Note 2    Summary of significant accounting policies

 

Significant accounting policies adopted for the preparation of these Interim Consolidated Financial Statements are described below:

2.1Basis of preparation

 

The accompanying interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), issued by the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB), which have been uniformly applied in the periods presented.

 

The Interim Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a historical basis, as modified by the subsequent valuation of financial assets and financial liabilities (including derivative instruments) at fair value.

 

The preparation of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires that management uses its professional judgment in the process of applying the Company’s accounting policies. See Note 3 - Estimates and application of professional judgment for disclosure of significant accounting estimates and judgments. At the date of issuance of these Interim Consolidated Financial Statements, new Standards, Improvements, Amendments and Interpretations to existing standards have been issued, although these have not yet become effective, and the Company has not adopted in advance or applied whenever applicable.

 

The application of new accounting pronouncements as of January 1, 2021, had no significant effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

 

These standards are required to be applied by the following dates:

 

Next Standard Improvements and Amendments Mandatory for years beginning in:
Amendments to IAS 1 - IAS 8 Presentation of financial statements, and accounting policies, changes in accounting estimates and errors. January 1, 2023
Amendments to IAS 12 Deferred Tax Related to Assets and Liabilities Arising from a Single Transaction. January 1, 2023
IFRS 17 Insurance contracts. January 1, 2023
IFRS 17 - IFRS 9 Initial application and comparative information. January 1, 2023
Amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of financial statements and accouting policies,classification and liquidation of labialities January 1, 2024
     

 

The Company estimates the adoption of these new Standards, Improvements, Amendments and Interpretations mentioned in the table above will not have a material impact on the Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

2.2Basis of consolidation

 

Subsidiaries

 

Subsidiaries are entities over which the Company has power to direct their financial and operating policies, which generally is the result of ownership of more than half of the voting rights. When assessing whether the Company controls another entity, the existence and effect of potential voting rights that are currently liable to be exercised at the date of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements is considered. Subsidiaries are consolidated from the date on which control was obtained by the Company, and are excluded from consolidation as of the date the Company loses such control.

 

The acquisition method is used for the accounting of acquisition of subsidiaries. The acquisition cost is the fair value of the assets delivered, of the equity instruments issued and of the liabilities incurred or assumed as of the exchange date. The identifiable assets acquired, as well as the identifiable liabilities and contingencies assumed in a business combination are initially valued at their fair value on the acquisition date, regardless the scope of minority interests. Goodwill is initially measured as the excess of the aggregate of the consideration transferred and the fair value of non-controlling interest over the net identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed. If this consideration is lower than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, the difference is recognized as income.

Joint operations

 

As explained in Note 1- General information, for the joint arrangements that qualify as joint operations, the Company recognizes its share of the assets, liabilities and income in respect to its interest in the joint operations in accordance with IFRS 11.

 

Intercompany transaction

 

Intercompany transactions, balances and unrealized gains from transactions between the Company’s entities are eliminated in consolidation. Unrealized losses are also eliminated, unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred. Whenever necessary, the accounting policies of subsidiaries are amended to ensure uniformity with the policies adopted by the Company.

 

Non-controlling Interest

 

Non-controlling interest is presented in the Equity section of the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. The net income attributable to equity holder of the parent and non-controlling interest are each disclosed separately in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income after net income.

 

Investments accounted for using the equity method

 

Joint ventures and associates

 

The Company maintains investments in joint arrangements that qualify as joint ventures, which correspond to a contractual agreement by which two or more parties carry out an economic activity that is subject to joint control, and normally involves the establishment of a separate entity in which each party has a share based on a shareholders’ agreement. In addition, the Company maintains investments in associates which are defined as entities in which the investor does not have significant influence and are not a subsidiary or a joint venture.

 

The Company accounts for its participation in joint arrangements that qualify as joint ventures and in associates using the equity method. The financial statements of the joint venture are prepared for the same year, under accounting policies consistent with those of the Company. Adjustments are made to agree any difference in accounting policies that may exist with the Company’s accounting policies.

 

Whenever the Company contributes or sells assets to companies under joint control or associates, any income or loss arising from the transaction is recognized based on how the asset is realized. When the Company purchases assets from those companies, it does not recognize its share in the income or loss of the joint venture in respect to such transaction until the asset is sold or realized.

2.3Financial information as per operating segments

 

The Company has defined three operating segments which are essentially defined with respect to its revenues in the geographic areas of commercial activity: 1.- Chile, 2.- International business and 3.- Wine.

 

These operating segments mentioned are consistent with the way the Company is managed and how results will be reported by CCU. These segments reflect separate operating results which are regularly reviewed by chief operating decision maker in order to make decisions about the resources to be allocated to the segment and assess its performance (See Note 6 - Financial information as per operating segment).

 

The segments performance is measured according to several indicators, of which OR (Adjust Operating Result), OR before Exceptional Items (EI), ORBDA (Adjust Operating Result Before Depreciation and Amortization), ORBDA before EI, ORBDA margin (ORBDA’s % of total revenues for the operating segment), the volumes and Net sales. Sales between segments are conducted using terms and conditions at current market rates.

 

The Company defined the Adjusted Operating Result as the Net incomes (losses) before Other gains (losses), Net financial cost, Equity and income from joint ventures and associates, Gains (losses) on exchange differences, Results as per adjustment units and Income tax, and the ORBDA, for the Company purposes, is defined as Adjusted Operating Result before Depreciation and Amortization.

2.4Foreign currency and adjustment units

 

Presentation and functional currency

 

The Company and subsidiaries uses the Chilean peso (Ch$ or CLP) as its functional currency and for the presentation of its financial statements. The functional currency has been determined considering the economic environment in which the Company carries out its operations and the currency in which the main cash flows are generated. The functional currency of the U.S., Argentinian, Uruguayan, Paraguayan and Bolivian and and United Kingdom subsidiaries is the US Dollar, Argentine Peso, Uruguayan Peso, Paraguayan Guarani, Bolivian and Sterling Pound, respectively. The functional currency of the joint venture in Chile and Colombia and associate in Argentine and Perú is the Chilean Peso, Colombian Peso and Argentine Peso and the Sol, respectively.

 

Transactions and balances

 

Transactions in foreign currencies and adjustment units (“Unidad de Fomento” or “UF”) are initially recorded at the exchange rate of the corresponding currency or adjustment unit as of the date on which the transaction occurs. The Unidad de Fomento (UF) is a Chilean inflation-indexed peso-denominated monetary unit. The UF rate is set daily in advance based on changes in the previous month’s inflation rate. At the close of each Interim Consolidated Statement of Financial Position, the monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies and adjustment units are translated into Chilean pesos at the exchange rate of the corresponding currency or adjustment unit. The Gains (losses) on exchange differences arising, both from the liquidation of foreign currency transactions, as well as from the valuation of foreign currency monetary assets and liabilities, are included in the Statement of income, in Gains (losses) on exchange differences, while the difference arising from the changes in adjustment units are recorded in the Statement of income as Result as per adjustment units.

 

For consolidation purposes, the assets and liabilities of the subsidiaries whose functional currency is different from the Chilean peso and not operating in countries whose economy is considered hyperinflationary, are translated into Chilean pesos using the exchange rates prevailing at the date of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and Gains (losses) on exchange differences originated by the conversion of assets and liabilities, are recorded under Reserve of exchange differences on translation within Other equity reserves. Incomes, costs and expenses are translated at the average monthly exchange rate for the respective fiscal years. These exchange rates have not suffered significant fluctuations during these months.

 

The results and financial situation in CCU Group's entities which have a functional currency different from the presentation currency being their functional currency, the currency of a hyperinflationary economy (as the case of subsidiaries in Argentina as from 1 July 2018 as described below) are converted into the presentation currency as established in IAS 21 and IAS 29.

 

Financial information in hyperinflationary economies

 

Inflation in Argentina has shown significant increases since the beginning of 2018. The three-year cumulative inflation rate, calculated using different combinations of consumer price indices, has exceeded 100% for several months, and it is still increasing. The three-year cumulative inflation calculated using the general price index has already exceeded 100%. Therefore, as prescribed by IAS 29, Argentina was declared a hyperinflationary economy as of July 1, 2018.

 

In accordance with the foregoing, IAS 29 must be applied by all those entities whose functional currency is the Argentine peso for the accounting periods ended after July 1, 2018, as if the economy had always been hyperinflationary. In this regard, IAS 29 requires that the financial statements of an entity whose functional currency is the currency of a hyperinflationary country be restated in terms of the purchasing power in force at the end of the reporting period. This implies that the restatement of non-monetary items must be made from their date of origin, last restatement, appraisal or other particular date in some very specific cases.

 

The adjustment factor used in each case is that obtained based on the combined index of the National Consumer Price Index (CPI), with the Wholesale Price Index (IPIM), published by the National Institute of Statistics and Census of the Argentinian Republic (INDEC), according to the series prepared and published by the Argentine Federation of Professional Councils of Economic Sciences (FACPCE).

 

For consolidation purposes, subsidiaries whose functional currency is the Argentine peso, paragraph 43 of IAS 21 has been considered which requires that the financial statements of a subsidiary that has the functional currency of a hyperinflationary economy be restated in accordance with IAS 29 before being converted at the closing exchange rate on the reporting date and to be included in the consolidated financial statements.

The re-expression of non-monetary items is made from the date of initial recognition in the statements of financial position and considering that the financial statements are prepared under the criteria of historical cost.

 

Hyperinflation re-expression will be recorded until the period in which the entity's economy ceases to be considered a hyperinflationary economy; at that time, adjustments made by hyperinflation will be part of the cost of non-monetary assets and liabilities.

2.5Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents include available cash, bank balances, time deposits at financial entities, investments in mutual funds and financial instruments acquired under resale agreements, as well as highly liquid short-term investments, all at a fixed interest rate, normally with original maturity of up to three months.

 

2.6Other financial assets

 

Other financial assets include money market securities, derivative contracts with financial institutions and time deposits with maturities of more than 90 days.

 

2.7Financial instruments

 

IFRS 9 - Financial instruments, replaces the IAS 39 - Financial instruments, for the annual periods beginning on January 1, 2018 and which brings together three aspects of accounting and which are: classification and measurement; impairment and hedge accounting.

 

Financial assets

 

The Company recognizes a financial asset in its Interim Consolidated Statement of Financial Position as follows:

 

As of the date of initial recognition, management classifies its financial assets: (i) at fair value through profit and loss (ii) Trade and other current receivables and (iii) hedging derivatives. The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial assets were acquired. For instruments not classified at fair value through Income, any cost attributable to the transaction is recognized as part of the asset’s value.

 

The fair value of instruments that are actively traded in formal markets is determined by the traded price on the Interim Financial Statement closing date. For investments without an active market, fair value is determined using valuation techniques including (i) the use of recent market transactions, (ii) references to the current market value of another financial instrument of similar characteristics, (iii) discounted cash flows and (iv) other valuation models.

 

After initial recognition, the Company values the financial assets as described below:

 

Trade and other current receivables

 

Trade receivable credits or accounts are recognized according to their invoice value.

 

The Company purchases credit insurance covering approximately 90% and 99% of individually significant accounts receivable balances for the domestic market and the international market, of total trade receivable, respectively, net of a 10% deductible.

 

An impairment of accounts receivable balances is recorded when there is objective evidence that the Company not will be capable to collect amounts according to the original terms. Some indicators that an account receivable has impairment are the financial problems, initiation of a bankruptcy, financial restructuring and age of the balances of our customers.

 

Estimated losses from bad debts is measured in an amount equal to the "expectations of credit losses", using the simplified approach established in IFRS 9 and in order to determine whether or not there is impairment from portfolio, a risk analysis is carried out according to the historical experience (three years) on the uncollectibility, also considering other factors of aging until reaching 100% of the balance in most of the debts older than 180 days, with the exception of those cases that in accordance with current policies, losses are estimated due to partial deterioration based on a case by case analysis.

 

The Company considers that these financial assets are past-due when: i) The debtor is unlikely to pay its obligations and the Company it hasn’t still taken actions such as to claim the credit insurance, or ii) The financial asset has exceeded the contractually agreed expiration date.

 

a)Measurement of expected loss

 

The Expected Credit Loss corresponds to the probability of credit losses according to recent history considering the uncollectability of the last three mobile years. These historical indices are adjusted according to the monthly payment and amount of the different historical trade receivables. Additionally, the portfolio is analyzed according to its solvency probability for the future, its recent financial history and market conditions, to determine the category of the client, for the constitution of impairment in relation to its defined risk.

b)Credit impairment

 

On each issuing date of the Financial Statements, the Company evaluates if these financial assets measured at amortized cost have credit impairment. A financial asset has a "credit impairment" when one or more events occur that have a detrimental impact on the estimation of future cash flows. Additionally, the Company includes information on the effects of modifications to the contractual effective flows (repactations), which are minor and correspond to specific cases with strategic clients of the Company.

 

Additionally, the company maintains credit insurance for individually significant accounts receivable. Impairment losses are recorded in the Consolidated Statement of Income in the period incurred.

 

Current trade receivable credits and accounts are initially recognized at their nominal value and are not discounted The Company has determined that the calculation of the amortized cost is not materially different from the invoiced amount because the transactions do not have significant associated costs.

 

Financial liabilities

 

The Company recognizes a financial liability in its InterimConsolidated Statement of Financial Position as follows:

 

Interest-bearing loans and financial obligations

 

Interest-bearing loans and financial obligations are initially recognized at the fair value of the resources obtained, less incurred costs that are directly attributable to the transaction. After initial recognition, interest-bearing loans and obligations are measured at amortized cost. The difference between the net amount received and the value to be paid is recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income over the term of the loan, using the effective interest rate method.

 

Interest paid and accrued related to loans and obligations used to finance its operations are presented under finance costs.

 

Interest-bearing loans and obligations maturing within twelve months are classified as current liabilities, unless the Company has the unconditional right to defer payment of the obligation for at least twelve months after the closing date of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statement.

 

Trade and other payables

 

Trade and other payables are initially recognized at nominal value because they do not differ significantly from their fair value. The Company has determined that no significant differences exist between the carrying value and amortized cost using the effective interest rate method.

 

Derivative Instruments

 

All derivative financial instruments are initially recognized at fair value as of the date of the derivative contract and subsequently re-measured at their fair value. Gains and losses resulting from fair value measurement are recorded in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income as gains or losses due to fair value of financial instruments, unless the derivative instrument is designated as a hedging instrument.

 

Financial Instruments at fair value through profit and loss include financial assets classified as held for trading and financial assets which have been designated as such by the Company. Financial assets are classified as held for trading when acquired for the purpose of selling them in the short term. The fair value of derivative financial instruments that do not qualify for hedge accounting is immediately recognized in the consolidated statement of income under Other gains (losses). The fair value of these derivatives is recorded under Other financial assets and Other financial liabilities.

 

Derivative instruments classified as hedges are accounted for as cash flow hedges.

 

In order to classify a derivative as a hedging instrument for accounting purposes, the Company documents (i) as of the transaction date or at designation time, the relationship or correlation between the hedging instrument and the hedged item, as well as the risk management purposes and strategies, (ii) the assessment, both at designation date as well as on a continuing basis, whether the derivative instrument used in the hedging is highly transaction effective to offset changes in inception cash flows of the hedged item. A hedge is considered effective when changes in the cash flows of the underlying directly attributable to the risk hedged are offset with the changes in fair value, or in the cash flows of the hedging instrument with effectiveness between 80% to 125%.

The total fair value of a hedging derivative is classified as assets or financial liabilities in Other non-current if the maturity of the hedged item is more than 12 months and as other assets or current liabilities if the remaining maturity of the hedged item is less than 12 months. The ineffective portion of these instruments can be viewed in Other gains (losses) of the Interim Consolidated Statements of Income. The effective portion of the change in the fair value of derivative instruments that are designated and qualified as cash flow hedges are initially recognized in Cash Flow Hedge Reserve in a separate component of Equity. The income or loss related to the ineffective portion is immediately recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income. The amounts accumulated in Equity are reclassified in Income during the same period in which the corresponding hedged item is reflected in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income. When a cash flow hedge ceases to comply with the hedge accounting criteria, any accumulated income or loss existing in Equity remains in Equity and is recognized when the expected transaction is finally recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income. When it is estimated that an expected transaction will not occur, the accumulated gain or loss recorded in Equity is immediately recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income.

 

Derivative instruments are classified as held for trading unless they are classified as hedge instruments.

 

Deposits for returns of bottles and containers

 

Deposits for returns of bottles and containers corresponds to the liabilities registered by the guarantees of money received from customers for bottles and containers placed at their disposal and represents the value that will be returned to the customer when it returns the bottles to the Company in good condition along with the original invoice. This value is determined by the estimation of the bottles and containers in circulation that are expected to be returned to the Company in the course of time based on the historic experience, physical counts held by clients and independent studies over the quantities that are in the hands of end consumers, valued at the average weighted guarantees for each type of bottles and containers.

 

The Company does not intend to make significant repayment of these deposits within the next 12 months. Such amounts are classified within current liabilities, under the line Other financial liabilities, since the Company does not have the legal ability to defer this payment for a period exceeding 12 months. This liability is not discounted, since it is considered a payable on demand, with the original invoice and the return of the respective bottles and containers and it does not have adjustability or interest clauses of any kind in its origin.

 

2.8Financial asset impairment

 

As of each Interim consolidated financial statement date the Company assesses whether a financial asset or group of financial assets is impaired.

 

The Company assesses impairment of accounts receivable collectively by grouping the financial assets according to similar risk characteristics, which indicate the debtor’s capacity to comply with their obligations under the agreed upon conditions. When there is objective evidence that a loss due to impairment has been incurred in the accounts receivable, the loss amount is recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income, as Administrative expenses.

 

If the impairment loss amount decreases during subsequent period and such decrease can be objectively related to an event occurred after recognition of the impairment, the previously recognized impairment loss is reversed.

 

Any subsequent impairment reversal is recognized in Income provided that the carrying amount of the asset does not exceed its value as of the date the impairment was recognized.

 

2.9Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost acquisition or production cost and net realizable value. The production cost of finished products and of products under processing includes raw material, direct labor, indirect manufacturing expenses based on a normal operational capacity and other costs incurred to place the products at the locations and in the conditions necessary for sale, net of discounts attributable to inventories.

 

The net realizable value is the estimated sale price in the normal course of business, less marketing and distribution expenses. When market conditions cause the production cost to be higher than its net realizable value, an allowance for assets deterioration is registered for the difference in value. This allowance for inventory deterioration also includes amounts related to obsolete items due to low turnover, technical obsolescence and products withdrawn from the market.

 

The inventories and cost of products sold, is determined using the Weighted Average Cost (WAC). The Company estimates that most of the inventories have a high turnover.

The materials and raw materials purchased from third parties are valued at their acquisition cost; once used, they are incorporated in finished products using the WAC methodology.

 

2.10Current biological assets

 

Under current Biological assets, the Company includes the costs associated with agricultural activities (grapes), which are capitalized up to the harvesting date, when they become part of the inventory cost for subsequent processes. The Company considers that the costs associated with agricultural activities represent a reasonable approximation to their fair value.

 

2.11Other non-financial assets

 

Other non-financial assets mainly include prepayments associated with advertising related to contracts regarding the making of commercials which are work in progress and have not yet been shown (current and non-current), payments to insurances and advances to suppliers in relation with certain purchases of property, plant and equipment. Additionally paid guarantees related with leases and materials to be consumed related to industrial safety implements.

 

2.12Property, plant and equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment items are recorded at their historic cost, less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. The cost includes both disbursements directly attributable to the asset acquisition or construction, as well as the financing interest directly related to certain qualified assets, which are capitalized during the construction or acquisition period, as long as these assets qualify for these purposes considering the period necessary to complete and prepare the assets to be operative. Disbursements after the purchase or acquisition are only capitalized when it is likely that the future economic benefits associated to the investment will flow to the Company, and costs may be reasonably measured. Subsequent disbursements related to repairs and maintenance are recorded as expenses when incurred.

 

Depreciation of property, plant and equipment items, including assets under financial lease, is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment items, taking into account their estimated residual value. When an asset is formed by significant components with different useful lives, each part is separately depreciated. Property, plant and equipment useful lives and residual values estimates are reviewed and adjusted at each Interim Financial Statement closing date, if necessary.

 

The estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment are detailed as follows:

 

Type of Assets Number of years
Land Indefinite
Buildings and Constructions 20 to 60
Machinery and equipment 10 to 25
Fumiture and accesories 5 to 10
Other equipment (coolers) 5 to 8
Glass containers, and plastic containers 3 to 12
Vines in production 30
   

 

Gains and losses resulting from the sale of properties, plants and equipment are calculated comparing their book values against the related sales proceeds and are included in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income.

 

Biological assets held by Viña San Pedro Tarapacá S.A. (VSPT) and its subsidiaries consist of vines in formation and in production. Harvested grapes are used for subsequent wine production.

 

Vines under production are valued at the historic cost, less depreciation and any impairment loss.

 

Depreciation of vines in production is recorded using the straight-line method over the 30-year estimated average production life, which is periodically assessed. Vines in formation are not depreciated until they start producing.

 

Costs incurred in acquiring and planting new vines are capitalized.

When the carrying amount of a property, plant and equipment item exceeds its recoverable value, it is immediately written down to its recoverable amount (See Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies 2.17).

 

2.13Leases

 

Lease contracts are recorded by recognizing an asset for the right to use the assets subject to operational lease contracts recorded under Right of use assets and a liability recorded under Current lease liabilities, which are equivalent to the present value of the payments associated to the contract. It should be noted that the assets and liabilities arising from a lease contract are initially measured at its present value.

 

Regarding the effects on the Consolidated Statement of Income, the depreciation of the right of use is recognized on a monthly basis using the straight-line method over the lease term, together with the financial cost associated to the lease; both are recognized in our P&L during the lease period in order to produce a constant periodic interest rate over the remaining balance of the liability. In case of modifications to the lease agreement, such as lease value, maturity, readjustment index, associated interest rate, etc., the lessee recognizes the amount of the new measurement of the lease liability as an adjustment to the asset for the right of use.

 

Prior to the adoption of IFRS 16, the Company classified leases as finance leases when all the risks and rewards associated with the ownership of the assets were substantially transferred. All other leases were considered as operational. The assets acquired through financial leasing were recorded as non-current assets, initially being valued at the present value of future minimum payments or at their fair value if lower, reflecting in the liability the debt with the lessee. In this scenario the payments were accounted as the payments of the debt plus the corresponding financial cost, which is accounted as the financial cost of the period. In case of operating leases, the expense was accounted based on the duration of the lease agreement for the value of the accrued service.

 

2.14Investment properties assets

 

Investment property consist of land and buildings held by the Company for the purpose of generating appreciation and not to be used in the normal course of business, and are recorded at historical cost less any impairment loss. Depreciation of investment property, excluding land, is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset, taking into account their estimated residual value.

 

2.15Intangible assets other than goodwill

 

Commercial trademarks

 

The Company’s commercial trademarks are intangible assets with indefinite useful lives that are presented at historical cost, less any impairment loss. The Company believes that through investing in marketing, trademarks maintain their value, consequently they are considered as having indefinite useful lives and they are not amortizable. These assets are tested for impairment annually or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate potential impairment (See Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies 2.17).

 

Software program

 

Software program licenses are capitalized at the value of the costs incurred in their acquisition and in preparing the software for use. Such costs are amortized over their estimated useful lives (4 to 7 years). The maintenance costs of software programs are recognized as an expense in the year in which they are incurred.

 

Water rights

 

Water rights acquired by the Company correspond to the right to use existing water from natural sources, and are recorded at their attributed cost as of the date of transition to IFRS. Since such rights are perpetual they are not amortizable, however they are tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if events or circumstances indicate potential impairment (See Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies 2.17).

 

Distribution rights

 

Corresponds to rights acquired to distribute different products. These rights are amortized over their estimated useful lives.

Research and development

 

Research and development expenses are recognized in the period incurred.

 

2.16Goodwill

 

Goodwill arises on the acquisition of subsidiaries and represents the excess of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquire and the acquisition date fair value of any previous equity interest in the acquire over the fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired, If the total of consideration transferred, non-controlling interest recognized and previously held interest measured at fair value is less than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, in the case of a bargain purchase, the difference is recognized directly in the statement of income. Godwill is accounted for at its cost value less accumulated impairment losses.

 

For the purpose of impairment testing, goodwill is allocated to each of the Cash Generating Units (CGUs), or groups of CGUs, that is expected to benefit from the synergies of a business combination. Each unit or group of units (See Note 18 - Goodwill) to which the goodwill is allocated represents the lowest level within the entity at which goodwill is monitored for internal management purposes, which is not larger than a business segment. The CGUs to which the goodwill is assigned are tested for impairment annually or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate potential impairment.

 

An impairment loss is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount of the CGU exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount of the CGU is the higher of value in use and the fair value less costs to sell.

 

An impairment loss is first allocated to goodwill to reduce its carrying amount, and then to other assets in the CGU. Once recognized, impairment losses are not subsequently reversed.

 

Goodwill that forms part of the carrying amount of an investment in a joint venture is not separately recognized. The entire carrying amount of the investment in joint venture is assessed for impairment as a single asset provided that there are indications that the investment may be impaired.

2.17Impairment of non-financial assets other than goodwill

 

The Company annually assesses the existence of non-financial asset impairment indicators. When indicators exist, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the impaired asset. If it cannot estimate the recoverable amount of the impaired asset at an individual level, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the cash generating unit to which the asset belongs.

 

For intangible assets with indefinite useful lives which are not amortized, the Company performs all required testing to ensure that the carrying amount does not exceed the recoverable value.

 

The recoverable value is defined as the fair value, less selling cost or value in use, whichever is higher. Value in use is determined by estimating future cash flows associated to the asset or to the cash generating unit, discounted from its current value by using interest rates before taxes, which reflect the time value of money and the specific risks of the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its recoverable amount, the Company records an impairment loss in the Statement of Income.

 

For the rest of non-financial assets other than goodwill and intangibles with indefinite useful lives, the Company assesses the existence of impairment indicators when an event or change in business circumstances indicates that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable and impairment is recognized when the carrying amount is higher than the recoverable value.

 

The Company annually assesses whether the impairment indicators of non-financial assets for which impairment losses were recorded during prior years have disappeared or decreased. In the event of such situation, the recoverable amount of the specific asset is recalculated and its carrying amount is increased, if necessary. Such increase is recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income as reversal of impairment losses. The increase in the value of the previously impaired asset is recognized only when it is originated by changes in the assumptions used to calculate the recoverable amount. The increase in the asset due to reversal of the impairment loss is limited to the amount that would have been recorded had the impairment not occurred.

2.18Non-current assets of disposal groups classified as held for sale

 

The Company register as non-current assets of disposal groups classified as held for sale as Property, plant and equipment expected to be sale, for which active sale negotiations have begun.

 

These assets are measured at the lower of their carrying amount and the estimated fair value, less selling costs. From the moment in which the assets are classified as non-current assets of disposal group classified held for sale they are no longer depreciated.

 

2.19Income taxes

 

The income tax account is composed of current income tax associated to legal income tax obligations and deferred taxes recognized in accordance with IAS 12. Income tax is recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income by Function, except when it is related to items recorded directly in Equity, in which case the tax effect is also recognized in Equity.

 

Income Tax Obligation

 

Income tax obligations are recognized in the financial statements on the basis of the best estimates of taxable profits as of the financial statement closing date, and the income tax rate valid as of that date in the countries where the Company operates.

 

Deferred Tax

 

Deferred taxes are those the Company expects to pay or to recover in the future, due to temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities (carrying amount for financial reporting purposes) and the corresponding tax basis of such assets and liabilities used to determine the profits subject to taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are generally recognized for all temporary differences, and they are calculated at the rates that will be valid on the date the liabilities are paid or the assets realized.

 

Deferred tax is recognized on temporary differences arising from investments in subsidiaries and associates, except in cases where the Company is able to control the date on which temporary differences will be reversed, and it is likely that they will not be reverted in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets, including those arising from tax losses are recognized provided it is likely that in the future there will be taxable profits against which deductible temporary differences can be offset.

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legal right to offset tax assets against tax liabilities, and the deferred tax is related to the same taxable entity and the same tax authority.

 

2.20Employees benefits

 

Employees Vacation

 

The Company accrues the expense associated with staff vacation when the employee earns the benefit.

 

Employees Bonuses

 

The Company recognizes a liability and an expense for bonuses when it’s contractually obligated, it is estimated that, depending on the income requirement at a given date, bonuses will be paid out at the end of the year.

 

Severance Indemnity

 

The Company recognizes a liability for the payment of irrevocable severance indemnities, originated from the collective and individual agreements entered into with employees. Such obligation is determined based on the actuarial value of the accrued cost of the benefit, a method which considers several factors in the calculation, such as estimates of future continuance, mortality rates, future salary increases and discount rates. The determined value is shown at its present value by using the accrued benefits for years of service method. The discount rates are determined by reference to market interest rates curves. The current losses and gains are directly recorded in Interim Consolidated Statement of Income.

 

According to the amendment of IAS 19, the actuarial gains and losses are recognized directly in Interim Consolidated Statemen of Comprehensive Income, under Equity and, according to the accounting policies of the Company, financial costs related to the severance indemnity are directly recorded under financial cost in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income.

2.21Provisions

 

Provisions are recognized when: (i) the Company has a current legal or implicit obligation, as a result of past events, (ii) it is probable that monetary resources will be required to settle the obligation and (iii) the amounts can be reasonably established. The amounts recognized as provisions as of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statement closing date, are Management’s best estimates, and consider the necessary disbursements to liquidate the obligation.

 

The concepts used by the Company to establish provisions charged against income correspond mainly to civil, labor and taxation proceedings that could affect the Company (See Note 24 - Other provisions).

 

2.22Revenue recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when it is likely that economic benefits will flow to the Company and these can be reliably measured. Income is measured at the fair value of the economic benefits received or to be received, and is presented net of valued added tax, specific taxes, returns, discounts and rebates.

 

Goods sold are recognized after the Company has transferred to the buyer all the risks and benefits inherent to ownership of the goods, and it do not have the right to dispose of them. In general, this means that sales are recorded when the risks and benefits of ownership are transferred to the customer, pursuant to the terms agreed in the commercial agreements and once the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

In relation to IFRS 15, the Company has applied the criteria established in this standard for these Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Sale of products in the domestic market

 

The Company obtains its revenues, both in Chile and Argentina, mainly from the sales of beers, soft drinks, mineral waters, purified water, nectars, wines, cider and spirits, products that are distributed through retail establishments, wholesale distributors and supermarket chains, and none of which act as commercial agents of the Company. Such revenues in the domestic markets, net of the value added tax, specific taxes, returns, discounts and rebates to clients, are recognized when products are delivered, together with the transfer of all risks and benefits related to them and once the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

Exports

 

In general, the Company’s sales delivery conditions are the basis for revenue recognition related to exports.

 

The structure of revenue recognition is based on the grouping of Incoterms, mainly in the following groups:

 

"FOB (Free on Board) shipping point", by which the buyer organizes and pays for transportation, consequently the sales occur and revenue is recognized upon delivery of the merchandise to the transporter hired by the buyer.

 

“CIF (Cost, Insurance & Freight) and similar", by which the Company organizes and pays for external transportation and some other expenses, although CCU ceases being responsible for the merchandise after delivering it to the marine or air shipping company in accordance with the relevant terms. The sale occurs and revenue is recognized upon the delivery of merchandise at the port of destination.

 

In case of discrepancies between the commercial agreements and Incoterms, the former shall prevail.

 

The revenue recognition related to exports are recorded net of specific taxes, returns, discounts and rebates to clients, are recognized when products are delivered, together with the transfer of all risks and benefits related to them and once the performance obligation is satisfied.

 

2.23Commercial agreements with distributors and supermarket chains

 

The Company enters into commercial agreements with its clients, distributors and supermarkets through which they establish: (i) volume discounts and other client variables, (ii) promotional discounts that correspond to an additional rebate on the price of the products sold due to commercial initiatives development (temporary promotions), (iii) payment for services and rendering of counter-services (advertising and promotional agreements, use of preferential spaces and others) and (iv) shared advertising, which corresponds to the Company’s participation in advertising campaigns, promotional magazines and opening of new sales locations.

Note 3    Estimates and application of professional judgment

 

The preparation of Financial Statement Consolidated requires estimates and assumptions from Management affecting the amounts included in the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements and their related notes. The estimates made and the assumptions used by the Company are based on historical experience, changes in the industry and the information supplied by external qualified sources. Nevertheless, final results could differ from the estimates under certain conditions.

 

Significant estimates and accounting policies are defined as those that are important to correctly reflect the Company’s financial position and income, and/or those that require a high level of judgment by Management.

 

The primary estimates and professional judgments relate to the following concepts:

 

The valuation of goodwill acquired to determine the existence of losses due to potential impairment (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.16) and Note 18- Goodwill).
The valuation of commercial trademarks to determine the existence of potential losses due to potential impairment (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.17) and Note 17 – Intangible assets other than goodwill).
The assumptions used in the current calculation of liabilities and obligations to employees (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.20) and Note 26 – Employee benefits).
Useful lives of property, plant and equipment (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.12) and Note 19 – Property, plant and equipment) and intangibles (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.15) and Note 17 - Intangible assets other than goodwill).
The assumptions used for calculating the fair of value financial instruments (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.7) and Note 7 – Financial instruments).
The likelihood of occurrence and amounts estimated in an uncertain or contingent matter (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.21) and Note 24 – Other provisions).
The valuation of current Biological assets (Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (2.10) and Note 13 – Biological assets).

 

Such estimates are based on the best available information of the events analyzed to date in these Interim Consolidated Financial Statements. However, it is possible that events that may occur in the future may result in adjustments to such estimates, which would be recorded prospectively.

 

 

Note 4    Accounting changes

 

During the six months ended on June 30, 2022, there have been no changes in the use of accounting principles or relevant changes in any accounting estimates with regard to December 31, 2021, that have affected these Interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 5    Risk Administration

 

Risk administration

 

In companies where CCU has a controlling interest, the Company’s Administration and Finance Management Department provides a centralized service for the group’s companies to obtain financing and administration of exchange rates, interest rates, liquidity, inflation, raw materials and credit risks. Such activity operates in accordance with a framework of policies and procedures which is regularly reviewed to ensure it fulfils the purpose of managing the risks by business needs.

 

In companies with a non-controlling interest (VSPT, CPCH, Aguas CCU-Nestlé S.A., Bebidas del Paraguay S.A., Cervecería Kunstmann S.A. and Bebidas Bolivianas BBO S.A.) the responsibility for this service lies with the respective Board of Directors and respective Administration and Finance Management Department. When applicable, the Board of Directors and Directors Committee has the final responsibility for establishing and reviewing the risk administration structure, as well as for the reviewing significant changes made to risk management policies.

 

In accordance with financial risk policies, the Company uses derivate instruments only for the purpose of hedging exposure to interest rate and exchange rate risks arising from the Company’s operations and its sources of financing, which some of them are treated as hedges for accounting purposes. Transactions with derivate instruments are exclusively carried out by the Administration and Finance staff and the Internal Audit Management Department regularly reviews the control of this function. Relationships with credit rating agencies and monitoring of financial restrictions (covenants) are also managed by the Administration and Finance Management Department.

 

The Company’s main risk exposure is related to exchange rates, interest rates, inflation and raw materials price (commodities), taxes, trade accounts receivable and liquidity. Several types of financial instruments are used to manage the risk originated by these exposures.

 

For each of the following points, where applicable, the sensitivity analysis developed are merely for illustration purposes, since in practice the variables used for this excercise rarely change without affecting each other and without affecting other factors that were considered as constant and which also affect the Company’s financial position and results.

 

Exchange rate risk

 

The Company is exposed to exchange rate risks originated by: a) its net exposure to foreign currency assets and liabilities, b) exports revenues, c) the purchase of raw materials and capital investments in foreign currencies, or indexed in such currencies, and d) the net investment of subsidiaries in foreign countries. The Company’s greatest exchange rate exposure is to the variation on the Chilean peso as compared to the US Dollar, Euro, Argentine Peso, Uruguayan Peso, Paraguayan Guarani, Bolivian Peso and Colombian Peso.

 

As of June 30, 2022, the Company maintained foreign currency obligations amounting to ThCh$ 702,447,618 (ThCh$ 92,872,305 as of December 31, 2021) mostly denominated in US Dollars. Foreign currency obligations ThCh$ 570,946,616 as of June 30, 2022 (ThCh$ 12,405,293 as of December 31, 2021) represent a 47% (2% as of December 31, 2021) of total other financial liabilities. The remaining 53% (98% as of December 31, 2021) is mainly denominated in Unidades de Fomento (inflation-indexed Chilean monetary unit – see inflation risk section) and CLP. In addition, the Company has assets in foreign currency in the amount of ThCh$ 650,178,666 (ThCh$ 106,443,576 as of December 31, 2021) that mainly correspond to cash and cash equivalent and export accounts receivable.

 

Regarding the operations of foreign subsidiaries, the net liability exposure in US Dollars and other currencies amounts to ThCh$ 7,731,374 (ThCh$ 17,526,136 as of December 31, 2021).

 

To protect the value of the net foreign currency assets and liabilities position of its Chilean and Argentinean operations, the Company enters into derivate contracts (currency forwards) to mitigate any variation in the Chilean peso and Argentinean peso as compared to other currencies.

 

As of June 30, 2022 the net exposure in Chile, in US Dollars and other currencies after the use of derivate instruments, is passive in the amount of ThCh$ 605,225 (ThCh$ 4,210,943 as of December 31, 2021).

 

As of June 30, 2022 of the Company’s total sales, both in Chile and abroad, 6% (6% the June 30, 2021) corresponds to export sales in foreign currencies, mainly US Dollars, Euros, British pounds and other currencies and approximately 66% (61% the June 30, 2021) of total direct costs correspond to raw materials and products purchased in foreign currencies, or indexed to such currencies. The Company does not hedge the possible variations in the expected cash flows from such transactions.

The Company is also exposed to fluctuations in exchange rates related to the conversion from the US Dollar, Argentine Peso, the Uruguayan Peso, the Paraguayan Guaraní, the Bolivian Peso, the British pound, the Peruvian Sol and the Colombian Peso to Chilean Pesos with respect to assets, liabilities, income and expenses of its subsidiaries in Argentina, United States, Uruguay, Paraguay Bolivia and United Kingdom, associates in Argentina and Perú and a joint venture in Colombia. The Company does not hedge the risks associated to the conversion of its subsidiaries, whose effects are recorded in equity.

 

Exchange rate sensitivity analysis

 

The effect of foreign currency translation differences recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income by Function for the period ended as of June 30, 2022, related to assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currency, was a loss of ThCh$ 9,836,230 (ThCh$ 2,766,263 as of June 30, 2021) . Considering exposure as of June 30, 2022 , and assuming a 10% increase in the exchange rate, and keeping constant all other variables such as interest rates constant, it is estimated that the effect on the Company’s net income would be a loss after taxes of ThCh$ 44,181 (ThCh$ 199,931 as of June 30, 2021 ) associated of the owners of the controller.

 

Considering that approximately 6% of the Company’s sales revenue comes from export sales carried out in Chile (6% as of June 30, 2021), in currencies other than Chilean Peso, and that approximately 66% (61% as of June 30, 2021) of the Company’s direct costs are in or indexed to the US Dollar and assuming that the functional currencies will appreciate/depreciate by 10% in respect to the US Dollar, and keeping all other variables constant, the hypothetical effect on the Company’s income would be a loss/gain after taxes of ThCh$ 19,870,212 (ThCh$ 12,511,287 as of June 30, 2021).

 

The Company can also be affected by changes in the exchange rate of the countries where its foreign subsidiaries operate, since income is converted to Chilean Pesos at the average exchange rate of each month (except for Argentina which uses the end of period exchange rate as the reporting date). The operating income of foreign subsidiaries as of June 30, 2022 was a profits de ThCh$ 12,600,253 (ThCh$ 1,009,836 as of June 30, 2021) . Therefore, a depreciation/appreciation of 10% in the exchange rate of the Argentine Peso, the Uruguayan Peso, the Paraguayan Guarani and the Bolivian peso against the Chilean Peso, would result in a loss/gain before taxes of ThCh$ 1,260,025 (ThCh$ 100,984 as of June 30, 2021) .

 

The net investment in foreign subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures as of June 30, 2022 amounted to ThCh$ 432,073,278, ThCh$ 23,079,130 and ThCh$ 129,699,211 respectively (ThCh$ 355,930,567, ThCh$ 549,401 and ThCh$ 125,296,382 as of December 31, 2021). Assuming a 10% increase or decrease in the Argentine Peso, Uruguayan Peso, Paraguayan Guarani, Bolivian Peso and Colombian Peso against the Chilean Peso, and maintaining all other variables constant, the increase/decrease would hypothetically result in a Net income gain/loss of ThCh$ 58,485,162 (ThCh$ 48,177,635 as of December 31, 2021) recorded as a credit/charge to equity.

 

The Company does not hedge risks associated to currency conversion of the financial statements of its subsidiaries that have a different functional currency, whose effects are recorded in equity.

 

Interest rate risk

 

Interest rate risk mainly originates from the Company’s financing sources.

 

As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had not variable interest debt.

 

To manage interest rate risk, the Company has a policy which seeks to reduce the volatility of its finance cost, and maintain a suitable percentage of its debt in fixed rate instruments. The financial position is mainly set by the use of short-term and long-term, as well as derivate instruments such as cross currency interest rate swaps and cross interest rate swaps.

 

As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, after considering the effect of interest rates and currency swaps, a 100% of the Company’s debt is at fixed interest rates

 

The term and conditions of the Company’s obligations with financial institutions as of June 30, 2022, including exchange rates, interest rate, maturities and effective interest rates, are detailed in Note 21 – Other financial liabilities.

 

Interest rate sensitivity analysis

 

The total financial cost recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income by Function for the period ended as of June 30, 2022, related to short and long-term debt amounted to ThCh$ 29,736,870 (ThCh$ 14,109,872 as of June 30, 2021).

Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

Inflation risk

 

The Company maintains agreements indexed to Unidades de Fomento (UF) with third parties, as well as UF indexed financial debt which means the Company is exposed to fluctuations in the UF, generating an increase in the value of those agreements and liabilities if the UF increases due to inflation. This risk is partially mitigated by the Company’s policy of keeping net sales per unit in UF constant as long as the market conditions allow it, and taking cross currency swaps if the market conditions are favorable to the Company.

 

Inflation in Argentina has shown significant increases since the beginning of 2018. The cumulative inflation rate of three years, calculated using different combinations of consumer price indices, has exceeded 100% for several months, and it’s still increasing. The cumulative three-year inflation calculated using the general price index has already exceeded 100%. Therefore, as prescribed by IAS 29, Argentina was declared a hyperinflationary economy as of July 1, 2018. (See Note 2 – Summary of significant accounting polices (2.4)).

 

Inflation sensitivity analysis

 

Income from indexation units recognized in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income by Function for the period ended as of June 30, 2022, related to UF indexed short and long-term debt and the application of Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina, is a loss of ThCh$ 5,072,346 (profits of ThCh$ 797,500 as of June 30, 2021). Assuming a reasonably possible 3% increase/decrease in the Unidad de Fomento and 10% of inflation in Argentina, and keeping all other variables such as interest rates constant, the aforementioned increase/decrease would hypothetically result in a loss/income of ThCh$ 1,909,721 (ThCh$ 850,301 as of June 30, 2022).

 

Raw material Price risk

 

The main exposure to raw materials price variation is related to barley, malt, and cans used in the production of beer, concentrates, sugar and plastic containers used in the production of soft drinks and bulk wine and grapes for the manufacturing of wine and spirits.

 

Malt and cans

 

In Chile, the Company obtains its malt supply from both local producers and the international market. Long-term supply agreements are entered into with local producers where the barley price is set annually according to market prices, which are used to determine the price of malt according to the agreements.

 

The purchase commitments made expose the Company to raw materials price fluctuation risk. CCU Argentina acquires malt from local producers. These raw materials represent approximately 6% (8% as of June 30, 2021) of the direct cost of the Chile Operating segment.

 

As of June 30, 2022 in the Chile Operation segment, the cost of cans represented approximately 24% of direct costs (21% as of June 30, 2021). In the International Business Operating segment, the cost of cans represented approximately 38% of direct raw materials costs as of June 30, 2022 (36% as of June 30, 2021).

 

Concentrates, sugar and plastic containers

 

The main raw materials used in the production of non-alcoholic beverages are concentrated, which are mainly acquired from licenses, sugar and plastic resin for the manufacturing of plastic bottles and containers. The Company is exposed to price fluctuation risks involving these raw materials, which jointly represent approximately 26% (29% as of June 30, 2021) of the direct cost of the Chile Operating segment.

 

The Company does not engage in hedging raw materials purchases.

 

Grapes and wine

 

The main raw materials used by subsidiary Viña San Pedro Tarapacá S.A. (from now VSPT) for wine production are grapes harvested from its own vineyards and grapes and wine acquired from third parties through long-term and spot contracts. In the last 12 months, approximately 26% (26% as of December 31, 2021) of VSPT’s total wine supply came from its own vineyards. Regarding our export market, and considering our focus on this market, approximately 45% (42% as of December 31, 2021) of our wine supply for export came from our own vineyards.

The remaining 74% (74% as of December 31, 2021) supply was purchased from third parties through long-term and spot contracts. In the last 12 months, the subsidiary VSPT acquired 59% (60% as of December 31, 2021) of the necessary grapes and wine from third parties through spot contracts. Additionally, the long-term transactions were 15% (15% as of December 31, 2021) of the total supply.

 

We should consider that as of June 30, 2022 wine represents 59% (60% as of June 30, 2021) of the total direct cost of the Wine Operating segment, and supplies purchased from third parties represented 35% (36% as of June 30, 2021).

 

Raw material Price sensitivity analysis

 

Total direct costs in the Interim Consolidated Statement of Income by Function for the period ended as of June 30, 2022 amounted to ThCh$ 548,642,923 (ThCh$ 414,677,924 as of June 30, 2021). Assuming a reasonably possible 8% increase/decrease in the direct cost of each Operating segment and keeping all other variables such as exchange rates constant, the aforesaid increase/decrease would hypothetically result into a loss/income before taxes of ThCh$ 29,195,230 (ThCh$ 22,117,279 al June 30, 2021) for the Chile Operating segment, ThCh$ 10,237,619 (ThCh$ 6,842,057 as of June 30, 2021) for the International Business Operating segment and ThCh$ 5,521,173 (ThCh$ 4,696,437 al June 30, 2021) for the Wine operating segment.

 

Credit risk

 

The credit risk which the Company is exposed to originates from: a) trade accounts receivable from retail customers, whole sale distributors and supermarket chains in the domestic market; b) accounts receivable from exports; and c) financial instruments maintained with Banks and financial institutions, such as demand deposits, mutual fund investments, instrument acquired under resale commitments and derivatives.

 

Domestic market

 

The credit risk related to trade accounts receivable from domestic markets is managed by the Credit and Collections Management Department, and is monitored by the Credit Committee of each business unit.

 

The domestic market mainly refers to accounts receivables in Chile and represents 60% of total trade accounts receivable (66% al December 31, 2021). The Company has a wide base of customers that are subject to the policies, procedures and controls established by the Company. Credit limits are established for all customers on the basis of an internal rating and their payment behavior. Outstanding trade accounts receivable are regularly monitored. In addition, the Company purchases credit insurance that covers 90% of individually significant accounts receivable balances, coverage that as of June 30, 2022 is equivalent to 83% (85% as of December 31, 2021) of total accounts receivable.

 

Overdue, but not impaired, trade accounts receivables represent customers that are less than 30 days overdue (18 as of December 31, 2021 ).

 

As of June 30, 2022 , the Company has approximately 907 customers (1,409 as of December 31, 2021) with more than Ch$ 10 million in debt each, which altogether represent approximately 84% (88% as of December 31, 2021) of total trade accounts receivable. There are 188 customers (276 customers as of December 31, 2021) with balances in excess of Ch$ 50 million each, representing approximately 80% (78% as of December 31, 2021) of the total accounts receivable. The 90% (91% as of December 31, 2021) of those accounts receivable are covered by credit insurance.

 

The Company sells its products through retail customers, wholesale distributors and supermarket chains, with a credit worthiness of 99% (100% as of December 31, 2021).

 

As of June 30, 2022 the Company has no significant guarantees from its customers.

 

The Company believes that no additional credit risk provisions other than the individual and collective provisions determined as of June 30, 2022 , that amount to ThCh$ 5,224,205 (ThCh$ 5,820,206 as of December 31, 2021), are needed since a large percentage of these are covered by insurance (See Note 10 – Trade and other receivable).

 

Exports market

 

The credit risk related to accounts receivable from exports is managed by the Head of Credit and Collections and is monitored by the Administration and Finance Management Department. VSPT’s export trade accounts receivable represent 23% of total trade accounts receivable (12% as of December 31, 2021). VSPT has a wide base of customers, in more than eighty countries, which are subject to the policies, procedures and controls established by VSPT. In addition, VSPT acquires credit

insurance to cover 90% of individually significant accounts receivable. This coverage accounts for more than 87% (88% as of December 31, 2021) of total accounts receivable are covered. Pending payments of trade accounts receivable are regularly monitored. Apart from the credit insurance, having diversified sales in different countries decreases the credit risk.

 

As of June 30, 2022 there were 91 customers (71 customers as of December 31, 2021) with more than ThCh$ 65,000 of debt each, which represent 96% (93% as of December 31, 2021) of VSPT´s total export market accounts receivable.

 

Regarding VSPT’s export customers, overdue, but no impaired, trade accounts receivables are customers that are less than 31 days overage overdue (28 days average as of December 31, 2021).

 

The Company believes that no credit risk provisions are necessary other than the individual and collective provisions determined as of June 30, 2022 . See analysis of accounts receivable aging and losses due to impairment of accounts receivables (See Note 10 – Trade and other receivable).

 

Financial investments and derivatives

 

Financial investments correspond to time deposits, which are financial instruments acquired with repurchase agreements at fixed interest rate, maturing in less than three months placed in financial institutions in Chile, so there are not exposed to significant market risk. Derivatives are measured at fair value and traded only in the Chilean market. Since 2018, the amendment to IFRS 9, which requires changes to the valuation of derivative financial instruments considering the counterparty risk (CVA and DVA), is applied. The CVA and DVA effect is calculated using the probability of default of the counterparty or CCU, when applicable, assuming a 40% recovery rate for each derivative instrument. For CCU, the default probability is obtained from the spread of corporate bonds with the same credit risk rating than CCU, while for the counterparty, considers the sum between the Credit Default Swap (CDS) of Chile and the CDS of Citibank in the United States. As of June 30, 2022 the effect is not material.

 

Tax risk

 

Our businesses are subject to different taxes in the countries we operate, particularly with excise taxes on the consumption of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. An increase in the rate of these or any other tax could negatively affect our sales and profitability.

 

Liquidity risk

 

The Company manages liquidity risk at a consolidated level. Cash flows from operating activities are the main source of liquidity. Additionally, the Company has the ability to issue debt and equity instruments in the capitals market based on our needs.

 

In order to manage short-term liquidity, the Company considers projected cash flows for a twelve-month moving period and maintains cash and cash equivalents available to meet its obligations.

 

Based on current operating performance and its liquidity position, the Company estimates that cash flows from operation activities and available cash will be sufficient to finance working capital, capital investments, interest payments, dividend payment and debt payment requirement for the next 12-months period and in the foreseeable future.

Risk from health crises

 

A health crisis, pandemic or the outbreak of disease at a global or regional level, such as the outbreak of COVID-19, which was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020, could have a negative impact on our operations and financial position. The above-mentioned circumstances could impede the normal operation of the Company, interrupt our supply chain, limit our production and distribution capacity, and/or generate a contraction in the demand for our products, as happened during the period of higher restrictions during the second and third quarter of 2020. Despite progress in vaccination efforts, global economic activity remains uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence. Further, new variants of COVID-19 could spread globally and cause an increase in COVID-19 cases across several of the jurisdictions where we operate. In November 2021, a new variant, Omicron, which appears to be the most transmissible variant to date, was detected, and has since caused an increase in COVID-19 cases in multiple countries, including some of those where we conduct our operations, and of which the potential severity is currently being evaluated. Given the ongoing and dynamic nature of the circumstances, it is difficult to predict the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business. An extended period of economic disruption could have a material adverse impact on our business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and overall financial condition.

 

Any prolonged restrictive measures put in place to control an outbreak of a contagious disease or other adverse public health developments, including quarantines, medical screenings, travel restrictions and suspension of certain activities, in any of our markets may have a material and adverse effect on our business operations. The extent of the impact of the pandemic on our business and financial condition will depend largely on future developments, including the duration of the pandemic, the impact on capital and financial markets and the related impact on consumers’ and industries’ confidence, all of which are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted based on the impacts observed to date.

 

The Company has contingency plans to protect the health of the people and to maintain the continuity of our operation, but we cannot assure you that these plans will be sufficient to mitigate a material impact on our results and financial position from such events. Specifically, since March 2020, we have implemented a regional plan with three priorities: (i) the safety of our people and the community we interact with, (ii) operation continuity, and (iii) financial health. This has allowed us to continue supplying our clients and consumers with our products and maintaining a safe work environment. At the close of this report, CCU continues selling, producing and distributing its products normally in all the countries where it operates, where restrictive measures continue to be implemented to face the ongoing spread and new variants of COVID-19.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic may continue to have an adverse effect on our ability to attract and retain key personnel and third-party contractors, which in turn could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shortage of talent for certain business functions, which in turn has affected companies from all industries and across the globe, including ours. In the future, we may continue to encounter competition from other companies in our efforts to hire experienced professionals for both key roles and third-party contractor positions, which could make it difficult for us to identify sufficiently skilled and qualified people or to obtain all the necessary expertise locally or at reasonable rates due to the shortage of appropriately qualified individuals. Failure to obtain services from key personnel and/or third-party contractors with critical skills could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.
