An offer letter for Anheuser-Busch (BUD) from InBev could be on CEO Augustus Busch IV’s desk as early as this week.
InBev has reportedly been speaking with a cadre of investment banks, including JP Morgan, BNP Paribas and Merrill Lynch, in order to line up $50 billion of financing. Once the financing is secured, a formal takeover bid of Anheuser-Busch (BUD) could be launched.
No word yet on which politician will make this potential foreign takeover their signature issue. Anyone have a guess?
