Diners Club Australia still looking for a buyer

The Asian crisis dampened Ansett Holdings plans to flog their 68.2% interest in Diners Club Australia.

The latest dropouts from the list of bidders apparently include Commonwealth Bank, ANZ Banking Group, St George Bank and an Arab bank.

However, those left on the list include GE Capital, Westpac Banking Corporation, Macquarie Bank, AIG and other shareholders in Diners Club Australia.
