Molson Coors to Acquire MillerCoors and Global Miller Brand Portfolio

November 11, 2015
Molson Coors Brewing Company announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV to purchase SABMiller plc’s 58% stake in MillerCoors, the joint venture formed in the United States by SABMiller and Molson Coors in 2008. Molson Coors currently owns 42% of MillerCoors. Under the agreement, Molson Coors will also acquire full ownership of the Miller brand portfolio outside of the U.S. and retain the rights to all of the brands currently in the MillerCoors portfolio for the US market, including Redd’s and import brands such as Peroni and Pilsner Urquell. The transaction is valued at $12.0 billion USD, and is conditioned upon the closing of AB InBev’s acquisition of SABMiller, which is expected in the second half of 2016.
