January 2013 - Carrefour sells 60% interest in Indonesian operations (70 hm, 83 stores total) to CT Corp for $673 million. It's not a total exit, Carrefour becomes the franchisee instead of the franchisor.
November 2012 - Carrefour sells Colombian operations (over $2.2b annual sales, 72 hypermarkets, 16 convenience, 4 cash and carry, present in 38 cities) to Chilean retailer Censocud for $2.5 billion with financing from JP Morgan.

April 14, 2011: sold 49% of BSF Holding to Itau Unibanco (Carrefour's Brazilian financial services insurance division). Investors take note ! Company refocusing on key markets means operations not central to their future plans are being spunoff but because competition in those markets is intense, the buying prices have been higher than normal - Assets in Colombia were sold at 20x EV/eibtd (share price moved higher in response).
