Heineken sweetens $6-billion bid for Tiger brewer Add to ...

Heineken NV has raised its offer for Fraser and Neave’s (F&N) stake in the maker of Tiger beer to $53 (Singapore) per share from $50 as it fights against a Thai billionaire, a source close to the situation said on Friday.

The Dutch brewer’s revised offer for Asia Pacific Breweries compares with a partial offer by the Thai group of $55 per APB share.

Control of APB is vital for Heineken, which had offered $50 per share for the 58 per cent it does not already own. That includes the 40 per cent of APB held by its long-time partner F&N, a drinks and property conglomerate.
