Mexico's Alsea agrees to sell Grupo Axo stake to General Atlantic

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican restaurant operator Alsea (ALSEA.MX) said on Tuesday it had reached an agreement with U.S. investment firm General Atlantic to sell its minority stake in Grupo Axo, a company that operates fashion brands.

Alsea, which manages international fast-food franchises and coffee shops such as Starbucks and Domino’s Pizza, also announced a deal with Grupo Axo that would allow Axo to acquire the minority stake owned by Alsea in Axo units in Chile.

    The two deals are worth a combined 1.6 billion pesos ($85.5 million), Alsea said in a statement.

    General Atlantic did not immediately respond to an after-hours request for comment.
