HO CHI MINH CITY -- Vietnam Beverage, a local unit of Thai Beverage, was the only company to register a bid for over 25% of Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage Corp., or Sabeco, as of 6 pm local time Monday, Vietnam's Ministry of Industry and Trade said. 

Vietnam Beverage is wholly owned by F&B Alliance Vietnam, a local unit of the F&B food and beverage conglomerate based in Singapore. A unit of Thai Beverage bought a 49% stake in F&B Alliance Vietnam in November -- an apparent move to secure a vehicle to bid for Sabeco.
