$107 billion merger makes major steps forward

As part of the approval, SAB Miller must divest its worldwide rights to Miller Beer brands, and AB InBev must cease anticompetitive incentives for distributors.

Big things are brewing as the Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller merger moves forward.

The U.S. SAB Miller must “divest itself of the worldwide rights to Miller Beer brands,” reported Consumerist, which means that the company will no longer sell any Miller products once the merger officially goes through.

AB InBev, in turn, is prohibited from providing incentives or rewards to distributors for selling a larger percentage of its beer in comparison to its competitors, Bloomberg detailed. Additionally, the company is required to notify antitrust officials if it purchases a craft brewer in the future, despite the size of the brewery.

The merger has already been approved by regulators in South Africa and Europe. The brewers still need clearance from China in order to seal the deal.

The Justice Department on Wednesday signed off on Anheuser-Busch InBev NV’s roughly $108 billion acquisition of rival SABMiller PLC, after the beer companies agreed to several conditions to secure the government’s approval.

As part of the Justice Department and AB InBev settlement, the brewer agreed to allow antitrust enforcers to review the brewer’s future craft beer and distributor acquisitions. The settlement also prohibits the Belgian-based brewer from instituting incentive programs that encourage AB InBev distributors to sell and promote its beers over rivals.

AB InBev BUD, +0.59% already had agreed to sell SABMiller’s UK:SAB U.S. business interest to Molson Coors Brewing Co. TAP, +0.52% in a pre-emptive move to win antitrust approval. The $12 billion sale to Molson of SABMiller’s 58% interest in MillerCoors and U.S. rights to brands like Peroni means AB InBev’s 45% share of the U.S. market won’t change.

Under the settlement, AB InBev will have to seek regulatory approval for future craft beer deals. The company has acquired more than a half dozen craft brewers. The craft segment is the fastest-growing in the industry.

AB InBev had faced sharp criticism of its acquisition from craft brewers and beer distributors when it appeared before a U.S. Senate subcommittee in December. Craft beer representatives argued AB InBev’s influence over beer distribution would make it harder for them to get beer on shelves.

The Justice Department’s merger clearance means AB InBev only needs Chinese regulatory approval before it can go forward with its acquisition of SABMiller. The deal also needs shareholder approval.

‘They’re giving them away’ — Trump condo prices continue to fall across the U.S.

The building has stunning Manhattan skyline views, its spa offers deep-tissue massages, and the fancy restaurant off the lobby serves up prime steaks. Best of all, many apartments at the Trump World Tower are selling at a deep discount — assuming the buyer doesn’t mind the name over the door.
