Notice of Currency Exchange Rate
Dividend No. 27
Shareholders of AB InBev are referred to the announcement published on the Stock Exchange News Service of the JSE
(“SENS”) on Friday, 25 October 2019 wherein it was announced that the board of directors of AB InBev approved an
interim dividend of €0.80 per ordinary share for the fiscal year 2019 (the “Dividend”).
The exchange rate applicable for the conversion of Euro to SA Rand for the Dividend will be €1.00 to ZAR16.3675121,
as calculated at the close of business on Monday, 18 November 2019. Accordingly, the gross amount of the Dividend
is 1309.40097 SA cents per share and will be subject to a Belgian Withholding Tax of 30% (equalling 392.82029 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 916.58068 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 Friday, 25 October 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).
