SUPERVALU To Spin-Off Save-A-Lot Holdings, Inc.

Chief Financial Offiecr of SUPERVALU Inc. (NYSE:SVU), Bruce Besanko said in context of spin-off of Save-A-Lot Holdings, Inc., "There's no guarantee it's going to happen. But you can certainly bet that we spent money last quarter, and we're going to spend money in the second quarter here to continue to march down the path, and we wouldn't obviously spend that kind of money unless we were certainly serious about something like this. So that’s very exciting for Save-A-Lot, very exciting for Supervalu, to be able to unleash the power of that brand as a standalone entity.” Another possibility was an outright sale of Save-A-Lot. “We've had some inbound calls now that have expressed some interest and so that's a possibility — there could be a combination hybrid of [a sale and IPO],” Bruce Besanko said.

SUPERVALU Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended June 20, 2015; Re-Affirms Capital Spending Guidance for the Full Year 2015

SUPERVALU Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended June 20, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $5,407 million compared to $5,264 million a year ago. Operating earnings were $158 million compared to $135 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $101 million compared to $72 million a year ago. Net earnings from continuing operations were $63 million compared to $48 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to the company were $61 million compared to $43 million a year ago. Basic and diluted net earnings per share were $0.23 compared to $0.17 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $112 million compared to $57 million a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was $49 million compared to $37 million a year ago. Total adjusted EBITDA was $246 million compared to $226 million a year ago. Adjusted earnings per share was $0.23. Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $3 million, while operating earnings increased by $3 million, all compared to last year's first quarter. The biggest driver of these year-over-year declines was the compression of pharmacy gross margins resulting from generic drug cost inflation, coupled with static or, in some cases, lower managed-care reimbursement rates back to company. For the full year 2015, outlook for capital spending is unchanged and remains in the range of $300 million to $320 million.

SUPERVALU Considering Spinning-Off Save-A-Lot

(NYSE:SVU) is exploring a spinoff of Save-A-Lot Holdings, Inc. into a publicly traded company as the retailer looks to insulate the fast-growing unit from its slower-growing grocery wholesale and food retail businesses.

No specific time line has been decided for the possible transaction to take place. Barclays Bank PLC and Greenhill & Co., Inc. (NYSE:GHL) are acting as financial advisors while Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, and katz is acting as legal advisor.
