Walmart Mulls Options for Part of Its Central American Business

Walmart Inc. is studying strategic alternatives for its operations in Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua, signaling another potential move to narrow its focus abroad. 

The options include joint ventures, strategic partnerships or alliances, a sale or other transactions, Walmart’s publicly traded Mexican and Central American unit said in a statement Monday. Walmart de Mexico SAB, or Walmex, plans to prioritize its business in Costa Rica and Guatemala, as well as its sprawling operations in Mexico.
