Russia: Positions of Brewing Companies

The review contains an analysis of interim performance of brewers in the first half of 2019. There are rather dynamic changes behind a modest industry growth. Baltika is again experiencing a stage of volumes and market share slid due to competition with AB InBev Efes. Because of the price competition and presence expansion in the modern trade company #2. has come close to the leading position. At the same time sales of Heineken Russia have continued growing which makes the premium part of the portfolio heavier. The market premiumization trend had been also confirmed by import brands. MBC and Zavod Trekhsosenskiy have been the most successful among federal market players. The market share of independent regional brewers and Ochakovo have continued falling as they are being squeezed out by the market leaders at their competitive fields.

Ukrainian beer market 2019: companies and brands

In 2019 beer production and market have been still fluctuating about zero point. However, the past season was successful for brewers judging by the sales profitability. The price mix has improved due to rapid general market premiumization, as well as its particular aspect, the growth of import beer sales. By the season end AB InBev Efes improved its positions considerably. It turned out that consumers had not forgot Efes brands that had to leave the market, but started to recover rapidly. Against the stagnating market that meant sales decline of other companies, in the first place Carlsberg Group that most of all beneficiated from Efes exiting the market. PPB turned out to be stable to branding activity of its competitor and Obolon kept the same volumes and at the moment it is the absolute leader of the economy segment. The share growth of independent producers took place thanks to leading craft breweries, that so far do not have a big market weight, but they are rapidly gaining it.

Brewing industry in Kazakhstan 2019

During the first half of 2019, the majority of Kazakh brewers made their contribution into positive dynamics. Yet it was companies of the lower division, not the two transnational leaders that raised their production and sales. The shares of draft beer and aluminum can which is rapidly squeezing glass bottle out of the market, have been growing. The price segmentation has remained stable despite the substantial rise of retail prices and fluctuations of brand market shares, while the borders between segments have become blurred. The main events in the industry have been: the announced revision of the beer excise policy, launch of BeerKhan brand in the strong beer segment, and most important – purchasing assets of Shymkentbeer by Arasan.

Modelo Board Said to Have Discussed Foster’s Bid Without Putting to Vote

Grupo Modelo SAB de CV (GMODELOC) discussed with its board of directors a proposal to make a joint bid with Molson Coors Brewing Co. (TAP) for Foster’s Group Ltd. (FGL), though didn’t put the plan up for a vote at a meeting this week, said a person with knowledge of the matter.

Mexico City-based Modelo, the maker of Corona beer, may still be considering an offer for Foster’s, said the person, who declined to be identified because the matter is private. Modelo would need to win support from Anheuser-Busch InBev AB, which has 9 seats on Modelo’s 19-person board and holds a 50 percent non-controlling stake in the Mexican brewer.

Modelo has been talking with Molson about a joint offer for Foster’s, people familiar with the matter said earlier this month. The board met on June 13. A spokeswoman for Modelo declined to comment. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported on the board meeting.

Foster’s distributes Modelo’s Corona brand in Australia. The Australian brewer last month spun off its Treasury Wine Estates Ltd. division, the world’s second-largest winemaker, to concentrate on beer.

Foster’s, with a market value of about A$9 billion ($9.6 billion), has gained 4.5 percent since Treasury started trading on May 10 compared with a 3.9 percent tumble for the benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index in the same period. The stock fell 0.9 percent to A$4.61 as of 12:52 p.m. in Sydney trading.

AB InBev gained the Modelo stake with the $52 billion purchase of Anheuser-Busch in 2008. Carlos Fernandez, chairman and chief executive of Modelo, sued to block the sale of the Modelo shares to AB InBev and lost in a ruling last year.

Fernandez has rejected selling control of Modelo to AB InBev and has said he’d be interested in buying back the stake. At the end of March, Modelo had 27 billion pesos ($2.29 billion) of cash and short-term investments and no debt.

Modelo rose 1.1 percent to 71.03 pesos in Mexico City trading at 4:10 p.m. New York time. The shares have declined 7.1 percent this year.
