Shares fall as much as 6%

Reuters  |  Mumbai 

Shares in United Spirits Ltd fell as much as 6% on Monday after a court ordered the annulment of the sale of the Indian spirits maker to British group Diageo. Karnataka High Court ordered the cancellation of the sale on Friday in response to a petition by creditors of United Breweries Holdings Ltd , which sold its stake in United Spirits to the British firm through a complicated share transaction. United Breweries Holdings initially fell as much 9.1%, but was down 3.6% at 9.31 am, compared with a 0.4% gain in the broader Nifty. United Spirits shares were down 1.2% at 9.32 am.
