Inbev conquers Sab Miller on the fifth bid
On the fifth bid, Jan du Plessis at the head of Sab Miller and Carlos Brito, Anheuser Busch InBev CEO, shook hands. Thus the world’s largest beer group came to life, able to control one third of the “pale, stout and lager” products consumed in the world. This take-over has a nostalgic feel for us Italians: Peroni is moving on from Sab Miller to the new parent company giant AB InBev manufacturer of Bud and Corona. The French manager of the British beer group, take-over prey, was successful in negotiating continuous upward adjustments to reach the 44 pounds per share in cash, value just over the 39 pounds reserved to those who choose the mix option, made up of cash and share swap.
