US challenges deal to merge Budweiser and Corona
By pricing aggressively, Modelo _ through its importer, Crown Imports _ puts pressure on ABI to maintain or lower prices.
"Today, Modelo aggressively competes head-to-head with ABI in the United States'' and ``that competition has resulted in lower prices and product innovations that have benefited consumers across the country,'' the Justice Department court filing said. ``The proposed acquisition would eliminate this competition by further concentrating the beer industry, enhancing ABI's market power, and facilitating coordinated pricing between ABI and the next largest brewer, MillerCoors, LLC.''
