InBev is considering selling a Korean brewery and other assets in Germany in a bid to fund its loan for its $52bn (£30.49) takeover of Anheuser Busch, it has been claimed. InBev has sceured a $45bn debt package in order to fund its acquisition of the US-based Budweiser brewer. The package includes a $7bn loan which, according to reports today, it intends to pay off with the disposal of certain assets. According to a report in the Financial Times, InBev has not yet drawn on that loan, and isfocused on closing the deal and syndicating out its debt. But InBev is also supposed to be reviewing sale prospects for its operations in Korea and Germany, as well as Anheuser’s entertainment division, its packaging operations, and its 27% in Chinese brewer Tsingtao, these people said. Of those businesses, the only one InBev has made a concrete decision to sell thus far is Anheuser’s entertainment unit, which operates SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and other US theme parks. A sale of Oriental Brewery to a Korean buyer, or to a partnership between Japan’s Kirin or Asahi and a Korean buyer, may be one of InBev’s better options, according to the report in the Financial Times. InBev may also look to Germany, where it has built a presence since 2001 through acquisitions. Beck’s, the top German beer in the world, is a jewel in the company’s crown. But the German beer market is mature and declining, and InBev is considering whether to mark certain brands or breweries there for sale. InBev sees significant value in Anheuser’s Harbin Brewery, people close to the company say, but a disposal of Anheuser’s coveted minority stake in Tsingtao may be simpler and easier to stomach.
