The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
India. Heineken takes larger swig, ups UB stake to nearly 44 per cent
UB’s original promoter Vijay Mallya, who has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate and accused of defaulting on bank loans, continues to hold 32.29% stake.
The sellers included ECL Finance and Yes Bank and the average price of shares, bought on Wednesday, works out to Rs 846.27 apiece, marginally higher than Wednesday’s closing price.
The UBL shares closed 0.93% lower at R834.75 per share on the BSE.
In 2005, the UB Group had divested 37.5% stake to the Scottish & Newcastle (S&N) Group, making it an equal partner in UBL, while the acquisition of S&N made the Dutch beer giant the co-promoter of UBL. Heineken had also acquired more than 1% through an open-market transaction in December 2013.
In July last year, Heineken had bought a 3.21% stake in UBL for a consideration of Rs 872 crore from Diageo-owned United Spirits, which ceased to be a promoter in the company.
Mallya, who owes around R9,091 crore to a consortium of banks led by State Bank of India (SBI), had already sold United Spirits to Diageo in 2012 for $2.1 billion. Mallya is currently out of the country as banks have moved the courts seeking his arrest and confiscation of his passport. They have also managed to stop the $75-million exit payout Mallya got from Diageo for resigning as chairman of the spirits company. However, Diageo had already paid $42 million to Mallya on the day he signed the agreement on February 25.
Mallya has also lost control in his other UB Group company, Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilisers.
