The InBev takeover of Anheuser-Busch resulted in layoffs and payment delays to suppliers. The Belgium based company’s acquisition of Anheuser-Busch resulted in the lay off of 1,400 salaried employees in December 2008. In addition, InBev has terminated previous supplier agreements. The company also issued a statement to suppliers that they would have to agree to a 120 day payment delay if they wanted to continue to do business with InBev Anheuser-Busch. These decisions sparked anger and controversy with suppliers who previously enjoyed working with Anheuser-Busch. In response, Belgium will investigate if InBev abused its dominant corporate position unfairly.
