US: Quinsa shares to be removed from NYSE

By | 15 February 2008

AmBev has been informed that trading in the shares of its subsidiary Quinsa has been suspended in the US.

The announcement, made by the New York Stock Exchange yesterday (14 February), follows the closure of AmBev's tender offer this week for the outstanding shares it does not already own in Quinsa.

The NYSE said it will now make an application to the US Securities and Exchange Commission to delist the American Depositary Shares. The stock exchange said that it normally considers suspending and removing the listing of a company when the number of outstanding shares is less than 600,000.

Quinsa had advised the NYSE that only 114,311 ADSs remained outstanding after the closure of the public tender offer. Earlier this week, AmBev said that, upon settlement of the offer, its voting interest in Quinsa will be 99.56% and its economic interest will be 99.26%.

Quinsa represents AmBev's brewing interests in Argentina.

Focus - Inbev's move for Anheuser-Busch

InBev's announcement late yesterday (11 June) that it has made an offer to acquire Anheuser-Busch comes as little surprise. Speculation of a tie-up between the brewers has surfaced over the last 18 months or so. But the amount offered - US$65 per share - certainly looks enticing to A-B's shareholders. So, it's a done deal, yes? Olly Wehring takes a closer look at the offer.
