Dongwon Industries eyes acquiring McDonald's Korea, decision yet to be made

SEOUL, Feb 6 (Reuters) - South Korea's Dongwon Industries Co Ltd (006040.KS) in a regulatory filing on Monday said it is considering buying the local unit of U.S. fast-food chain McDonald's Corp (MCD.N).

The unit is wholly owned by its parent's U.S. headquarters.

Last year, McDonald's Korea said it was seeking a new owner, nearly six years after its first failed attempt.
