Carlsberg has said it has "no current plans" to sell its remaining shares in South Korea's largest brewer, Hite.

A Carlsberg spokesman was commenting on reports that the Danish brewing giant was looking to sell its 13.1% stake in Hite just two weeks after offloading an 11.9% interest in the company.

"We sold the 11.9% stake in Hite at a good price (but) we have no current plans to sell the rest of the shares," the spokesman told just-drinks today (12 December).

Carlsberg sold part of its stake in Hite on 2 December to reduce debt and raised DKK1.9bn (US$304.8m) from the sale. The brewer said it was part of its strategy to free up cash from minority positions where there was "no clear path to control".
