    Australia's Wesfarmers to spin off Coles as competition bites

    Australia's Wesfarmers Ltd (WES.AX) plans to spin off its supermarket chain Coles and list it on the country's stock exchange, as fierce competition forces the retail giant to shed low-margin operations and focus on faster-growing businesses. Shares in the mining-to-home improvement conglomerate jumped as much as 7 percent after it announced on Friday the demerger of the country's No.2 supermarket chain that analysts say could be worth as much as A$20 billion ($16 billion), creating a top 30 firm on the bourse. The move comes more than a decade after Wesfarmers bought Coles, discount chains Kmart and Target, and the Officeworks business supplies chain for A$21 billion ($16 billion) in what was then Australia's biggest takeover.

    South African retailers Woolworths (WHLJ.J), Massmart (MSMJ.J) and Truworths International (TRUJ.J) are sticking to their investment plans, believing the new president's pledge to revive the economy will outweigh any hit to consumer spending from a hike in VAT sales tax.

    Australian watchdog blocks BP buy of Woolworths petrol stations

    Australia's antitrust regulator on Thursday blocked BP Plc's A$1.8 billion (1.04 billion pounds) purchase of Woolworths Ltd's petrol stations, even after the oil company offered to sell some stations to ease competition concerns. BP and Woolworths, which wants to exit the business to focus on its supermarkets, said they were disappointed by the decision after months of talks with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and were reviewing what to do next. "We remain confident that, with appropriate divestments as offered by BP, this transaction would not substantially lessen competition," BP Australia President Andy Holmes said in a statement.

    Australian regulator to oppose BP buy of Woolworths gas stations

    "We consider that BP acquiring Woolworths' service stations will be likely to substantially lessen competition in the retail supply of fuel," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Chairman Rod Sims said in a statement.

ACCC found that the acquisition would likely lead to higher prices and reduce competition.
