0 Czech Republic: Budvar could be partially privatized

A privatization tender for Budejovicky Budvar, the last major Czech brewery in state hands, could be prepared in roughly one year and could bring more than CZK 20 bln into state coffers, according to Interfax News Agency, April 10.

The announcement followed a Friday statement that the government would take the first step toward the lucrative brewery's privatizations by changing its legal status to that of a joint-stock company. "It doesn’t necessarily need to be a 100% sale - it could be a partial privatization," Agriculture Minister Petr Gandalovic said.

In a prepared statement Friday following a meeting with the brewer's management at which Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek was also in attendance, Gandalovic said the government wants to begin the transformation of Budvar to a joint-stock company "so that there is space for further development of the brewer, regardless of its ownership." Gandalovic added that Budvar's eventual privatization should be preceded by the settlement of legal protection of Budvar's trademarks, a reference to several dozen legal disputes being fought in courts throughout the world with ...

0 UK: SABMiller considers making $12.8 billion bid for rival Scottish & Newcastle

UK-based brewing giant SABMiller Plc is considering making 712 pence per share takeover bid for rival Scottish & Newcastle, Sunday Express said, according to Reuters, April 9.

The maker of Miller Lite and Peroni is plotting to acquire rival Scottish & Newcastle in a 6.5-billion-pounds ($12.8 billion) deal.

Quoting unnamed sources, the newspaper mentioned that SABmiller could make a £6.5 billion bid for its rival in the next few days. The newspaper said that in case of a successful deal, SABMiller plans to sell Scottish & Newcastle's UK and French business interests to spirits giant Diageo Plc. JP Morgan Chase is advising SABmiller on the deal, the paper stated.

0 China: Chongqing Brewery expects a 50% jump in Q1

Chongqing Brewery Co., Scottish & Newcastle Plc's partner in China, said it expected to post a jump in first-quarter net profit of more than 50 percent, on higher sales, Reuters reported April 11.

Mid-sized Chongqing Brewery, based in southwest China, also attributed the higher unaudited profit forecast to an adjustment of its product portfolio, it said in a brief statement.

In the first quarter of 2006, the brewer booked a net profit of 13.43 million yuan ($1.74 million), up 63 percent from a year earlier.

Publicly traded companies in China are required to issue earnings projection if they expect net profit to rise by more than 50 percent.

0 World: Barley shortage to sharpen

World barley supplies are forecasted to fall to an 11-year-low by July, Barron's Online reported April 7.

"The market is totally dry of barley," Heineken's CEO Jean-Francois van Boxmeer said in late February, when the company released its yearly results. The shortage has pushed European Union malting-barley cash-market prices up 80% in the past 12 months. Prices also jumped in other major producing nations, including the U.S., Canada and Australia.

With global weather patterns becoming more volatile, droughts may increase, industry experts say. Additionally, the greater focus on biofuels to curb auto emissions is leading to a competition for cultivable land, including area seeded for malting barley. A severe drought slashed Australia's 2006 harvest by 60%, and amid President Bush's biofuel push, U.S. barley acreage harvested last year sank to its lowest level since 1885.

Steve Edwardson, executive director of the North Dakota Barley Council, says that corn and soybeans are pushing into traditional barley-growing areas due to attractive prices and improved, northern growing-zone versions of the crops. North Dakota is the largest barley-producing state, with up to 90% of its crop targeted for malt. Rising demand for biofuels crops gives EU farmers more planting choices, says Marieke de Rijke, barley analyst with ...
