AB InBev Sees U.S. Improvement

Anheuser-Busch InBev NV, the beermaker seeking control of Mexico’s Grupo Modelo SAB, anticipates improved profitability in the U.S. after growing share in the country for the first time since 2009. The brewer feels “much better about the U.S. trends” after three years of “very soft markets” there, Chief Financial Officer Felipe Dutra said today on a conference call. (Bloomberg)
