    -- FRASER AND NEAVE LTD 
    - Fraser and Neave (F&N) said on Friday it would distribute

to shareholders only after the Singapore property and drinks
conglomerate is no longer the subject of a takeover offer.

billion) bid for F&N last week, challenging a takeover offer for
the conglomerate from Thailand's third-richest man.
