Aug 4 (Reuters) - Del Monte Pacific Ltd said on Wednesday it will delay the initial public offering of its Philippine unit amid volatility in the stock exchange as the country reels from a surge in cases of the Delta variant of the coronavirus.
The offering, expected to raise up to 44.1 billion Philippine pesos ($888.84 million), making it the second-largest share offering in the Philippines, will be deferred until conditions improve, the Singapore-based food and beverage company said.
