Albertsons Settles Haggen's $1 Billion Lawsuit, but for Only $5.75 Million
Jan 22 16
The settlement for the $1 billion lawsuit that Haggen had lodged against Albertsons was reached on January 21, 2016. The battle between the grocers all started at the end of 2014 when Haggen agreed to acquire 146 stores that Albertsons and Safeway were forced to divest after the two companies merged, taking Haggen's footprint from 18 locations to 164 in Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Nevada and California. Haggen then claimed Albertsons tried to sabotage the company during the transition of those stores and filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Albertsons. Days later Haggen entered bankruptcy protection to work toward restructuring the company. In its $1 billion lawsuit, Haggen alleged Albertsons gave inaccurate price data, causing Haggen to inflate prices, which lead to the demise of its plan to expand throughout the West Coast and caused store closures and hundreds of layoffs. Albertsons at the time called the allegations completely without merit and mere retaliation to a $41 million suit it had already filed against Haggen. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross signed an order Dec. 4 approving a Feb. 5 auction of Haggen's remaining core 33 stores. In a previous auction in November, 47 stores that Haggen had recently acquired were sold off to various sellers as part of the chain's Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Albertson's won bids for 30 stores, including 10 in Washington state and three in Oregon. In some cases, Albertsons won the stores for as little as $1. The $5.5 million cash settlement from Albertsons is subject to approval from the bankruptcy court administering Haggen's case. As part of the settlement deal, Haggen also agrees to recognize Albertsons' unsecured claim of $8.25 million in the bankruptcy.
