Ltd. and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board are frontrunners to acquire a stake, in a move that would value the Kiwi shopping malls at about NZD 3 billion ($2.8 billion) - far higher than the current book value of NZD Z2.7 billion. The deal is expected to meet with widespread support as the money will most likely be funnelled into early debt repayments, and the shopping centre landlord will still derive a management fee from running the malls.
