TOKYO Feb 13 Japan's Kirin Holdings Co
said on Monday it would sell its Brazilian unit to Heineken NV
subsidiary Bavaria S.A. for 2.2 billion Brazilian
reais ($706 million).
The transfer will be executed immediately upon approval by
Brazil's antitrust agency, Kirin said in a statement.
Heineken had said last month it was in talks with Kirin over
the deal. Brasil Kirin operates 12 breweries and was created in
2011 after Kirin paid 6.3 billion reais for Brazil's Schincariol
($1 = 3.1145 reais)
