- 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. ...

The combination of interim dividends and share buybacks is a common international practice and well-regarded among international investors. The Board of Directors believes that this combination of an interim dividend and a buyback at a premium is in the interests of Baltika shareholders.
The low liquidity of Baltika shares has made it difficult for shareholders to exit their investment in the company. The buyback will give shareholders an opportunity to exit their investments in a cost-effective way and will allow shareholders, in particular, sell their shares at a premium to the market price, without transaction costs, broker fees, exchange services or commissions, and other costs, related to market share sales. The sales of shares directly to the company allows potential risks, connected with sales of shares to third parties, to be minimized.
In accordance with legislation, the shares bought during the buyback should be sold at market price or cancelled with a corresponding decrease of the share capital of the company within12 months after the buyback.
The Company’s issued share capital consists of 151,714,594 ordinary shares and 12,326,570 type "A" preference shares. The nominal value of each ordinary and preference share is RUB 1. The Company’s issued share capital totals RUB 164,041,164.
