I’ve held off on posting about the pending negotiations of InBev purchasing A-B since until there is an agreement, a press release, and regulatory approval it doesn’t really matter that much to you and me. Well, yesterday two of the three were completed and A-B agreed to InBev’s offer to make sweet multinational behemoth love. This is being called a merger, but it seems like InBev made the moves and was calling the shots.
It looks like A-B will likely sell off its theme park business but will continue using its U.S. breweries to inflict sub-standard beer on North America. “The companies also said they remain commited to A-B’s wholesalers”. I pulled out my Merger Press Release to English Dictionary and found out this translates as: wholesalers will be getting the shaft after the dust settles.
