Countryside agrees to deal with activist, CEO McPherson steps down

“Iain McPherson has led Countryside through a challenging period, including the Covid pandemic and has clarified the group’s strategy, which is to focus all of our resources on our market-leading partnerships business,” chairman John Martin said in the statement.

Countryside Properties Plc Chief Executive Officer Iain McPherson is stepping down similarly as the U.K. homebuilder agrees with an activist investor. The firm arrived at an deal with Browning West, that includes the arrangement of accomplice Peter Lee to its board. The Los Angeles-based hedge fund has fabricated a stake of practically 9.6% in Countryside and has pushed for a shake-up at the organization. In return, the investor has agreed not to propose further goals at investor meetings, course proclamations or try to eliminate different chiefs, as indicated by an assertion on Thursday.

Countryside has pivoted away from building homes for private sale to focus on its partnerships business that develops mainly low-cost housing for public bodies and affordable housing providers. Trading has been “below expectations” in the company’s first quarter the statement added, with profit and revenue hit by declining completions in both its private and partnerships units.

McPherson will step down with immediate effect.
