F&N says Kirin has shown no intention to sell stake
SINGAPORE, Sept 28
SINGAPORE, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Japan's Kirin Holdings Co Ltd has not indicated any intention to sell its nearly 15 percent stake in Singapore's Fraser and Neave Ltd, F&N's financial controller Hui Choon Kit said on Friday.
Sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Friday the Japanese brewer, the second-biggest shareholder in the drinks and property group, was exploring several options, including selling its F&N stake to Thai Beverage or another potential buyer at a higher price.
Kirin had said previously it was interested in F&N's food and non-alcoholic drinks business.
Shareholders of F&N voted in favour of selling its beer business, Asia Pacific Breweries Ltd, to Heineken NV in a $6.3 billion deal. (Reporting by Eveline Danubrata; Editing by John O'Callaghan)
