Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has told just-drinks that it is considering a secondary listing on the London Stock Exchange if the impending takeover of its North American business by The Coca-Cola Co is approved.

Back in February, Coca-Cola confirmed that it will acquire the North American operations of CCE, which is Coca-Cola's largest bottler. As part of the transaction, CCE's European operations will be owned by International CCE Inc, a new public company which will be split off and will acquire Coca-Cola's bottling operations in Norway and Sweden.

A spokesperson for CCE told just-drinks today (27 September): "We are considering a secondary listing but it will be very much at a time in the future. There is no particular date yet."

CCE would remain US-domiciled and New York-listed if the asset swap goes ahead.

CCE will hold a shareholder meeting to vote on the matter on 1 October in Atlanta, Georgia. Shareholders of record at close of business on 24 August are entitled to vote.
