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.

Russia. Baltika Breweries Completed Share Buyback

On 22 July 2011 the share buyback by Baltika Breweries completed.

All shareholders (owners of ordinary and preference shares) could participate in the buyback, regardless of the number of shares they held. The shares have been bought by the Company at a premium to the market price: 1,407 RUB for one ordinary share and 1,286 RUB for one preference type "A" share.

Since the total value of ordinary and preference shares submitted for buyback exceeded the maximum amount of funds earmarked for the share buyback procedure, a share buyback ratio has been established at 0.8701 for ordinary shares and 0.5355 for preference shares.

Total amount of shares bought by the Company amounted 7,319,202 ordinary and 543,241 preference "A" type shares. On 2 August 2011 Baltika completed the buyback payments. The total amount of buyback amounted 10,996,725,140 rubles.

The shares bought during the buyback should be sold at a market price or cancelled with a corresponding decrease of the share capital of the Company within 12 months after the buyback.

It is the current intention of Baltika Breweries within the said 12 months’ period to propose to the General Shareholders’ Meeting that the shares bought back during the share buyback to be cancelled and reduce the Company’s charter capital. This will improve the Company’s capital structure and increase earnings per share which is anticipated to positively impact the investment attractiveness of the Company and consequently benefit all shareholders.

Baltika’s major shareholder, Baltic Beverages Holding AB (subsidiary of Carlsberg Breweries A/S, Denmark) participated in the buy-back. When such cancellation happens and due to the over-subscription for buy-back, Baltic Beverages Holding AB's holding of company's capital will increase insignificantly.

***

The company’s issued share capital consists of 151,714,594 ordinary shares and 12,326,570 A-type preference shares. The nominal value of each ordinary and preference share is RUB 1. The company’s issued share capital totals RUB 164,041,164. For the last several years the company’s shares (ordinary and preference) have been traded on stock exchanges and over-the-counter markets.

At present the company’s shares in circulation on the stock exchanges are listed in the ‘Listed Securities Not Included in Quotation Lists’ section of the catalogue.
