Auckland-based retailer Walmart has increased its stake in Wkh, its first overseas business, to 18.2 per cent of the company, making it one of the biggest foreign shareholders in the company.

Walmart’s chief operating officer Joe Giddens said in a statement that the deal “will create the most sustainable and effective Walmart” and that the investment will boost the local economy.

The deal also marks a return to the retail sector for Gidden, who stepped down in June.

In January, the company announced plans to close more than 1,000 stores in Australia, which will save $1 billion.

Walmart was among retailers who had said it would shut down in Australia by the end of 2019.

Last year, Walmart said it planned to close its remaining 2,500 stores by the middle of 2019 and that it would reduce its workforce to about 2,000 from the current 30,000 in Australia.
