Business Strategy and Outlook

| Ioannis Pontikis |

While Sainsbury’s has historically distinguished itself from its peers with a higher-quality (premium-priced) food offering, it has been underperforming peers due to a lack of focus and responsiveness to an increasingly value-oriented U.K. consumer base.

Company Profile SBRY

Business Description

Founded in 1869, Sainsbury's is the second-largest U.K. grocery chain with over 15% market share. It operates around 600 supermarkets and 800 convenience stores, all in the U.K. The company has diversified away from core food by selling clothing, telecom equipment, and other nonfood items. In September 2016, it took a step further into nonfood retailing with the purchase of Home Retail Group, operating the Habitat and Argos chains (general merchandise and electronics stores), for GBP 1.10 billion. It has been selling products online since 1997.

SBRY’s stock style is Mid Value.
Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
