    Pub owner Marston's and Carlsberg UK brew up a beer joint venture

    Marston's, which has had to shut all its pubs due to the coronavirus crisis, said the partnership values its brewing business at up to 580 million pounds ($706.03 million) and Carlsberg UK's brewing business at 200 million pounds. Carlsberg Marston's Brewing Company, the joint venture, would deliver annual cost savings of around 24 million pounds, expected by the end of the third year following the completion of the deal, Marston's said.

    Carlsberg Bolsters U.K. Presence With Marston’s Brewing Venture

    (Bloomberg) -- Carlsberg A/S stepped up the challenge to rivals Anheuser-Busch InBev NV and Heineken NV in the U.K. by forming a joint venture with pub operator Marston’s Plc to pool ownership of their brewing assets.The Danish brewer will own a 60% stake in Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Co., with Marston’s owning the rest and receiving a cash payment of as much as 273 million pounds ($330 million), the companies said Friday. The deal values Marston’s brewing assets, which include the Hobgoblin and Lancaster Bomber brands, at 580 million pounds, and Carlsberg’s U.K. brewing assets at 200 million pounds.“The joint venture’s brand portfolio will allow us to offer a significantly stronger beer portfolio to our U.K. customers,” Carlsberg Chief Executive Officer Cees ‘t Hart said in a statement.Even before the coronavirus outbreak, U.K. pubs were struggling. The lockdown and the prospect of continued social distancing when they reopen have left watering holes with an uncertain future. Big brewers, meanwhile, have been under pressure from the rise of craft beer and weak consumption trends in developed markets.The deal is the latest transaction in the U.K. hospitality sector seeing pub operators take a step back from their brewing operations to focus on running their bars. Last year, pub owner Fuller, Smith & Turner Plc sold all of its brewing assets to Japanese beermaker Asahi Group Holdings Ltd.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    RPT-Tumbling pound, virus strategy, Brexit fears lead to heavy slide in UK domestic stocks

    A falling currency, doubts about the UK government's response to the coronavirus crisis and fresh fears of leaving the European Union without a trade deal are prompting investors to ditch shares of companies exposed to the local economy. The FTSE 250 index, home to mid-sized UK stocks, has sharply underperformed British blue chips and other major European bourses since the coronavirus broke out. The index has fallen by 43% from its Feb. 19 peak, compared with a 33% drop for the FTSE 100 index and 36% for the pan-European STOXX 600.

    UK pub, restaurant owners eye debt waivers to ride out virus crisis

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday essentially shut down social life in Britain and ordered the most vulnerable to isolate for 12 weeks, as the country steps up efforts to stem the spread of the virus. Marston's, whose shares have lost 80% of their value in less than a month, said it was unlikely to pay an interim dividend and was in talks with its banking group about the option of waivers for its debt covenants. Restaurant Group, down similarly as the crisis spread this month to Europe, said it was working with its lenders to have covenants waived throughout 2020.

    Marston's braces for "significant" sales hit, unlikely to pay dividend

    Pub operator Marston's said on Wednesday it was now unlikely to recommend an interim dividend and was in discussions to have the option of having debt covenants waived later this year as it prepared for a major hit to sales from the coronavirus shutdown. Marston's, a two-century old brewer known for its Pedigree, Hobgoblin and Lancaster Bomber beers, said it was unable to quantify the impact from the virus on its financial performance but said it expected to cut its forecasts for fiscal year 2020.
