Brewery news USA: Constellation Brands’ beer business continues to grow despite market disruptions
Constellation Brands posted on October 1 a 4% decline in net sales for its second quarter ended in August. For its fiscal first half, the company’s sales were down 5% to $4.2 billion; however, operating profit remained positive, rising 8% to $1.4 billion.

Constellation’s beer business has continued to grow despite market disruptions this year, with depletions up 5% for the second quarter, as “strong performance in off-premise channels continues to more than offset the Covid-19 related impact of the nearly 50% reduction in the on-premise channel.” In particular, the Corona family of brands grew by double-digits in the second quarter, boosted by the launch of Corona Hard Seltzer and robust gains for Corona Premier and Corona Extra. Modelo Especial depletions increased 9%.

On the wine and spirits side, net sales fell 9% organically to $625 million in the second quarter, but operating income increased 1% to $162 million. Driving the profit growth were higher-margin premium brands like Kim Crawford, Meiomi, and The Prisoner Brand Family, which rose by double-digits. Constellation says its billion-dollar sale of a host of wine brands to E.&J. Gallo is now expected to close in its fiscal third quarter ending in November.

Brewery news USA: AB InBev and Craft Brew Alliance finalize merger
Anheuser-Busch InBev and Portland, Oregon-based Craft Brew Alliance on September 30 announced that AB InBev's buyout of the Portland, Oregon-based craft brewer has been finalized, the St. Louis Business Journal reported.

In November, Anheuser-Busch agreed to acquire the remaining shares in Craft Brew Alliance (CBA) that it didn't already own, which was 31.2% at the time, and agreed to pay $16.50 per share in cash for the remaining shares. Reuters valued the deal at $321 million.

Earlier this month, the companies entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice they called “an important next step" toward closing their expanded partnership. The deal came after CBA shareholders' February approval of the partnership and CBA and AB InBev’s decision to sell CBA’s Kona Brewing operations in Hawaii to PV Brewing Partners, which counts as an investor Dave Peacock, former AB InBev president and current Schnuck Markets president and COO.

Effective September 30, CBA's portfolio of brands and breweries will join Anheuser-Busch's Brewers Collective group of craft brewing partners, officials said. "Kona Brewing Co.'s mainland and international operations and regional brands Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Cisco Brewers, Omission Brewing Co., Redhook Brewery, Square Mile Cider Co., Widmer Brothers Brewing, and Wynwood Brewing Co. will further ...More info on site

Brewery news The Philippines: San Miguel Corp. secures regulator approval to issue P20-billion preferred shares
San Miguel Corp. has obtained regulatory approval to issue P20-billion preferred shares under a shelf registration program, BusinessWorld Online reported on October 1.

In a statement on September 30, the Securities and Exchange Commission said it accepted the registration statement of San Miguel to offer up to 533.33 million preferred shares in a three-year period.

From the allocation, San Miguel will initially offer 133.33 million Series 2 preferred shares, which will have an oversubscription option of 133.33 million shares, priced at a maximum of P75 each.

The offer is expected to generate P19.89 billion in net proceeds, which the company will use to support infrastructure projects such as the P734-billion Bulacan airport and the P62.7-billion Metro Rail Transit Line 7. It will also be used for general corporate purposes.

San Miguel filed its application for the shelf registration of up to P40-billion preferred shares in August, where P20-billion shares make up the first tranche.

It tapped BDO Capital & Investment Corp., BPI Capital Corp., China Bank Capital Corp., Philippine Commercial Capital Inc., PNB Capital and Investment Corp., RCBC Capital Corp., and SB Capital Investment Corp. as joint issue managers, lead underwriters, and bookrunners for the offering.

In the first semester of 2020, the company booked an ...More info on site

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news UK: Grain harvest completed across most of the UK
Harvest has now reached completion across most of the UK, especially in Central and Southern regions. After a stormy period at the end of August, the weather has been calmer with less rainfall in mid-September allowing some respite for farmers to finish up their harvests and begin early drilling, AHDB reported on October 1.

According to the 5th AHDB harvest report, based on 98% completion, estimated yields for winter wheat are 7.1 -7.3t/ha and winter barley yields are estimated at 6.5 – 6.7 t/ha. These are both back on the five year averages (8.4t/ha and 7.1t/ha). Spring barley yields are predicted around 5.8 – 6.1 t/ha based on 97% completion, largely on par with the five year average.

Barley remains in large supply in the UK, with a considerable exportable surplus despite some of the yield pressures realised in this year’s winter barley crop. With barley operating at export parity, prices are being pressured and the relatively bearish outlook for domestic prices persists.
