business news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports this morning that Anheuser-Busch InBev NV has completed its $103 billion takeover of SABMiller, after more than 95 percent of the latter company's investors approved the deal, creating a company that "will generate revenue of about $55 billion and account for about one in every three beers sold worldwide."

According to the story, "AB InBev will dominate the combined entity, whose brands will include Stella Artois, Beck’s and Foster’s lager. The Budweiser maker will keep its name, ditching that of SABMiller, and only one SABMiller executive will be on the new company’s senior leadership team."
