Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

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. ...
Kirin Said to Offer at Least 2 Billion Reais for Schincariol Minor Stake
The plan is to offer minority shareholders a per-share price that’s close to what Kirin agreed to pay majority holders Adriano and Alexandre Schincariol, the sons of the founder, said the person, who declined to be identified as talks are private. Kirin agreed last month to pay 3.95 billion reais for Aleadri- Schinni Participacoes e Representacoes SA, which owns 50.45 percent of the brewer.
An agreement may help resolve the court dispute holding up the deal, which would give Kirin a foothold in Latin America’s largest beer market with brands such as Nova Schin and Devassa. Jose Augusto Schincariol, Daniela Schincariol and Gilberto Schincariol Junior, who own the rest of the Brazilian beer maker, had sued to block Kirin’s purchase, saying they have the right of first refusal on Aleadri-Schinni’s holdings.
Kirin, based in Tokyo, is assuming half Schincariol’s 1.1 billion reais in debt as part of the transaction. The brewer is still negotiating with minority and majority shareholders over who will assume Schincariol’s labor, legal and tax liabilities, which stood at 2.1 billion reais at the end of 2010.
Kirin hired UBS AG for the deal with the minority shareholders, two people familiar with the process said. Citigroup Inc. advised Kirin for the controlling stake.
Brazil’s Supreme Court of Justice is scheduled to deliver a decision on the matter Oct. 11.
Kan Yamamoto, a spokesman for Kirin, declined to comment. Teixeira Martins, a law firm that represents Schincariol minority shareholders, declined to comment. Mattos Filho Veiga Filho Marrey Junior e Quiroga Advogados, a law firm that represents Schincariol’s majority shareholders, declined to comment. UBS and Citigroup declined to comment.
Kirin, Japan’s second-largest brewer by volume, has made or proposed at least five acquisitions in 2011. The Schincariol purchase is the second-largest in the beer industry this year, trailing only SabMiller Plc’s A$9.9 billion ($9.64 billion) offer for Foster’s Group Ltd.
