AB InBev’s $100B SABMiller Offer: a Deal Worth Toasting?

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV made a third offer for SABMiller Plc, this time going public with a 65.2-billion pound ($99.7 billion) proposal that promptly won support from its biggest shareholder -- but not from the target. The move, which SABMiller noted was barely higher than the previous offer, raised the stakes in the back-and-forth battle over combining the world’s two largest brewers. A merger would create a beverage empire controlling the No. 1 or 2 positions in 24 of the world’s 30 biggest beer markets, according toExane BNP Paribas.
