UK: Anheuser-Busch InBev readies US$1.8bn note launch
Anheuser-Busch InBev will issue the two sets of notes next week
Anheuser-Busch InBev has lined up the launch of two sets of notes, collectively worth almost US$1.8bn.
The brewer said late yesterday (17 September) that it will issue two sets of notes early next week.
- Set one has been priced at EUR750m (US$1bn) and will be due in 2020 at an annual interest rate of 2.25%.
- The second set has been priced at GBP500m (US$795m) and will be due in 2025 at an annual interest rate of 4.00%.
A-B InBev said that it will use the proceeds “for general corporate purposes”.
The notes will list on the London Stock Exchange “in due course”, the brewer said.
