MillerCoors Delivers Profit Growth In Third Quarter

SABMiller plc (LN:SAB; OTC:SABMRY) and Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP; TSX: TPX) reported that MillerCoors third quarter underlying net income increased 13.5 percent to $325.6 million versus prior year driven by positive pricing, favorable brand mix and continued strong cost management. Coors Light continued to grow volume and market share, and Tenth and Blake Beer Company continued to grow ahead of the overall craft segment.

“This quarter we delivered significant profit growth and improved our year-to-date share trend,” said MillerCoors Chief Executive Officer Tom Long. “Strong investment, clear positioning and packaging innovation for Coors Light have helped drive nearly eight consecutive years of growth for our largest brand. Tenth and Blake demonstrated the power of its portfolio, marked by the continued growth of Blue Moon Belgian White and Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy. We have a pipeline of innovation to drive our largest brands, and we’re launching exciting above premium products nationally in early 2013. Strong cost management remains a priority, and we are committed to our net revenue strategy and focus on positive brand mix to drive value.”
