Walmart restarts talks on possible sale of Asda stake
[LONDON] Walmart, the world's biggest retailer, has restarted talks with potential buyers of a stake in its British supermarket arm Asda, a Walmart spokesman said on Monday.
The talks had been put on hold in April so management could focus on dealing with the impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
"Walmart and Asda have restarted conversations with a small number of third-party investors who are interested in acquiring a stake in Asda and partnering with Walmart, following renewed inbound interest," the Walmart spokesman said.
