Item 8.01 Other Events.

On March 24, 2014, Safeway Inc. (“Safeway”) issued a press release announcing that the Board of Directors of Safeway had declared a special stock dividend to Safeway’s stockholders of the 37,838,709 shares of Class B common stock of Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. (“Blackhawk”) owned by Safeway, representing approximately 94.2% of the total outstanding shares of Blackhawk’s Class B common stock and approximately 72.0% of the total number of shares of Blackhawk common stock of all classes outstanding. The date of distribution by Safeway of the special stock dividend (the “Distribution Date”) is contemplated to be April 14, 2014.

The distribution will take place in the form of a pro rata dividend of Blackhawk Class B common stock to each Safeway stockholder of record as of the close of business on April 3, 2014 (the “Record Date”). As of March 21, 2014, Safeway had approximately 230.3 million shares outstanding. Accordingly, it is anticipated that Safeway stockholders will receive approximately 0.164308 of a share of Blackhawk Class B common stock for every share of Safeway common stock held as of the Record Date, less any shares of Blackhawk Class B common stock withheld in respect of applicable withholding taxes. The final distribution ratio for the stock dividend will be calculated by dividing the number of shares of Blackhawk Class B common stock to be distributed by the number of shares of Safeway common stock outstanding on the Record Date. No fractional shares of Blackhawk stock will be distributed. Instead, Safeway stockholders will receive cash in lieu of any fraction of a share of Blackhawk stock that they otherwise would have received.

Attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and incorporated herein by this reference, is a copy of Safeway’s press release dated March 24, 2014, announcing the declaration of the special stock dividend to effectuate the distribution of Blackhawk Class B common stock to Safeway’s stockholders.
