HA NOI (VNS)  — South Korean firm Lotte announced that it would purchase an additional 686,000 shares in confectionery company Bibica (BBC) from October 18 - 23, increasing its stake to 43.1 per cent.

The current foreign ownership in Bibica is 48.69 per cent, almost approaching the limit of 49 per cent. Therefore, Lotte will have to negotiate to buy the shares from other foreign investors.

The second biggest shareholder of Bibica is Saigon Securities Inc (SSI) with a 38.05 per cent stake.

There has been speculation around a possible takeover of BBC by Lotte, but this has been denied by the Korean investor. — VNS
