Investors Reportedly Eye Carrefour's Stores
Jun 6 14
Retailing companies, especially those in the cash and carry or wholesale business, are learnt to be negotiating with Carrefour SA (ENXTPA:CA) for buying out its stores. Carrefour, say sources, is exploring the option to exit the India market, following a slowing in its business at home and the new government’s opposition to foreign investment in multi-brand retailing and has reportedly engaged KPMG for helping it sell the India assets. Retailers present in India are in talks with Carrefour to buy its assets piecemeal, rather than the whole business, sources said. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE:WMT) is looking to expand to 50 in four or five years, is looking at Carrefour stores in locations where it has no presence. Walmart does not have any store in three of five Carrefour store locations, at Bangalore, Jaipur and Delhi. The other two Carrefour stores, at Meerut and Agra, are attractive for both METRO Cash and Carry India Private Limited and Reliance Market. According to Business Standard, neither Metro nor Reliance has any cash and carry store in Meerut or Agra. According to Business Standard, Carrefour did not reply to an emailed questionnaire on sale of its assets, sent to the company on June 2, 2014, a Walmart spokesperson declined to comment. A spokesperson at Metro, which has 16 outlets in the country, said: “Metro Cash & Carry India is neither aware of, nor has been approached with any information to suggest a transaction of any nature with Carrefour. We would, therefore, not like to comment on such speculation.”
Carrefour Reportedly Hires KPMG To Sell Indian Assets
May 21 14
Carrefour SA (ENXTPA:CA) has hired KPMG to facilitate sale of its assets in India. Carrefour has been sounding out potential buyers for its India assets in recent weeks and has hawked its business to various local retailers, a person with direct knowledge of the situation said. According to Economic Times, KPMG declined to comment and Frank Kenner, Regional Director and a spokesperson for Carrefour India, too declined to comment while an e-mailed questionnaire sent to the corporate communications department in Carrefour did not elicit any response, The person quoted earlier said, Carrefour is pulling out of the country not because of cacophony of anti-foreign investments in multibrand retailing from the BJP-led government, but due to lack of support and will from its headquarters that considers India as a bad option. According to another person, Jean Phillipe Garraux, Development Director for Carrefour India and the person responsible for its store development, is leaving the country as the pullout process is on. The process of pulling out of India started after the company's last-ditch effort to forge an alliance or sell its operations to Bharti Enterprises Limited failed amid differences over its valuations and the structure of the deal. Bharti asked for the moon, said a person aware of the negotiations. Bharti was in talks to acquire about 74% or the entire stake in Carrefour WC&C India. People quoted above said Carrefour India assets comprise mainly of five Carrefour-branded wholesale stores, merchandises and a skeletal supply chain and back-end infrastructure. Therefore, whatever selloff happens it will be in piecemeal manner with different companies buying stores in different cities, the person said.
