O’Key Would Be ‘Potentially Attractive’ to Wal-Mart: CEO

O’Key Group SA’s chief executive officer said the 85-store Russian hypermarket chain would make a good fit for Wal-Mart Stores Inc. should the world’s largest retailer revive its interest in the country.

“We are a potentially attractive acquisition target for Wal-Mart,” CEO Patrick Longuet said in an interview in a Moscow hotel, while adding that O’Key’s controlling shareholders don’t plan to sell because the business has high growth potential.
