Russia’s biggest beer maker Baltika has licensed the right to use its trade marks “Baltika” and “Nevskoe” to Derbes, a Kazakh brewer. The license was granted until 2029 for a fixed fee of €90 million. Furthermore, Derbes must make quarterly royalty payments of 4.5% of their net profits from any production and sales of beer under the above trade marks.
Carlsberg, the owning company of Baltika and Derbes, is considering a reorganisation in order to unite the two. Such a move would concentrate on the creation of a subsidiary of the Russian company, namely a limited liability Baltika-Almati (LLP).
