The company’s pricing actions, ongoing premiumization and other revenue management initiatives have also been aiding its revenues. Relentless execution, investment in its brands and accelerated digital transformation have been boosting market share growth across most key markets. Continued resilience in the global beer category is also expected to have aided the first-quarter performance.On the last reported quarter’s earnings call, management predicted the positive business trends to continue throughout 2024. We estimate 0.9% revenue growth for first-quarter 2024. Our model estimates revenue per hl to increase 1.6% year over year, with a volume decline of 0.7%.AB InBev is anticipated to have benefited from continued premiumization efforts and favorable industry trends in the first quarter. The company has been focused on offering premium beer variants, keeping on track with the consumer premiumization trend in the alcohol industry. It has been investing to develop a diverse portfolio of global, international, and crafts and specialty premium brands in its markets. Apart from the premium brands, BUD’s global brands lead the way in premiumization. These factors are likely to have boosted the company’s top line in the first quarter.The rapid expansion of its digital platform and leveraging technology, such as B2B sales and other e-commerce platforms, have been the key drivers for BUD. The company has been witnessing accelerations in B2B platforms, e-commerce and digital marketing trends, aiding growth for the past few months. These are expected to have contributed significantly to the top and bottom lines in the to-be-reported quarter.AB InBev has been steadfastly growing its Beyond Beer portfolio, including ready-to-drink beverages like canned wine and canned cocktails, hard seltzers, cider and flavored malt beverages. The Beyond Beer trend has recently been gaining popularity due to the increased demand for low-alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks. The company has been focused on expanding its Beyond Beer portfolio, which has also been aiding the top line.The company’s revenue-management initiatives and premiumization efforts are likely to have aided revenues per hl in the first quarter. Growth in the premium portfolio and the expansion of the Beyond Beer portfolio are expected to have driven volume gains in the to-be-reported quarter.However, AB InBev’s first-quarter results are expected to reflect the continued impacts of elevated costs stemming from commodity cost inflation and investments to support long-term growth. These are expected to have weighed on the company’s EBITDA margin in the to-be-reported quarter.Zacks ModelOur proven model does not conclusively predict an earnings beat for AB InBev this time around.
