Bitter battle for the future of Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield


DECRYPTION - Two activist shareholders criticize the group's strategy, one month away from a crucial general meeting.

Christophe Cuvillier, president of European shopping center giant Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW), has only a few weeks to defeat the coup attempt in preparation to overthrow him.

Thursday, at breakfast time, he learned by a simple text the attack of two activist shareholders.

The sender of this message is none other than his distant predecessor Léon Bressler.

Associated with Xavier Niel, founder of Free and real estate investor, he wants to impose a 180 degree strategic turn on URW.

Xavier Niel and Léon Bressler named their project “Refocus”.
