UB Group in talks with KFA lenders to cut debt
UK drinks group Diageo agreed last November to buy a 53.4 per cent stake in United Spirits Ltd for $2.1 billion under a two-stage process.
New Delhi: UB Group, the parent of debt-laden Kingfisher Airlines, said it was in talks with lenders to the carrier to cut their exposure by using proceeds from a stake sale in a group company to Diageo Plc. The statement comes days after lenders to Kingfisher said they would move ahead towards recovering $1.4 billion of loans in default after the company failed to come up with a viable funding plan.
