(a) Summary of the agreement. On November 11, 2015, Anheuser-Busch Inbev announced a deal to buy SABMiller for approximately $108 billion. AB InBev reserved the right to determine the strategy for obtaining antitrust authorization and agreed to do its best. Both parties agreed to provide information and support that could reasonably be required to obtain structuring authorizations and remedial action. AB InBev agreed that approvals may be needed through „better efforts” to offer divestitures to regulators. AB InBev also accepted a $3 billion reverse break fee. The DOJ submitted a second application to continue the review of the merger. The contract expires if it is not concluded within 18 months of the announcement (May 11, 2017).
The Anheuser-Busch InBev agreement for SABMiller met after the companies agreed in principle on October 13. Since then, they have negotiated the details of the merger. (3.7) AB InBev also acknowledges and acknowledges that any omission (or alleged omission) is the provision of assistance and/or information requested by AB InBev from SABMiller or a member of the SABMiller Group for AB InBev, to follow its strategy of compliance with preconditions or regulatory conditions (in accordance with this clause 3 or otherwise) and/or any provision of assistance and/or information to AB InBev by SABMiller or a member of the SABMill Group to this end does not in any way affect SABMiller`s claim to receive the break payment (as soon as a break payment has taken place), in accordance with the terms set out in paragraph 9 of this agreement (and subject to paragraph 9.2). „It`s better than leaving,” he said. „But if the pound falls another 5-10%, then all bets will be void.” This new structure has combined an offer and a merger procedure in Belgium with a UK regulatory procedure. We have also created a new holding company that is listed in Belgium, Mexico, South Africa and the United States. Mr. Brito did not specify how Anheuser-Busch InBev intended to address the overlap in China or the bottling of the combined soft drinks for its competitors, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo.
