SWEDEN: Swedes keen on buying V&S stock - survey

By | 11 May 2007

A survey in Sweden has found that the majority of people would be interested in buying shares in V&S Group.

The survey, run by the business website E24 in Sweden earlier this week, found that 56.9% of Swedes asked said they would buy shares in the state-owned company should the Government consider listing V&S on the stock market.

The drinks company, which owns the Absolut vodka brand, is one of six state-owned companies that the Swedish government is looking to sell.

The country's parliament is scheduled to vote on the Government's plans later this month, with a sale set to trigger a bidding frenzy among the world's drinks companies.

Sectors: Spirits

Companies: V&S, Absolut
