AB InBev Earnings Beat Estimates as World Cup Boosted Sales

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV, the world’s biggest brewer, reported second-quarter profit growth that beat estimates as soccer World Cup-related beer sales in Brazil helped offset declining sales in the U.S.

Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization rose 9.5 percent on an organic basis to $4.85 billion, the Leuven, Belgium-based company said. That compares with the median estimate of 13 analysts for 8.2 percent growth.
