SABMiller Plc was one of the world’s leading brewers with more than 200 beer brands and some 70,000 employees in over 75 countries. It also had growing businesses in soft drinks and was one of the world’s largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products.
SABMiller plc. was a multinational brewing and beverage company headquartered in Woking, England on the outskirts of London until 10 October 2016 when it was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev.
In October 2015, Anheuser-Busch InBev announced a successful all-cash bid to acquire multinational competitor SABMiller for £69 billion (US $107 billion). Shareholders for both companies approved the merger on 28 September 2016. The deal closed on 10 October 2016.
SABMiller ceased trading on global stock markets. The company subsequently sold the former SABMiller’s interest in MillerCoors to Molson Coors, sold many of the former SABMiller’s European brands to Asahi Breweries and sold much of its Coca-Cola bottling and distribution interests to the Coca-Cola Company.
