The longer England continues in the World Cup the better for the supermarkets Hot weather 'should' be good for them too although I can just envisage a new excuse like for like sales were down because "it was too hot to go shopping" ... LOL

Actually the pay deal is not quite as good as it appears there is no rise next year and paid breaks, bonus and most premium rates have been lost as a consequence.In all honesty I think all Coupe is focused on now is the merger.

didn't see any stuff from trading statement 4th July posted here during the week by our excellent contributors, so doing my bit for once, with this extract: Sainsbury plc First Quarter Trading Statement for the 16 weeks to 30 June 2018 -- Total retail sales up 0.8 per cent (excl. fuel) with like-for-like sales up 0.2 per cent (excl. fuel) -- Grocery sales grew 0.5 per cent with Groceries Online and Convenience up 7.3 per cent and 3.6 per cent respectively -- General Merchandise sales grew by 1.7% and Clothing sales grew by 0.8%, both outperforming the market Mike Coupe, Group Chief Executive of J Sainsbury plc, said: "I am pleased with our progress in the quarter. The headline numbers reflect the level of price reductions we have made in key areas like fresh meat, fruit and vegetables since March. Our price position has improved and customers have responded well, resulting in a continuation of the improved volume trend we saw in the second half of last financial year. "We are transforming our business to meet the changing needs of our customers. We have made fundamental changes to the way we run Sainsbury's stores. We have completed our store management restructure, which will ensure that our shops are run efficiently and in a way that puts customer service at the heart. We have also confirmed our plans to increase our colleague hourly rate of pay to an industry-leading GBP9.20 an hour from September and will introduce one simple, fair and consistent contract for all Sainsbury's store colleagues. Both of these significant changes means we are well set up for the future. We were delighted to win The Grocer Gold Service and Availability awards for the sixth consecutive year, recognising the excellent job our colleagues do for customers in stores every day. "General Merchandise and Clothing, including Argos, continue to outperform a very challenging market and we are well placed to further grow market share. Argos stores in Sainsbury's supermarkets continue to grow, Fast Track sales were strong and we have now launched Tu clothing on the Argos website, a key strategic milestone. "The market remains competitive. However, we have the right strategy in place and our proposal to combine Sainsbury's and Asda will create a dynamic new player in UK retail, with the scale to give customers more of what they want today and create a more resilient and adaptable business for the future. We have successfully agreed a financing package of GBP3.5bn in relation to the proposed combination. The financing has been raised on attractive terms, reflecting the confidence of the lending banks in the outlook for the proposed combined business."

Sainsbury’s has agreed £3.5 billion of syndicated loans to back its proposed £7.3bn acquisition of Walmart’s Asda. The acquisition financing comprises a £2 billion two-year term loan and a £1.5 billion three-year term loan. The company will also increase its existing revolving credit facilities to £2 billion from £1.45 billion to provide the combined companies with financial flexibility. The increased revolving credits comprise a £445 million three-year facility, a £590m four-year facility, a £665m five-year facility, and a £300 million five-year facility. Under the terms of the merger, US-based Walmart will sell Asda to Sainsbury’s in return for a 42 percent stake in the combined company and £2.875 billion in cash, valuing Asda at around £7.3 billion. The new company is expected to have an investment grade credit profile on completion, which is anticipated in the second half of 2019, and to be highly cash generative, which will allow it to deleverage quickly.

Laith Khalaf, senior analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: "'We know that consumers were in fine fettle in May, as the Royal Wedding and some good weather lifted spirits, and that's helped Sainsbury's to achieve a positive period of trading." "The June sunshine and the start of the World Cup no doubt also provided a boost to Sainsbury's coffers, as shoppers came home with TVs and barbecues. "While the top line is just about growing, Sainsbury's efforts to lower prices mean that may not entirely feed through into profits. Emma-Lou Montgomery, associate director at Fidelity Personal Investing, said: "Going forward, Sainsbury's bosses are clearly pinning their hopes on the newly-created supermarket behemoth, that a merger with Asda would create, bulldozing its way through this relentlessly competitive sector." Richard Hunter, head of markets at interactive investor said 'Sainsbury is in relatively good shape at the moment, with an upbeat outlook promising more positive times to come. There is, however, no room for complacency.' 'The unrelenting pressure in the sector from the discount supermarkets, let alone the recently announced Tesco tie-up with Carrefour, will continue to turn the screw.'

Yup defo the big brands. Retailers fighting back lol. Won't hurt the likes of Unilever to take a small cut in their margins since they're raking in billions.

The big suppliers have also been getting together for example Kraft merging with Heinz. Retailers Vs the Brands is an on going battle of who has the most muscle and over the last few years it has been the Brands who have had the most muscle.

They could block both due to undue pressure on suppliers, particularly farmers.

I am surprised that the Sainsbury's share price didn't significantly go up on the news of the tie up between Tesco and Carrefour as it makes it more likely that the CMA will let the Saisnbury's/Asda merger go through with less restrictions.

European groups Auchan Retail, Casino, Metro and Schiever agreed their own purchasing partnership last week. Some analysts speculated that the Carrefour-Tesco alliance could even be the precursor to a merger between the two.

I think this will help get the Sainsbury's/Asda merger through the CMA. Tesco says it is planning a "strategic alliance" with French retail giant Carrefour, as the two try to use their joint buying power to cut costs and offer lower prices to customers. The companies said the alliance would improve the quality and choice of goods available, and create "significant opportunities" for suppliers. They said they were hoping to confirm a deal in the next two months. Announcing the planned tie-up with Tesco, Carrefour Group chief executive Alexandre Bompard said the agreement was, "a great opportunity to develop our two brands at the service of our customers". "This international alliance further strengthens Carrefour allowing it to reach a key milestone in the implementation of its strategy."
