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. Sebi expands probe into financial dealings of Vijay Mallya firms
The matter is also being flagged to other agencies and government departments, including the corporate affairs ministry and its probe agency the SFIO (Serious Fraud Investigation Office), a senior official said.
The Sebi is looking into violation of securities market regulations including the strict disclosure requirements such as insider dealings with the promoters and related parties.
Besides, Sebi is also probing any possible violation of norms aimed at checking fraudulent and unfair trades and compromising the interest of minority shareholders.
A forensic audit has found possible irregularities and mismanagement in advances and investments made by Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilisers Ltd (MCFL), where Mallya’s UB Group remains a promoter entity despite Zuari Group having acquired a controlling stake, to his other group companies.
As a result, financial dealings of other group companies with their respective promoters are also being probed, the official said.
The board of MCFL, which Zuari Fertilisers and Chemicals Ltd took over last year after wresting control from Mallya, had appointed Ernst and Young LLP to do a forensic investigation into the Rs.200 crore investment MCFL had made in Bangalore Beverages Ltd.
The audit was also asked to look into various advances made by MCFL to Mallya’s flagship United Breweries (Holdings) Ltd (UBHL), of which Rs.16.68 crore was outstanding as of 31 March 2016.
Bangalore Beverages is a step-down subsidiary of UBHL and is facing a liquidity crunch. The audit found these “transactions may have involved irregularities and elements of mismanagement in the company.”
On its part, MCFL is also taking legal advice in connection with the findings of Ernst and Young. MCFL has made provision of Rs.200 crore for potential diminution in the value of investments in Bangalore Beverages.
It has also provided for Rs.16.68 crore advances receivable from UBHL in its books of account for 2015-16.
Various UB Group firms are already facing probes by Sebi relating to listing rule violations, while the corporate affairs ministry is also looking into alleged violations of certain provisions of the Companies Act. The role of previous auditors is also under the scanner.
