Intu to raise new equity in battle to repair balance sheet

Trafford Centre owner Intu aims to raise new equity

Retail property giant Intu intends to raise new equity as it seeks to fix its balance sheet.

Intu made a statement on its financing plans following a Sunday Times story yesterday that said the shopping centre owner wanted to raise £1bn, which would test investor appetite for retail property after a year that saw landlords suffer in the wake of insolvencies.
