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. United Breweries board seeks legal view on Sebi’s ‘wilful defaulter’ rules
The independent directors on board of United Breweries (UBL), which has Heinekin and Vijay Mallya as the major shareholders, have sought legal opinion on the rules governing wilful defaulter.
Vijay Mallya, currently chairman of UBL, has also legally challenged the application of the new rules by capital market regulator on wilful defaulter and its implication to his board position at UBL. His contention is that he is a shareholder and promoter of the company.
"We have sought legal opinion to understand the Sebi notification and its implication on UBL and will decide on the course of action at our next board meeting," Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, chair of Biocon and independent board member on United Breweries, said.
Mallya recently resigned from the role of chairman at other companies such as Sanofi and Bayer. The RBI directives restrict a company or a director who has been declared a wilful defaulter from raising debt. Likewise, the new Sebi regulations restrict the company and a director who is a wilful defaulter from accessing the capital markets, except under limited circumstances.
"Neither the RBI directions nor Sebi rules require a director who is declared as a wilful defaulter to step down from a company," said Prem Rajani, managing partner of law firm Rajani Associates.
However, if such a director stands to be disqualified under section 164 of the Companies Act, he cannot be appointed as a director of any other company or be re-appointed as a director of the same company for a period of five years, he added. "The board of directors of the company may call upon such a director to step down from the company to save the company from being a wilful defaulter," Rajani said.
Officials close to Vijay Mallya said the notification is about nominating directors and the rule is not applicable to him as a promoter. Heinekin declined to comment on the subject, while Mallya did not respond to an email.
Relations between Mallya and Heineken are said to be cordial in the absence of any ownership or financial tussle between the two, said people aware of the matter. It's also understood that Mallya's chairmanship will remain unchallenged even if his stake fell.
Heineken now has a 43% in UB compared to Mallya's 32% in 2009, both had 37.5% each. After raising its stake recently to 42.2% for 24 million, Heineken said the move would not change UB's governance structure.
