Cider is outperforming in a weak Irish drinks market, according to the latest data from the Irish Revenue Commissioners. Net excise receipts and volumes clearance (which we use as a proxy for consumption) for cider are growing this year, while the data for beer and spirits show these categories declining. Irish net excise receipts for cider grew +2.2% year-on-year (yoy) in August. Cider net excise receipts for the first half of C&C's financial year (beginning March to end August) showed growth of 2.7% yoy. In comparison, Irish beer and spirits markets were weaker. Net excise receipts for beer declined -1.4% yoy in August and are down -3.9% yoy from March-August (C&C's first-half period). The Irish spirits market showed starker declines, falling -15.4% yoy in August and -19% yoy in the March-August period. The Revenue Commissioners also published volume clearance data for July which show domestically-produced cider growing at a faster rate than imports. Domestic cider volumes rose 2.7% yoy in July compared to 0.4% yoy for imported cider. Domestically-produced cider accounts for some 90% of the total Irish cider market. In 2008, domestic cider volumes declined 12% while imported cider grew 12% yoy. We note that Irish cider volumes for 2008 were at the lowest levels since 1999. C&C has over 85% share of the Irish cider market. The introduction of Bulmers Pear, the reduction of the price of the Bulmers pint bottle and a marketing campaign focused on highlighting this cut are some of the factors driving cider's outperformance. We are forecasting 2% volume growth and -4.5% pricing for C&C's Irish cider division this year.

Magners recorded year-on-year (yoy) growth in July of +5%. This is a significant turnaround from the mid-20s percent year-on-year (yoy) falls that the brand has experienced for the last two years. The data confirm that management has achieved its goal, set out in March, to stabilise Magners in the GB market. The on-trade cider market grew in value by +6% in July (3% volume, 3% pricing); Magners outperformed with +8% value growth (5% volume, 3% pricing). The overall long alcoholic drinks (LAD) market saw a -1% fall (-5% volume, +4% pricing). The Magners Pear roll-out has been successful, helping drive volume growth and rejuvenating the brand. Pear has achieved 20% distribution since being launched in March (Magners Original has some 60% distribution). Interestingly, while Magners draught distribution has not increased this year, it has shown strong volume gains: with just 10% distribution, it has taken a 4.5% share of the draught cider category. Draught cider represents 70% of the on-trade cider category. Magners draught now represents 20% of Magners GB on-trade sales, and we see good potential for the offering going forward. Very strong growth was recorded in the off-trade cider category, but Magners underperformed. Magners volume growth was c.+14% yoy, but price/mix was weaker (-9% yoy). This fall in pricing yoy (price per litre for Magners was stable month-on-month) reflects the fact that Magners pricing was out of step with the competition 12 months ago, when it sold at a 25% premium to its competitor brand, Bulmers. The premium is now 10%.

http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/finance/2009/0829/1224253464953.html C&C CHIEF executive John Dunsmore told shareholders yesterday that he was confident the drinks group would "stabilise" volume sales of cider this year following a decision to pursue separate marketing strategies for the Irish and British markets. "We lost about 15 to 20 per cent volume in the last year," he said. "Our objective for this financial year to the end of February 2010 is to stabilise volumes and we are extremely confident of our ability to do that."

LBO..yes but the biss you failed to post was: In Ireland, Bulmers cider volumes rose by 3% against the backdrop of a weak market and a challenging economic environment. In the UK, Magners cider volumes edged 1% higher. FAR BETTER THAN EXPECTED!

Medium/Long term still v. good DCL. The cork popped this morning so the short term might be volatile. It will be interesting to see what Investors Chronicle and Brokers think about the deal, which the markets like. Perhaps a taste of things to come. The new guys on the block are visionary and creative with proven track career records in S&N.

In the most recent Nielsen off-trade data, released Friday, Magners recorded volumes of 2.47ml (+5.1% mom and 1.2% yoy), with increases in bottled products (pint and 330ml) offsetting declines in cans. The pear product continues to perform well (13.4% of volumes, up from 10% last month). The improvement in the bottles can easily be explained through discounting. The price of pint bottles fell by 13.8% mom and 8.3% yoy, while the 330ml bottles saw a reduction in price of 7.7% mom and 13.1% yoy. Interestingly, the price of the cans ticked up slightly, which may explain the shift to the bottled product. Volumes of Bulmers were down significantly month on month (-35.5%). This is largely attributable to the marked fall off in its Pear Product, with volumes more than halving from the level achieved last month (presumably due to the 26.1% price increase). The apple cider product did not perform as badly but did suffer a large fall mom (-20.3%) on relatively flat pricing (+0.5% mom). It is encouraging that Magners continues to grow volumes of the Pear product, without having to make a radical movement in the price. The fall in Bulmers Pear due to a 25% price increase (although it remains 26% cheaper than Magners Pear) suggests that its consumers may be more price sensitive that those of Magners. It will be interesting to see how this balancing act between prices and volumes develops in the coming months. At this early stage the data suggests that Magners Pear is relatively more price inelastic, which clearly is a positive. C&C will next update the market this Friday in its AGM statement. 3 MORNING WRAP Dermot O'Leary T +353-1-6419167 E dermot.c.oleary@goodbody.ie Recommendation; Buy Closing Price: €17.95 Killian Murphy T +353-1-6410423 E killian.h.murphy@goodbody.ie Recommendation; Buy Closing Price: €2.08 Liam Igoe T +353-1-6419450 E liam.a.igoe@goodbody.ie Economic View; Low interest rates to remain Paddy Power; Australian peer sees strong growth online.

Im deighted to be here LG/WX - I understand that C&C is being transformed (now more revolution than evolution) into a proper Plc. Unnecessary costs and arrangements are been ruthlessly wiped out. It appears that MP was more a PR guru than an effective CEO but the former S&N boyos are whipping the firm into shape. They are well incentivised to get C&C performing splendidly and I do not expect them to fail. Im still getting to know the firm. What are your targets for it say for the period from now til Xmas?
