    Default Pubco. mergers.

    I see that Revolution Bars Group ,famed for it's Revolucion de Cuba brand have agreed to a cash offer from Stonegate Pub Group (Slug & Lettuce,Walkabout,Yates among other brands)

    It wont tempt me over the threshold ,and at £101.5M it's not a huge deal,but the trend of consolidation continues in the crazy world of the Pubco's.

    For their 11 bars, that's around £9M an outlet, which suggests they're hugeley profitable.

    I think Revolutions Bar Group had 66 outlets including the more mundane Revolutions bar concept ,but thats still an average of £1.5m each .

    That's interesting.

    Seems to me there is a Big Ten in the Pubco world after some recent transactions,figures from a quick trawl around wiki.

    1. Ei Group (formerly Enterprise ) -- 5000 .Takeover by Stonegate not yet closed.
    2. Greene King -- 2700
    3 Heineken ( Star ) -- 2350
    4. Mitchell & Butler -- 1800
    5.Marstons -- 1,560
    6 Patron (ex Punch) -- 1300
    7. Admiral -- 1,000
    8. Wetherspoons -- 900
    9. Stonegate -- 772
    10.Hawthorn/New River -- 700

    I make that a total of 18,200 pubs,37% of the market.

    Is anyone aware of something I've missed ,or gross inaccuracy in these figures ?

    It's not a gross inaccuracy but I can safely say now that JDW have 876 open outlets including the 5 in Eire and the 16 airport ones. This figure is definitely correct to plus or minus 5. It doesn't include any closed for refurbishment but will go down further as they still have ones to get rid of. It will be 877 tomorrow when they open that new micro in Ramsgate.
    Does the Stonegate figure include various ex JDW sites? Did I see something recently about them taking over a pub chain? I'm surprised the Punch figure is so low.

    You can knock Admiral (845 pubs) of that list as they were bought today by C&c group who own Tennants and Magners cider

    From 'London Drinker' (August/September 2017):

    "M&B have sold 73 pubs - 65 freeholds and eight leaseholds - to a property investment group called Aprirose for £40 million. According to a report in the Times, these will form a new chain called Milton Pubs and Taverns along with 35 sites they already own. This makes Aprirose, who I admit I had never heard of, the 11th largest pub group in the country."

    However, the "11th largest pub group in the country" claim must be way out.
