AMSTERDAM, July 3 Investor group JAB might
increase its stake in Dutch coffee and tea company DE Master
Blenders 1753 further after obtaining a stake of
12.19, JAB said on Tuesday.
When asked if JAB could increase its stake further, JAB
spokeswoman Elke Neujahr said: "This may happen but we will
always stay at a minority stake."
A regulatory filing at Dutch market regulator AFM showed JAB
affiliates had obtained a stake in DE last week, sending up DE
shares as much as 15 percent on Tuesday.
