"Anheuser-Busch InBev said it would pay for the remaining stake Grupo Modelo that it did not already own through cash reserves and a new $14 billion credit facility. ...The companies said the deal would lead to around $600 million of annual cost savings."

The City of Arnold will own the expansion building and A-B will lease it back, thereby avoiding paying the real estate taxes....
