Charoen Pokphand Group Co. Ltd. Key Developments

Charoen Pokphand And Thai Beverage Seeks Partners

Charoen Pokphand Group Co. Ltd. and Thai Beverage Public Company Limited (SGX:Y92) are on the lookout for partners to bankroll the government's high-speed train project, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said.

Dhanin Chearavanont May Buy Ek-Chai Distribution And LHBANK

Dhanin Chearavanont will buy Ek-Chai Distribution System Co. Limited and LH Financial Group Public Company Limited (SET:LHBANK) if they are put up for sale. Dhanin Chearavanont, Chairman of Charoen Pokphand Group Co. Ltd. (CP), said at a rare meeting with the media on November 24, 2014, "I'm a businessman. I look forward to investing and taking opportunities in any business that can make a profit. I'd take the opportunity to buy anything if it had potential and a good price." He also added that CP was interested in buying Tesco's assets in Thailand and LHBANK, but said the deals were not yet settled. However, he denied reports that they already acquired Tesco operation in Thailand. "I never heard him [Tesco's chief executive] say the Tesco business would be put up for sale. Personally, I think they still have options since they're not going to go bankrupt. Actually, I don't think they need to sell the assets. I believe the financial institutions are ready to offer them loans. Tesco Lotus was like my child. I had to sell it over a decade ago due to the 1997 financial crisis. Now we're definitely interested in buying it back," Dhanin Chearavanont said.

CP Eyes Tesco Lotus

Charoen Pokphand Group Co. Ltd. (CP) intends to acquire Ek-Chai Distribution System Co. Limited (Tesco Lotus). Charoen Pokphand Group Co. Ltd. plans to acquire Tesco Lotus if Tesco Plc decides to sell. Dhanin Chearavanont said he was approached by several bankers about Tesco's assets, but has not been involved in any discussion with Tesco executives. The analysts estimate Tesco Lotus to be worth about $10 billion. "We are keen to buy if Tesco decides to sell," he said. He has had informal talks with a domestic bank to explore a bid for Tesco Lotus, a source had said. "They helped us during the crisis. When they have a problem, we should help them," Dhanin said adding the Thai operation was "like his child".
