Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway will get almost $2.5 billion in cash as part of InBev's now friendly $50 billion deal to acquire Anheuser-Busch.
Berkshire is the St. Louis brewer's second largest shareholder, with 35,563,200 shares (as of its most recent SEC filing for March 31.)
At the sweetened price of $70 in cash each, Belgium's InBev will be paying Berkshire $2,489,424,000 for its stake. That's about $178 million more than if Anheuser-Busch had accepted InBev's initial offer of $65 a share.
Current Anheuser-Busch price:
Publicly, Buffett has been very quiet about InBev's courtship of Anheuser, perhaps because the prospect of foreign ownership for such an "American" brand hasn't been very popular around St. Louis.
