0 Australia: Lion Nathan announces takeover bid for Coopers Brewery

Lion Nathan Ltd announced on September 1 that it intends, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Lion Nathan Australia Pty Ltd, to make an off-market offer for Coopers Brewery Ltd.The Offer is A$260 per share in cash for each class of Coopers shares. The Offer values the ordinary equity in Coopers at A$352 million. The Offer is not subject to a minimum acceptance condition.

The Offer of A$260 per share in cash provides a demonstrably fair price to Coopers shareholders and represents:

-a 478% premium to the price of a buy-back conducted by Coopers of A$45.01 per share in 2003;
-a 416% to 557% premium to the value of Coopers as assessed by the Independent Expert (KPMG) in a report prepared in relation to the buyback conducted by Coopers in 2003;
-a multiple of 19.4 times Coopers’ 30 June 2004 EBITDA(Coopers’ last published accounts), which compares favourably with precedent transactions and sector trading benchmarks; and
-an opportunity for Coopers shareholders to access liquidity and sell some or all of their shares.

Coopers is an unlisted public company based in Regency Park, South Australia. Coopers has approximately 117 shareholders, some of whom have approached Lion Nathan recently with a view ...

0 USA: For the first time sine 1992 Beer gives up its place to wine as America's Drink of Choice

Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced on September 1 that for the first time since 1992 when Gallup began tracking beverage preferences, wine has surpassed beer as America's alcoholic drink of choice. In the latest poll taken July 7-10, 39 percent of participants preferred wine, 36 percent preferred beer and 21 percent chose liquor as their drink of choice. As recently as 2000, beer topped wine 43 percent to 31 percent and was the top selection again in 2004 by a 39 to 33 percent margin. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board says the shift is no surprise.

"We're seeing more customers with a genuine curiosity and eagerness to try new things," said PLCB Chairman Jonathan Newman. "The preconceptions of wine as a 'fancy' beverage are also being broken down. People are beginning to recognize wine as something they can enjoy in many of the same situations where they once enjoyed beer."

In Pennsylvania, wine sales increased from 18.3 million gallons in calendar year 2003 to 19.4 million in 2004. During the same time period, spirits sales rose from 12.8 million gallons to 13.7 million gallons. Beer sales still far outpace both wine and spirits sales in Pennsylvania, but sales fell slightly from 337.4 ...
