Beer market of Kazakhstan acquired both traits of East European countries and South Eastern Asia taking a transitional position between them by many criteria and consumption style. Yet there is a positive trend in beer production which differs Kazakhstan from most of the neighboring countries. The market has remained consolidated in the hands of two international players because of its small size. However, it faces dynamic processes such as fast growth of draft beer sales, up and downs of regional companies and Carlsberg Group’s ultimate expansion. Excessive mainstream segment has declined over the recent years, yet, Zhigulevskoe and national brands with regional links have yielded their positions to a range of new products. In our review special attention was paid to regional analysis of the markets. In 14 regions of Kazakhstan we compared the companies’ positions, the market price segmentation and DIOT channel development. Besides we have compared the beer market of Kazakhstan to neighboring countries. ...

Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...
Vietnam Government to have $7 billion by selling 12 big SOEs
VTC News quoted Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai as reporting that all VND9 trillion worth of the state’s capital in Habeco would be divested within this year.
Meanwhile, the VND40.5 trillion worth of capital in Sabeco would be divested in 2016-2017.
As for the other 10 enterprises to be sold, Nguyen Duc Chi, chair of the State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC), mentioned well-known names such as Vinamilk (dairy producer), Bao Minh (insurer), Vinare (re-insurance), Tien Phong Plastics, FPT (technology) and FPT Telecom.
Under the Prime Minister’s instruction in Document No 1787 on the SCIC restructuring plan, SCIC will have to withdraw all capital from the 10 enterprises.
Of the 10 enterprises in SCIC’s portfolio, in Vinamilk alone, the State has a 45 percent stake. With the current market price, the State would earn at least $4.52 billion if it sells the stake.
The other nine enterprises, as estimated by Tuoi Tre, have value of $530 million (most of the enterprises list their shares on the bourse or have been equitized). As such, the total capital the state can expect from selling 10 enterprises put under the SCIC’s management is over $5 billion.
There are no official figures about the value of the other two enterprises – Sabeco and Habeco. However, local newspapers reported that in 2014, ThaiBev, a brewery from Thailand, wanted to buy the state’s stake in Sabeco for $2 bilion.
Meanwhile, if referring to the price at which Carlsberg spent to acquire Habeco’s stakes – VND50,000 per share - the state’s shares in Habeco would be valued at $400 million.
As such, if the state divests its capital in 12 enterprises as planned, it would collect $7.2 billion, a large amount of money in the current context of the tight budget.
However, an analyst said it would be very difficult to assess the exact value of enterprises.
If share auctions can be organized in a professional way, the share price may be much higher than the current market price.
However, the situation may be different if the state sells shares in large quantities at the same time (in 2016-2017).
A source from SCIC said that SCIC would sell two out of 10 enterprises it controls in 2016. These include FPT and Sa Giang Import/Export JSC.
