China Resources Beer to raise HK$9.5b in rights issue, as it preps to buy SABMiller’s 49pc stake in Snow Breweries
The brewery behemoth under Chinese state-owned conglomerate China Resources said part of the money raised would be used to fund the purchase.
A rights issue - an offering of shares to existing shareholders - was carried out at a 30.8 per cent discount to Tuesday’s closing price at HK$16.94, comprising as many as 811 million rights shares on the basis of one for every three existing shares.
As of 11:30am, CR Beer’s shares were at HK$16.30, down 3.78 per cent from Tuesday’s close.
The deal, which was believed be one of the biggest rights issues in Hong Kong’s capital market during the last year, came months after the beer maker announced proposals to boost its stake in the country’s biggest brewing company.
“We will continue to explore business expansion opportunities through both organic growth and acquisitions,” Chen Lang, chairman of CR Beer said. “To capture these growth opportunities, we consider the rights issue to be in the best interests of the company and its shareholders as a whole.”
CR Beer’s co-owned Chinese brand Snow is the world’s largest-selling beer, accounting for 23.2 per cent of the beer market in China in 2014, according to data from Euromonitor, an international market research company.
But it is also faced with intensifying competition from other major players, including Tsingtao Brewery, Beijing Yanjing Brewery and Carlsberg, as well as a shifting preferences among Chinese consumers who are increasingly turning to higher-end beer.
CR Beer’s US$1.6 billion acquisition of SABMiller’s stake in CR Snow is anticipated to go through by the end of this year. Nomura analysts said in November that SABMiller’s 49 per cent stake is Snow Breweries could fetch up to US$3.6 billion.
Over the last year, big transactions of this kind in Hong Kong include a rights issue by Chinese conglomerate Fosun International, which raised over HK$11.6 billion last September.
