The world's biggest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev, urged shareholders at rival beer giant SABMiller on Thursday to go against their board and accept a new takeover offer, valued at 68 billion pounds ($103-billion, 92-billion-euro).
"If shareholders agree that we should be in proper discussions, they should voice their views and should not allow the Board of SABMiller to frustrate this process and let this opportunity slip away," Belgium-based AB InBev said in a statement.
