Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) - Get Report is considering a plan to sell assets in an effort to ease its debt load after the brewer called off an Asia public offering, sources told the Wall Street Journal.
The beer maker is exploring selling off its South Korean, Australian and Central American units in an effort to raise at least $10 billion, the Journal reported. The company's debt load sits at about $100 billion.
The company reportedly already has a potential buyer: private-equity firm KKR, (KKR) - Get Report which approached AB InBev in May about acquiring some of its Asian assets. KKR previously bought the Korean business and sold it back to AB InBev for $5.8 billion in 2014, the paper reported.
Meanwhile, sources told the Journal that Japanese brewer Asahi Group (ASBRF) in May expressed interest in purchasing AB InBev's Australian business.
Another option: The Journal reported that AB InBev could look to cut its dividend to reduce its debt. The company halved its quarterly payout last year. AB InBev pays about $4 billion in annual dividends.
