(Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is to give a Brexit briefing to 150 chief executives on Friday, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

The call with the invited chief executives is unlikely to last more than half an hour and is due to begin at 4:30 p.m. (1530 GMT), the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the proceedings.

The story did not provide names of the executives invited. A spokeswoman for Downing Street declined to give an immediate comment on the report.
