Retirement village operator Metlifecare has come to a takeover agreement with Swedish firm EQT Infrastructure to buy all of its shares for $6 a share.
Metlifecare made the announcement to the NZX late on Friday afternoon.
The takeover had been at risk of collapsing in April after EQT said it was likely to terminate the sale because of the impact of Covid-19 on the retirement village business.
