In 2010, SAB (now SABMiller, part of AB InBev) created a BBBEE Programme that would redress historical imbalances, drive socioeconomic progress and benefit stakeholder groups who had played a role in SAB’s success. They needed a partner who could assist with the unwind of this massive BEE programme.
The RMB solution
RMB partnered with SAB as advise on the unwind of its historic broad-based BEE transaction, SAB Zenzele, resulting in 40,000 SAB employees, retailers and the SAB Foundation receiving AB InBev shares or cash totalling R8.6-bn.
In addition, RMB, acting as joint global co-ordinator and bookrunner, concluded a R7.5-bn placement of AB InBev shares to settle the cash payouts. .
RMB is proud to be associated with SAB on this truly broad-based programme, tangibly benefitting their employees, stakeholders and communities across South Africa.
