Dear Client: Heineken has bought out the remainder of Lagunitas, having entered into a 50/50 JV with the California brewer back in 2015. The transaction been completed with immediate effect. Financial terms were not disclosed. Back then, Lagunitas founder Tony Magee had stressed that the deal was with Heineken global, and had little to do with HUSA. Today's announcement purports that Lagunitas will continue to operate as a separate business entity within Heineken, reporting into their Americas region. (For context, HUSA, Heineken Mexico and Heineken Brazil are among those reporting into the Heineken Americas region; Lagunitas will as well now.) Presumably, this is about Lagunitas' global prospects, as the tie-up was two years ago. Tony will reportedly remain active as executive chairman of the company, supported by his current management team. "In addition, Tony will take a leading advisory role to Heineken and its Executive Team on the global and local craft strategy," per official announcement. And it seems as much about global prospects as ever. Since the initial tie-up, the global company says it has "helped to expand Lagunitas' international presence, including entry into new markets such as France, Mexico, Italy and Spain, and extended the brand's availability in markets including the UK, Canada, Netherlands, Sweden and Japan. "Following this transaction HEINEKEN will accelerate the export of Lagunitas to many more markets around the world." Indeed, Tony told BBD just recently that their international business is up about 160% this year. Sweden is their biggest market. But the "UK will catch up soon." What of that big Mexico City push? "It's coming," Tony said. Another initiative reportedly in the works is a Lagunitas production facility overseas. Tony has said in the past that they will "likely" build a brewery in the United Kingdom to provide for the European Union [see CBD 08-24-2016]. Lagunitas overall is growing 13.6% in volume YTD through 4/16/17 in IRI MULC. That outpaces the craft category, up 2.6% YTD. And they're still seeing very strong growth in their California backyard. "So far this year, the Southwest region is adding the most incremental depletions growth for us," Tony told BBD. "It is our second largest region by volume behind Northern California and is growing +15.5% YTD." They'll do more than a million barrels this year. More on trends in CBD. LOOKING BACK. It seems Heineken owning Lagunitas outright was kind of inevitable. Since the two first started talking, Heineken always wanted more. Tony has shared in the past that the deal's original conception was a 35% minority stake [see BBD 09-21-2015]. But Heineken sought more, so it moved to a 50/50 deal. And now it seems that even half of Lagunitas wasn't enough to satiate their appetite. They wanted all of it. YOUR CHEAT SHEET: BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED We've spoken to the powers that be, to answer your burning questions (we can't help you with any other burning sensations) about the Heineken-Lagunitas marriage: DOES THIS MEAN MORE COLLABORATION WITH HUSA? HUSA and Lagunitas will be working "shoulder to shoulder," but there will be "no consolidation of operations." As we understand, the two only cooperate on some marketing activities, and some national accounts info sharing. WHAT'S THE BIG PUSH TO FULLY CONSUMMATE THE DEAL? The way we understand it, the JV was like shacking up, and the full buyout is the marriage. The JV "effectively built useful walls between us; those walls served a purpose that everyone agreed was beneficial, and allowed us to get to know each other," said Tony. But the walls have become obstacles - particularly, for Lagunitas' international run room, and ability to share resources like brewing capacity or money. WHAT'S THE NEXT BIG INTERNATIONAL MARKET? Heineken does business in roughly 160 countries. Lagunitas is up about 160% internationally. If much of this marriage has to do with global aspirations, what's their next big move? Tony wouldn't go into too much detail, but we understand they've just rolled out Portugal, and are expanding in Canada. Mexico is growing, and New Zealand is happening now. Seems they want slow growth in many countries. So could Tony see a day in the near future where global volumes surpass that of those in the U.S.? That's a ways off. DOES THIS AFFECT DISTRIBUTORS ? "Nah," said Tony. They've long disavowed the conception distribution alignment - although Lagunitas and Heineken do have a lot of distributor overlap. A HIGH END FOR LAGUNITAS? We asked how the deal would affect their partnerships with craft brewers (like their deal with Texas' Independence, for example), which Tony maintains are totally under the Lagunitas, not Heineken, umbrella. In fact, they're establishing their own sort of "High End" unit, presumably a stable of craft entity partners. At this point, it's largely a blank slate. IS THIS TONY'S EXIT STRATEGY? Not even close. "In all honesty, I don't see myself transitioning out," says Tony. This is actually Tony "taking on a bigger job." He's remaining executive chair, "doing the things I still do here: labels, copy, branding, working on recipes… none of that changes. But I'm also gonna be consulting directly to the Heineken Executive Board." Until tomorrow, Harry, Jenn, and Jordan "Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome." - Arthur Ashe ---------- Sell Day Calendar ---------- Today's Sell Day: 4 Sell days this month: 23 Sell days this month last year: 22 This month ends on a: Wed.

Amsterdam, 4 May 2017 - Heineken N.V. ('HEINEKEN') (EURONEXT: HEIA; OTCQX: HEINY) today announces that it has acquired all the remaining shares in Lagunitas Brewing Company. To maintain the Lagunitas culture and free spirit, the company will continue to operate as an independent entity within HEINEKEN and will report within the HEINEKEN Americas Region. Tony Magee, the founder of Lagunitas, will remain active as Executive Chairman of the company.  Tony will be supported by his current management team. In addition, Tony will take a leading advisory role to HEINEKEN and its Executive Team on the global and local craft strategy. HEINEKEN has enjoyed a successful partnership with Lagunitas since 2015, when it acquired a 50% stake in the company. Since then Lagunitas has continued to outperform the US beer market, where craft beer now represents about 11% of total volume. Lagunitas is the market leader in the IPA segment, the fastest growing sub-segment within craft, and sold over 1 million hectolitres in 2016. HEINEKEN has helped to expand Lagunitas' international presence, including entry into new markets such as France, Mexico, Italy and Spain, and extended the brand's availability in markets including the UK, Canada, Netherlands, Sweden and Japan. Following this transaction HEINEKEN will accelerate the export of Lagunitas to many more markets around the world. The impact of this acquisition, similar to the proposed acquisitions in Brazil and in the UK, is excluded from the 2017 FY margin guidance.  In the current year the impact of acquiring Lagunitas is expected to be slightly margin dilutive. Commenting on the transaction, Jean-François van Boxmeer, Chairman of the Executive Board & CEO of HEINEKEN said:  "Our partnership with Lagunitas has been a great success and today's announcement marks the next stage of an exciting journey. We look forward to accelerating the roll-out of the Lagunitas brand to many more markets, and sharing Lagunitas craft beer with many more consumers around the world." Tony Magee, founder and Executive Chairman of Lagunitas, added: "During the 19 months of our partnership we have come to trust and truly believe in each other. Through that we have found ourselves aligned on how to bring the vibe of U.S. craft-brewing to beer lovers everywhere. Only by fully committing to this relationship can we both respond to the historic opportunity that awaits us in all 24 time zones." The transaction has been completed with immediate effect. Financial terms are not disclosed. About HEINEKEN Group: HEINEKEN is the world's most international brewer. It is the leading developer and marketer of premium beer and cider brands. Led by the Heineken® brand, the Group has a powerful portfolio of more than 250 international, regional, local and specialty beers and ciders. We are committed to innovation, long-term brand investment, disciplined sales execution and focused cost management. Through "Brewing a Better World", sustainability is embedded in the business and delivers value for all stakeholders. HEINEKEN has a well-balanced geographic footprint with leadership positions in both developed and developing markets. We employ approximately 73,500 people and operate more than 165 breweries, malteries, cider plants and other production facilities in more than 70 countries. Heineken N.V. and Heineken Holding N.V. shares trade on the Euronext in Amsterdam. Prices for the ordinary shares may be accessed on Bloomberg under the symbols HEIA NA and HEIO NA and on Reuters under HEIN.AS and HEIO.AS. HEINEKEN has two sponsored level 1 American Depositary Receipt (ADR) programmes: Heineken N.V. (OTCQX: HEINY) and Heineken Holding N.V. (OTCQX: HKHHY). Most recent information is available on HEINEKEN's website: www.theHEINEKENcompany.com and follow us via @HEINEKENCorp. About Lagunitas Brewing Company: Lagunitas Brewing Company began on a kitchen stove in Northern California in 1993. From actually getting beers into bottles and onto the streets, Lagunitas looks to the future. From expanding the Petaluma Brewery to building a second in Chicago and soon a third in Azusa CA to bringing its flagship IPA across the pond Lagunitas could probably make good beer on the Moon. Wherever you go, beer speaks, people mumble. More mumblings at www.lagunitas.com.

Amsterdam, 13 February 2017 - Heineken N.V. ("HEINEKEN") announces today that it has entered into an agreement with Kirin Holdings Company, Limited ("Kirin") to acquire Brasil Kirin Holding S.A. ("Brasil Kirin"), one of the largest beer and soft drinks producers in Brazil. The transaction will transform HEINEKEN's existing business across the country by extending its footprint, increasing scale and further strengthening its brand portfolio. On closing, HEINEKEN will become the second largest beer company in Brazil, with a stronger commercial platform from which to capture future profitable growth in an exciting beer market. Market background Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world with over 200 million people. Beer volume in 2015[1] was 139 million hectolitres, making it the third largest market globally. Whilst the macroeconomic environment has been challenging over the last few years, the longer term fundamentals of the Brazilian beer market are highly attractive supported by a growing population and a positive GDP outlook. In addition, the premium segment of the beer market, which has outperformed the broader beer market in recent years, has a relatively low share compared to many other markets, providing a compelling and attractive opportunity for future growth. About Brasil Kirin Brasil Kirin is a large beer producer in Brazil, operating 12 production facilities with its own distribution network. It has a particularly strong presence in the North and North East, where HEINEKEN currently has less exposure. It owns an extensive portfolio of beer brands and its share of the Brazilian beer market in 2015 was c.9%1. The portfolio includes Schin, one of Brazil's largest brands covering the mainstream and value segments, as well as the Devassa brand. Furthermore, it owns the speciality brands Baden Baden and Eisenbahn, which will complement HEINEKEN's existing premium portfolio. Brasil Kirin also has a soft drinks business comprised of carbonated drinks, bottled water and other beverages. The soft drinks portfolio, which has around 2%1 market share, includes the iconic Itubaína brand. About HEINEKEN Brazil HEINEKEN expanded its footprint in Brazil through the acquisition of the beer operations of Fomento Económico Mexicano, S.A.B. de C.V ("FEMSA") in 2010. Since then, HEINEKEN has increased its market share to c.10%[2], led by Heineken® in the outperforming premium segment. At the same time, HEINEKEN has continued to build scale with the Kaiser and Bavaria brands, and has recently seen strong success with the roll out of Amstel in the mainstream segment. HEINEKEN currently operates 5 breweries in Brazil and has a strategic distribution partnership with the Coca-Cola bottlers. Compelling strategic rationale HEINEKEN believes that the transaction delivers compelling strategic benefits for its Brazilian business. In particular it: HEINEKEN Brazil is in the process of reviewing its future route to market and will provide further detail when appropriate. Financial highlights The total consideration to be paid to Kirin for the shares is EUR 664 million, corresponding to an estimated enterprise value of EUR 1,025 million for HEINEKEN. Upon completion of the transaction Brasil Kirin will be consolidated with HEINEKEN. Brasil Kirin today reported FY results for the year ended 31 December 2016 with revenue of BRL 3,706 million (2015: BRL 3,698 million) and an operating loss before amortisation of goodwill, etc. of BRL 262 million (2015: BRL 322 million). HEINEKEN expects to deliver significant cost synergies from the acquisition through production efficiencies, including logistics and brewery optimisation, and through optimising selling, general and administrative expenses. This transaction is expected to be dilutive to HEINEKEN's margin in 2017. We will provide more detailed transaction guidance including the necessary accounting adjustments when appropriate. Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected in the first half of 2017. Commenting on the transaction, Jean-Francois van Boxmeer, Chairman & CEO of HEINEKEN, said: "This transaction marks a step-change in scale in an exciting beer market, building on our success to date in the premium segment and strengthening our platform for future growth. It reiterates our commitment to the Brazilian market and confidence in our ability to generate attractive returns over the long-term across all segments of the market. I look forward to welcoming our new colleagues from Brasil Kirin into HEINEKEN and working with them to take the combined business forward."
