Corona maker Constellation Brands beats quarterly sales estimates

June 28 (Reuters) - Constellation Brands Inc beat analysts' estimates for quarterly revenue on Friday, driven by strong sales of its beers including the Modelo brand, sending its shares up 6% in premarket trading.

Net sales rose 2.5% to $2.10 billion in the first quarter ended May 31. Analysts had expected net sales of $2.07 billion, according to Refinitiv IBES data.

Constellation reported net loss attributable to the company of $245.4 million, or $1.30 per Class A share, compared with a profit of $743.8 million, or $3.77 per share, a year earlier.

The decline was a result of equity losses in marijuana maker Canopy Growth, which is partly owned by Constellation. (Reporting by Nivedita Balu in Bengaluru; Editing by James Emmanuel)
