Foxtons Group PLC, up 6.7% at 43.2 pence, 12-month range 28.64p-43.95p. The London-based estate agency rises amid reports it is coming under pressure from shareholders to sell itself. The Sunday Times reports that Milkwood Capital, which holds about a 4% stake in the firm, is the latest of its shareholders asking for a sale. ‘Public markets are no longer valuing the good work the management has done recently and the only way to extract fair value is for the board to carry out a sale process,’ Rhys Summerton, who runs Milkwood Capital, tells the Sunday Times. Canadian investor Converium Capital, reported to hold around 6% of Foxtons, has been lobbying the firm to carry out a strategic review over the past year and a half, the Sunday Times adds.
