Dutch brewing group, Heineken, has said that it expects a Luxembourg court to rule on its application for an interim injunction on the proposed $600m merger deal agreed between the Argentinean brewing group, Quilmes Industrial (Quinsa), and Brazilian drinks corporation, AmBev, on June 25. Heineken believes the deal agreed between Quinsa and AmBev in May was in breach of a contract it had with Quinsa giving the Dutch group first refusal on any merger with its Argentine joint venture partner. Heineken owns 15% of Quinsa and the two have been operating together since 1984. Heineken had said that it was keen to increase its participation in the company. Heineken has requested an arbitration tribunal of the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris to adjudicate on the alleged breach of contract. It is seeking a six-month injunction from the court in Luxembourg, where Quinsa is incorporated, to allow time for the Paris tribunal to be set up.
