Earnings came in at $1.06 a share, three cents below analysts' estimates. The brewer posted revenue of $10.81 billion, which was in-line with predictions.

AB InBev recently raised its offer to $104.21 billion. Bloomberg also reported Friday that China's Ministry of Commerce gave the 'Megabew' merger its last major regulatory approval after SABMiller agreed to sell its 49 percent stake in China's top-selling beer, Snow.
