LONDON (Alliance News) - A top shareholder of Hammerson PLC intends to vote against the company's acquisition of rival shopping mall operator Intu Properties PLC, Reuters news agency reported last Friday citing a public statement from shareholder APG Asset Management.

According to the news agency, the Dutch pension fund owns around 7% stake in Hammerson.

In a public letter to Hammerson, APG said that has not changed its view that the share offer for Intu was "insufficiently attractive" for Hammerson shareholders.

"We believe that the proposed acquisition will significantly dilute Hammerson's high quality portfolio," APG said, according to Reuters.

Shares in Hammerson were trading 2.2% higher at 483.30 pence on Monday afternoon. Intu shares were down 4.2% at 210.40p.
