Anheuser-Busch Inbev Sa/Nv (NYSE:BUD)
Investors Affected: March 1, 2018 – October 24, 2018
A class action has commenced on behalf of certain shareholders in Anheuser-Busch Inbev Sa/Nv. According to the filed complaint, Defendants issued a steady stream of materially false and misleading reassurances about Anheuser Busch’s deleveraging efforts, cost cutting measures, EBITDA growth, the sufficiency of its liquidity and its debt maturity profile during the Class Period. These positive statements by Defendants created a false impression and materially misled investors about the Company’s finances, including the sustainability of Anheuser-Busch’s dividends. Once Defendants chose to speak about Anheuser-Busch’s finances, they had a duty to speak completely and truthfully, including speaking about those factors that were then having a material adverse effect on the Company’s deleveraging efforts.
