Sainsbury's Legal Case in Egypt to Drag on After Hearing Adjourned; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2015

A legal dispute in Egypt involving Sainsbury and its chief executive Mike Coupe is set to drag on after a court hearing was adjourned on May 3, 2015. Coupe is contesting a two-year jail sentence handed down in absentia by an Egyptian court in September, relating to a business dispute Sainsbury had 14 years ago. Sainsbury has described the sentence for embezzlement as groundless. Coupe attended a court hearing in the Egyptian city of Giza on April 26, 2015 to try to overturn the conviction. That hearing was adjourned, with another set for May 3, 2015. If the conviction is confirmed, it would put Coupe at risk of arrest in Egypt or any country with an extradition treaty with it. The issue is an unwelcome distraction for Coupe as Sainsbury grapples with falling sales, food price deflation and a price war. The company announced pretax profit forecast to fall 17% to £659 million for the full year 2015.
