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. ...

Foster’s Says It Is Aware of Buyout Talk
Foster's shares were up 5.1% earlier in the trading session, prompting the Australian Stock Exchange to inquire about the stock's rising price. The group noted the media speculation about a potential bid but said it didn't have anything to disclose to the market.
Foster's beer business has long been considered a potential takeover target amid global consolidation in the brewing industry. The company's shares lost some momentum in late trading, and were recently up 3.5% at A$4.43 after trading as high as A$4.62.
Mexican brewer Grupo Modelo SAB de CV and North American rival Molson Coors Brewing Co. have been exploring a possible joint bid for Foster's, Bloomberg News reported Thursday, citing five people with knowledge of the situation. A takeover could face challenges if brewing giant Anheuser-Busch InBev NV, which owns 50% of Modelo, seeks to block a deal, the people told Bloomberg.
At the current share price, Foster's has a market capitalization of A$8.67 billion ($9.11 billion).
Foster's announced it would officially demerge its wine and beer assets in February, a move that was long suspected. The company's wine assets have been a drag on the bottom line in recent year. The operations have been plagued by write-downs owing to an oversupply of grapes and wines from Australia in the global marketplace, the financial crisis and a strong Australian dollar, making it difficult for Foster's to grow sales of its premium wines in key markets like the U.S.
Sales of beer in Australia have come under pressure in recent years as specialist boutique and low-carbohydrate beers have grown in popularity. In Foster's most recent financial results, the Carlton and United Breweries beer volumes for Australia declined 5.8%. Management said its beer division was hurt by a "significant decline" in beer-market volume in Australia.
Foster's beer brands include VB, Carlton Draught and low-carb beer Pure Blonde.
