This excerpt taken from the SWY 8-K filed Oct 18, 2005.

Guidance

 

Safeway expects 2005 identical store sales (excluding fuel and excluding Vons for the first quarter of 2005) to be at the top end of the previously provided range of 2.5% to 2.8%. The company is comfortable with current analyst consensus earnings estimates of $1.44 per diluted share for 2005 (excluding any voluntary employee buyouts and the closure of Texas stores) as posted by Thomson First Call.

 

Free cash flow is expected to be in the $500 million to $600 million range (excluding any voluntary employee buyouts and the closure of Texas stores) for the year.

 

This excerpt taken from the SWY 8-K filed Jul 26, 2005.

Guidance

 

Safeway is raising guidance for 2005 identical store sales (excluding fuel) to a range of 2.5% to 2.8% from the previously provided range of 1.2% to 1.5%. The company is comfortable with current analyst consensus earnings estimates of $1.45 per diluted share for 2005 (excluding any voluntary employee buyouts) as posted by Thomson First Call.

 

As a result of the $100 million increase in forecasted capital spending in the second half of 2005, the company’s expected free cash flow is being narrowed to a range of $500 million to $600 million for the year.

 

This excerpt taken from the SWY 8-K filed May 3, 2005.

Guidance

 

Safeway confirms its 2005 guidance for identical store sales (excluding fuel and excluding the impact of the strike in the first quarter) of 1.2% to 1.5%, and diluted earnings per share of $1.41 to $1.51.

 

First quarter earnings exceeded First Call consensus estimates by $0.04 per diluted share. Safeway believes about half that outperformance was due to Easter sales and operating profits that were recorded in the first quarter, but were reflected in second quarter analyst consensus estimates. In addition, as a result of the timing of expected investments in marketing and branding, the company expects diluted earnings per share in the second quarter to be similar to the first quarter. The company expects diluted earnings per share to improve in the third quarter, as returns are realized from implementation of the company’s strategic plan, which includes Lifestyle store investments.

 

Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $500 million to $700 million in 2005. Free cash flow in the first quarter of 2005 was in line with Safeway’s expectations.

 

This excerpt taken from the SWY 8-K filed Feb 24, 2005.

Guidance

 

Safeway confirms 2005 guidance of $1.41 to $1.51 per diluted share which includes an estimated stock option expense of $0.09 per diluted share. In addition, the company expects to generate free cash flow of $500 million to $700 million in 2005 compared to $1,156.1 million in 2004. Free cash flow will be less in 2005 compared to 2004 because of reduced working capital improvements and increased capital expenditures.
