PART I

ITEM 1 — Business

General

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (“A&P”, “we”, “our”, “us” or “our Company”) is engaged in the retail food business. We operated 436 stores averaging approximately 42,200 square feet per store as of February 28, 2009.

Operating under the trade names A&P®, Super Fresh®, Waldbaum’s™, Super Foodmart, Food Basics®, The Food Emporium®, Best Cellars®, Pathmark® and Pathmark Sav-a-Center®, we sell groceries, meats, fresh produce and other items commonly offered in supermarkets. In addition, many stores have bakery, delicatessen, pharmacy, floral, fresh fish and cheese departments and on-site banking. National, regional and local brands are sold as well as private label merchandise. In support of our retail operations, we sell other private label products in our stores under other brand names of our Company which include without limitation, America’s Choice®, Master Choice®, and Health Pride®.

Building upon a broad base of supermarkets, our Company has historically expanded and diversified within the retail food business through the acquisition of other supermarket chains and the development of several alternative store types. We now operate our stores with merchandise, pricing and identities tailored to appeal to different segments of the market, including buyers seeking gourmet and ethnic foods, a wide variety of premium quality private label goods and health and beauty aids along with the array of traditional grocery products.

Our Internet address is www.aptea.com. We make available free of charge through our Internet website our annual reports and the proxy statement for our annual meeting of stockholders as soon as reasonably practicable after we electronically file such material with, or furnish them to, the Securities and Exchange Commission. All of such materials are located at the “Investors” page. We also provide through our Internet website a hyperlink to the Securities and Exchange Commission website, where the Company’s quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K, and Forms 3, 4 and 5 filed with respect to our equity securities under Section 16(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 may be accessed electronically. The information found on our website shall not be deemed incorporated by reference by any general statement incorporating by reference this report into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shall not otherwise be deemed filed under the Acts.

Modernization of Facilities

During fiscal 2008, we expended approximately $116.0 million for capital projects, which included 1 new liquor store, 2 liquor store remodels, 1 Gourmet store remodel, 16 major remodels, 1 major enlargement, 2 conversions, 7 Pathmark Price-Impact remodels and 3 Starbucks remodels. Our planned capital expenditures for fiscal 2009 are approximately $100 million, which relate primarily to enlarging or remodeling supermarkets, and converting supermarkets to more optimal formats.

Sources of Supply

Our Company currently acquires a majority of our saleable inventory from one supplier, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. Although there are a limited number of distributors that can supply our stores, we believe that other suppliers could provide similar product on comparable terms.

On March 7, 2008, our Company entered into a definitive agreement with C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc. (“C&S”) whereby C&S will provide warehousing, logistics, procurement and purchasing services (the “Services”) in support of the Company’s entire supply chain. This agreement replaces and supersedes three (3) separate wholesale supply agreements under which the parties have been operating. The term of the agreement is ten and one-half (10-1/2) years, which included a six-month “ramp-up” period during which the parties transitioned to the new contractual terms and conditions. The agreement provides that the actual costs of performing the services shall be reimbursed to C&S on an “open-book” or “cost-plus” basis, whereby the parties will negotiate annual budgets that will be reconciled against actual costs on a periodic basis. The parties will also annually negotiate services specifications and performance standards that will govern warehouse operations. The agreement defines the parties’ respective responsibilities for the procurement and purchase of merchandise intended for use or resale at the Company’s stores, as well as the parties’ respective remuneration for warehousing and procurement/purchasing activities. In consideration for the services it provides under the agreement, C&S will be paid an annual fee and will have incentive income opportunities based upon A&P’s cost savings and increases in retail sales volume.

On September 27, 2008, our Company agreed to sell C&S all general merchandise, health beauty and cosmetics, seasonal grocery and other such merchandise warehoused at our distribution center located in Edison, New Jersey. The cost of this inventory was approximately $29.9 million and we have repurchased all of the inventory at the end of our third quarter of fiscal 2008.

Licenses and Trademarks

Our stores require a variety of licenses and permits that are renewed on an annual basis. Payment of a fee is generally the only condition to maintaining such licenses and permits. We maintain registered trademarks for nearly all of our store banner trade names and private label brand names. Trademarks are generally renewable on a 10 year cycle. We consider trademarks an important way to establish and protect our Company brands in a competitive environment.

Employees

As of February 28, 2009, we had approximately 48,000 employees, of which 68% were employed on a part-time basis. Approximately 92% of our employees are covered by union contracts. Our Company considers its present relations with employees to be satisfactory.

Competition

The supermarket business is highly competitive throughout the marketing areas served by our Company and is generally characterized by low profit margins on sales with earnings primarily dependent upon rapid inventory turnover, effective cost controls and the ability to achieve high sales volume. We compete for sales and store locations with a number of national and regional chains, as well as with many independent and cooperative stores and markets.

The stores built over the past several years and those planned for fiscal 2009 and thereafter, generally range in size from 40,000 to 60,000 square feet.

The information required is contained under the captions “Summary of Quarterly Results”, “Five Year Summary of Selected Financial Data”, and “Stockholder Information” in the Fiscal 2008 Annual Report to Stockholders and is herein incorporated by reference.

Although our Company declared and paid a special one-time dividend to our shareholders of record on April 17, 2006 equal to $7.25 per share in April 2006, our Company’s policy is to not pay dividends. As such, we have not made dividend payments in the previous three years and do not intend to pay dividends in the normal course of business in fiscal 2008. The terms of our Revolving Credit Agreement restrict the Company’s ability to pay cash dividends on common shares.

There have been no repurchases of our Company stock in fiscal 2008.

As of May 8, 2009, there were approximately 5,667 stockholders of record of our common stock.

Stock Performance Graph

The following performance graph compares the five-year cumulative total stockholder return (assuming reinvestment of dividends) of the Company’s Common Stock to the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index and the Company’s Peer Group which consists of the Company, Supervalu Inc., Safeway, Inc. and The Kroger Co. The “Peer Group” for the purposes of the Stock Performance Graph is a subset of, and should not be confused for, the peer group list of companies used to benchmark executive compensation as discussed in the Proxy Statement for the Company’s 2008 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (“Proxy Statement”). The performance graph assumes $100 is invested in the Company’s Common Stock, the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index and the Company’s Peer Group on February 27, 2004, and that dividends paid during the period were reinvested to purchase additional shares.

There were no changes in or disagreements with accountants on accounting and financial disclosure during the fiscal year ended February 28, 2009.

ITEM 9A — Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We have established and maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Company’s Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our Company’s management, including our President and Chief Executive Officer, and Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

10


 


We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our Company’s management, including our Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer along with our Company’s Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our Company’s disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(b). Based upon the foregoing, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer along with our Company’s Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, concluded that our Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

The Company’s management does not expect that its disclosure controls and procedures or its internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and breakdowns can occur because of simple errors or mistakes. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some person or by collusion of two or more people. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Accordingly, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system are met and, as set forth above, the Company’s management has concluded, based on their evaluation as of the end of the period, that our disclosure controls and procedures were sufficiently effective to provide reasonable assurance that the objectives of our disclosure control system were met.
