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. ...

PE firm KKR makes full exit from Vietnam’s Masan Consumer
In a simultaneous announcement, Masan said, that it closed the first funding tranche worth $650 million, part of the $1.1-billion strategic partnership it struck with Thailand’s Singha Asia Holding Pte Ltd last month.
Commenting on its biggest PE bet in Vietnman, Ming Lu, co-head of private equity for KKR Asia, said in a release: “KKR is proud of the successful and win-win partnership with Masan Group. Masan Consumer has established itself as a leader in the Vietnamese fast-moving consumer goods industry.”
“Since KKR entered into partnership with Masan Consumer in 2011, the company has grown both organically and inorganically, capitalising on the structural consumption trends and rising middle class potential in Vietnam, according to KKR statement.
“KKR’s investment has also been an important validation of our business model and our growth potential,” said Seokhee Won, deputy CEO of Masan Group and CEO of Masan Consumer.
In July last year, a representative from Masan Group confirmed to Deal Street Asia that KKR had sold half of its holdings to make a 100 per cent return on its initial investment. Then in late December, KKR sold another tranche of 10 million shares of the food firm to own only 7.93 per cent.
