 Disclosure Made According to the Requirements of the Law of 2 May 2007

The enclosed information constitutes regulated information as defined in the Belgian Royal Decree of 14 November 2007 regarding the duties of issuers of
financial instruments which have been admitted for trading on a regulated market.


Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (Euronext: ABI) (NYSE: BUD) (MEXBOL: ANB) (JSE: ANH) (“AB InBev”) discloses the
notification of significant shareholdings that it has received in accordance with the Belgian Law of 2 May 2007 on
the disclosure of significant shareholdings in listed companies.

According to its obligation under article 14 of the Belgian Law of 2 May 2007 on the disclosure of significant shareholdings
in listed companies, AB InBev publishes the content of the notification that it has received.

The percentage of voting rights held in aggregate by AB InBev and the entities and persons acting in concert with it have
crossed downwards the threshold of 45%. Such threshold crossing has not been triggered by a decrease of the holding of
the voting rights held by AB InBev’s reference shareholder group, which has increased in aggregate by 0.18% since the
previous transparency notification. The drop below the 45% threshold was prompted by the disposal of treasury shares by
AB InBev in connection with existing share delivery obligations.
