Singapore's F&N may separate property from other operations

SINGAPORE, June 28 Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:26am EDT

SINGAPORE, June 28 (Reuters) - Singapore's Fraser and Neave Ltd said on Friday it is considering separating its property-related businesses from its soft drinks, food and other operations.

"(F&N) wishes to announce that the company will appoint advisers to study and review alternative strategic options available to the company to unlock shareholder value," it said in a stock market filing.

"This may involve a segregation of its property-related businesses from its non-property related businesses."

Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi won control of the Singapore company in January after a bidding war with a group led by Overseas Union Enterprise Ltd.
