PHILIPPINES: San Miguel stake sale may not happen this year
Philippine Presidential spokesman Rigoberto Tiglao said on Monday that its sale of San Miguel to Kirin Brewery has been put on indefinite hold. This follows the announcement that Kirin will be acquiring a 15% stake in the food and beverage company for $536m.

The sale is still intended to finance a US$1bn trust fund for the development of the coconut industry.
