0 Colombia & UK: SABMiller to become the world’s second largest brewer after acquisition of Bavaria

About 98 % of London-based SABMiller's shareholders gave an ok for the deal, which makes SABMiller the world's second-largest brewer behind Belgium's InBev, and bumps St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. to third place. SABMiller acquired a 71.8% stake in South American brewer Bavaria in a deal valued at US$7.8 billion (50.7 billion rand at the current exchange rate), SABMiller stated.

Bavaria is the second-largest brewer in South America, with a 79 % or more market share in Panama, Ecuador, Peru and Colombia. Its brands include Aguila, Cristal, Pilsener and Atlas. Bavaria also produces water, juices, soft drinks and milk.

London-based SABMiller said the deal would further diversify its existing businesses and brands in attractive growth markets. The brewer already has operations in El Salvador and Honduras, but those markets are difficult because of their weak economies and high fuel prices, reports said.

SABMiller has submitted on October 7 to the Financial Services Authority a prospectus relating to the new SABMiller shares to be issued pursuant to the major transaction in South America which was announced on 19 July 2005, and which was approved by the shareholders of SABMiller at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 7 ...

0 Australia: Lion Nathan secures injunction to stop the shareholders’ meeting at Coopers

The brewer Lion Nathan said it has secured an injunction stopping its takeover target, Coopers Brewery, from holding a shareholders' meeting later this month to consider a resolution removing Lion Nathan's pre-emptive rights to buy Coopers shares, AFX communicated on October 11.

The move follows Lion Nathan, launching a A$ 352 mln hostile takeover bid for Coopers last month at A$ 260 per share, which Coopers has rejected. Federal Court Justice Alan Goldberg granted on October 10 an injunction stopping the October 20 meeting of Coopers shareholders going ahead.

Goldberg specified that if Coopers promptly presented a more comprehensive explanatory memorandum to shareholders, the meeting may be able to proceed on October 20. Under the Coopers constitution, Coopers 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 argues that if Coopers shareholders vote in favour of the resolution to remove Lion Nathan's pre-emptive rights, they will effectively put an end to the takeover offer.

So far Lion Nathan states that it has obtained agreements from 11 of Coopers' 117 shareholders wanting to sell their shares in the South Australian brewer. In its ...

0 Canada: AAFC estimates increased Canadian barley supply and exports

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) released a report on October 7 according to which the barley production is estimated to fall by 8% from 2004-05, as a result of lower area and yields. Total supply, however, is projected to increase slightly due to high carry-in stocks which resulted from the large production of low-quality barley in 2004-05. The quality of the 2005-06 crop is estimated to be below normal. Exports are forecast to rise by 34% due to higher feed barley exports. Carry-out stocks are expected to drop significantly, returning to a near-normal level. The off-Board feed barley price is forecast to decline slightly. Malting barley prices will be pressured by higher world production, with the CWB PRO for Special Select 2-Row down by C$8/t from 2004-05 at C$171/t.
