In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

» CEO Comments

Pierre-Olivier Beckers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delhaize Group, commented: "Despite tough market conditions, we are seeing signs that our investments are yielding positive results, with revenues increasing and strong cash generation in the last three months. The repositioning of Food Lion continues to give us confidence for the future. In the third quarter, the repositioned stores, which account for over 60% of the Food Lion network, delivered positive comparable store sales, leading to a flat performance for the Food Lion banner when adjusted for inflation. The recent arrival of Roland Smith, who joined as CEO of Delhaize America, will help to further accelerate the ongoing transformation of our U.S. operations."

"In Belgium, the economic and competitive environment has not improved. While we are not happy with the evolution of our market share, we are encouraged by the second consecutive quarter of positive comparable store sales growth. In addition, in Southeastern Europe & Asia, our initiatives are gaining momentum and delivering solid revenue growth coupled with improved profitability."

"We remain focused on improving our price competitiveness while maintaining our cash flow discipline. This approach should lead to sustainable revenue growth and the realization of shareholder value. We have made considerable progress towards realizing our free cash flow target of EUR500 million for 2012, generating EUR323 million through the first nine months of 2012. However, during the quarter, the Group's underlying operating margin continued to be impacted by our efforts to structurally improve our price positioning across the group. We are confident that we will reach the bottom-end of our full year underlying operating profit guidance range."
