4 Merger and Acquisition Stock Stories for Mid-Week

Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD): Closing price $88.99

The world’s largest brewer is in discussions with the Justice Department in regards to concessions it could make that might win an okay for its acquisition of the half of Grupo Modelo that it doesn’t already own, according to inside sources, who added that the negotiations surround a long-term supply and pricing accord between the merged firm and Crown Imports, which imports brands including Modelo’s Corona into the United States. However, the discussions are not much about the divestiture of production assets.
