AMSTERDAM -- A spokesman for hedge funds Centaurus Capital and Paulson & Co., Ahold shareholders that have urged the retail conglomerate to shed its U.S. business and concentrate on its core European holdings, said that the three parties met last week, according to published reports.
"It was an open dialogue such as companies have with major shareholders," said the spokesman, who declined to provide specifics.
Ahold has already said it would unload its scandal-plagued U.S. Foodservice division, based in Columbia, Md.
The two hedge funds have a combined 6.4 percent stake in the retailer.
