Summary/
Abstract
On 11 November 2015, Carlos Brito, chief executive of global leading beer brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), presented his final offer of US$105.5 billion (£69.8 or £44 pounds per share), to acquire its rival, SABMiller, which the company accepted. The acquisition process had started in September and just over a month later, on 13 October, SABMiller had accepted the offer in principle, but had certain requirements before it would accept. Such a massive transaction could well present hurdles – one being anti-competitive issues. But would this acquisition deliver synergies soon enough for InBev, Brito wondered?
