HEINEKEN NV: Heineken N.V. reports on 2024 first-quarter trading

Amsterdam, 24 April 2024 - Heineken N.V. (EURONEXT: HEIA; OTCQX: HEINY) publishes its trading update for the first quarter of 2024.

Key Highlights
  • Revenue €8,184 million, up 7.2%
  • Net revenue (beia) organic growth 9.4%; per hectolitre 4.9%
  • Beer volume organic growth 4.7%
  • Premium beer volume organic growth 7.3%
  • Heineken® volume growth 12.9%
  • Gross merchandise value captured via eB2B platforms +17%
  • Outlook for the full year unchanged; operating profit (beia) expected to grow organically low- to high-single-digit.
CEO Statement

Dolf van den Brink, Chairman of the Executive Board / CEO, commented:

"As we maintained focus on our EverGreen priorities, we had an encouraging start to 2024. All regions grew volume and net revenue, and we continued to see a sequential improvement in the performance of the business, growing in line or ahead of the category in the majority of our markets. This quarter was boosted by an earlier Easter and cycling negative one-off effects from last year. Top-line delivery was well-balanced between volume and value as more markets returned to volume growth and our underlying premiumisation trends remained strong.

Heineken® accelerated its growth to 12.9% in volume globally and became the #1 brand by value in Brazil. Our Low & No-Alcohol (LONO) portfolio grew volume in the mid-teens, led by the strong growth of Heineken® 0.0, further strengthening our global leadership position in the segment. Our eB2B platforms captured €2.7 billion in gross merchandise value this quarter, 17% more than last year. Continuing our journey to net zero, we opened a large scale solar thermal plant in Spain featuring cutting-edge technology.

We continue to see the economic environment as challenging and uncertain, and will remain agile and focused. We will continue to invest behind our brands, innovations, commercial capabilities and route-to-consumer. Our full year expectations remain unchanged."

Driving Superior Growth

Throughout this report figures refer to quarterly performance unless otherwise indicated.

Revenue in the first quarter was €8.2 billion, up 7.2%. Net revenue (beia) was €6.8 billion, up 9.4% organically. Total consolidated volume increased 4.3% and net revenue (beia) per hectolitre was up 4.9%. Price mix on a constant geographic basis increased by 6.0%, mainly driven by pricing and in line with inflation.

Currency translation reduced net revenue (beia) by €294 million or 4.6%, mainly driven by the devaluation of currencies in Africa, particularly the Nigerian Naira, and partially offset by a stronger Mexican Peso and Brazilian Real. Consolidation changes in net revenue (beia) contributed €164 million, driven by the integration of Distell and Namibia Breweries and partially offset by the sale of Vrumona in the Netherlands and our exit from Russia.

IFRS Measures € million Total growthBEIA Measures1 € million Organic growth

Net revenue 6,847 7.3% Net revenue (beia) 6,847 9.4%

1. Consolidated figures are used throughout this report, unless otherwise stated. Please refer to the Glossary for an explanation of non-GAAP measures and other terms. Page 5 includes a reconciliation versus IFRS metrics. These non-GAAP measures are included in internal management reports that are reviewed by the Executive Board of HEINEKEN, as management believes that this measurement is the most relevant in evaluating the results and in performance management.

Beer volume increased 4.7% organically with growth in all regions, a sequential improvement in the performance of the business, boosted by calendar and one-off effects. In particular, the Americas and Europe regions benefitted from the earlier timing of Easter and the Africa & Middle East and Asia Pacific regions from a soft comparable base last year due to one-off effects in Vietnam and Nigeria.

Beer volume

Asia Pacific 10.311.3 9.4%

Driving premiumisation at scale, led by Heineken®

Premium beer volume grew by 7.3%, outperforming the total beer portfolio. The strong momentum in premiumisation was led by Heineken® and its line extensions, complemented by our international and local premium brands, including Tiger, Desperados, Birra Moretti and Kingfisher Ultra.

Heineken® grew volume by 12.9%, with double-digit growth in more than 30 markets. Heineken® 0.0 grew volume in the high-teens, with double-digit growth in all regions, led by Brazil, Vietnam and China. Heineken® Silver grew volume by more than 50%, led by Vietnam and China.

Asia Pacific 2.33.2 38.8%
Europe 3.13.2 3.2%

Build a future-fit digital route-to-consumer

We continued to expand our business-to-business digital (eB2B) platforms. In the first quarter our platforms captured €2.7 billion in gross merchandise value (GMV), an increase of 17% versus last year, connecting more than 640,000 active customers in fragmented, traditional channels, up 28% compared to last year. We continue to build capabilities to enable better features at scale, resulting in an improved customer experience and better performance, helping customers to grow their business.

Business Outlook

We continue to see the economic environment as challenging and uncertain, and will remain agile and focused on strengthening our business in line with our EverGreen strategy. Despite the solid start to the year, we cannot extrapolate the reported top-line growth to the rest of the year. As planned, we will increase our investment behind our brands, innovations, commercial capabilities and route-to-consumer. All in all, we continue to expect operating profit (beia) to grow organically by a low- to high-single-digit and net profit (beia) organic growth lower than the operating profit (beia) organic growth.
