Therefore, the 2017 Brazilian Business Awards have been created to celebrate the achievements made by those across all business sectors and in all sizes, to give them the recognition that they so truly deserve.

In October 2015, Anheuser-Busch InBev announced a successful all-cash bid to acquire South African multinational competitor SABMiller; the merger was concluded in October 2016. It was the world's largest brewer even before the acquisition of SABMiller and is considered one of the largest fast-moving consumer goods companies in the world. The annual sales for the company in 2019 were US$52.3 billion;[1] prior to the merger, ABInBev had realized US$45.5 billion in revenue in 2016. The company was expected to have a 28 percent market share of global volume beer sales in 2017, according to Euromonitor International.[9]

At the end of 2019, total liabilities amounted to US$95.5 billion. Net debt to normalized EBITDA decreased to 4.0. Goodwill reached US$128.114 billion, which compares with revenues of US$52.329 billion in 2019.[1] For this deleveraging, the dividend for 2018 in EUR was cut in half compared with 2017.[52]

AB InBev's brand portfolio includes highly popular beer and soft-drink brands. The company classified its brands as Global Brands, International Brands, and Local Champions. The following are some of the more popular 200 brands for AB InBev prior to the merger with SABMiller on 10 October 2016.[59] The combined AB InBev/SAB Miller entity has approximately 400 beer brands as of January 2017.[9][60]

In May 2017, the company was criticized for reportedly engaging in anti-competitive practices after purchasing the entire supply of South African hops from SAB Hop Farms, as part of the SABMiller purchase, and making the hops unavailable to any US craft brewers.[70] Similar anti-competitive claims were also made in association with the company's purchase of Roseville, Minnesota-based Northern Brewer, the biggest homebrew-supply chain in the country, through AB Inbev's venture arm ZX Ventures.[70]

In July 2017, the company terminated its contract with "Casa Mia" pizzeria in Munich after the politician Ernst Dill vainly tried to persuade the owner to ban Pegida supporters amongst his guests.

This book constitutes revised selected papers from the 8th Brazilian Workshop on Agile Methods, WBMA 2017, held in Belém, Brazil, in September 2017. The 10 full and 2 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 19 submissions.

Information released online from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017. Note: Content in this archive site is not updated, and links may not function. External links to other Internet sites should not be construed as an endorsement of the views contained therein.

The studies of Porta, Lopez-de-Silanes, Shleifer and Vishny (1998) and Lee and Ng (2006) analyzed the effects of corruption on the market value of firms and suggested that high levels of corruption in the public sector have significant influence on the share price of publicly traded companies. Taruel (2017) showed that news involving corruptive practices affected the Brazilian exchange market (BM&FBovespa) in terms of volatility.

A recent Brazilian case of corruption involved the company JBS - the global leader in animal protein processing - and politicians. On the 17th of May of 2017 the Brazilian newspaper O Globo disclosed details about the plea bargain testimony of Joesley and Wesley Batista, respectively the chairman and chief executive of the meat company JBS, that provided evidence against prominent politicians involved in corruption and details of illegal campaign contributions to congressmen, senators and governors. Mr. Batista also recorded a conversation that he had with the president of Brazil - Michel Temer - that indicates involvement of the president in corruption acts (The New York Times, 2017).

The methodology adopted was the event study and for that, the period from November 12th, 2016 to May 22nd, 2017 was analyzed, the event window considered 11 days (-5 to +5). The sample consisted of 29 Brazilian companies that are traded in the New York Stock Exchange. The data were collected in Economatica database in a daily frequency.

As it is expected in an efficient market, there is a rapid adjustment of prices after the announcement of a fact, if the reaction is slow, investors can get extraordinary negative or positive returns by buying or selling their stocks on the date of the disclosure. However, Carvalho, Malaquias and Ribeiro (2009) argue about the possibility of using event studies to verify the existence of abnormal returns around the date of an announcement of a relevant fact. According to the authors, abnormal return in days prior to the date of the announcement may characterize information leakage, while abnormal return in days after the date of the event characterize delayed market reaction to the announcement. Both situations can be interpreted as market inefficiency, once in the semi-strong form of efficient market, an abnormal return is expected only on the date of the announcement.

Gabrovšek, Aleksovski, Mozetič and Grčar (2017) provided an in-depth analysis of Twitter volume and sentiment about companies in the Dow Jones Index focusing on Earnings Announcements, the authors show that on the day of the announcement the collective opinion of the users reflect the stock movement and there was abnormal high return of 2-4%.

J&F Investimentos Group is present in over 30 countries and its portfolio is comprised of companies in the areas of animal proteins processing, footwear and clothing, dairy products, personal care and cleaning products, pulp production mill, agribusiness and retail banking sector and energy generation and distribution. In 2016 it had revenues of 170 billion reais ($49 billion), 240 thousand employees worldwide, more than 220 production facilities and the company exported products for 150 countries (JBS Investimentos, 2017).

According to The New York Times (2017), on May 17th the Brazilian newspaper O Globo reported that the brothers Joesley and Wesley Batista, respectively the chairman and chief executive of the meat company JBS, signed plea bargains agreeing to provide evidence against prominent politicians involved in corruption and details of illegal campaign contributions to congressmen, senators and governors.

As a result of the plea bargain the Federal Police filmed the receipt of money and arrested politicians and people involved in the accusation. The Federal Supreme Court started an investigation against the President Michel Temer and removed two congressmen from office (Folha de São Paulo, 2017).

The present study uses event study methodology to verify the impact of the testimony of Mr. Joesley Batista against Brazilian politicians involved in corruption cases on stocks prices of Brazilian companies that operate in the American stock market by issuing ADRs.

The event studied was disclosed on the 17th of May of 2017 by the Brazilian newspaper O Globo some days after the testimony of Mr. Batista - which was part of plea bargain - that provided evidence against prominent politicians involved in corruption and details of illegal campaign contributions to congressmen, senators and governors. Mr. Batista also recorded a conversation with the president of Brazil Michel Temer that indicates his involvement in corruption acts.

The results are in agreement with the studies of Camargo and Barbosa (2015); Lewis, et (2015) and Gabrovšek, et al (2017), that showed that the stock market responds to announcements in the same way that the political crisis in Brazil affects the foreign investor's view about Brazilian companies.

Analyzing Table 5, it can be noted that for the sample selected there is no change in stock price or even significance, which shows that only Brazilian companies were affected by the event. Figure 3 (using the same scale as Figure 1) shows the change in the value of American stocks. Note that there is no fluctuation in the value over the analyzed period. 041b061a72
