The Competition Commission received notice in December 2015 of the proposed global merger between beer companies SABMiller and AB InBev.

After engagements between the Minister of Economic Development and AB InBev, an Agreement was concluded in April 2016. The Agreement addresses the South African government’s public interest concerns about the effect of the merger in South Africa, where South African Breweries, a subsidiary of SABMiller, dominates the beer market.

Key parts of the Agreement are provided within this document.
