ST. LOUIS Anheuser-Busch Cos. has asked a St. Louis federal judge to block a proposed takeover by Belgian brewer InBev NV.
InBev s proposed $46.3 billion acquisition was rejected last month by Anheuser. The U.S. brewer said in court papers that InBev launched its hostile takeover bid based on false or misleading information.
Anheuser-Busch alleged that InBev made numerous false and misleading statements about how it would finance an acquisition and how it would run Anheuser-Busch.
