Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • In fiscal 2020, we moved closer to completing the integration of Supervalu and positioned ourselves for future growth. Our operating performance in fiscal 2020 benefited from the shift in food-at-home consumption driven by the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic, during which we fulfilled our role as a critical link in the North American food supply chain while prioritizing the safety and well-being of our associates. By the end of fiscal 2020, we had completed the consolidation of five distribution centers in the Pacific Northwest into two distribution centers. We expect this consolidation to provide significant future operating benefits. We exceeded our original longer term cost synergy expectations, which called for a minimum of $185 million in savings related to the Supervalu acquisition, and believe we have further cost saving opportunities that we plan to pursue in fiscal 2021 and beyond. We remain optimistic in our ability to grow through cross selling our diverse product and services offerings, innovating to grow our Private Brands, and capitalizing on the growing trends in eCommerce. After investing in the growth of our business, we plan to use free cash flow to primarily reduce debt and improve our financial leverage.
