Revenue for the interim period went up 4.4% to USD27.1 billion (USD20.0 billion) and gross profit also rose by 4.4% to USD16.4 billion (USD12.2 billion). Profit attributable to equity holders shot up to USD2.9 billion (USD285 million). In addition, headline earnings per share jumped to USD149cps (USD17cps).



2017 Company Outlook

* Top-line: While recognizing the increased volatility in some of our key markets, we expect to accelerate total revenue growth in FY17, driven by the solid growth of our global brands and strong commercial plans, including revenue management initiatives.

* Cost of Sales: We expect CoS per hl to increase by low single digits on a constant geographic basis, despite unfavorable foreign exchange transactional impacts, and growth in our premium brands.

* Selling, General and Administrative Expenses: We expect SG-A to remain broadly flat, as we will continue to find savings in overhead to invest behind our brands.

* Synergies: We updated our 2.45 billion USD synergy and cost savings expectation to 2.8 billion USD during our FY16 results announcement, with synergies being calculated on a constant currency basis as of August 2016.

* Net Finance Costs: We expect the average rate of interest on net debt in FY17 to be in the range of 3.5% to 4.0%. Net pension interest expenses and accretion expenses are expected to be approximately 30 and 150 million USD per quarter, respectively. Other financial results will continue to be impacted by any gains and losses related to the hedging of our share-based payment programs.

* Effective Tax Rate: We are amending our FY17 guidance from the range of 24% to 26% to the range of 22% to 24%, excluding any future gains and losses relating to the hedging of our share based programs This guidance continues to include the impact of the change in country mix following the combination with SAB and the expected tax consequences of the funding of the combination.

* Net Capital Expenditure: We expect net capital expenditure of approximately 3.7 billion USD in FY17.

* Debt: Approximately one third of AB InBev?s gross debt is denominated in currencies other than the US dollar, principally the Euro. Our optimal capital structure remains a net debt to EBITDA ratio of around 2x.

* Dividends: We continue to expect dividends to be a growing flow over time, although growth is expected to be modest given the importance of deleveraging.

(Official Notice)
Shareholders are referred to the announcement issued on 28 October 2016 wherein it was announced that the AB InBev board has approved an interim dividend of EUR1.60 per share for the fiscal year 2016.



Dividend currency exchange rate

The dividends payable to shareholders whose shares are held through Central Securities Depository Participants (?CSDPs?) and brokers and are traded on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (?JSE?) are payable in South African Rand. The applicable currency exchange rate is set out below.



Gross Dividend per ordinary share (Euro) - EUR/ZAR Exchange rate - Gross Dividend per ordinary share (South African cents)

* EUR1.60 - 15.27850 - 2444.56000



Additional information required by the JSE Listings Requirements

The payment of the dividend will be subject to South African dividends tax (unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption) at the rate of 15%. Any shareholder who receives a dividend which is subject to South African dividends tax (i.e. where no exemption is available) will qualify for a full rebate. The net result is that any dividend will ultimately only be subject to Belgian withholding tax at the rate of 27% (as above), and not subject to South African dividends tax. The Belgian withholding tax, which exceeds the maximum rate of 15% in terms of the double tax treaty note above, may be claimed in accordance with the relevant reimbursement process.



The gross dividend per ordinary share is 2444.56000 SA cents. Belgian withholding tax at the rate of 27% (equaling 660.03120 SA cents per ordinary share) will be withheld from the gross dividend paid to shareholders. After the Belgian withholding tax has been withheld, the net dividend paid will be 1784.52880 SA cents per ordinary share. At Friday, 28 October 2016, being the declaration date of the dividend, the Company had a total of 1,934,241,973 ordinary shares in issue (excluding treasury shares). The Company held 85,000,000 ordinary shares in treasury giving a total issued share capital of 2,019,241,973 ordinary shares.

AB InBev welcomed the statement from SABMiller plc (?SABMiller?) that its board intends to recommend the revised and final terms of the proposed combination announced by AB InBev on 26 July 2016.



AB InBev and SABMiller have worked very closely since November last year. The teams have made significant progress on the regulatory process around the world, the disposals in the US, China and Europe, as well as general integration planning and AB InBev?s bond financing program. AB InBev believes that the proposed combination represents a compelling opportunity for all SABMiller and AB InBev shareholders and continues to intend to recommend the combination to its shareholders.



Following previously announced clearances in the EU, South Africa, the US and China, all of the pre- conditions to the proposed combination have been satisfied. AB InBev has obtained approval in 23 jurisdictions. In the remaining jurisdictions where regulatory clearance is still pending, AB InBev will continue to engage proactively with the relevant authorities to address their concerns in order to obtain the necessary clearances as quickly as possible. The combination remains subject to certain other terms and conditions which are set out in the 11 November 2015 Announcement, including approval by the SABMiller and AB InBev shareholders.



AB InBev continues to focus on working closely with SABMiller to take the necessary steps in preparation for completing the combination as quickly as practicable and expects the transaction to complete in 2016. Another announcement will follow in due course with further details.

AB InBev welcomed the conditional approval of China?s Ministry of Commerce of the company?s proposed combination with SABMiller plc (?SABMiller?) (see http://english.mofcom.gov.cn/). The Ministry of Commerce?s approval is a significant milestone for the transaction. It remains our objective to close the transaction in 2016.



To achieve the Ministry of Commerce?s conditional approval and consistent with AB InBev?s approach to proactively addressing potential regulatory concerns, AB InBev agreed to sell SABMiller?s 49% stake in China Resources Snow Breweries Ltd. (?CR Snow?) to China Resources Beer (Holdings) Co. Ltd., which currently owns 51% of CR Snow. This divestment, which was previously announced between AB InBev and China Resources Beer (Holdings) Co. Ltd., is conditional on the successful closing of the combination of AB InBev with SABMiller.



Following previously announced clearances in the EU, South Africa and the United States, all of the pre- conditions to the proposed combination have now been satisfied. AB InBev continues to focus on taking the necessary steps in preparation for completing the combination as quickly as practicable. Another announcement will follow in due course with further details.



AB InBev has now obtained approval in 23 jurisdictions. Clearance decisions, with or without conditions, have now been obtained: in North America (US and Canada); Asia-Pacific (Australia, India, South Korea and China); in Africa (Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa); in Europe (the EU, Albania, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine); and in Latin America (Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Uruguay and Mexico).



In the remaining jurisdictions where regulatory clearance is still pending, AB InBev will continue to engage proactively with the relevant authorities to address their concerns in order to obtain the necessary clearances as quickly as possible.

AB InBev announced that it has entered into a consent decree with the United States Department of Justice (see https://www.justice.gov/atr/antitrust-case-filings-alpha), which clears the way for U.S. approval of its recommended combination with SABMiller plc (?SABMiller?). The company reaffirmed its expectation to close the global transaction in the second half of 2016.



As part of the consent decree and consistent with AB InBev?s approach to proactively address potential regulatory concerns, the company agreed to divest SABMiller?s U.S. interest in MillerCoors to Molson Coors. This divestiture, which was previously announced between AB InBev and Molson Coors, is conditioned on the successful closing of the combination of AB InBev with SABMiller.



The terms of the consent decree formalize prior commitments the company?s U.S. entity Anheuser-Busch (?AB?) has made including:

* AB will not acquire a distributor if doing so would result in more than 10% of its annual volume being distributed through wholly-owned distributorships in the U.S.

* AB will not terminate any wholesalers as a result of the combination with SABMiller.



In addition, certain aspects of the company?s U.S. sales programs and policies will be reviewed and modified to conform to the consent decree.



AB InBev has now obtained approval in 21 jurisdictions. Clearance decisions, with or without conditions, have now been obtained: in North America (US and Canada); Asia- Pacific (Australia, India, and South Korea); in Africa (Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa); in Europe (the EU, Albania, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine); and in Latin America (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay). Approval in Ecuador is subject to certain conditions. In the remaining jurisdictions where regulatory clearance is still pending, AB InBev will continue to engage proactively with the relevant authorities to address their concerns in order to obtain the necessary clearances as quickly as possible.

Anheuser-Busch InBev announces that the Competition Commission of South Africa has completed its investigation and recommended to the Competition Tribunal that the proposed combination with SABMiller plc (?SABMiller?) be approved with conditions.



The next and final stage of the merger consideration process in South Africa is for the Competition Tribunal to consider the proposed combination and make its clearance decision.



The recommendation from the Competition Commission of South Africa represents an important milestone in the process of securing regulatory approval in South Africa. Following on from the exchange control approval received from the South African Reserve Bank and the European Commission?s approval of the recommended combination with SABMiller last week, AB InBev believes it is well on track to secure the necessary regulatory approvals that will allow for closing in the second half of 2016.

AB InBev welcomed the European Commission?s approval of its recommended combination with SABMiller plc (?SABMiller?).



European Commission approval in Phase I of the EU merger review process is a significant milestone for the transaction and in keeping with AB InBev?s ambition to secure the necessary regulatory approvals that will allow for closing in the second half of 2016. To achieve European Commission approval at this stage and consistent with AB InBev?s approach to proactively addressing potential regulatory considerations, AB InBev proposed the sale of the Peroni, Grolsch and Meantime brands and their associated businesses in Italy, the Netherlands, UK and internationally (excluding certain US rights) to Asahi, whom the European Commission today approved as a suitable purchaser.



AB InBev also proposed the sale of SABMiller?s businesses in Central and Eastern Europe (Hungary, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland). The Central and Eastern European businesses can be sold to one or two purchasers and can be completed after closing of AB InBev?s proposed combination with SABMiller. These divestments are conditional on the successful closing of the recommended combination of AB InBev with SABMiller, and in the case of the Central and Eastern European businesses, on the European Commission?s approval of the purchaser(s) as suitable purchasers.



AB InBev has now obtained approval in 14 jurisdictions. Clearance decisions, with or without conditions, have now been obtained: in Asia-Pacific (Australia, India and South Korea); in Africa (Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Swaziland, and Zambia); in Europe (the EU, Albania and Ukraine); and in Latin America (Chile, Colombia and Mexico). Approval in Ecuador is subject to certain conditions. In the remaining jurisdictions where regulatory clearance is still pending, AB InBev will continue to engage proactively with the relevant authorities to obtain the necessary clearances as quickly as possible. The combination between AB InBev and SABMiller would create a truly global brewer, providing more choices for beer drinkers, including global and local brands, in new and existing markets around the world.

The transaction is conditional on the successful closing of the proposed business combination between AB InBev and SABMiller as announced on 11 November 2015, in addition to other customary closing conditions. Lazard acted as AB InBev?s financial advisor.

Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on Wednesday, 4 May 2016 relating to the dividend payable to shareholders whose shares are held through Central Securities Depository Participants (?CSDP?s?) and brokers traded on the JSE.



The gross dividend per ordinary share is 3356.60 SA cents. Belgian Withholding Tax at the rate of 27% (equalling 906.28200 SA cents per ordinary share) will be withheld from the gross dividend paid to shareholders. After the Belgian Withholding Tax has been withheld, the net dividend will be 2450.31800 SA cents per ordinary share.



The payment of the dividend will be subject to South African Dividends Tax (unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption) at the rate of 15%. Any shareholder which receives a dividend which is subject to South African Dividends Tax (i.e. where no exemption is available) will qualify for a full rebate of South African Dividends Tax. The net result is that any dividend will ultimately only be subject to Belgian Withholding Tax at the rate of 27% (as above). For the avoidance of doubt, the information provided above is only relevant to shareholders whose shares are held through CSDPs and brokers and are traded on the JSE.

AB InBev announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell SABMiller plc?s (?SABMiller?) 49% interest in China Resources Snow Breweries Ltd. (?CR Snow?) to China Resources Beer (Holdings) Co. Ltd. (?CRB?), which currently owns 51% of CR Snow. This announcement represents the next step in AB InBev?s continued commitment to proactively address regulatory considerations in its recommended acquisition of SABMiller.



The agreement values SABMiller?s 49% stake in CR Snow at 1.6 billion USD. The transaction has been approved by the Board of CRB as well as by its majority shareholder and thus no extraordinary general meeting will be required for approval. Upon completion of the transaction, CR Snow will become a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of CRB.



The agreement with CRB is conditional on the successful closing of the recommended acquisition of SABMiller by AB InBev as announced on 11 November 2015, which itself contains certain regulatory pre- conditions and conditions. In addition, this agreement is subject to any applicable regulatory approval in China, and AB InBev and CRB will work closely together through any such process.

In connection with this transaction, Lazard and Merrill Lynch International are acting as financial advisors to AB InBev. Sullivan - Cromwell, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP and Fangda are acting as legal counsel to AB InBev.

Business Day reported that Belgian brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev has a plan that will attend to the concerns key South African stakeholders about its acquisition of SABMiller. AB InBev CEO Carlos Brito hopes will help it fast-track the regulatory approvals the deal needs in SA. Mr Brito commented that the plan had not yet been submitted to the authorities, but the company had been in discussions to understand what was "top of mind" for South African stakeholders.



Mr Brito said although the deal was just a change of control in SA, where AB InBev has no operations and the two companies are not putting anything together, "legally SA is different in terms of merger deals - because you not only look at competition but also, more than usual, at public-interest issues". The JSE took just 21 days to approve AB InBev?s inward listing under a new fast-track process it introduced in 2014. But gaining approval from South African competition authorities could take a lot longer.
