Who benefits from our revenues?
Our reported financial results make clear how much profit Molson Coors generated and the resulting earning per share of stock. This is the format that is required by the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the US (US GAAP). Less clear from standard financial reporting are the many other economic impacts inherent in the distribution of our revenues.
The pie chart below shows how 2011 revenues were allocated. In 2011, Molson Coors Brewing Company received US$5.2 billion in revenue*, well over 99% from beer sales in Canada, Europe and in Asia. Governments, through excise and other taxes, took the biggest slice of the revenue, 32% or US$1.6 billion. Our employees received 12% or US$635 million in compensation and benefits. Another 25% or US$1.3 billion went to agriculture, other brewing materials, cans, bottles and other packaging. An increased proportion, 5%, was returned to shareholders in the form of dividends resulting in no retained earnings.
Our 2011 revenue including our pro rata share of MillerCoors is US$8.9 billion.
This analysis also does not include the significant jobs and value created by wholesalers and retailers who sell our products to consumers.

* 2011 revenues represent full year revenues from Molson Coors Brewing Company operations around the world, with the exception of the US and Puerto Rico. In July 2008, Molson Coors and SAB Miller plc combined their US and Puerto Rico operations to form MillerCoors LLC. For financial reporting under US accounting standards, MillerCoors is accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Therefore, since July 2008, MillerCoors revenues and expenses are not reported in the financial results of Molson Coors. Molson Coors does receive and report 42% of the net income of MillerCoors LLC.
