SAO PAULO, April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Management of Ambev S.A. ("Newbev"),
as successor by merger to Companhia de Bebidas das Americas – Ambev ("Old
Ambev"), announces that it will file today a Form 15F with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to terminate Old Ambev's reporting obligations
in the United States with respect to the two former share classes (voting
common stock and non-voting preferred stock) of Old Ambev and a guaranty
provided by that company for the R$300,000,000 9.500% Notes due 2017 issued by
AmBev International Finance Co. Ltd. Because Old Ambev has undergone an
upstream merger with and into Newbev on January2,2014, Old Ambev ceased to
exist on that date and Newbev succeeded all of Old Ambev's rights and
obligations. Therefore, and in light of the resulting termination of Old
Ambev's reporting obligations in the United States, no more filings with the
SEC will be made for that company. Accordingly, annual reports on Form 20-F,
including for the year ended December 31, 2013, will no longer be filed for
Old Ambev. Newbev's annual report on Form20-F for the year ended December
31, 2013 was filed with the SEC on March24,2014. To access it, please visit
the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
