Jim Koch will do anything market requires , if he needs more market size to sell th Brewery business to Berkshire Hathaway or Coca Cola for that matter he'll do it! BREW now sells same dollar amount of beer 180 million sa sam in 2001 , SAM was flat lined on sales at that level for 3 years in row ...Brew increasing sales at 8% Brew can be purchased at 50 million discount to SAM 2001 price ..it's a crazy value
Stop the BS, BREW can only be bought by INBEV and they aren't paying a big premium for two dying brands and a fad Hawaiian brand that can still grow by geographic expansion. The discount is because there is not a possible big buyout premium. safety, you know it, don't try this BS again.
those who fail to understand history ,must repeat it ! SAM was flat lined in sales from 1998 to 2001 at 180 million sales when BUD was playing Hardball, So I guess SAM Adams was a dying brand ! BREW now at 180 million sales with 8% sales growth Same market cap 130 million as SAM in 2000 except not 50 million in cash but 100 million in 1 million barrell brewing capacity ! A little different but when does distribution agreement expire?
