The companies said today (12 May) they have inked a “co-operation agreement” to “explore new markets” beyond the 60 countries where San Miguel is currently sold. The two companies have operated separately since Mahou acquired San Miguel Spain in 2000.

San Miguel Spain was originally established in 1957 as a subsidiary of the Philippines group. SMB Inc is itself a subsidiary of San Miguel Corp (SMC).

“Leveraging on the strength and depth of our category as well as presence in our respective markets can do a lot for ramping up San Miguel as a global flagship brand,” said Ramón Ang, SMC's president and SMB's COO & chairman.

Javier López del Hierro, Mahou-San Miguel's chairman said the deal is a "unique opportunity to release the brand´s enormous potential".

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. 

Last mont, Mahou-San Miguel announced it had taken full control of its Indian joint-venture, Arian Breweries & Distilleries.
