FRANCE: Remy Cointreau hands staff share windfall in M&A "absence"
Remy Cointreau sees no acquisitions on the horizon
The French group said yesterday it will give 20% of the 1,428,794 treasury shares it has accrued in a buyback programme to employees. The remaining shares were reallocated to the cancellation of shares as part of a share capital reduction plan.
