- A merger between Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) makes more sense now than ever, according to analysts following the sector.
- A-B faces tough questions on where to find growth and SABMiller has a toehold in some key emerging markets.
- "You could get the numbers to work," according to SABMiller CEO Alan Clark on the potential for the mega-deal. Meanwhile, execs with A-B have been mum on the subject.
- The two beer giants line up fairly well on the global regulatory front, although SABMiller would very likely have to shed its stake in MolsonCoors (TAP).
