Indian retailer Future Retail and Amazon are said to be considering an out of court settlement after a year-long legal battle over the proposed sale of the former’s assets to Reliance Retail, as per two people familiar with the matter. The Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) is expected to give its initial rulings later this month on whether Future Retail should be party to the arbitration, as per ET.
