Pinewood Shepperton Studios has received another takeover approach, just two weeks after its largest shareholder, Peel Holdings, made a bid for the company.

Earlier this month, the studio received an $143m (£87.8m) takeover bid from Peel Holdings, which already has a 29.78% stake in Pinewood.

But Pinewood has revealed that it has had another bid approach from “an unconnected third party”, although no formal offer has been made yet.

Pinewood announced a 31% rise in pre-tax profits to $9.5m (£5.8m) last month as well as plans to invest up to 20% of equity in up to 4 British films per year, giving them access to shoot at the studio.
