Could Constellation Brands and Monster merge? Two companies reportedly in talks about merger agreement

Could Constellation Brands merge with Monster Beverage?

It’s possible. The two massive drink manufacturers are apparently in talks, according to recent reporting by Bloomberg.

Constellation is valued at $44 billion. Monster Beverage, which makes Monster Energy Drinks is valued at $48 billion.


At the moment, Coca-Cola Co. is a major shareholder in Monster Beverage. In the end, this could be a major sticking point for the two companies as they look at merger options.

“I see such a transaction, if effected, as jeopardizing Monster’s exclusive distribution agreement with Coca-Cola, which could derail its international growth ambitions,” Kenneth Shea, a senior analyst for beverage an tobacco companies at Bloomberg Intelligence told Bloomberg. “I see little synergy between these two companies, as regulators would not welcome drinks that combine caffeine and alcohol. The products produced would have to leverage their respective brands but be mindful of the limitations with product formulations.”

Representatives for both companies and Coca-Cola declined to comment.
