Shares of Constellation Brands Inc. STZ rose more than 2% on Apr 7, following better-than-expected sales and earnings in fourth-quarter fiscal 2022. The metrics also improved year over year. Results benefited from continued growth in the beer business and robust consumer demand.

Constellation Brands posted fiscal fourth-quarter comparable earnings of $2.37 per share, which advanced 30% year over year and surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.15.

Net sales rose 8% to $2,103 million and surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2,016 million. Organic net sales were up 11% year over year. Organic sales benefited from robust growth in the beer business, and organic sales growth in the wine and spirits business.

The company’s beer business reported sales growth of 14% to $1,565.7 million, including a 9.9% increase in shipment volumes and a 9.8% depletion of volume growth.

Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands to repurchase $500 mln of its own stock
Constellation Brands, Inc., a leading beverage alcohol company, announced on April 7 that it has entered into an accelerated share repurchase (“ASR”) agreement with Bank of America, N.A. to repurchase $500.0 million of its Class A common stock (“Common Stock”).

Under the ASR agreement, Constellation will receive approximately 1.7 million shares on April 8, 2022, representing approximately 80% of the expected share repurchases under the ASR agreement, based on the company’s April 6, 2022 closing stock price of $231.81. The repurchased shares will become treasury shares.

The specific number of shares to be repurchased in the transaction is generally based upon the volume-weighted-average price of the Common Stock during the term of the ASR agreement, less a discount and is expected to be completed no later than May 2022. The purchase price for shares repurchased in the accelerated share repurchase transaction will be paid primarily with cash on hand and will be completed under the company’s current share repurchase authorization, which currently has approximately $2.6 billion in authorization remaining before giving effect to the ASR.

This ASR agreement will not change the fiscal 2023 EPS guidance provided in our news release of earlier today and constitutes the $500 million share repurchase referenced ...More info on site

Brewery news Canada: Government scraps excise duties on non-alcoholic beer
Beer Canada welcomes the elimination of all federal alcohol excise duties on non-alcoholic beer announced in the federal Budget on April 7.

Budget 2022 includes an amendment to Canada's Excise Act removing alcohol excise taxes on beer containing no more than 0.5% alcohol by volume. The duty-free treatment for non-alcoholic beer is consistent with how non-alcoholic wines and spirits are already treated in Canada and how Canada's major trading partners treat non-alcoholic beer.

"We are pleased that the Government of Canada has removed this unintended barrier to the development and introduction of quality Canadian non-alcoholic beers," stated CJ Hélie, President of Beer Canada.

Non-alcoholic beer represents a small but growing segment of the global beer market with double-digit annual growth expected as consumers seek greater variety and styles of beer including those containing a broader range of alcohol content.

Low and no alcohol beers are an increasingly popular choice for adult consumers on those occasions when they are looking for the great taste of beer, but without the alcohol.

"The elimination of alcohol excise duties on non-alcoholic beer is a good first step, and we look forward to continuing to work with Minister Freeland to modernize Canada's alcohol excise duty structure and implement further ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: Budweiser Budvar rebrands its unpasteurised lager Kraüsened as Budvar Nefiltr
Budweiser Budvar has launched a rebrand of its unfiltered and unpasteurised lager Kraüsened, renaming it Budvar Nefiltr, The Drinks Business reported on April 6.

The Czech beer Budvar Nefiltr, which blends mature and fresh batches to create a hazy, unfiltered 4% ABV lager, is set to be sold in the UK exclusively on draught.

According to Budweiser Budvar, the rebrand better reflects brewery’s Czech origins and amplifies in its mission to build the reputation of the Czech Republic as one of “the world’s great beer cultures”.

The name Nefiltr is also intended to highlight the beer’s unfiltered nature and set Nefiltr apart from Budvar’s core family of Czech lagers.

Budweiser Budvar UK managing director Jitka Vlčková said: “The 4% category has shown significant growth in recent years as drinkers look to enjoy the great flavour of beer without the higher alcohol content. At Budvar, we use the same four ingredients as we do for our Original, Dark and Nealko lagers: whole-cone Saaz hops from Žatec; natural, soft water from our own artesian well; Czech malting barley from Moravia; and our heritage strain of yeast. However, it is the absence of filtration that is the key to a premium, full-flavoured lager.”

Vlčková explained: “With Budvar Nefiltr, ...More info on site

Brewery news Spain: Damm becomes Spain’s first brewery to ‘go green’
Damm becomes the first Spanish brewery to ‘go green’ after joining the RE100 initiative, which promotes the use of 100 per cent green energy by the world’s most influential companies. Damm produces Estrella which is an extremely popular Spanish beer, the Euro Weekly News reported on April 8.

The announcement made by the company on Thursday, April 7, stated that 100 per cent of the electricity purchased at all Damm’s production and packaging centres and warehouses is certified as renewable energy – making it the national brewery with the largest renewable electricity generation capacity.

“Damm has joined the RE100, the global initiative that brings together the most important companies in the world that have shown their commitment to the use of 100 per cent renewable energy,” a statement read. “This reaffirms our commitment to sustainability by being the first Spanish brewery to join this initiative.”

“This is a milestone achieved by the brewing company and takes place within the framework of Damm’s commitment to promote the achievement of SDG 7, whose ultimate goal is to increase energy from renewable sources, in addition to promoting energy efficiency technologies.”

Damm’s director of energy and environmental optimisation, Juan Antonio López Abadia, said: “At Damm, we work daily ...More info on site

Hops news Russia: Russian brewers ask government to help in replacing imported hops
Russian brewers have asked the agriculture ministry to help them find ways to replace imported hops in the next few years as they fear shortages, the Kommersant newspaper reported on April 8.

Hops are an essential flavouring ingredient and Russian-owned brewers import 98% of the 7,000–7,500 tonnes they use every year, mainly from Germany, the Czech Republic and the United States.

Russia's domestic brewers could also face higher demand as European rivals Carlsberg and Heineken have announced plans to exit the Russian market.

Most Russian-owned firms had enough hops to last them a few months, but would run into serious problems in summer if supplies were disrupted, the Russian Union of Brewers said in a letter seen by Kommersant.

The union asked the government to support the establishment of local production, although the process is likely to take some time.

The Association of Russian Hops Producers estimates that it would need more than 500 million roubles ($6.4 million) in annual state subsidies for 3-5 years to increase production to 1,000 tonnes by 2030, the newspaper said.
