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. ...
“Catalogue of Russian Beer Producers 2018” includes 1070 businesses ranging from large subsidiaries of international companies to rather small restaurant and craft microbreweries.The catalogue includes 32 large breweries, 75 regional breweries, 693 industrial mini- and microbreweries as well as 270 restaurant breweries. ...
Predator keen to revitalise premium beer market
Drawing on a successful history of boosting sales in the strong beer markets of the Czech Republic and Poland, analysts yesterday said the maker of Grolsch has plenty of scope to build premium brands in Australia.
Fosters shares gained 1.17 per cent in trading yesterday, finishing at $5.20, with investors continuing to back the the move by Foster's earlier this week to knock back a $9.5 billion takeover proposal - with many analysts saying the bid will have to grow to at least $10.5 billion to succeed.
Analysts are now predicting SABMiller will have to return with a price from $5.25 to $5.50 - rather than the $4.90 initially offered.
SABMiller was believed to be trying to meet Foster's chairman David Crawford in London for negotiations.
While SABMiller on Tuesday said any purchase would be funded from existing profits and new debt facilities, Bloomberg yesterday reported the brewer would raise $10 billion in debt.
Analysts predict the play for Fosters will be a long-haul by the cashed up Anglo-African brewer which they say is driven by a belief no other serious bidders will emerge.
Pundits yesterday drew a picture in which SABMiller could effectively stare down Foster's to extract the lowest possible price.
Two key tactics include waiting for the Aussie dollar to drop and for Foster's results to reflect the brewer's weak operating position to investors.
"SABMiller's opening proposal of $4.90 was not a knockout offer," Credit Suisse analyst Larry Gandler said.
To further complicate matters analysts yesterday said SABMiller itself could be a takeover target -- and that the move on Foster's could be a bid to pick up a strategically important asset to make themselves too expensive for a predator.
Analysts yesterday said Foster's could do more to increase its Australian market.
"Our visits to Poland and Czech several years back left us impressed with management's ability to drive per capita consumption of beer in these relatively high per capita consumption markets," Mr Gandler said.
But Merrill Lynch analyst David Errington said there was also earnings potential in replacing the Abbotsford brewery with a state of the art facility.
Mr Errington said there would also be earnings of up to $100 million in reclaiming the 5 per cent market share lost over the past half decade.
