In his chairman‘s report at GPI‘s recent AGM, outgoing non-executive chair Hassen Adams indicated that it is continuing to negotiate the partial sale of Burger King.

“It is our intention to retain a non-operational minority interest in the business. This allows us to enter the phase where GPI migrates towards a pure investment company,” the report stated.

In February this year, GPI announced that it was exiting its struggling SA outlets of US chains Dunkin‘ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins.
