European shopping centre group Unibail-Rodamco announced plans to acquire shopping mall owner Westfield Corporation in early December. At the time, Unibail’s scrip-focused deal valued Westfield at $A10.01 per share, but this had fallen to around $A8.82 per share on 22 February. Asked about the future of the deal at the announcement of Westfield’s full-year results, co-CEO Peter Lowy advised that there was "no plan B" in place. Westfield’s 2017 profit of $US1.55 billion is 13.5 per cent higher than previously.
