Grammer shareholder Cascade says Ningbo offer insufficient, seeks 100 eur/shr

FRANKFURT, May 30 (Reuters) - Grammer shareholder Cascade international on Wednesday said it sees fair value of Grammer shares at about 100 euros ($116.14) a share, dismissing a 61.25 euros a share indicative bid from China’s Ningbo Jifeng Auto Parts as insufficient.

“We regard the offer as economically insufficient,” Cascade International Investment said in a statement on Wednesday.

Grammer has been at the centre of a power struggle between Bosnia’s Hastor family and Ningbo Jifeng, which each hold shares of at least 20 percent in the company.

Cascade, a company controlled by the Hastor family, has accused Grammer’s management of market manipulation to help Ningbo Jifeng build a stake.

By contrast, Grammer’s management has welcomed Ningbo Jifeng, another supplier of vehicle interior components, as a potential white knight in its conflict with Hastor.

Chinese auto supplier Ningbo Jifeng Auto Parts on Tuesday said it is aiming to bid 61.25 euros per share, valuing the group at around 772 million euros ($893 million), including dividends. ($1 = 0.8610 euros) (Reporting by Edward Taylor Editing by Ludwig Burger)
