The challenge

In 2010, SAB (now SABMiller, part of AB InBev) created a BB-BEE 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 advisor 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 billion.

In addition, RMB, acting as joint global coordinator and bookrunner, concluded a R7.5 billion placement of AB InBev shares to settle the cash payouts. .

Proven results

RMB is proud to be associated with SAB on this truly broad-based programme, tangibly benefitting their employees, stakeholders and communities across South Africa.

The unwind of SAB Zenzele has resulted in 40,000 SAB employees, retailers and the SAB Foundation benefitting with either AB InBev shares or cash totalling R8.6 billion.

By partnering with RMB, SABMiller was able to realise its promise to its employees and stakeholders.
