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.

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.

Kirin Said to Offer at Least 2 Billion Reais for Schincariol Minor Stake

Kirin Holdings Co., the Japanese brewer seeking control of Schincariol Participacoes e Representacoes, is offering at least 2 billion reais ($1.08 billion) to buy out minority investors in the Brazilian beer maker, said a person with knowledge of the process.

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.

Buying Spree
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.
