Davao-based businessman Dennis Uy has completed his 100-percent buyout of Philippine FamilyMart CVS Inc. (PFM), which operates a chain of 67 convenience stores in the Philippines, from the Ayala and Tantoco groups and their Japanese partners.

The foreign partners, FamilyMart Co. Ltd. and Itochu Corp. likewise unloaded their interest in PFM in favor of Uy-led petroleum retailer Phoenix Petroleum, based on a disclosure by SSI Group to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Thursday.
