Albertsons' Digital and Loyalty Business Is Growing, but Company Still Lacks an Economic Moat

Dan Wasiolek Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Dan Wasiolek |

We remain convinced that the long-term environment for the grocery sector will feature intense price competition, high customer expectations, and more costly fulfillment (particularly delivery). With wide-moat companies like Walmart and Amazon battling for national supremacy, traditional grocery leader Kroger building a highly automated delivery fulfillment network with Ocado, and the hard discounters boosting their presence, we believe Albertsons will be hard-pressed to defend its returns on invested capital (14% on average in fiscal 2020-22, but only 7% on average in fiscal 2018-19; includes goodwill). Additionally, we are skeptical that Kroger’s proposed acquisition of Albertsons will achieve regulatory approval.

Key Statistics ACI

Company Profile ACI

Business Description

Albertsons is the second-largest conventional grocer in America, operating 2,271 stores under 24 banners in 34 states (as of the end of fiscal 2022). Around 75% of stores have pharmacies, while nearly 20% also sell fuel. Albertsons has a significant private-label operation, accounting for around 20% of sales (excluding fuel). While its own brand assortment is mainly manufactured by third parties, Albertsons operates 19 food production plants (as of the end of fiscal 2022). Albertsons is a top two grocer in two thirds of its major markets (as of early 2022, according to company data), and virtually all of its sales come from the United States. Narrow-moat Kroger has offered to acquire Albertsons in a $25 billion deal; if the transaction is approved by regulators, it should close in 2024.

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.
