Delhaize quiet on Ahold rumours

Belgian supermarket group Delhaize has refused to comment on rumours that it is in talks with Dutch food giant Ahold about a possible split up or merger, the Financieele Dagblad reports today. Ahold is under pressure from two hedge funds to split up the company. Analysts say a merger is unlikely but suggest Delhaize may be a possible buyer for Ahold’s US supermarkets.
