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. ...

Duvel Moortgat to Acquire Liefmans?
UPDATE: One of my terrific readers, Tristan, was kind enough to translate the article linked above into English for the rest of us. Here is the translated article in it's entirety:
Duvel Moortgat confirms its offer on the Liefmans Brewery
The Duvel Moortgat brewery has put down an offer to pursue temporarily running the Liefmans Brewery (declared bankrupt) under the direction of its curators. This was confirmed by Duvel Moortgat in a message circulated Tuesday. It also made an offer to retake some of the assets of the defunct companies Brouwerif Liefmans and Liefmans Breweries.
The Courtrai Tribunal of Commerce declared the bankruptcy of the Liefmans Breweries established in Dentergem and Audenarde last December. The brewery had then asked for a judicial agreement, but the judge declared the bankruptcy immediately. Fifty workers lost their jobs.
The Tribunal named five curators who, at present, are looking for a temporary operator, because the two guiding shareholders of the brewery declared bankruptcy having made the call against the decision of the Courtrai Tribunal of Commerce.
Besides Duvel Moortgat, the two acting shareholders of the Liefmans Brewery of Dentergem, Renaldo Delabie and Gino Vantieghem, have also made an offer to take over the provisionary operation of their business.
Before the designation of any provisionary operator, the curators must receive the agreement of the Courtrai Tribunal of Commerce. A definite buyer will be named after the decision in court.
