    Morrisons quells fears over Sainsbury's-Asda with robust trading

    Morrisons (MRW.L), Britain's No. 4 supermarket chain, beat forecasts for quarterly sales, helping to subdue fears that it could be the major loser from Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) proposed 7.3 billion pound ($10 billion) takeover of Walmart's (WMT.N) Asda. Sainsbury's, the UK industry's No. 2, merging with Asda, the No. 3, would be a major challenge for Morrisons. While Morrisons would become No. 3 it would be about a third of the size of Sainsbury's-Asda and Tesco (TSCO.L), the current market leader.

    Battle lines drawn in £7.3 billion Sainsbury's-Asda deal

    If Sainsbury's is to succeed in its $10 billion (7.3 billion pound) bid for Walmart's Asda and become Britain's largest supermarket it will have to persuade regulators that changes in the way people shop mean previous anti-trust rulings no longer apply. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has said it is likely to review the biggest deal in the sector for 15 years. Competition lawyers say Sainsbury's and Asda face an uphill battle to get the bid passed without having to sell off so many stores that it removes the rationale for the deal.

    Sainsbury's to top Britain's Tesco with £7.3 billion swoop on Walmart's Asda

    Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) is to buy Walmart's (WMT.N) Asda for around 7.3 billion pounds in a bold attempt to overtake long-time leader Tesco (TSCO.L) as Britain's biggest supermarket group by market share. Sainsbury's and Asda aim to generate savings and buying power to better compete with fast-growing discounters, Aldi and Lidl, a bigger Tesco after its recent 4 billion pounds purchase of wholesaler Booker, and the rise of online shopping, particularly the march of Amazon (AMZN.O). Monday's cash and share deal also provides a potential exit for Walmart, as Asda, which it bought in 1999 for 6.7 billion pounds, has struggled over the last five years.

    Sainsbury's move for Asda sees some hedge funds caught out

    A popular hedge fund bet on a fall in Sainsbury's shares came unstuck on Monday after the supermarket group announced plans to merge with Walmart-owned rival Asda. The deal, which would see the combined group leapfrog Tesco (Swiss: TSCO.SW - news) to become Britain's biggest food retailer, sent shares in Sainsbury's up 17 percent by 1200 GMT and on course for their biggest one-day gain since 1983, Thomson Reuters (Dusseldorf: TOC.DU - news) data showed. Before the news broke over the weekend, data from industry tracker FIS' Astec Analytics showed more than 160 million Sainsbury's shares were out on loan, near the top of a 52-week range, as part of a "short" trade betting the price will fall.
