Anheuser-Busch InBev reports Third Quarter 2013

Except where otherwise stated, the comments below are based on organic growth figures and refer to 3Q13 and 9M13 versus the same period of last year. For important disclaimers please refer to pages 2/3.

HIGHLIGHTS

 

    Revenue growth: Revenue grew by 3.0% in 3Q13 and by 2.8% in 9M13, with revenue per hl growth of 4.2% in 3Q13 and 5.1% in 9M13. On a constant geographic basis (i.e. eliminating the impact of faster growth in countries with lower revenue per hl) revenue per hl grew by 4.9% in 3Q13 and by 5.7% in 9M13

 

    Volume performance: Total volumes in 3Q13 declined by 1.3%, with own beer volumes decreasing by 1.4%, while non-beer volumes declined by 0.8%. In 9M13, total volumes declined by 2.1%, with own beer volumes down 2.0% and non-beer volumes down 3.2%

 

    Focus Brands: Our Focus Brands volumes grew 0.3% in 3Q13, with our global brands up 5.0%, led by global Budweiser, which grew by 8.1%. Global volumes (excluding the US) of our new flagship brand Corona grew by 3.7% in the quarter

 

    Cost of Sales: Cost of Sales (CoS) decreased by 1.2% in 3Q13, and by 0.3% on a per hl basis, benefiting from synergies captured in Mexico. In 9M13, CoS grew by 1.3%, and by 3.6% on a per hl basis. On a constant geographic basis, CoS per hl increased by 1.2% in 3Q13 and by 5.0% in 9M13

 

    Cost Synergies: Approximately 250 million USD of cost synergies have been captured in the four months since the closing of the combination with Grupo Modelo on 4 June 2013. In addition, the Grupo Modelo management team delivered approximately 75 million USD prior to the closing. We remain on track to achieve our commitment of 1 billion USD of cost synergies by the end of 2016

 

    EBITDA: EBITDA grew by 10.5% in 3Q13 to 4 664 million USD, with a margin expansion of 274 bps to 39.8%. This performance was driven by solid revenue per hectoliter growth, good cost discipline and the capture of cost synergies linked to the Grupo Modelo combination. In 9M13, EBITDA grew by 6.1% to 11 989 million USD with a margin of 38.1%, an improvement of 117 bps

 

    Net finance costs: Net finance costs (excl. non-recurring net finance costs) were 562 million USD in the quarter, compared to 680 million USD in 3Q12

 

    Non-recurring net finance income was 170 million USD in 3Q13, due mainly to mark-to-market gains on the hedging of 99% of our equity exposure related to the shares to be delivered in the next five years to some Grupo Modelo shareholders as part of a transaction related to the combination with Grupo Modelo

 

    Income taxes: Income tax expense in 3Q13 was 699 million USD, with a normalized effective tax rate (ETR) of 21.3%, compared to an income tax expense of 456 million USD in 3Q12 and a normalized ETR of 17.2%. The increase in the normalized ETR in 3Q13 mainly results from a change in country mix. The normalized ETR in 9M13 was 18.1% compared to 15.6% in 9M12

 

    Profit: Normalized profit attributable to equity holders of AB InBev increased in nominal terms to 2 205 million USD in 3Q13 from 1 843 million USD in 3Q12. Normalized profit attributable to equity holders of AB InBev increased in nominal terms to 5 562 million USD in 9M13 from 5 429 million USD in 9M12

 

    Earnings per share (EPS): Normalized EPS grew 17.2% in nominal terms to 1.36 USD in 3Q13 from 1.16 USD in 3Q12, driven by growth of the underlying business and the combination with Grupo Modelo, including the cost synergies, despite the significant FX translation headwinds. Normalized EPS was 3.45 USD in 9M13 compared with 3.40 USD in 9M12

 

    Interim Dividend: The AB InBev Board has approved an interim dividend of 0.60 EUR per share for the fiscal year 2013. The shares will trade ex-coupon as of 13 November 2013 and dividends will be payable as from 18 November 2013. The record date will be 15 November 2013

AB InBev’s 3Q13 and 3Q12, and 9M13 and 9M12 reported numbers are based on unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. Unless otherwise indicated, amounts are presented in million USD.

To facilitate the understanding of AB InBev’s underlying performance, the analyses of growth, including all comments in this press release, unless otherwise indicated, are based on organic growth and normalized numbers. In other words, financials are analyzed eliminating the impact of changes in currencies on translation of foreign operations, and scope changes. Scope changes represent the impact of acquisitions and divestitures, the start or termination of activities or the transfer of activities between segments, curtailment gains and losses and year over year changes in accounting estimates and other assumptions that management does not consider as part of the underlying performance of the business.

All references per hectoliter (per hl) exclude US non-beer activities. To eliminate the effect of geographic mix, i.e. the impact of stronger volume growth coming from countries with lower revenue per hl, and lower Cost of Sales per hl, we are also presenting, where specified, organic growth per hectoliter figures on a constant geographic basis. When we make estimations on a constant geographic basis, we assume each country in which we operate accounts for the same percentage of our global volume as in the same period of the previous year.

Whenever presented in this document, all performance measures (EBITDA, EBIT, profit, tax rate, EPS) are presented on a “normalized” basis, which means they are presented before non-recurring items. Non-recurring items are either income or expenses which do not occur regularly as part of the normal activities of the Company. They are presented separately because they are important for the understanding of the underlying sustainable performance of the Company due to their size or nature. Normalized measures are additional measures used by management, and should not replace the measures determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company’s performance. Values in the figures and annexes may not add up, due to rounding.

Given the transformational nature of the transaction with Grupo Modelo, and to facilitate the understanding of AB InBev’s underlying performance, AB InBev has updated its 2012 segment reporting for purposes of our results announcement and internal review by senior management. This presentation (referred to as the “2012 Reference Base”) includes, for comparative purposes, the results of Grupo Modelo as if the combination had taken place on 4 June 2012. Following the combination, the Grupo Modelo operations are reported according to their geographical presence in the following segments: the Mexico beer and packaging businesses are reported in the new Zone Mexico, the Spanish business is reported in the Zone Western Europe and the Export business is reported in the Global Export and Holding Companies segment.

Effective 1 January 2013, the revised IFRS standard “IAS 19 Employee Benefits” has become effective. Under the revised standard, AB InBev presents the net pension interest cost as part of the net finance cost. IAS 19 Employee Benefits requires retrospective application. Accordingly, the 2012 comparative figures have been adjusted as if IAS 19 Revised had always applied.

Effective 1 January 2013, we transferred management responsibility for Ecuador and Peru to Latin America South. These countries were previously reported within Latin America North. The 2012 Latin America South and Latin America North results have been adjusted for comparative purposes.

3Q13 and 9M13 EPS is based upon weighted average of 1 613 million shares compared to 1 599 million shares for 3Q12 and 9M12.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTS

We are not satisfied with our top line performance in 2013 which continues to be impacted by macroeconomic headwinds in a number of our markets. However, we remain focused on what we can impact and influence and on doing the right things to build a healthy business for the long term. We have an unrivalled portfolio of global premium brands, supported by strong local brands, and our plans are in place for a fast start in 2014. As always, it is our people that will make the difference and they are ready for the opportunities and challenges ahead of them.

It is five months since we closed the combination with Grupo Modelo and the integration of our two businesses is going extremely well. Our new colleagues quickly embraced the AB InBev culture and ways of working, which has allowed us to implement our integration plan and to start delivering cost synergies much quicker than originally expected.

Moving to the financial results, our total revenues grew by 3.0% in 3Q13, driven by revenue per hl growth of 4.2% from revenue management initiatives and brand mix. Volumes of our Focus Brands grew by 0.3% in 3Q13, ahead of total own beer volumes which declined by 1.4%. Within our Focus Brands portfolio, our global brands grew 5.0% led by Budweiser, which grew by 8.1% on a global basis, with strong growth in China, Brazil and the United Kingdom. Our new flagship brand, Corona, grew 3.7% in the quarter, due to strong performances in Mexico and the brand’s main export markets outside the US.

Consolidated EBITDA grew by 10.5% in 3Q13 with margin expansion of 274 bps, driven by solid revenue per hectoliter growth, good cost discipline and the capture of cost synergies from the Grupo Modelo combination.

Normalized profit attributable to equity holders of AB InBev increased by 19.6% compared to 3Q12, driven by EBITDA growth and lower net finance costs as a result of mark-to-market gains linked to the hedging of our equity exposures and reported in other financial results, partly offset by higher income tax expense. Normalized earnings per share increased by 17.2% compared to 3Q12, to 1.36 USD per share.


 

PRESS RELEASE

Brussels, 31 October 2013 – 4 / 25

   LOGO

 

In February 2013, we announced the decision to move to semi-annual dividend payments, starting with dividends for fiscal year 2013. This change will allow us to manage cash flow more efficiently throughout the year by matching dividend payments more closely with operating cash flow generation. The Board has now approved an interim dividend of 0.60 EUR per share for the fiscal year 2013. The shares will trade ex-coupon as of 13 November 2013 and dividends will be payable as from 18 November 2013. The record date will be 15 November 2013.

Turning to performance in our top markets:

In the United States:

Volume

 

    We estimate that industry selling day adjusted sales-to-retailers (STRs) declined by 1.0% in 3Q13 and by 2.2% in 9M13. Industry volumes in the quarter benefited from more favorable weather and reduced pressure on consumer disposable income, continuing the improving trend that we have seen since the end of February. We are confident about the long term growth potential for the industry, although labor participation and unemployment rates among young adult males remain a concern

 

    Our own selling day adjusted STRs decreased by 2.7% in 3Q13 and by 3.3% in 9M13, with the third quarter being partly impacted by the timing of our price increase. The price increase took effect on 30 September 2013, although in certain markets this was delayed until the start of November as a result of local market conditions. Consequently, some of the retail buy-in in advance of the price increase occurred in the fourth quarter this year compared to the third quarter last year. We estimate that our STR volumes in 4Q13 should benefit from this timing difference

 

    Our reported sales-to-wholesalers (STWs) declined by 1.9% in 3Q13 and by 2.8% in 9M13

Revenue Management

 

    US beer-only revenue per hl remains strong, growing by 3.2% in the quarter and by 3.7% in 9M13. Brand mix contributed 100 bps to this growth, with the main driver being Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita. Brand mix contributed 130 bps in 9M13

 

    On 30 September 2013 we implemented a net price increase of approximately 3%. The amount and precise timing of the increase varies by brand, package and state, with some increases being implemented at the start of November, as mentioned above

Commercial Strategy and Brands

 

    We estimate that our total market share declined by approximately 80 bps in 3Q13 and by 60 bps in 9M13. The decline in the quarter was driven in part by a share loss of approximately 35 bps from our sub-premium brands, as a result of our strategy of narrowing the price gap between our premium and sub-premium brands. We also saw share loss versus 3Q12 linked to the timing of our price increase which resulted in some retail buy-in being delayed until 4Q13. We expect to recover this volume in October 2013. We expect the trend of our year to date estimated share loss at the end of October to be in line with our share loss reported for the first half of the year of approximately 45 bps

 

    We estimate that the Bud Light family lost approximately 25 bps of market share in 3Q13, with Bud Light gaining share of the premium light segment in the quarter, based on our estimates. A decline in STRs for the Bud Light brand of 3.3% was partly offset by strong growth from Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita and Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita, with the Ritas achieving a combined market share of 0.8% in 3Q13, based on STRs. Bud Light Lime Cran-Brrr-Rita, a seasonal addition to the Rita family of brands, is planned for launch in November before Thanksgiving. Bud Light Platinum maintained its market share on a sequential basis, based on our estimates


 

PRESS RELEASE

Brussels, 31 October 2013 – 5 / 25

   LOGO

 

    We estimate that market share for the Budweiser family was marginally down in 3Q13, with Budweiser Black Crown partly offsetting a share decline in Budweiser. Budweiser performance continues to improve, supported in recent weeks by the Budweiser Made in America music festival and Major League Baseball activations

 

    Michelob Ultra and our high end brands continue to gain share according to our estimates

 

    Our innovation pipeline in the US remains strong. It includes not only new liquids but a greater focus on packaging such as the recently launched re-sealable 16oz aluminum bottle, which we expect will provide a functional benefit to consumers. The new 25oz can also delivers added value to the consumer, offering more liquid for the same price as our traditional 24oz can. The 24oz can is being discontinued

 

    EBITDA margin in the US grew by approximately 80 bps in 3Q13 and 20 bps in 9M13 driven by savings in cost of sales and distribution expenses, as well as a strong revenue per hl performance.

In Mexico:

Integration and synergies

 

    The integration continues to progress very well. In the four months since the closing of the combination with Grupo Modelo on 4 June 2013, approximately 250 million USD of cost synergies have been captured. Of this amount, approximately 210 million USD was delivered in 3Q13 and approximately 40 million USD in 2Q13. In addition, the Grupo Modelo management team delivered approximately 75 million USD of cost savings prior to the closing, as a result of best practice sharing. The total of synergies captured to date is therefore approximately 325 million USD of which approximately 300 million USD has been captured in the Mexico zone, with the remaining approximate 25 million USD being reported within Global Export & Holding Companies (GEHC).

 

    We remain committed to delivering 1 billion USD of cost synergies before the end of 2016, with the majority of these savings coming by the end of 2015. We continue to expect approximately 40-45% of the synergies to be delivered in Cost of Sales, with the remaining 55-60% coming from operating expenses. We also remain on track to deliver 500 million USD of working capital savings in the first two years after closing

Volume

 

    Mexican beer industry volumes remained under pressure in 3Q13, with our own volumes down by 2.3% in the quarter. This industry performance was due to weak economic growth and the impact of severe hurricanes and tropical storms in various states along the Mexican coastline in September. The economy currently remains soft, with low levels of inflation and unemployment. We continue to be confident about the long-term growth potential of Mexico and our own business

Revenue Management

 

    Domestic beer only revenue per hl in Mexico grew by 6.1% in 3Q13 due to our revenue management initiatives

In Brazil:

Volume

 

    The beer industry in Brazil has been under pressure all year, driven by a weak economy and a challenging consumer environment. Food inflation has eased considerably in recent months but is still ahead of the general level of inflation, and continues to put pressure on the disposable income of our core consumer. However, we have remained focused on our commercial strategy and delivered solid revenue per hl and EBITDA growth in the quarter


 

PRESS RELEASE

Brussels, 31 October 2013 – 6 / 25

   LOGO

 

    We estimate beer industry volumes in Brazil declined by 4.3% in 3Q13. Our own beer volumes declined by 5.0% in the quarter and by 4.7% in 9M13. We estimate that our average market share for the quarter was 68.0%, which represents a sequential loss of only 10 bps, while market share declined by 50 bps versus 3Q12, mainly due to a tough comparable

 

    Our expectations for Brazil beer industry volume growth in FY13 remain unchanged. However, based on the 3Q13 results, we expect industry volume growth in FY13 to be at the lower end of the range provided in our guidance of flat to low single digit decline

Revenue Management

 

    Our beer revenue per hl grew by 6.0% in 3Q13 and by 8.1% in 9M13. This was driven by our revenue management initiatives, higher own distribution and improved premium mix. We continue to expect revenue per hl to grow by high single digits in FY13

Commercial Strategy and Brands

 

    Our commercial strategy, focused on innovations and pack price initiatives, is working well, as evidenced by the growth of our one liter and 300 ml returnable glass bottle packages. We are also gaining market share in the North and North East, based on our estimates, and continue to have volume growth of our premium brands ahead of the total industry

 

    Our attention is now beginning to move towards brand initiatives and activations associated with the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

In China:

Volume

 

    Our own volumes grew by 8.3% in 3Q13 and by 8.8% in 9M13, driven by industry growth of over 3% during the first eight months for which data is available, and an estimated gain in market share of 75 bps during the same period

 

    Our national brands, Budweiser and Harbin, continue to grow well ahead of the rest of our business through growth in their existing footprints, and expansion into new channels and geographies

 

    In 3Q12 we announced the acquisition of four breweries in China. These transactions have now closed, adding additional capacity of approximately 9 million hectoliters. The integration is going very well

Revenue Management

 

    Revenue per hl grew by 7.8% in 3Q13, mainly driven by improved brand mix, reflecting the strong growth of Budweiser and Harbin Ice

Commercial Strategy and Brands

 

    Focus Brands, which represent almost 73% of our China volumes, grew 13.4% in 3Q13 with Budweiser, Harbin and Harbin Ice delivering double digit volume growth

 

    During the quarter, we continued with the roll out of our latest innovation, Budweiser Supreme. The brand is now available in over 20 major cities in China, with further expansion to follow in the coming months. Budweiser Supreme is a super-premium line extension of Budweiser, with a particular focus on high end Chinese restaurants.


 

PRESS RELEASE

OUTLOOK

Our outlook for 2013 is as follows:

 

(i) Volumes: We will continue to pursue our Focus Brands and premiumization strategy in the US, supported by a healthy innovation pipeline and a strong sales execution plan. We expect the pressure on volumes in Brazil to continue in the short term. Our expectations for Brazil beer industry volume growth remain unchanged. However, based on the 3Q13 results, we expect industry growth in Brazil in FY13 to be at the lower end of the range provided in our guidance of flat to low single digit decline. We continue to expect solid industry volume growth in China in 2013

 

(ii) Revenue per hl: We expect revenue per hl to grow organically ahead of inflation, weighted by country, as a result of continued improvement in mix and revenue management initiatives

 

(iii) Cost of Sales per hl: We expect CoS per hl to increase organically by mid single digits in 2013, with global commodity cost increases and an unfavorable foreign exchange transactional impact (primarily BRL/USD) being partly mitigated by procurement savings and efficiency gains

 

(iv) Distribution expenses per hl: We expect distribution expenses per hl to increase organically by mid single digits

 

(v) Sales & Marketing expenses: We will continue to drive top-line performance by investing behind our brands and expect our sales and marketing investments to increase by mid to high single digits in FY13

 

(vi) Net Finance Costs: We expect the average coupon on net debt to be in the range of 4.8% to 5.3% in FY13. The average coupon is expected to decline by 50 bps beginning in 2014 now that the negative cash carry linked to the delay in the closing of the combination with Grupo Modelo has been eliminated. Net pension interest expense (as a result of the revised IAS 19 standard) and accretion expenses are expected to be approximately 40 and 75 million USD per quarter, respectively. Other financial results will continue to be impacted by gains and losses related to the hedging of our share-based payment programs

 

(vii) Effective Tax Rate: We expect the FY13 normalized effective tax rate (ETR) to be between 19% and 21%. We expect the normalized ETR to be in the range of 20% to 25% in the period 2014-2017, and in the range of 25% to 27% thereafter

 

(viii) Net Capital Expenditure: our guidance for net capital expenditure in 2013 remains at approximately 3.9 billion USD, including Mexico. The remainder of the increase over 2012 is being driven mainly by investments in capacity expansion in Brazil and China, in addition to commercial capex linked to our strong innovation pipeline and market programs

 

(ix) Debt: We expect the net debt to EBITDA ratio to fall below 2.0x during the course of 2014. Approximately one third of AB InBev’s gross debt is denominated in currencies other than the US dollar, principally the euro

BETTER WORLD

Our dream is to be the Best Beer Company in a Better World, and we continue to demonstrate our social responsibility leadership. On 20 September 2013 we celebrated our fourth annual Global Be(er) Responsible Day, a global rally day to promote the importance of responsible drinking. This year, our activities focused on developing and expanding the global Family Talk About Drinking program; promoting road safety, including the use of designated drivers; training bartenders and retailers on how to sell and serve our products responsibly; and cultivating public/private partnerships. More than 35,000 employees participated in the Global Be(er) Responsible Day activities, more than doubling the engagement from 2010’s inaugural celebration. In addition, we hosted our first Well-Being and Responsibility Forum, an online dialogue that brought together 240 experts and practitioners from businesses, non-government organizations, academia and governments, across 15 countries, to discuss the importance of well-being and responsibility and seek collaborative solutions to curb the harmful use of alcohol.

We also announced our second-year progress toward meeting our Global Responsible Drinking Goals by the end of 2014. In two years (2011-2012) we have:

 

  (i) Reached almost 145 million adults with programs that help parents talk to their children about underage drinking, exceeding our three-year goal of reaching at least 100 million adults

 

  (ii) Provided ID-checking materials to almost 465,000 bars and other retailers, reaching roughly 93% of our target of at least 500,000

 

  (iii) Trained about 228,000 bartenders, waiters, grocery store clerks, other servers and sellers of alcohol on responsible beverage sales

 

  (iv) Spread the word about the importance of using a designated driver or safe-ride home, reaching more than 748 million legal-age consumers in two years, exceeding our target of 500 million consumers

 

  (v) Invested more than 112 million USD in responsible drinking advertising and programs

REFERENCE BASE

Given the transformational nature of the transaction with Grupo Modelo, and to facilitate the understanding of AB InBev’s underlying performance, we have updated our 2012 and 2013 segment reporting for purposes of results announcement and internal review by senior management.

North America (NA)

North American total volumes declined by 1.9% in 3Q13 and by 2.8% in 9M13.

In the United States, we estimate that industry selling day adjusted STRs declined by 1.0% in 3Q13 and by 2.2% in 9M13. Our own selling day adjusted STRs declined by 2.7% in 3Q13 and by 3.3% in 9M13, with the third quarter being partly impacted by the timing of our price increase. The price increase took effect on 30 September 2013, although in certain markets this was delayed until the start of November. As a result, some of the retail buy-in ahead of the increase occurred in the fourth quarter this year compared to the third quarter last year. Our STR volumes in 4Q13 will see the benefit of this timing difference. Our STWs declined by 1.9% in 3Q13 and by 2.8% in 9M13.

We estimate that our market share in the US declined by approximately 80 bps in 3Q13 and by 60 bps in 9M13. The decline in the quarter was driven by a share loss of approximately 35 bps from our sub-premium brands, driven by our strategy of narrowing the price gap between our premium and sub-premium brands, and by the timing of the retail buy-in compared to 3Q12, as mentioned above. We expect to recover this volume in October 2013. The trend of our year to date estimated share loss at the end of October is expected to be in line with our share loss reported for the first half of the year of approximately 45 bps.

US beer-only revenue per hl continues to perform well, growing by 3.2% in the quarter and by 3.7% in 9M13. Brand mix contributed 100 bps to this growth in 3Q13, mainly due to Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita.

In Canada, our beer volumes declined by 2.2% in 3Q13 and by 2.9% in 9M13. We estimate the industry declined by 1.2% in 3Q13 driven by higher taxes and pressure on consumer disposable income, but is showing signs of improvement as the year progresses. Our Focus Brands grew 1.5% during the quarter driven by a strong performance from the Bud Light family, which continued to benefit from strong innovation launches including Bud Light Platinum and Bud Lime Lime-A-Rita, and from Budweiser Black Crown. We estimate that market share remained stable in the quarter on a sequential basis and was marginally down versus 3Q12. Although the Canadian market remains very competitive, continued investment in our brands and our focus on balancing volume and profitability in a sustainable way continue to show positive results.

North American EBITDA grew by 2.4% to 1 858 million USD in 3Q13, with margin expansion of 53 bps for the Zone. US EBITDA margin improved by 80 bps, benefiting from distribution expense savings as a result of an improved production footprint for our innovations, as well as revenue per hl growth. North American EBITDA increased by 0.9% in 9M13 to 5 178 million USD with a small margin expansion of 15 bps.

Mexico

Mexican beer industry volumes remained under pressure in 3Q13, with our own volumes down by 2.3% in the quarter. This industry performance was due to a soft economy and, the impact of severe hurricanes and tropical storms, which disrupted economic activity in various states along the Mexican coastline. Domestic beer only revenue per hl in Mexico grew by 6.1% in 3Q13 driven by our revenue management initiatives.

Mexico EBITDA in 3Q13 grew by 69.7% to 537 million USD with an EBITDA margin enhancement of 1 818 bps to 46.2%. This very strong 3Q13 result reflects the capture of cost synergies in the quarter from the implementation of manufacturing best practices, procurement initiatives and overhead reductions.

Latin America North (LAN)

LAN volumes declined 4.0% in 3Q13, with beer volumes down 4.8% and soft drinks volumes declining by 2.1%. In 9M13, total volumes decreased 3.8%, with beer volumes falling 4.4% and soft drinks down 2.4%. We estimate beer industry volumes in Brazil declined by 4.3% in 3Q13.

In Brazil, our beer volumes declined by 5.0% in 3Q13 and by 4.7% in 9M13. The average market share for the quarter was estimated at 68.0%, which represents a sequential loss of just 10 bps. We estimate that our market share declined by 50 bps versus 3Q12, mainly due to a tough comparable. Our pack price strategies delivered solid results in the quarter with growth in both the 1 liter and 300 ml returnable bottles, while volumes of our premium brands continue to grow well ahead of the industry, driving mix improvements.

Our expectations for Brazil beer industry volume growth in FY13 remain unchanged. However, based on the 3Q13 results, we expect industry volume growth in FY13 to be at the lower end of the range provided in our guidance of flat to low single digit decline.

Brazil beer revenue per hl grew by 6.0% in 3Q13 against a difficult comparable of 18.3% in 3Q12, and by 8.1% in 9M13, due to pricing, premium brand mix and increased own distribution.

LAN EBITDA grew 9.5% to 1 295 million USD in 3Q13 with a margin expansion of 377 bps to 53.3%, driven by revenue per hl growth, lower cost of sales per hl compared to previous quarters and lower administrative expenses. The reduction in administrative expenses is mainly due to lower accruals for variable compensation. Distribution expenses increased by 19.8%, due mainly to an increase in own distribution. In 9M13, EBITDA increased by 5.5% to 3 679 million USD, with a margin expansion of 88 bps to 49.2%.

Latin America South (LAS)

Total volumes in LAS decreased 0.3% in 3Q13 with beer volumes down 2.0% and non-beer volumes up 2.2%. In 9M13, total volumes fell 4.5% with beer volumes declining 4.3% and non-beer volumes down 4.8%.

Beer volumes in Argentina grew 0.5% in 3Q13 despite a difficult economic environment with high inflationary pressure. We estimate that we gained share in the first eight months of the year for which data is available. Volumes declined by 3.6% in 9M13.

LAS EBITDA grew 20.5% to 301 million USD in 3Q13 with an EBITDA margin expansion of 198 bps to 42.6%, driven by revenue management initiatives and good cost discipline. In 9M13, EBITDA grew 15.5%, with a margin expansion of 99 bps to 41.7%.

Western Europe (WE)

Own beer volumes in 3Q13 grew by 0.1%, helped by good weather, while total volumes increased by 0.3%. In 9M13 own beer volumes declined by 4.6% while total volumes declined by 4.4%.

In Belgium, own beer volumes grew by 0.4% in 3Q13 driven by an industry recovery and a strong Focus Brand performance during the summer, leading to market share growth. Own beer volumes declined by 4.0% in 9M13.

In Germany, own beer volumes fell by 3.5% in 3Q13 and by 6.9% in 9M13, due to a weak industry and market share loss, driven by our price increase.

In the United Kingdom, own volumes including cider grew by 4.2% in 3Q13, with the industry benefiting from excellent summer weather. Market share in 9M13 was negatively impacted by ongoing promotional pressure, while we continue to balance volume, share and profitability.

WE EBITDA grew 4.8% to 350 million USD in 3Q13, with an EBITDA margin expansion of 101 bps to 34.4%, driven by revenue growth and cost management. In 9M13, EBITDA declined 2.7% to 838 million USD with a small margin contraction of 18 bps to 31.0%.

Central & Eastern Europe (CEE)

CEE total volumes declined by 18.9% in 3Q13 and by 13.3% in 9M13.

In Russia, beer volumes fell by 13.4% in 3Q13 due to weak industry performance. We estimate we gained share sequentially in the quarter, and continue to focus on balancing profitability with volume and market share. Beer volumes fell by 13.2% in 9M13.

In Ukraine, beer volumes declined by 26.2% in 3Q13 and by 13.4% in 9M13. The 3Q13 decline was driven by destocking in September following a very weak industry performance.

CEE EBITDA decreased by 38.2% to 67 million USD in 3Q13, and by 17.2% to 184 million USD in 9M13.

Asia Pacific (APAC)

Asia Pacific beer volumes grew by 8.4% in 3Q13 and by 8.8% in 9M13.

Beer volumes in China grew by 8.3% in 3Q13 and by 8.8% in 9M13 driven by industry growth and market share gains. Our Focus Brands Budweiser, Harbin and Sedrin grew by 13.5% in 3Q13 and by 14.8% in 9M13, significantly ahead of the total industry and our total volumes. We estimate that we gained 75 bps of market share in the first eight months of the year for which data is available.

APAC EBITDA increased by 24.1% to 227 million USD in 3Q13 with an EBITDA margin expansion of 118 bps to 20.6%. In 9M13, EBITDA increased by 31.9% to 496 million USD, with an EBITDA margin expansion of 184 bps to 18.3%.

Revenue

Revenue grew by 3.0% in 3Q13 and by 2.8% in 9M13, with revenue per hl growth of 4.2% in 3Q13 and 5.1% in 9M13. On a constant geographic basis (i.e. eliminating the impact of faster growth in countries with lower revenue per hl), revenue per hl improved by 4.9% in 3Q13 and by 5.7% in 9M13.

Cost of Sales (CoS)

Cost of Sales (CoS) decreased by 1.2% in 3Q13, and by 0.3% per hl. On a constant geographic basis, CoS per hl increased by 1.2% in 3Q13. The decrease in CoS was driven mainly by cost synergies captured in Mexico from implementation of manufacturing best practices and procurement initiatives. In 9M13, CoS grew by 1.3% and by 3.6% on a per hl basis. On a constant geographic basis, CoS per hl increased by 5.0% in 9M13.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses decreased by 1% in 3Q13 and increased by 0.7% in 9M13:

 

    Distribution expenses increased by 4.1% in 3Q13 and by 3.6% in 9M13, with lower distribution expenses in the US and the capture of cost synergies in Mexico, offset by increased own distribution in Brazil, and higher labor and transportation costs in Argentina and China

 

    Sales and marketing expenses increased by 3.5% in 3Q13 and by 5.0% in 9M13 with higher investments behind our brands and innovations in most Zones, offset by synergy savings in Mexico and the timing of commercial spending in LAS

 

    Administrative expenses decreased by 11.4% in 3Q13 and by 4.3% in 9M13 driven by overhead savings in Mexico and lower accruals for variable compensation

 

    Other operating income was 290 million USD in 3Q13 compared to 246 million USD in 3Q12, and 698 million USD in 9M13 compared to 537 million USD in 9M12. The increase in 3Q13 is mainly due to higher government incentives linked to our investments and the favorable outcome of legal proceedings in Brazil

Other financial results of -9 million USD in 3Q13 include a gain of 193 million USD linked to the hedging of our share-based payment programs in the quarter, offset by negative currency results and the payment of bank fees and taxes in the normal course of business.

Non-recurring net finance results were 170 million USD in 3Q13 resulting from mark-to-market adjustments on derivative instruments entered into to hedge the deferred share instrument issued in a transaction related to the combination with Grupo Modelo. By 30 September 2013, 99% of the deferred share instrument had been hedged at an average price of approximately 68 EUR per share.

Share of results of associates

3Q13 recorded a share of results of associates of 5 million USD compared to 170 million USD in 3Q12, and 288 million USD in 9M13 compared to 498 million USD in 9M12, mainly attributable to the results of Grupo Modelo up to the closing of the combination on 4 June 2013.

Income tax in 3Q13 was 699 million USD with a reported effective tax rate (ETR) of 20.0%, compared with an income tax expense of 456 million USD in 3Q12 and a reported ETR of 17.6%. The normalized ETR in 3Q13 was 21.3%, compared with 17.2% in 3Q12. The increase in the normalized ETR in 3Q13 mainly results from a change in country mix, including the mix impact resulting from the combination with Grupo Modelo.

In 9M13, the income tax expense was 1 548 million USD with a reported ETR of 10.7%, compared with income taxes of 1 188 million USD with a reported ETR of 15.8% in 9M12. The normalized ETR in 9M13 was 18.1% compared with 15.6% in 9M12. The decrease in the reported ETR mainly results from the non-taxable nature of the fair value adjustment on the initial investment held in Grupo Modelo.

PRESS RELEASE

Normalized EBITDA and normalized EBIT are measures utilized by AB InBev to demonstrate the company’s underlying performance.

Normalized EBITDA is calculated excluding the following effects from profit attributable to equity holders of AB InBev: (i) non-controlling interest; (ii) income tax expense; (iii) share of results of associates; (iv) net finance cost; (v) non-recurring net finance cost; (vi) non-recurring items above EBIT (including non-recurring impairment); and (vii) depreciation, amortization and impairment.

Normalized EBITDA and normalized EBIT are not accounting measures under IFRS accounting and should not be considered as an alternative to profit attributable to equity holders as a measure of operational performance, or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. Normalized EBITDA and normalized EBIT do not have a standard calculation method and AB InBev’s definition of normalized EBITDA and normalized EBIT may not be comparable to that of other companies.

The 2013 third quarter (3Q13) financial data set out in Figures 3 to 8 of this press release have been extracted from the group’s unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the nine months ended 30 September 2013, which have been reviewed by our statutory auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers Bedrijfsrevisoren BCVBA in accordance with both International Standard on Review Engagements 2410 and the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). The auditors concluded that, based on their review, nothing had come to their attention that caused them to believe that those interim financial statements were not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34 “Interim Financial Reporting”, as issued by the IASB and as adopted by the European Union.
