BRUSSELS Feb 8 Dutch brewer Heineken
said on Friday its acquisition of the rest of Asia Pacific
Breweries would boost its earnings per share slightly in the
first year and yield 25 million euros ($33.5 million) of synergy
benefits this year and next.
Heineken, the world's third largest brewer by volume, took
full control of the maker of Tiger beer in a S$7.9 billion ($6.4
billion) deal last year, principally by buying out its partner,
Singapore conglomerate Fraser & Neave.
