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. Stake hike doesn’t change UBL governance structure: Heineken
"Heineken can confirm that it has acquired in total 21,15,088 UBL shares... The transaction increases Heineken's stake in UBL from 42.2 per cent to 43 per cent...It does not result in any changes to the UBL governance structure," a Heineken spokesperson told PTI in an emailed response.
The spokesperson further said: "Heineken continues to be positive about the prospects of the business in India. India has highly favourable demographics with strong economic fundamentals, so the market remains an exciting opportunity for continued growth."
Last week, Heineken International consolidated its stake in UBL by picking up over 21 lakh shares of Vijay Mallya-led firm for Rs 179 crore through open market transactions.
The spokesperson said Heineken had acquired in total 21,15,088 UBL shares.
"We acquired 6,00,000 UBL shares from Yes Bank for Rs 847 per share, 8,52,548 UBL shares from ECL Finance for Rs 845 per share and an additional 6,62,540 UBL shares from ECL Finance for Rs 847 per share, respectively... The total price was 24 million euro," he added.
Earlier this month, Vijay Mallya left India for the UK amid growing clamour for recovery of over Rs 9,000 crore dues to banks by now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines.
Since then, there have been speculations that Heineken, being the largest investor in UBL, is looking to increase its stake and also take control of the company.
Mallya is under pressure to pay-off the dues. In a stern warning to wilful defaulters like Vijay Mallya, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has said that they should settle their dues honourably with the banks or else be ready to face "coercive action" by lenders and investigative agencies.
"I don't want to make any comments on individual cases but I think it's a responsibility of large groups like his (Vijay Mallya's) to honourably settle their dues with the banks," he had told PTI in an interview here.
