Loblaw Companies Limited Recalls Farmer's Market Russet Potatoes and Strang's Wholesale Jumbo Potatoes in Atlantic Canada

Loblaw Companies Limited is recalling select Farmer's Market Russet Potatoes and Strang's Wholesale Jumbo Potatoes in Atlantic Canada due to a risk that they may contain embedded metal objects.

There have been no illness or injuries reported and all units have been removed from store shelves across the region. Customers can return the products to the place of purchase and the customer service desk will provide a full refund.

UFCW Canada Members Delivers Resounding Strike Mandate in Negotiations with Loblaw Companies Ltd

At polls held from May 11 to 14 across Ontario, members from UFCW Canada Local 1000A and Locals 175 & 633 working at Loblaw Companies Ltd. voted 97% in favour of strike action if a fair contract is not reached. The strike votes took place after the union broke off talks on May 5 when it became clear that the roadblocks to achieving a fair contract still remained. Combined, the local unions represent 28,000 grocery workers employed at Loblaws Great Food and Superstore, Zehrs, Zehrs Great Food and Superstore, and Fortinos. The local unions are calling for fair wage increases, reliable work schedules, benefit improvements and limits on third party providers.

Loblaw Companies Limited Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for 2015

Loblaw Companies Limited announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015. For the quarter, revenue was CAD 10,048 million against CAD 7,292 million of prior year period. Operating income was CAD 414 million against CAD 276 million of prior year period. Earnings before income taxes were CAD 222 million against CAD 161 million of prior year period. Net earnings were CAD 146 million or CAD 0.35 per diluted share against CAD 120 million or CAD 0.42 per diluted share of prior year period. Cash flows from operating activities were CAD 517 million against cash flows used in activities of CAD 46 million of prior year period. Fixed assets purchases were CAD 204 million against CAD 104 million of prior year period. Intangible asset additions were CAD 27 million against CAD 13 million of prior year period. EBITDA was CAD 784 million against CAD 471 million of prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was CAD 789 million against CAD 482 million of prior year period. Adjusted operating income was CAD 543 million against CAD 287 million of prior year period. Adjusted net earnings were CAD 301 million or CAD 0.73 per basic share against CAD 153 million or CAD 0.54 per basic share of prior year period. The increase in adjusted basic net earnings per common share was primarily due to the increase in adjusted net earnings described above, partially offset by the dilutive effect of the 119.5 million common shares issued as partial consideration for the acquisition of Shoppers Drug Mart, as well as 10.5 million common shares issued to George Weston Limited in relation to the acquisition of Shoppers Drug Mart. In 2015 the company expects to: Maintain positive same-store sales and stable gross margin (excluding synergies) in the Retail segment; Grow adjusted operating income in its food retail business, excluding synergies; Grow consolidated adjusted net earnings (including synergies) relative to 2014; and invest approximately CAD 1,200 million in capital expenditure programs.
