Altria Group becomes significant shareholder in Anheuser-Busch InBev

On October 10, 2016, Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (BUD) completed its business combination with SABMiller plc (SBMRY). As previously announced, the combined group will retain the name Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV. In connection with the closing, Altria Group, Inc. (MO) received 185,115,417 restricted shares of AB InBev, representing a 9.6% economic and voting interest in AB InBev, and approximately $5.3 billion in pre-tax cash, as discussed below. These results reflect the proration effect of elections for the partial share alternative. Further, Marty Barrington, Altria's Chairman, CEO and President, and Billy Gifford, Altria's CFO, have been appointed to AB InBev's Board of Directors. "We are very pleased to see the successful completion of this transaction between these two great companies. The transaction allows Altria to continue its participation in the global brewing profit pool as a significant shareholder in AB InBev, and we are excited about the prospects for the long-term value of our investment," said Marty Barrington. In addition to the restricted shares, Altria is receiving a total of approximately $5.3 billion in pre-tax cash. The cash results from the terms of the PSA and the proceeds from the currency derivatives that Altria entered into to hedge its British pound exposure.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. EP Energy (EPE) downgraded to Underperform and Underweight at BofA/Merrill and Capital One, respectively, with analysts saying EP Energy's planned sale of Haynesville for $420mm is not a surprise and balance sheet headwinds remain. BofA/Merrill continues to see leverage as a headwind and does not see how the company can live within its cash flow while production declines in 2016. 2. Amazon.com (AMZN) downgraded to Outperform at Raymond James by analyst Aaron Kessler, who expects Amazon's pace of margin expansion to slow and he sees increased competition to its Web Services unit from Google's (GOOG, GOOGL) Cloud Platform. 3. Copa Holdings (CPA) downgraded to Sell at Evercore ISI by analyst Duane Pfennigwerth, who cited recent shares strength. 4. Infinity Pharmaceuticals (INFI) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Wedbush. 5. SABMiller (SBMRY) downgraded to Underperform at CLSA.

SABMiller deal could be blocked, terms may be sweetened says Stifel
Stifel believes that a minority SABMiller (SBMRY) shareholders could "effectively block" the company's proposed acquisition by AB InBev (BUD). The firm thinks that the deal's small premium and "the illiquidity" of AB's stock that would be transferred in the alternative, partial stock offering could motivate SABMiller's shareholders to block the deal. The firm thinks that AB InBev could sweeten the terms of the deal.

AB InBev's goal may be to acquire Coca-Cola, says HSBC
HSBC analyst Anthony Bucalo says SABMiller's (SBMRY) merger with AB InBev (BUD), which its shareholders just approved, will impact "nearly every major company across global beverages," especially Heinenken (HINKY). The combined company "represents a strong vehicle for another transaction" if InBev management chooses to do so, Bucalo tells investors in a research note dated yesterday. The analyst believes AB InBev's ultimate goal is the possible acquisition of The Coca-Cola Company (KO). The entire Coca-Cola bottling system, especially for Mexican giant FEMSA (FMX), is impacted by SABMiller joining with AB InBev, Bucalo contends.
