Anheuser Busch Agrees to Acquisition by InBev

InBev and Anheuser-Busch announced an agreement to combine the two companies, forming the world’s leading global brewer. Anheuser-Busch shareholders will receive $70 per share in cash, for an aggregate equity value of $52 billion.  The combined company will be called Anheuser Busch InBev. Both companies’ Boards of Directors have unanimously approved the transaction, and InBev has fully committed financing for the purchase.  The combination of Anheuser-Busch and InBev will create the global leader in the beer industry and one of the world’s top five consumer products companies.

The company will make St. Louis, Missouri the headquarters for the North American region and the global home of the flagship Budweiser brand. InBev CEO Carlos Brito will be chief executive officer of the combined company. The Board of Directors of the combined company will be comprised of the existing directors of the InBev Board, Anheuser-Busch President and CEO August Busch IV and one other current or former director from the Anheuser-Busch Board.

The transaction is subject to the approval of InBev and Anheuser-Busch shareholders, and other customary regulatory approvals. Shareholders of both companies will have an opportunity to vote on the proposed combination at special shareholder meetings that will be scheduled at a later date.  The combination is expected to be completed by the end of 2008.
