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.
Japan. Asahi Europe appoints head of legal from SABMiller as brewing deal finalises
Japanese beer giant Asahi made a €2.55bn bid to acquire SABMiller's brands such as Peroni and Grolsch in February as SABMiller completes its mega-merger with Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev).
Newly-appointed Perks has one direct report, a legal counsel working alongside him, and works closely with the existing legal teams for Peroni and Grolsh. He had been at SABMiller for more than four years, joining from Hogan Lovells.
Only a month after the acquisition was finalised, Perks is yet to choose the company's lead advisers but Allen & Overy remains a preferred choice. The Magic Circle firm advised Asahi on the SABMiller divestment, is its largest acquisition to date, with a team led by corporate partner Richard Hough. London employment partner Sarah Henchoz, banking partner Trevor Borthwick, transitional services partner Jim Ford, antitrust partner Alasdair Balfour and tax partner Lydia Challen also worked on the deal.
Perks told Legal Business: 'This is a really exciting opportunity to be involved in a company that's a mixture of a start-up with fantastic brands and assets being brought together. We're setting up and doing things for the first time. There's a huge amount of energy here, particularly on the back of a very lengthy divestment process.'
Perks' move comes as it was revealed SABMiller's general counsel John Davidson will stand down when the merger is complete, following a review by AB InBev with up to 35 staff in the UK-based legal team to be made redundant.
Those affected include company secretary and deputy GC Stephen Shapiro, who is responsible for managing the internal commercial legal function; deputy GC for M&A, Stephen Jones; and deputy GC for regulatory and industry affairs, John Fraser, who devises and implements global regulatory strategies for the company.
