The board of United Breweries is pondering a rights issue, according to reports.
 
Indian media has claimed today (21 September) that the company, which is 37.5%-controlled by Scottish & Newcastle, will consider the issue at its next board meeting a week today (28 September).
 
No-one was immediately available for comment at UB when contacted by just-drinks today.
 
Last month, reports from India claimed that UB is planning to spend in the region of INR12bn (US$291m) on expanding production capacity in the country.
 
The brewer, which is part of the UB Group, currently has an annual capacity of around 120m cases.
