bought the estate in 2007, Queensland Investment Corporation retained the other 50% holding but in 2015 decided to exit the interest.
David Fischel, Intu chief executive, said: “We are pleased to have been able to acquire the remaining 50% interest in Intu Merry Hill, some two years after our original 50% acquisition in 2014.
"Our ownership and asset management to date has provided us with ample evidence of the centre’s upside potential, whatever the outcome of the EU referendum.”
