SABMiller is planning a public offer for the class A shares in Union de Cervecerias Peruanas Backus & Johnston (Backus) that it does not already own, according to a report today (25 Octrober).

Dow Jones cited a filing with the Peruvian securities regulatory agency that said the offer for shares in the Peruvian drinks producer would be made through SABMiller subsidiary Racetrack Peru.

The offer, to be carried out on the Lima Stock Exchange, will be at US$25.34 per share and will begin tomorrow.

SABMiller took control of Backus when it acquired Colombian brewer Bavaria earlier this year.
