BERLIN (Reuters) – Meridian Stiftung, a major shareholder in Metro, wants to reject a takeover offer from EP Global Commerce – owned by Czech and Slovak investors – for the German chain as it believes the price offered per share is too low, a newspaper reported.

German regional newspaper Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung said Meridian Stiftung did not want to end its commitment to Metro though, even for fundamental reasons. Meridian Stiftung holds a 14.19% stake in Metro.
