Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc. (NYSE: BUD) is no more. Any doubts over whether this merger was going to properly close are now history. InBev has now completed its acquisition of Anheuser-Busch. This merger will create the global leader in beer and one of the world’s top five consumer products companies. All shareholders of Anheuser-Busch common stock receive $70.00 per share in cash as part of this $52 billion merger.
The surviving post-merger company will be called Anheuser-Busch InBev. All regulatory approvals have been secured and all shareholders have approved this deal. Consider this one history.
