InBev believes that other companies are more interested in Bavaria than it is. Speaking to reporters on Friday (10 June), the brewer's CEO, John Brock, reiterated that the company would not comment on specific acquisition targets.

A report by Reuters said Brock told reporters in London: "It is very clear that there are other people out there substantially more interested in Bavaria than we are." It is widely-thought that Heineken and SABMiller are the leaders in the race for Bavaria, although the Colombian brewer said earlier this year that it had no intention of selling.

Brock also said that InBev's strategy will focus on expansion in China, Russia and Germany, while keeping an eye open for "bolt-on" acquisitions in Latin America. "There are no transforming deals I wish to comment on," he added. "We have no plans for a transforming deal."

When contacted by just-drinks, a spokeswoman for the brewing giant said that she had nothing further to add to Brock's comments.
