Johannesburg - Shareholders in listed Redefine International have approved all the resolutions required for its proposed acquisition of a R10 billion (£489 million) portfolio from the Aegon UK Property Fund and Banbury Cross Retail Park for R1.09bn (£52.5m), also from Aegon, to proceed.
The resolutions were passed by a 99.9 percent majority at an extraordinary general meeting held in London on Friday. The portfolio comprises 19 properties valued at £439.9m (R9.26bn) that generate an annual passing rent of £23.5m, while Banbury Cross Retail Park comprises 17 retail units.
