Aggreko takeover to be opposed by 12% shareholder


Aggreko PLC’s (LON:AGK) takeover is reportedly to be opposed by the company’s biggest shareholder.

Liontrust Asset Management, which holds a 12% stake in the temporary power supply company, intends to vote against the £2.3bn offer from private equity groups TDR and I Squared.

The deal, priced at 880p per share, was recommended by the FTSE 250 group’s board in early March.

As well as Liontrust, Sky News reported that a number of other shareholders are understood to have doubts about the price of the deal.

Structured as a scheme of arrangement, the deal requires the backing of 75% of shareholders to be passed.
