According to Financial Times a financing package of $50 billion had already been provisionally arranged through JPMorgan and Santander.


When the two companies merge, the new
company's value were 100 billion dollars, with excellent positions
on west and east markets.

Shares of the largest U.S. brewer,
Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc., maker of such iconic brands as
Budweiser and Bud Light, shot up more than 7% on the new of a
proposed merge.

Analysts are already expecting
opposition from Anheuser’s fiercely independent President and Chief
Executive Officer August Busch IV. Management opposition isn’t the
only problem that could derail this merger, the cultures are vastly
different. Anheuser-Busch was founded by a family that has deep beer
roots and a focus on building brands and treating its employees well.
Inbev is a global amalgamation of acquisitions that is intently
focused on reducing costs while incentivizing employees to drive
higher profits."
