Baltika Buys Pikra StakeRussia's largest brewer Baltika bought a 16.38 percent stake in the East-Siberian Pikra brewery, Baltika said Thursday in a statement, news agency Itar-Tass reported.
Baltika would not name who it had purchased the stake from or how much it had paid in the deal, the agency said. The St. Petersburg-based brewer did not hold any shares in Pikra previous to the purchase.
