Pernod-Ricard SA, the maker of Chivas Regal and Absolut vodka, has no plans to make acquisitions as it focuses on innovating its own brands.
“Today, the strategy is extremely clear: no acquisitions,” Chief Executive Officer Pierre Pringuet said in an interview in Paris, when asked if he was interested in Fortune Brands Inc.’s drinks unit. He said that there is no “clear gap” in Pernod’s portfolio of products.
