The world's largest deal between the brewers had just reached $ 104 billion.
Owner of TM «Budweiser» Anheuser-Busch InBev raised its takeover bid for its rival, the brewing company SABMiller, to $ 66.85 per share, valuing the company at about $ 103.5 billion.
AB InBev, the world's largest brewer, has made a new proposal after the Early Offer at $ 64.77 per share was rejected on Friday.
SABMiller, the second largest brewer in the world, is listed on the London Stock Exchange and in accordance with the laws of the UK acquisitions, both sides have until Wednesday to reach an agreement on the deal.Negotiations on absorption were launched in mid-September.
SABMiller, which produces, including beer Peroni, Grolsch and Fosters, played baseball with AB InBev, has rejected several proposals for takeover.
The company holds a dominant position in emerging markets such as Africa and India, while the main market of AB InBev, the United States, shows stagnation of sales. SABMiller has all the cards, and repeatedly stated that the offer undervalues the company AB InBev.
SABMiller is under pressure from its largest shareholder, Altria, who wants to make a deal, but to make a deal, but with the promise of a program to reduce costs by $ 1 billion. That it would be a good option for investors.
In a note to clients on Friday, HSBC said that it looks as if SABMiller uses the same tactics as Anheuser-Busch used in 2008 for the merger with InBev, to raise the price.
Analyst Carlos Labem and his team say:
Obviously, this story is repeated almost identically, and, ultimately, successful tactics used by management Anheuser-Busch, to get a higher price from InBev compared with USD65 to USD70 in 2008.
Management of Anheuser-Busch filed similar claims that "InBev" has been underestimated, given its world-class brands, as well as announcing the acceleration of programs to improve the efficiency of the brewery Blue Ocean, reducing the cost of the blue print, which eventually will get to InBev.
