Beer business was weak; NAB and food business continued to recover

  • Revenue of beer fell 7.3% y-o-y during the quarter, mainly attributable to lower sales volume (-10.1% y-o-y). The decline in beer volume was largely led by Sabeco as consumer sentiment and economic conditions were weak in Vietnam.
  • Management shared that the sales volume of beer in Thailand was volatile but was largely positive. Thai Beverage gained market shares in Thailand due to enhanced distribution channels and penetration efforts.
  • EBITDA and margin fell 16.1% and 1.4 percentage points (ppt) respectively for beer, due to an increase in brand investment, marketing activities and raw material/packaging costs. Thai Beverage noted that it might be hard to further increase its product selling prices after a few rounds of price adjustments for beer.
  • For Thai Beverage’s NAB business, revenue and EBITDA rose 14.6% and 20.8% respectively in 2QFY23, thanks to higher sales volume (+8.4% y-o-y) and production efficiency. Food business’ revenue grew 19.7% y-o-y but EBITDA fell 5.3% y-o-y due to higher operating expenses.
