US hedge fund Inclusive Capital Partners circles British housebuilder Countryside

US hedge fund Inclusive Capital Partners is attempting a hostile £1.5bn takeover of Countryside Partnerships

A US hedge fund has stepped up its campaign to take over British housebuilder Countryside Partnerships.

Inclusive Capital Partners is attempting a hostile £1.5billion takeover after being rejected twice by the board. It owns 9.2 per cent of Countryside, and has taken its 295p-per-share offer on to investors.

It believes Countryside can be higher off in private hands, which might facilitate a turnaround.  The most important shareholder, Browning West, which owns 15.3 per cent, has now written to the board asking it to kick off a sale process.

Yesterday, In-Cap, which manages billions of dollars value of assets, said it supported such a move. 

Its founders say their passion is the ‘pursuit of a healthy planet and the health of its inhabitants’.

Countryside stock is up since In-Cap’s interest began, and rose 2.3 per cent, or 6.6p, to 289.4p but is down 42 per cent prior to now yr.
