Wochit 0:59 mins

Mexico's biggest brewers, Corona maker Grupo Modelo and Sol producer Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, have agreed to face more competition to end a dispute over their long domination of the domestic beer market, the world's sixth-biggest. Ford Motor Company's European chief Stephen Odell said he estimates that the automotive industry in Europe is making 1.5 million to 2 million vehicles each year more than the present market's demand. At least three shareholders who collectively hold nearly 3 percent of Dell Inc shares plan to vote against Michael Dell's $24.4 billion buyout offer, raising questions about proxy adviser Institutional Shareholder Services' sway with the PC maker's shareholders. In an email to Reuters, an ISS spokesperson defended supporting the deal. "ISS' role is to analyze the deal and make a recommendation that we see as being in the best interest of shareholders. That's what we've done," the email said. "At the end of the day however, as with any proxy vote, shareholders will make their own decisions based on their own circumstances," she said.
