This made Sona a natural target for any of these tier 1 beweries seeking to increase its market share. This purchase is so far the largest brewery deal in the Nigerian market and it increase Heineken's capacity by 3.7Million Hectolitres. As a firm, the most creative part of this transaction was the pre-sale reorganization of Sona's breweries assests into a holding company, prior to its purchase by Heineken.
