Following sales of its operation in the UK to Booker in 2012, Metro Group retained stake within the Booker Group.

Metro Group hasfinally decided to sell 9% of shareholding in the UK cash and carry chain Booker, to reinvest the money in other areas of focus in its own business and to further reduce its debt.

Metro Group will continue strategic partnership with Booker in the UK, which during past two years yielded positive results for both partners.
