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. ...

RLPC-ABInBev seeks to cut pricing on $8 bln loan
The company has asked its banks to cut pricing on the $8 billion revolving credit to around 45 basis points (bp) from around 75 bp, banking sources said.
ABInBev joins a long list of highly-rated blue-chip companies that are taking advantage of improved loan market conditions to cut the pricing on loans arranged only last year.
The changes are being done via a loan amendment which is being arranged by ABInBev, one of the sources said. AB InBev declined to comment.
AB InBev secured $17.2 billion of long-term financing in February 2010 which refinanced the remainder of the company's $45 billion loan facilities that financed the acquisition of Anheuser-Busch in 2008.
The $17.2 billion of loans comprised a $5 billion, five-year term loan paying 117.5 bp over LIBOR, an $8 billion, five-year revolving credit facility paying 97.5 bp over LIBOR and $4.2 billion of bilateral facilities.
The bilateral facilities were cancelled at the end of March 2010.
Margins on the $8 billion revolving credit fell to the current 75 bp level from 95 bp after ABInBev's rating was upgraded by the ratings agencies. The company is rated A- by Standard & Poor's, Baa1 by Moody's and A- by Fitch.
The $8 billion revolving credit facility also paid a commitment fee of 35 percent of the margin on undrawn available funds and a utilisation fee of up to 30 bp depending on the amount drawn.
