InBev is believed to be considering selling Anheuser Busch’s theme park and beer can divisions in order to raise $4.6bn (£2.3bn) to help pay for the takeover. The company could generate $2.9bn from the disposal of the theme parks and $1.7bn from the sale of divisions that recycle and make beer cans and bottles, according to analysts. The sale would allow Anheuser to exit from peripheral operations and generate cash for InBev to pay off the debt for the $52bn takeover of the US brewer. Sachin Shah, a merger analyst at ICAP Securities in the US, said: “InBev is looking to be in the beer business and not necessarily in the family entertainment business. One thing InBev has stated throughout this process is a desire to add working dollars back.” Gwendoline Ornigg, a spokesperson for InBev, said: “InBev's decision will be based on a diligent review of the strategic and financial consequences of any divestment, with the goal of creating the best opportunities and value for all constituents.” Anheuser owns 10 theme parks across the US, including Busch Gardens and Seaworld, which are believed to have generated $1.3bn in revenue last year. The company has planned to expand the parks abroad, with four set to open in Dubai. The group also owns Busch Entertainment and the packaging division consists of Metal Container Corporation, Eagle Packaging and Longhorn Glass.
