MEXICO: Femsa ponders beer/soft drinks integration
The US$2.7 billion Panamco deal will make Femsa the largest Coca-Cola bottler in Latin America. Panamco has operations in Mexico, Brazil, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Venezuela.
"Integration is a real possibility in some of the markets where we operate currently and where we hope to operate in the future once the acquisition of Panamco is completed," said Femsa's chairman, Jose Antonio Fernandez. "This could represent an attractive opportunity of growth as well as alternative ways of generating revenues and profits for Femsa in the future."
