- 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. ...

SINGAPORE: APB’s group revenue rises 20% in first nine month of 2011
Group revenue for the nine months stood at S$2.24 billion, up 20% or S$370 million as compared with the same period a year ago.
Mr Roland Pirmez, Chief Executive Officer, APB said, “Improvements in Group PBIT, APBE and revenue were mainly due to stronger demand for our brands in Vietnam, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia. We also recorded an exceptional income of S$36.3 million with the recent divestment of interest in Kingway Brewery that further contributed to our ANP growth of 36%.”
In addition to driving organic growth in its existing markets to improve its earnings profile, the Group made strategic investments to further expand its regional network in recent months. Forging ahead with its premium brand strategy in China, APB commissioned its 50%-owned greenfield brewery, in Guangzhou in May 2011. It also extended its presence in the South Pacific by acquiring a 97.69% interest in Solomon Breweries Limited in June 2011.
Operations Review (YTD)
South & South East Asia (Singapore, Export Markets, Malaysia, Indonesia and Sri Lanka)
Volume and PBIT for the region rose 25% and 37% respectively, boosted mainly by the acquisition of breweries in Indonesia in February 2010. Excluding the results from Indonesia from October 2010 to January 2011, PBIT grew 4%, driven by higher volumes in Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka as well as improved margins in Indonesia.
Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos) & Thailand
Volume for the region grew 18%, led by continued growth momentum in Vietnam. Increased marketing also lifted volumes in Cambodia and Laos.
PBIT grew 20%, underpinned by higher volume and better margins in Vietnam. Excluding translation losses that arise mainly from the 18% devaluation in the Vietnamese dong, PBIT grew organically by 41%.
North Asia (China and Mongolia)
PBIT for the region fell 15% to S$1.8 million. The region incurred higher gestation losses from the newly-commissioned brewery in Guangzhou while improved margins and volumes were reported in Mongolia.
Oceania (New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia)
Volume and PBIT for the region grew 10% and 27% respectively. The strong performance was mainly attributed to contributions from the newly acquired brewery in New Caledonia. Excluding the results from New Caledonia from October 2010 to January 2011, PBIT grew 20% due to higher volumes and improved margins in Papua New Guinea.
Corporate office expenses were higher than same period last year mainly due to higher personnel expenses offset by higher royalty income and lower marketing expenditure.
Rising inflation in our main markets compounded by the recent global economic uncertainties may dampen consumer demand.
Strengthening of the Singapore Dollar against regional currencies, particularly the Vietnamese Dong, will continue to adversely affect the reported financial results of the Group.
The company share price has further appreciated in the last three months, resulting in a higher provision for employee share-based expenses. Taking the current share price as a reference, additional provisions will be required for the last quarter of the financial year.
