NZ Superannuation Fund plans to buy 17 percent of Metlifecare

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand’s Superannuation Fund said on Friday it had entered a conditional agreement to buy a 17 percent stake in retirement village operator Metlifecare (MET.NZ) for NZ$126 million ($105.11 million).

Under the agreement, the fund would buy shares for NZ$3.53 per share, and take the fund’s total holding of the company to 19.9 percent.

The announcement follows a statement by New Zealand infrastructure investor Infratil Ltd (IFT.NZ) earlier in the day that it would buy a 19.9 percent stake in Metlifecare.

Australia’s FKP Property Group FKP.AX is unloading all of its 37.7 percent holding in the retirement village operator. ($1 = 1.1988 New Zealand dollars)
