Comercial Mexicana Says Chedraui ‘Rumors’ Are ‘Totally False’

October 11, 2012

Mexican retailer Controladora Comercial Mexicana SAB denied a report it’s in talks to sell itself to rival Grupo Comercial Chedraui SAB, saying “rumors” of a deal are “totally false.”

“There does not exist nor has there existed any kind of approach between the two companies,” Comercial Mexicana said in a statement to the Mexican stock exchange today. Chedraui denied the talks in a statement earlier today.

Mexico City-based newspaper Excelsior columnist Dario Celis reported that Chedraui may buy Comercial Mexicana, citing sources he didn’t name.
