Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD), an $82 billion sovereign wealth fund, said on Saturday its takeover bid for Spanish property firm Colonial should not be spurned.
Colonial said on Friday shareholders were still studying the 3 billion-euro-plus cash-and-bond offer from ICD and that both sides had decided to extend a deadline for talks until March 3.
"It's a good offer," ICD Managing Director Saad Abdul Razak told reporters. "Let's see what happens on Monday," he said.
Abdul Razak declined to comment further. (Reuters)
