MILAN Oct 11 The offer of Italy's Feidos for
struggling real-estate manager Prelios envisages a
capital hike of 135 million euros ($174 million), a source close
to Prelios's board said on Thursday.
Under the proposed bid, Feidos would contribute 25 million
euros to the cash call, Prelios's controlling shareholders
another 25 million euros and the remainder will be guaranteed by
banks, the source said.
Feidos, an Italian consortium led by real estate
entrepreneur Massimo Caputi, is due to start exclusive talks to
buy Prelios, which has been hit by writedowns on its property
investments in recession-hit Italy.
