Intu, the owner of the Chapelfield shopping centre, has been made a higher offer in an attempted takeover of the group by three property investors.

The Peel Group, the Olayan Group and Brookfield Property Group are now offering Intu a buyout offer, valuing the company at £2.8bn.

The three revised their initial proposal of buying shares for 205p up to 215p, following conversations with Intu’s directors.

Shares in Intu jumped more than 14% on Friday morning following the news.

The consortium will now be granted access to company documents as it considers whether to make a firm offer. The bidders must decide by November 1.

Peel Group, which is owned by Intu deputy chairman John Whittaker, already holds a 26% stake of the company.

The consortium’s valuation is significantly less than the £3.4bn rival property giant Hammerson offered in April before abandoning the deal.

As diesel car registrations drop, more and more motorists are becoming aware of the benefits of hybrid cars and how easy they are to drive. Toyota’s pioneering role in hybrid technology means nearly half its total sales now combine petrol and electric power, says motoring editor Andy Russell.
