a-b inbev modelo corona merger

Here is more context after today’s announced deal in which A-B InBev will buy the remaining stake in Grupo Modelo for $20.1 billion. The deal is the second-largest in beer industry history only to InBev’s acquisition of Anheuser-Busch in 2008 for $52 billion.

A-B InBev, once approved, would take the reigns of an additional thirteen brands including Corona, “the #1 Mexican beer sold in the world,” Modelo Especial, Victoria, Pacifico and Negra Modelo. Plato Logic reports that Grupo Modelo sold nearly 32 million hectoliters of Corona in 2010, giving A-B InBev its eighth out of the world’s fifteen top-selling beer brands.

Below is the data from UK-based research firm, Plato Logic, for 2010 (2011 data unavailable).

  1. Thanks. I also did a “AB-InBev” instead of “A-B InBev.” Comments are turning out to be a great instaeditor service.
