The T&T Stock Exchange (TTSE) received notice that the GraceKennedy Group
CEO Don Wehby announced the planned divestment of its Hardware & Lumber
subsidiary inclusive of the Rapid True Value and Agro Grace businesses. The deci-

and financial services in Jamaica and internationally.
The company has confirmed that on April 22, 2015, it entered into a conditional
agreement for the sale of its 58.1 per cent shareholdings in Hardware & Lumber
Ltd (H&L) which is reported under the Retail & Trading operating segment. Given
confidentiality agreements no further details can be provided pending finalisation
of the transaction. Wehby added that while no assurance can be given, it is antici-
pated that the sale should be concluded within the current financial year.
H&L currently comprises two separate divisions---Rapid True Value---the fore-
most local supplier of hardware and home improvement products, and the Agro
Grace business: local wholesaler and retailer of agricultural products. The H&L
Wholesale operations have now been merged into the Rapid True Value business.
There are currently 10 Rapid True Value outlets across Jamaica, along with five
