Anheuser-Busch InBev has declined to comment on reports that it is in talks to refinance a loan related to InBev's US$52bn takeover of Anheuser-Busch.

The Stella Artois and Budweiser brewer is in talks with banks to refinance US$13bn in loans used to pay for the A-B deal in late 2008, Reuters reported today (16 February), citing banking sources.

A spokesperson for A-B InBev declined to comment on the matter to just-drinks.

The brewer said in December that it had $17.2bn outstanding from the A-B deal, with most repayments not due until November 2013.

The group sold off more than $7bn in assets in 2009 to help pay for the acquisition.
