0 Japan: Country's third-largest beer maker may be bought by a higher-rated rival

Investors should sell the credit- default swaps of Sapporo Holdings Ltd. as Japan's third-largest beer maker may be bought by a higher-rated rival, analysts at JP Morgan Securities Co. and Shinsei Securities Co. said, according to Bloomberg, February 20.

The cost of protecting 1 billion yen ($8.35 million) of Tokyo-based Sapporo's debt from default will fall to 1.5 million yen, should Asahi Breweries Ltd. offer to buy the company to counter a bid from Steel Partners Japan Strategic Fund LP, said Mana Nakazora, chief credit analyst at JP Morgan in Tokyo. The price was 3.06 million yen as of 6:30 p.m. in Tokyo.

We recommend selling Sapporo's credit default protection because of the chance it will be bought by a bigger rival,'' said Yasuhiro Matsumoto, an analyst at Shinsei in Tokyo. Asahi is rated five levels higher than Sapporo at A- by Standard & Poor's and has more expertise in operating a beer maker than Steel Partners, he said.

Kirin Brewery Co. may consider an alliance with Sapporo, the Mainichi newspaper reported today, citing an unidentified executive at the Tokyo-based brewer. Asahi will look into an alliance should Sapporo ask for help to counter the Steel Partners takeover, the Nikkei and ...

0 USA: Craft beers consumption surged up in 2006

The continuing growth of craft beer entered double digit territory in 2006, with sales by craft brewers up 11.7% by volume for the year, according to US Brewers Association, February 20. This comes on top of strong growth in each of the prior three years and illustrates the ongoing surge of consumer interest in craft beers.

“American tastes are clearly changing thus the demand for more flavorful and diverse beers is exploding,” said Paul Gatza, Director of the Brewers Association, which tabulates industry growth data.

The Brewers Association estimates 2006 sales by craft brewers at over 6,600,000 barrels (one barrel equals 31 U.S. gallons) up from an adjusted total of just under 6,000,000 barrels in 2005. The increase totals over 690,000 barrels or 9.5 million case-equivalents. For 2006 craft beer posted a retail sales figure of $4.2 billion.
A strong area of distribution for craft beer is grocery, convenience, drug and liquors stores. According to Information Resources Inc. (IRI), “The beer category reaped growth from import (+10.9%) and micro-brew (+16.9%) products, while suffering losses across domestic and non-alcoholic varieties.”

“Craft beer has become a great American success story and today U.S. craft brewers are being watched, emulated and celebrated globally.” stated Julia ...

0 World: Beer is No.1 food and beverage category for growth value in the World

Data contained in ACNielsen’s most recent report on global food and beverage trends indicates that for the second consecutive year, beer is the No. 1 category for growth value in the world, according to Anheuser-Busch’s press room, February 16. Findings from ACNielsen’s 2006 edition of What’s Hot Around the Globe -- Insights on Growth in Food & Beverage Products demonstrate the overall alcohol category grew 4% with Beer/Lager/Ales making up 5% of the total with category growth value at $4 billion, $1.2 billion more than the second leading category, carbonated beverages, and $2.7 billion more than wine.

“Beer transcends cultural barriers and can be shared in any type of occasion,” said Bob Lachky, executive vice president of Global Industry Development for Anheuser-Busch. “Last year, a Gallup Poll indicated that once again, beer is America’s beverage of choice and the recent news of beer driving the category for growth value in the world further crystallizes the notion that beer is back in full, global force.”

The 2006 edition of What’s Hot Around the World - Insights on Growth in Food & Beverage Products as reported by ACNielsen looks at the fastest-growing categories and product areas across 66 key markets around the world, ...
