Notice of Currency Exchange Rate
Dividend No. 24

Shareholders of AB InBev are referred to the announcement published on the Stock Exchange News Service of
the JSE (“SENS”) on Thursday, 1 March 2018 and are advised that at the Annual General Meeting of the Company
held on Wednesday, 25 April 2018, the gross final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2017 proposed by
the board of directors of AB InBev, was approved. Therefore a gross amount of €2.00 per ordinary AB InBev
share will be payable as the final dividend per share (the “Dividend”). When combined with the interim dividend
of €1.60 per share paid in November 2017, the total dividend for FY17 amounts to €3.60 per share.

The Company confirms that the SA Rand exchange rate for the Dividend will be ZAR 14.97800: €1.00 as
calculated at the close of business on Friday, 27 April 2018.

The gross amount of the Dividend will be subject to a Belgian Withholding Tax of 30% (equalling 898.68000
South African cents per ordinary share) which will be withheld from the gross Dividend paid to shareholders.
After the Belgian Withholding Tax has been withheld, the net Dividend will be 2096.92000 SA cents per ordinary
share. This withholding tax is reduced to 15% in terms of the double tax treaty in force between Belgium and
South Africa. A rebate of the additional Belgian Withholding Tax of 15% which is withheld in Belgium must be
claimed by South African shareholders in accordance with the relevant reimbursement process noted in the
announcement published on SENS on Thursday, 1 March 2018.

The Dividend may also be subject to SA Dividends Tax at the rate of 20%, unless a shareholder qualifies for an
exemption. Any shareholder that receives a Dividend which is subject to SA Dividends Tax (i.e. where no
exemption is available) will qualify for a 15% rebate from SA dividends tax, being the Belgian withholding tax of
15%. The ultimate result is that the Dividend will be subject to a reduced Belgian Withholding Tax rate of 15%
and subject to SA Dividends Tax at a rate of 5% (unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption from dividends
tax, in which case only Belgian withholding tax of 15% will be applicable).

                                                                                                 ZAR cents
