BERLIN, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Metro B4B.DE on Thursday rejected a takeover offer by an acquisition vehicle owned by Czech and Slovak investors as insufficient.
EP Global Commerce, co-owned by Czech investor Daniel Kretinsky and Slovak partner Patrik Tkac, already failed last year with a 5.8 billion euros ($6.8 billion) takeover bid for Metro.
The new offer of 8.48 euros per ordinary share and some 8.87 euros per preference share undervalues Metro significantly, the wholesale group said in a statement.
