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 CEO Says SABMiller Offer Was «So Far From Reality»
"The value (of the bid) was so far from reality, it wasn't worth engaging," John Pollaers told a business lunch in Melbourne, adding: "I'm not saying we would never engage."
Pollaers, who has led the brewer since May, said the company has launched a number of initiatives aimed at unlocking Foster's performance and which will reward shareholders.
SABMiller in June made an unsolicited cash bid for Foster's at A$4.90 a share, which the Melbourne company rejected as significantly undervaluing it. Graham Mackay, chief executive of the London-based company, at the time said his company would continue to seek talks with Foster's.
Foster's is the leading beer maker in Australia, with seven of the top 10 brands and a national distribution network that SABMiller would be able to sell its portfolio of international brands that includes Grolsch, Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Miller Genuine Draft.
In May, Foster's divested and listed its Treasury Wine Estates Ltd. (TWE.AU) wine business.
Pollaers said there has been no engagement with SABMiller since the approach was made. "Since then, it has been business as usual," he said.
