Soriana Talks With Prospective Comer Stores Buyers

Organizacion Soriana SAB de CV (BMV:SORIANA B) has contacted with potential buyers of the 12 stores it must sell off so as to meet with Comision Federal de la Competencia conditions set last month regarding Soriana's purchase of 146 stores belonging to Controladora Comercial Mexicana SAB DE CV (BMV:COMERCI UBC). Initially, the plan had been to buy 160 stores from La Comer but Cofece recommended that 26 should not form part of the package so as not to put competition at risk in the relevant localities. A quickly thrashed-out amended deal saw the 26 stores almost evenly split between Soriana and La Comer. The latter will most likely retain the 14 and re-build with some 54 stores to its name whilst the former is to divest from the 12 as ordered. That process will begin once the main transaction has been completed, notes Rodrigo Benet Cordova, director of Planeacion Estrategica y Comunicacion at Soriana, and may take up a sizeable chunk of 2016.

Soriana Identifies Buyers For 12 Comercial Mexicana Stores

As per the requirement by Mexican regulator, Cofece, Organizacion Soriana SAB de CV (BMV:SORIANA B) is required to sell 27 stores within a set period of time to purchasers approved by the regulator in order to get approval for the purchase of 160 stores from Controladora Comercial Mexicana SAB DE CV (BMV:COMERCI UBC). SeeNews reports on November 5, 2015, that Soriana identified three potential buyers for 12 of these stores.
