Over 10 percent of the minority owners of Wimp's parent company Aspiro had rejected the bid, meaning Jay Z has to amend his original offer for a 90-percent stake in the company, the Swedish Shareholders' Association said in a statement. The minority owners -- who believe Jay Z's bid undervalued the company's future potential -- had yet to hear back from from the platinum-selling artist. Jay Z used his controlling stake in Project Panther Bidco to launch a 464-million-kronor ($56-million, 49-million-euro) bid for Aspiro that was accepted early on by majority owner Schibsted, which controls 76 percent of the Swedish-listed company.
