    Late Easter blamed as Asda sales growth run comes to end

    Asda has recorded its first quarter of falling sales for the first time in almost two years, insisting it kept its "focus" as it fought in vain for its planned merger with Sainsbury's. The supermarket chain reported a decline of 1.1% in like-for-like sales between January and March - the first slip following seven consecutive quarters of growth. It marked a further disappointment for the chain as it continues to lick its wounds following the competition regulator's decision to block its £13bn deal with Sainsbury's.

    Walmart 'seriously considering' stock market float for Asda

    The US owner of Asda has revealed that it is "seriously considering" a stock market flotation for the British supermarket chain after the collapse of its planned merger with Sainsbury's. Competition authorities blocked the £13bn tie-up last month , prompting speculation over whether Walmart may seek to sell or spin off the business. Walmart International chief executive Judith McKenna disclosed the plans to a meeting of 1,200 managers held on Tuesday but said the path to a share offering would "take years".

    Walmart Confirms It's ‘Seriously’ Mulling an IPO for Asda Unit

    News of a possible float of Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket comes only weeks after U.K. antitrust regulators blocked a planned merger with rival J Sainsbury Plc. “While we are not rushing into anything, I want you to know that we are seriously considering a path to an IPO,” Judith McKenna, the company’s international chief, told employees at an internal event in Leeds, England, on Tuesday, according to a summary of the event provided by Asda. Asda could be valued at six or seven times earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, according to Bruno Monteyne, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, who estimates the company’s Ebitda at about 1.2 billion pounds.

    Walmart mulls stock market listing for UK arm Asda

    Walmart, the world's biggest retailer, said it is considering a stock market listing for its British supermarket arm Asda, whose attempt to combine with rival Sainsbury's was blocked by the UK regulator last month. Britain's competition regulator ruled Sainsbury's 7.3 billion pound takeover of Asda could not proceed, blocking one potential exit route for Walmart from the UK.

Bloomberg News reported that the retailer told employees in Leeds that executives are "seriously considering" an IPO, but that preparations could "take years."

    Asda to rely on Walmart largesse after Sainsbury's dream expires

    Asda will be scrutinised for clues on whether U.S. owner Walmart wants to line it up for sale or to compete longer term in the cut-throat British grocery market when it gives its first trading update since a planned Sainsbury's takeover collapsed. Britain's competition regulator last month ruled Sainsbury's 7.3 billion pound takeover of rival Asda cannot proceed, closing one exit route for Walmart. Asda, which accounts for 6 percent of Walmart's turnover, is due to publish a first-quarter update on Thursday, when the world's biggest retailer posts quarterly earnings.

    How a British grocer thinks it can beat Amazon at its own game

    Britain’s second-biggest supermarket chain plans to compete head-on with Amazon (AMZN) by selling third-party products and services. Sainsbury’s (UK:SBRY)  shrugged off failed plans to merge with Walmart-owned ASDA (WMT) by announcing the new strategy at its full-year results on Wednesday. Chief executive Mike Coupe said the business would look for growth by expanding into wholesale, and using Sainsbury’s online platforms to host products, it doesn’t sell, for third-party partners.

    Oil firms, exporters drag FTSE 100, while Sainsbury's, LSE outshine

    The FTSE 100 ended 0.4 percent lower and the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 inched down 0.1 percent. Shell shed 1.4 percent to a month low and BP gave up 2.1 percent, as crude prices weakened after U.S. oil inventories rose more-than-expected with output reaching a new record of 12.3 million barrels per day. As sterling rose to multi-week highs with lingering hopes of progress in cross-party Brexit talks and ahead of Bank of England interest rate meeting on Thursday, exporter companies bore the brunt as much of their revenue is earned in dollars.

    Sainsbury's was right to go for Asda, says new chairman

    Sainsbury's profits fall 41.6% as charges of £396m hit bottom line

    Sainsbury's has reported a 41.6% fall in pre-tax profits to £239m as it counted the cost of restructuring and its failed merger with Asda. Sainsbury's said that when stripping these out, profits for the year to 9 March were 7.8% higher - driven by what it described as a "solid food performance" as well as £160m of savings as it continues the integration of Argos, the retailer it bought in 2016. Chief executive Mike Coupe brushed off speculation about his future after the failed merger, saying he would not quit and was committed to the business - and had the support of the board and shareholders.

    Sainsbury's boss Mike Coupe vowed to improve stores, cut prices on daily essentials and invest in online to restore sales growth for Britain's second largest supermarket group after the humiliation of his failed takeover of rival Asda. Coupe said Sainsbury's would evolve, rather than dramatically change, a strategy that is designed to meet changing customer habits - more frequent shopping trips, the demand for more convenience and more shopping online. Sainsbury's $9.5 billion (£7.2 billion) bid to buy the Walmart-owned Asda and surpass market leader Tesco was blocked by Britain's competition regulator last week, in a public rebuke to Coupe who had orchestrated the deal.

    Sainsbury's has reported a 41.6% fall in pre-tax profits to £239m as it counted the cost of restructuring and its failed merger with Asda. The cost of the abortive Asda merger was one of a series of one-off charges totalling £396m that weighed on the supermarket's bottom line and also included provision for pension changes and a shake-up of stores. Sainsbury's said that when stripping these out, profits for the year to 9 March were 7.8% higher - driven by what it described as a "solid food performance" as well as £160m of savings as it continues the integration of Argos, the retailer it bought in 2016.
