Introduction
Asia Pacific Breweries is Heineken’s joint venture in Singapore, with a variety of brands and consumer beverages that enjoy prominence in their local markets. The venture is crucial to the firm's growth strategy. This has been compromised following a competitor acquiring shares in the partner firm. Heineken considers this a threat, and wants to gain full control of the venture.
