Metcash and Pick n Pay Retailers are extending the cut-off date in their agreement to acquire issued shares in Interfrank Group Holdings.

The two companies are extending the date from 31 July 2011 to 30 September 2011.

The two month extension has been agreed in light that the parties are still waiting judgement in their Federal Court action with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) that seek to block the transaction in March.
