Heineken acquires Krusovice Brewery in Czech Republic

Relateret indhold

Amsterdam, 14 June 2007 - Heineken N.V. announced today the

acquisition of Krusovice Brewery in the Czech Republic from

Radeberger Gruppe KG. As a result of this transaction, the market

share of Heineken in the Czech Republic will increase to 8%, with

total volumes of over 1.6 million hectolitres, improving Heineken's

position in the market to number three.

The transaction, which will be funded from existing cash resources,

is expected to be earnings enhancing in 2008 and value enhancing in

2010. The proposed acquisition will be submitted to the relevant

competition authorities and is expected to be completed by 1

September 2007. Under the terms of the transaction, the acquisition

price is not disclosed.

The Royal Brewery of Krusovice was founded in 1517, is situated

around 70 km west of Prague and employs 300 staff. The brewery has a

portfolio in the premium segment of the market, with the main

Krusovice brand, one of the oldest Czech beer brands, and five

variants, Svetle, Musketyr, Imperial, Cerne and Jubilejní. The state

of the art Krusovice Brewery is profitable. In 2006, sales volumes

were 700,000 hectolitres. Production capacity is 1 million

hectoliters with the possibility to expand. The domestic market share

is almost 3%.

Nico Nusmeier, Regional President Central and Eastern Europe of

Heineken N.V., commented: "This acquisition strengthens our base and

provides a strong opportunity to accelerate top-line growth in the

Czech market. The Krusovice brand is very popular among local

consumers and we are confident that with appropriate commercial

investment, this brand has clear potential to grow. In addition, we

plan to further extend the excellent export position of the Krusovice

brand by leveraging the reputation of Czech beers, particularly in

Central and Eastern Europe. The brewery's proximity to the city of

Prague represents potential to further grow the Heineken brand."

Heineken currently owns Starobrno Brewery in the Czech Republic, with

production facilities in Brno and Znojmo in the South Moravia region.

The brewery brews Starobrno, Hostan and Zlaty Bazant brands and

imports Heineken. The brewery has a domestic market share of more

than 5%.

The Czech beer market, one of Europe's reference beer markets and

profitable, has been stable for years. Annual consumption is

currently estimated at 16 million hectoliters. In 2006, Czech per

capita consumption was 159 litres per year, the highest in the world.
