Molson Coors Reports Higher Net Sales and Lower After-Tax Income For the Second Quarter 201107:30 EDT Tuesday, August 02, 2011 DENVER & MONTREAL (Business Wire) -- Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP; TSX) today reported 5.7 percent higher net sales, a 5.7 percent decrease in net income from continuing operations, and a 1.2 percent decrease in underlying after-tax income for the second quarter 2011, driven by lower sales volumes, higher commodity inflation and investments in the Company's international business, largely offset by positive pricing, continued cost reductions and favorable foreign currency movements. Molson Coors president and chief executive officer Peter Swinburn said, “In the second quarter, underlying after-tax income decreased about 1%. Positive beer pricing, cost reductions in our core businesses and favorable foreign exchange were offset by the impact of continuing weak economic conditions, commodity inflation and investments in our international business in the quarter.” Stock Repurchase Program Molson Coors Brewing Company also announced today that its Board of Directors has approved a new program authorizing the repurchase, effective immediately, of up to $1.2 billion of the Company's Class B Common stock, with an expected program term of three years. “In the past several years, we have continued to strengthen the Company's balance sheet, added new brands and businesses in select markets, and doubled our dividends,” said Peter Swinburn. “The combination of substantial cash generation and cash balances now also permits us to use our cash to increase returns to shareholders through a stock repurchase program.” “This announcement reflects our continued confidence in the future growth and cash generating potential of our Company. We are in a strong position to increase cash returns to Molson Coors shareholders while preserving the financial flexibility to explore growth opportunities and strengthen our balance sheet,” said Stewart Glendinning, Molson Coors Chief Financial Officer. Molson Coors plans to purchase its Class B Common stock from time to time, principally in the open market or through private transactions. The number, price and timing of the repurchases will be at the Company's sole discretion and will be evaluated depending on market conditions, liquidity needs or other factors. The Company's board of directors may suspend, modify or terminate the program at any time without prior notice. Cost Savings Highlights In the second quarter 2011, the Company delivered $12 million of Resources for Growth Two (RFG2) cost reductions. MillerCoors achieved $18 million of synergies in the quarter to complete its three-year synergy program. MillerCoors has delivered $546 million in synergies since beginning operations on July 1, 2008, surpassing the original commitment to deliver $500 million by June 30, 2011. MillerCoors also delivered incremental cost savings of $9 million in the quarter. Molson Coors receives 42 percent of these synergies and incremental cost savings. Foreign Exchange The Company's second quarter results include the benefit of favorable foreign currency movements, which increased underlying pretax income approximately $6 million. Effective Tax Rate The Company's second quarter effective tax rate was 16 percent on a reported basis and 17 percent on an underlying basis. The Company now estimates that its full-year 2011 effective tax rate will be in the range of 15 percent to 19 percent on an underlying basis, assuming no further changes in tax laws. 2nd Quarter Business Segment Results Following are the Company's second quarter 2011 results by business segment: Canada Business Canada underlying pretax income decreased 4.5 percent to $139.9 million in the quarter. Increased pricing, reductions in marketing, general and administrative expense and favorable foreign currency were more than offset by mid-single-digit volume declines and the resulting fixed-overhead deleverage. These results reflect a $5 million(3) benefit from a 6 percent year-over-year strengthening in the Canadian dollar versus the U.S. dollar. Canada sales-to-retail (STRs) for the quarter decreased 4.2 percent driven by continued industry weakness and competitive price discounting in key regions. This represents a market share decline of approximately three-fourths of a point from a year ago, partially driven by a challenging share comparison versus the second quarter last year, when the company grew market share more than one-and-a-half points. Canadian beer industry STRs decreased an estimated 2.4 percent in the second quarter. Molson Coors Canada sales volume was 2.4 million hectoliters in the quarter, down 3.9 percent. Net sales per hectoliter increased 2.2 percent in local currency due equally to continued positive pricing and the addition of contract brewing sales to North American Breweries. Cost of goods sold per hectoliter increased 7.7 percent in local currency in the quarter, driven by the impacts of fixed-cost deleveraging from lower volumes, input inflation, sales mix, and the cost of brewing beer under our contract brewing agreement with North American Breweries. Marketing, general and administrative expenses decreased 4.4 percent in local currency due to lower overhead expenses. United States Business (MillerCoors)(4) Molson Coors underlying U.S. segment pretax income increased 5.6 percent to $172.2 million in the quarter. MillerCoors Operating and Financial Highlights MillerCoors underlying net income for the quarter, excluding special items, increased 2.6 percent to $399.8 million, driven by positive pricing, favorable brand mix and continued strong cost management. MillerCoors domestic STRs declined 2.7 percent due to continued industry headwinds. Domestic sales-to-wholesalers (STWs) declined 3.1 percent. Domestic net revenue per hectoliter increased 2.9 percent, driven by favorable pricing and brand mix. Total company net revenue per hectoliter, including contract brewing and company-owned distributor sales, increased 3.5 percent. Cost of goods sold per hectoliter increased 2.3 percent, due to higher aluminum, freight and fuel costs, which were partially offset by synergies and other cost savings. Marketing, general and administrative costs increased 0.4 percent, driven primarily by higher information system expense, partially offset by cost savings. Depreciation and amortization expenses in the quarter were $72.6 million, and additions to tangible and intangible assets totaled $62.5 million. United Kingdom Business U.K. underlying pretax income increased by 6.1 percent to $34.7 million in the quarter, driven by a temporary reduction in marketing spending, a decrease in defined-benefit pension expense and favorable foreign currency movements, partially offset by lower volumes as a result of cycling the FIFA World Cup in 2010. The British Pound appreciated approximately 9 percent versus the U.S. Dollar, which improved pretax earnings by approximately $3 million. U.K. owned-brand STRs decreased 5.7 percent due to cycling the benefit of the World Cup. The Company's U.K. market share increased in the quarter, as total U.K. beer industry volume decreased approximately 10 percent. Net sales per hectoliter of owned brands increased 7 percent in local currency, driven by the impact of positive sales mix in the quarter, especially the addition of the Modelo brands. Cost of goods sold per hectoliter of owned brands increased 16 percent in local currency, with nearly all the change due to sales mix, including the addition of the Modelo brands, along with input inflation and fixed-cost deleverage from lower volumes. Marketing, general and administrative expense decreased 7 percent in local currency, due to lower marketing and pension expense, partly offset by higher sales force and information systems costs. International and Corporate The underlying pretax loss for International and Corporate was $67 million in the quarter, a 16.1 percent increase, primarily due to higher investments in international businesses and brands, along with a $2.0 million increase in Corporate net interest expense. Approximately one-fourth of the $10 million loss in the International businesses was driven by quarterly timing differences, as well as integration costs related to the new Cobra joint venture in India. International business volume was 54 percent higher in the quarter, primarily due to the addition of the Si'hai brands in China and the Modelo brands in Japan, along with growth of Carling in Europe and Coors Light in Latin America and China. Marketing, general and administrative expense for International was $20.2 million in the quarter, an increase of $7.1 million, due to increased marketing, sales and other investments in our priority international markets. Corporate marketing, general and administrative expense was $28.3 million in the quarter, an increase of $0.5 million. Corporate net interest expense was $29.1 million, an increase of $2 million compared to a year ago, due primarily to foreign currency movements and moderately higher debt levels this year. Special and Other Non-Core Items The following special and other non-core items have been excluded from underlying pretax earnings. During the quarter, the Company reported net special charges of $11.0 million pretax, which was driven by a $7.6 million reduction in fixed asset values and early retirement incentive expenses of $1.2 million in Canada, along with UK and Canada restructuring charges of $3.0 million, which were partly offset by a $2.0 million gain related to a reduction in the Company's guarantee of Ontario Beer Store debt. Other non-core items resulted in a $0.1 million pretax gain, due to a reduction in an environmental reserve. During the quarter, MillerCoors reported special charges totaling $1.1 million, primarily related to costs associated with the joint venture integration. This equates to $0.4 million at Molson Coors' 42 percent economic ownership share. 2011 Second Quarter Earnings Conference Call Molson Coors Brewing Company will conduct an earnings conference call with financial analysts and investors at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time today to discuss the Company's 2011 second quarter results.

Footnotes:(1) Unless otherwise indicated, all $ amounts are in U.S. Dollars and all comparative results are for the Company's fiscal second quarter ended June 25, 2011, compared to the fiscal second quarter ended June 26, 2010. (2) The Company calculates non-GAAP underlying income by excluding special and other non-core items from the nearest U.S. GAAP earnings measure, net income from continuing operations attributable to MCBC. To calculate underlying income in the second quarter of 2011, the Company excluded non-core gains, losses and expenses, as well as special items. For further details, please see the section “Special and Other Non-Core Items”, along with tables for reconciliations to the nearest U.S. GAAP measures. (3) Note that local currency results for Canada exclude the $2.7 million negative impact of foreign currency hedges in Other (Expense) Income, net, in the second quarter of 2011, and a $1.1 million negative impact in the second quarter of 2010, as it is meaningful to consider these hedges only when viewing the Canada segment in U.S. dollars.

Our management uses underlying income as a measure of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis; as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; and in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance. We believe that underlying income performance is used by and is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance because it provides them with an additional tool to evaluate our performance without regard to items such as special items, which can vary substantiallyfrom company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets and capital structure.           Molson Coors Brewing CompanyTable 4: Reconciliation of Net Income Attributable to MillerCoors to MCBC U.S. Segment Underlying Pretax Income(In Millions)   Three Months Ended     Six Months EndedJune 30, 2011   June 30, 2010     June 30, 2011   June 30, 2010Net Income Attributable to MillerCoors$398.7$391.2$633.4$599.8Multiply: MCBC economic interest % in MillerCoors   42 %     42 %       42 %     42 % MCBC proportionate share of MillerCoors net income $ 167.4 $ 164.3 $ 266.0 $ 251.9 (Less)/Add: Amortization of the difference between MCBCcontributed cost basis and the underlying equity in net assets ofMillerCoors (1) 2.5 (0.6 ) 4.9 1.9 (Less)/Add: Share-based compensation adjustment (2)   1.9       (0.1 )       2.1       0.8   US GAAP - Equity Income in MillerCoors$171.8     $163.6       $273.0     $254.6   (Less)/Add: Proportionate share of MillerCoors special items (3)   0.4       (0.6 )       1.0       3.0   U.S. Segment Underlying Pretax Income (Non-GAAP)$172.2     $163.0       $274.0     $257.6                                       Notes: (1) Our net investment in MillerCoors is based on the carrying values of the net assets it contributed to the joint venture which is less than our proportional share of underlying equity (42%) of MillerCoors [contributed by both Coors Brewing Company (CBC) and Miller Brewing Company] by approximately $619 million. This difference is being amortized as additional equity income over the remaining useful lives of long-lived assets giving rise to the difference. For non-depreciable assets, such as goodwill, no adjustment is being recorded. This also includes the impact of impairments and other adjustments occurring since formation that affect the basis difference.   (2) The net adjustment is to record all share-based compensation associated with pre-existing equity awards to be settled in MCBC Class B common stock held by former CBC employees now employed by MillerCoors and to eliminate all share-based compensation impacts related to preexisting SABMiller plc equity awards held by former Miller Brewing Company employees now employed by MillerCoors.   (3) MillerCoors special items were ($1.1) million and $1.5 million for Q2 2011 and Q2 2010, respectively, and ($2.5) million and ($7.1) million for the first half of 2011 and first half of 2010, respectively.
