CORRECTION: Berentzen-Gruppe sale just one option
Berentzen-Gruppe has clarified a report on just-drinks earlier this week, claiming that the German spirits and soft drinks company is putting itself up for sale.
In the report yesterday (30 June), we wrote that a company spokesperson had confirmed that the company will sell up. The company said today (1 July), however, that a sale was one of a number of options.
"Ordinary shareholders are currently checking all options as part of the company's strategic development," the company said today. "Such options include merging the company with a strategic partner or else having the partners sell all the company's ordinary shares."
Berentzen added that its ordinary shareholders have commissioned Privatbank M.M.Warburg & CO "to analyse the market in order to find suitable business partners to buy the ordinary shares".
We apologise to Berentzen for the confusion and are happy to set the record straight.
