Azar & Associates, P.C. announces that it is investigating a lawsuit filed against Anheuser-Busch Inbev SA/NV (“Anheuser-Busch”) on behalf of Anheuser-Busch shareholders (NYSE ticker: BUD) alleging that Anheuser-Busch and certain of its officers violated the federal securities laws.

The lawsuit alleges that unbeknownst to investors, Anheuser-Busch and its executives misled them about the Company’s finances, including the sustainability of Anheuser-Busch’s dividends. The lawsuit also alleges that Anheuser-Busch issued a steady stream of materially false and misleading reassurances about Anheuser-Busch’s deleveraging efforts, cost cutting measures, EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) growth, the sufficiency of its liquidity and its debt maturity profile during the time period of March 1, 2018 to October 24, 2018. Further, the lawsuit alleges that when the truth was disclosed to investors on October 25, 2018, the price of Anheuser-Busch ADS declined approximately 9.5%, from $82.25 per ADS to $74.54 per ADS, erasing approximately $15 billion of the Company’s market capitalization and shareholder value. BUD shareholders lost billions of dollars.
