SABMiller has announced that it will delist shares of its Colombian unit, Bavaria, a week later than originally planned.

Last week, SABMiller said that the company was planning to delist the shares on 22 October. However, Bavaria's head of corporate affairs, Fernando Jaramillo, said in a recent letter to the securities regulator that the shares will trade on the Colombian stock exchange until 30 October.

Speaking to just drinks today (25 October) a spokesperson for the company said: "That was the best estimate we had from the local stock exchange."

Bavaria is Colombia's second-largest listed company in market capitalisation and as of 30 September is worth a total of COP13.8 trillion (US$6.99 bn).
