Anheuser-Busch InBev has submitted details of its GBP750m (US$1.2bn) bond, launched to help pay for InBev's acquisition of A-B, to UK stock exchange authorities.

A-B InBev said today that it has filed details of the eight-year bond with the UK Listing Authority.

The bond, which will have an annual interest rate of 6.5%, will mature on 23 June 2017.

Proceeds will be used to help pay off debt accrued by InBev in its US$52bn takeover of Budweiser brewer A-B last year, the brewing giant said.

This week, several private equity firms have been linked with a deal for A-B InBev's Eastern Europe brewing assets. The group is committed to disposals to pay off a loan taken out to finance the A-B buyout.
