Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data
Included as Exhibit 99 to this Form 10-K/A are the consolidated financial statements and related footnotes (collectively, “the financial statements”) of the company’s noncontrolled affiliate, Grupo Modelo, S.A.B. de C.V. Anheuser-Busch is required to include the Modelo financial statements in Form 10-K/A due to Modelo meeting certain tests of significance under SEC Rule S-X 3-09.
The financial statements are prepared by Grupo Modelo in accordance with Mexican generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The management of Grupo Modelo is solely responsible for the form and content of the Modelo financial statements. Anheuser-Busch has no responsibility for the form or content of the Modelo financial statements since Anheuser-Busch does not control Modelo and is not involved in the management of Modelo. The accounting and reporting requirements of the SEC and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 do not apply to the Modelo financial statements or to Modelo’s system of internal accounting controls and control over financial reporting.
See Note 18 of the audited Modelo financial statements for a discussion of the principal differences between Mexican GAAP and U.S. GAAP.
