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. ...

CVC Said to Hire Adviser After Japanese Approaches for StarBev
CVC has retained Nomura Holdings Inc. (8604) to help evaluate expressions of interest from brewers that include Kirin Holdings Co., Asahi Group Holdings Ltd. and Suntory Holdings Ltd. of Japan, said the people, who declined to be identified because the talks are private and at an early stage. Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev NV (ABI), which sold the business to CVC in 2009, has a right of first offer, they said.
Other companies that may be interested in StarBev include the Turkish brewer Anadolu Efes Biracilik & Malt Sanayii A.?., SABMiller Plc (SAB), Denmark’s Carlsberg A/S (CARLA), and Heineken NV (HEIA) of the Netherlands, one person said.
CVC, which manages a 10.8 billion euro ($14.3 billion) European buyout fund, purchased the operations, which include breweries in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, for $2.2 billion, or 1.5 billion euros at the time. Renamed StarBev, the company employs more than 4,000 people and owns the well-known Czech lager Staropramen.
Spokesmen for CVC, Kirin, Anheuser-Busch InBev, Carlsberg, Heineken, Efes, SAB and Nomura declined to comment. A spokesman for Asahi couldn’t be reached for comment.
The Wall Street Journal reported earlier that CVC had received expressions of interest in StarBev.
