BANGKOK -- Thailand liquor giant Thai Beverage will postpone a proposed initial public offering of its brewery unit, BeerCo, on the Singapore Exchange, the company said Friday, citing a resurgence of coronavirus cases in its main markets.

The deferment came in "view of the current uncertain market condition and volatile outlook, aggravated by the worsening COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand and other countries, which are not conducive for the proposed spinoff listing," ThaiBev said in a statement.
