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.

A-B InBev was trumpeted by an analyst this week as being the best-placed global brewer to benefit from a rebound in the world's beer volumes next year.
