0 Australia: Lion Nathan still in battle for Coopers

If the Lion Nathan, which is still fighting to make a hostile takeover of Coopers brewery will be blocked from doing this, there were still other companies that could be interested in acquiring Coopers shares a court heard on October 3, according to Asia Pulse.

Lion Nathan is seeking an injunction from the Federal Court of Australia to stop a Coopers shareholders meeting on October 20 from considering a resolution removing Lion Nathan's pre-emptive rights to buy Coopers shares.

The Coopers constitution states that the shares up for sale must first be offered to another Coopers shareholder, secondly to AMP or any other Coopers employee superannuation fund, and thirdly to Lion Nathan. Lion Nathan has launched a $A352 million ($US267.94 million) takeover bid for Coopers at $260 per Coopers share, which has been rejected by the Coopers board.

Legal counsel for Coopers, Dick Whitington, said the court that there were "other players" in the market, who were not brewers, who were potential bidders for Coopers shares but they were being deterred by Lion Nathan's "gatekeeper role".

0 UK & Japan: Kent-based brewer Shepherd Neame is to produce beer for the largest brewer in Japan

The Asahi deal follows two years of talks and was unveiled as Shepherd Neame brewer announced results for its 30th consecutive year of profit growth on October 4. But the brewer saw beer sales fall in volume by 2.6%, partly because of its refusal to sell Spitfire at lower prices to JD Wetherspoon.

The report on Tuesday said the company was "not prepared to reduce prices of Spitfire to maintain volumes". However sales of draught Spitfire to other customers increased by 10.5%, figures for the year showed.

Chief executive Jonathan Neame said the firm's core brands, including Spitfire were "performing well", and Asahi Super Dry was "an important addition" to the Shepherd Neame portfolio. In a final chairman's statement, Robert Neame said: "The brewery can rightly be proud of having licensed brewing agreements for premium brands with international brewing companies in India, Japan, China, Germany and Holland."

Mr Neame is standing down as chairman at the company's annual meeting, but plans to stay as a non-executive director until the end of June 2006. The company claims to be Britain's oldest brewer, dating back to 1698, and has 367 pubs in London and across the South East.
