AB InBev Finalises Deal With Coca-Cola Beverages Africa

Drinks company Anheuser-Busch InBev has announced that it completed the transition of its 54.5% equity stake in Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA).

In December, it was announced that the Coca-Cola Company had entered into a deal to buy AB InBev's stake in CCBA for $3.15 billion.

In addition, the companies are working towards finalising an agreement for Coca-Cola to buy AB InBev’s interest in bottling operations in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, El Salvador and Honduras.

Following the completion of the deal, Coca-Cola's African unit will remain subject to agreements reached with the South African government and the South African Competition Authorities.

CCBA is the largest Coca-Cola bottler in Africa, and includes operations in South Africa, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Ghana, Mayotte and Comoros.
