Inbev buy out

Very confused. Purchased 400 SAB shares well over 20 years ago. In terms of latest offer from Inbev:- - Option 1 being forced to sell but unable to establish capital gains tax - what would the base cost be - am I correct first R40,000 is tax free. Thereafter what rate of tax do I pay - not consoidered income so hence not my normal tax rate? - Option 2 - get partial cash and Inbev shares but subkect to excon approval - is this a blanket approval or do I need to apply individually? What are the consequences of option 2? Any guidance / information ect will ne much appreciated. Thank you. Ricky

Re:Inbev buy out

just roll the dice on 2, or option 3 buy abinbev straight, or option 4 sell straight away. As for cgt , i aint having an idea. Remember option 2 , no trading for 5 years.

Thanks Koos. Do you know what the exchange control requirements as well as the tax considerations are?
