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. ...

SABMiller a step closer to snaring Australia’s Foster’s
SABMiller and Foster's last week agreed on a sweetened A$9.9 billion takeover deal.
"The proposed acquisition is not likely to result in a substantial lessening of competition for the supply of beer," said Rod Sims, Chairman of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
The ACCC backing comes after the Foster's board agreed to accept SABMiller's raised offer of A$5.10 plus a capital return and dividend last week, after a three-month battle by SABMiller to win over management at the Australian brewer.
Key shareholders also backed the improved deal, with only an outside chance of a rival offer now posing a threat.
Foster's Chairman David Crawford wrote to shareholders on Tuesday, saying the "significantly improved offer from SABMiller is a compelling proposal and represent the value inherent in this iconic Australian company."
The bid for Foster's comes after it lost market share and underwent a management shake-up.
Shares in Foster's, maker of Victoria Bitter, Carlton Draught and Pure Blonde, were flat at A$5.285 at 0214 GMT (10:14 p.m. EDT). The deal is worth A$5.53 a share to stakeholders, factoring in the capital return and a dividend.
