And Like That, Budweiser Goes European (BUD)

Print Email

Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc. (NYSE: BUD) is no more.  Any doubts over whether  this merger was going to properly close are now history.  InBev has now completed its acquisition of Anheuser-Busch. This merger will create the global leader in beer and one of the world’s top five consumer products companies.  All shareholders of Anheuser-Busch common stock receive $70.00 per share in cash as part of this $52 billion merger.

The surviving post-merger company will be called Anheuser-Busch InBev.  All regulatory approvals have been secured and all shareholders have approved this deal.  Consider this one history.
