The saga of San Miguel's planned IPO for its beer unit has taken another turn for the worse, according to reports.

A piece by Reuters today (11 April) has claimed that the Philippines-based company has cut the maximum it hopes to raise from the IPO of its domestic beer unit by 29%. Citing a source close to the situation, the news service said that San Miguel has trimmed its anticipate price range from between PHP8 (US$0.9) and PHP15.40 to between PHP8 and PHP11.
