1 Russia: Report on the Russian beer market as totals of the Q3 of 2005

According to the totals of the third quarter of 2005, the growth in beer production in comparison with the same period of the last year has amounted to 4.6%, and the total score for the entire 2005 per branch will make up, according to our prognosis, not more than 5 % , stated the Association of Russian Brewers in its report elaborated with the participation of Business Analytica Company and is based on data related to the status and development of the Russian beer market.

The results of the third quarter afford ground for assuming that the further growth of the Russian brewing market will be within the limits of 5-7 %, and may be characterized as being "steadily moderated". As main reference point of the market development shall serve the industrial parameters of the basic players - the largest manufacturers which produce approximately 80 % of product release. However, in opinion of experts unforeseen jumps and falling of rates of development of the entire brewing branch are not excluded. Thus, the observed increase in production according to the results of 8 months of 2005 in comparison with the similar period of 2004 has amounted to 4.6 % while in 2004 ...

0 Australia: Coopers secures important legal victory in its takeover war with Lion Nathan

Coopers Brewery Ltd. scored on November 18 a major victory in its battle to fend off a hostile takeover bid by Lion Nathan Ltd. when a Melbourne court moved to allow an extraordinary general meeting of the target's shareholders to proceed, Dow Jones announced on November 18.

In a decision that threatens to derail Lion Nathan's A$352 million offer, the Federal Court judge Alan Goldberg discharged a temporary injunction against the planned Coopers meeting, subject to agreed undertakings to the company's shareholder documents. The privately-owned Coopers plans to hold the meeting on Nov. 29 to vote on changes to the company's constitution to remove Lion Nathan's existing pre-emptive rights to buy shares and effectively prevent Lion Nathan from owning Coopers shares.

The justice Goldberg ordered Coopers to provide more information to its shareholders on a valuation from the company's auditor KPMG. In September, Lion Nathan bid A$260 a share for Coopers. KPMG subsequently valued Coopers shares at A$190 apiece in the absence of the Lion Nathan offer, while independent expert Grant Samuel has put a value on Coopers of between A$284 and A$320 a share.

Beforeof the court decision, some analysts suggested that Lion Nathan is unlikely to secure a ...

0 USA: An advertising battle in the USA beer market is brewing

USA’s beer maker, Miller Brewing Co., a subsidiary of SABMiller Plc, said on November 15 that several cable networks pulled new Miller ads on complaints by rival Anheuser-Busch Co. Inc., the largest U.S. brewer, according to Reuters news. "They (Anheuser-Busch) made calls to just about every cable network that they analyze their decision to run the Miller spots," Miller spokesman Peter Marino said.

The Miller spots, launched on November 11, claim that despite a change in Anheuser-Busch's Bud Light, Miller Lite still has more taste.

Anheuser-Busch said that it hasn't changed the formula for Bud Light, the top-selling light beer in the United States, but added that its brew masters constantly make small adjustments for seasonal changes in raw ingredients.

Several cable networks have temporarily placed the Miller spots on hold and asked the company to provide substantiation for the claim, Miller said, adding that it was providing the requested substantiation.

Anheuser-Busch responded to what it felt were negative ads by Miller, an Anheuser-Busch executive said. "We addressed this directly in a way that was most appropriate," Douglas Muhleman, group vice president at Anheuser-Busch, said in a faxed response. "We saw negative advertising that included our product, and we were in the best position ...
