Blog: Constellation's Sands looks to the stars

James Wilmore | 5 June 2013

It's a big week for Constellation Brands as it completes on its deal to take full ownership of Crown Imports and bags Grupo Modelo's Piedras Negras brewery in the process. 

This is all from the fall-out of Anheuser-Busch InBev's US$20.1bn acquisition of Modelo, which completed yesterday

A very relaxed Rob Sands, Constellation's CEO, gave an interview to CNBC shortly after the news broke yesterday. He confirmed that his company will effectively double in size as a result of the transactions and promised there will be "no job cuts" or "streamlining". 

Expect corks to be popping left, right and centre at Constellation towers on Friday.
