UK court says SABMiller shareholders can be split into two classes

Photo illustration of beer flowing from a bottle of Stella Artois into a glassBy Martinne Geller LONDON (Reuters) - SABMiller shareholders can be treated as two separate groups when they vote on the brewer's 79 billion pound takeover by Anheuser Busch InBev, a court in London ruled on Tuesday, granting a request from SAB aimed at making the vote as fair as possible.
