Anheuser-Busch InBev’s (NYSE:BUD) $19 billion acquisition of Mexican brewer Grupo Modelo has caused regulators to think twice about it as many people object to the move. The objectors have been asked to make their closing arguments. This may mean that regulators still have reservations about the deal and may end up requiring Anheuser-Busch InBev to sever links with some of their wholly owned beer distributors in the United States.

Will Anheuser-Busch InBev’s shareholders decrease their holdings? They reported owning a total of 9.595 million shares on 12/31/2012. The shares closed at $87.41 on 12/31/2012.
