US: InBev sets date for Anheuser-Busch vote

By | 26 September 2008

InBev shareholders will get their chance to vote on the brewer's proposed takeover of Anheuser-Busch at the end of this month.

InBev announced this week that it would hold an Extraordinary General Meeting at 11am on 29 September, at its Leuven headquarters in Belgium.

The meeting will give shareholders the chance to approve their firm's US$52bn takeover of US brewing giant Anheuser-Busch, in what would be the largest ever deal in the global beer sector.

Earlier this week, InBev refuted suggestions that the current turmoil in financial markets could jeopardise the deal.

It said that its financial backers for the deal "represent a very diversified group of strong banks, giving InBev access to all significant capital markets".

Sectors: Beer & cider

Companies: InBev, Anheuser-Busch
