Booker shares held by KSF

A British cash and carry firm says it's to talk to the provisional liquidators of Kaupthing Singer and Friedlander over a fifth of its shareholding.

Twenty-two per cent of Booker Group was owned by Kaupthing Capital Partners and is now being held by PricewaterhouseCoopers on behalf of KSF.

Booker is the largest food wholesale operator in the United Kingdom, and will move from the Alternative Investment market to a main listing in July.

The firm's chief executive Charles Wilson says he would like to talk to the receivers about what will happen to the shares as the failed bank is liquidated.
