The data help explain the size of the fight between the creditor banks and the company owned by Jorge Paulo Lemann, Beto Sicupira and Marcel Telles.

The banks claim they were unaware of the company’s full exposure because of what is being investigated as possible fraud on the balance sheet. The trio of businessmen denies knowledge.
