Heineken (HINKY.PK) offers as much as $6B for full control of Asia Pacific Breweries (APBRY.PK) to prevent Thai Beverage billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi from muscling in on a vital emerging-market asset. Heineken, which owns 42% of APB, says it will seek to acquire the outstanding shares in the Singapore-based maker of Tiger beer.
