Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...
APB Records Increase in Net Profit Growth of 65% in First Quarter
•Profit before Interest and Taxation gained 53% to S$207.5 million
•Revenue grew 35% to S$856.9 million
Asia Pacific Breweries Ltd (APB) is pleased to announce a strong performance for the first quarter ended 31 December 2010.
Attributable net profit grew 65% or S$45.6 million to S$115.7 million. Group profit before interest and taxation (PBIT) advanced to S$207.5 million, an increase of S$71.8 million or 53% as compared to first quarter last year. Group revenue stood at S$856.9 million, an increase of 35% over the same period last year. The improvement in earnings was driven mainly by organic growth and new businesses.
Mr Roland Pirmez, Chief Executive Officer, APB commented, “The significant top line gain was attributable to volume contributions from our new businesses in Indonesia and New Caledonia, robust organic growth mainly as a result of beer price increases in Papua New Guinea and Vietnam and stronger beer sales in Singapore and most of our regional markets, driven by keen festive demand.”
South & South East Asia (Singapore, Export Markets, Malaysia, Indonesia* & Sri Lanka)
Volume and PBIT rose 82% and 134% respectively. The results of the corresponding period last year excluded performance from Indonesia as consolidated earnings from the market were only taken into account from February 2010. Excluding the results from Indonesia, the region reported a volume increase of 12%, owing to stronger sales in Singapore and Malaysia.
Indochina ( Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos) and Thailand
Overall volume grew 18% due to stronger sales, particularly in Vietnam, in the run up to TET (Lunar New Year). As a result of this increase in volume, together with price increases in Vietnam, PBIT rose 40%. Excluding translation losses, PBIT grew organically by 56%.
North Asia (China and Mongolia)
Turning around from a loss of S$3.0 million reported last year, the region contributed a PBIT of S$0.2 million. The improved performance was attributable to favourable sales mix, lower overheads and exchange gain of S$1.6 million from the currency realignment of US dollar loans compared to an exchange loss of S$0.3 million last year. Excluding the impact from such exchange differences, a loss of S$1.4 million would have been incurred.
Oceania (New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia*)
Volume and PBIT grew 12% and 20% respectively. The improved earnings were mainly due to the new profit contributions from New Caledonia as well as price increases in Papua New Guinea. The results of the corresponding period last year excluded the performance from New Caledonia which was consolidated for the first time from February 2010. Excluding the results from New Caledonia in the first quarter ended 31 December 2010, PBIT grew 4%, owing to better margins in Papua New Guinea.
With a stronger Singapore Dollar and a high proportion of the Group’s earnings from outside Singapore, the financial performance will continue to be sensitive to currency movements in the countries where the Group operates.
