Notice of Currency Exchange Rate Dividend No. 26

AB InBev shareholders are referred to the announcement published on the Stock Exchange News Service of the
Johannesburg Stock Exchange (“JSE”) (“SENS”) on Thursday, 28 February 2019 and are advised that at the Annual
General Meeting of AB InBev shareholders held on Wednesday, 24 April 2019, the gross total dividend for the year
ended 31 December 2018 proposed by the board of directors of AB InBev, was approved.

Taking into account the gross interim dividend of €0.80 per share paid in November 2018, a gross amount of
€1.00 per share will therefore be payable as the final dividend (“the Dividend”).

The exchange rate applicable for the conversion of Euro to SA Rand for the Dividend will be €1.00 to
ZAR16.22750, as calculated at the close of business on Friday, 3 May 2019. Accordingly, the gross amount of
the Dividend is 1622.75000 SA cents per share and will be subject to a Belgian Withholding Tax of 30%
(equalling 486.82500 SA cents per share) which will be withheld from the gross Dividend paid to
shareholders.

After the Belgian Withholding Tax has been withheld, the net Dividend will be 1135.92500 SA cents per
share. This withholding tax is reduced to 15% in terms of the double tax treaty in force between Belgium and
South Africa. A rebate of the additional Belgian Withholding Tax of 15% which is withheld in Belgium must
be claimed by SA shareholders in accordance with the relevant reimbursement process noted in the
announcement published on SENS on Thursday, 28 February 2019.

The Dividend may also be subject to SA Dividends Tax at the rate of 20%, unless a shareholder qualifies for
an exemption. Any shareholder that receives a Dividend which is subject to SA Dividends Tax (i.e. where no
exemption is available) will qualify for a 15% rebate from SA Dividends Tax, being the Belgian Withholding
Tax of 15%.

The ultimate result is that the Dividend will be subject to a reduced Belgian Withholding Tax rate of 15% and
subject to SA Dividends Tax at a rate of 5% (unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption from SA
Dividends Tax, in which case only Belgian Withholding Tax of 15% will be applicable).
