Shares in Indian Hotels Co Ltd , controlled by the Tata Group, opened up 2.5 percent on Friday morning after Orient-Express rejected the Indian company's $1.2 billion unsolicited takeover bid, saying it is too cheap.

The Indian Hotels proposal ... is deeply unattractive from a financial perspective, Orient-Express Chairman Robert Lovejoy said in a statement late on Thursday.

Indian Hotels shares had fallen sharply after the company announced the bid on Oct. 18, as analysts were worried that the acquisition would worsen the company's debt profile.
