Heineken, which acquired Hartwall in 2008 as part of its joint purchase with Carlsberg (CARLb.CO) of Scottish & Newcastle, said the review was expected to be finalized before the end of the year.

The unit is a leading Finnish producer of beer, soft drinks, ciders, wines and spirits with 850 employees.
