APB takeover: Likely scenario

July 20, 2012 at 4:30 pm Leave a comment

Heineken latest offer of $50 per share to takeover APB shares from F & N raises the question whether F & N will accept the offer. Kirin Holdings and soon to be shareholder of F & N, Thai Beverages no doubt will prefer APB to be in F & N roster as it is the crown jewel. OCBC, Great Eastern holdings and Lee Rubber Co. will just sell to the highest bidder. Presently,it is Heineken, so unless Kindest Place(Thai Beverage ally- what an odd name when you are launching a hostile move) decides to bid higher, Heineken will get the APB shares from OCBC/GE/Lee co.

The most likely scenario could be F&N blocking the sale of APB to Heineken unless it wants to concentrate only on non-alcoholic beverage/ property/publishing business and its relationship with Heineken has turned sour over the years. Thus, Heineken’s move will result in it getting more shares but still not in full control of APB.
