(Corrects to clarify that Oasis has not backed Bidvest's offer)
JOHANNESBURG Dec 6 (Reuters) - South Africa's Oasis Group Holdings sold all of its roughly 2.2 percent stake in Adcock Ingram on the open market on Friday, a spokesman said.
Drugmaker Adcock is the subject of a takeover offer from Chilean company CFR Pharmaceuticals, which local conglomerate Bidvest is trying to block.
Santiago-based CFR Pharmaceuticals has offered $1.2 billion in cash and shares for all of Adcock. Bidvest has countered by offering cash for around a third of Adcock, which would give it a big enough stake to block the CFR deal.
