The much anticipated bid from InBev for the St. Louis brewery came through Wednesday at $65 a share. The A-B board says it will be considering the proposal carefully.
In a statement Wednesday, A-B said: "The board will review the merits of the proposal consistent with its fiduciary duties and in consultation with its financial and legal advisers. The board will pursue the course of action that is in the best interests of Anheuser-Busch's stockholders." The board is expected to make its decision regarding the deal in "due course," it said.
