Item 8.01. Other Events.
On June 20, 2016, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Walmart” or the “Company”), announced the formation of a strategic alliance with JD.com, Inc. (“JD”), China’s largest e-Commerce company by revenue, to serve online consumers in China. In connection with this transaction, Walmart has sold to JD certain assets relating to the Yihaodian marketplace business, including the Yihaodian brand, website and app, and has received newly issued Class A ordinary shares of JD representing approximately 5 percent of JD’s outstanding ordinary shares on a fully diluted basis (the “Transaction”).
As part of the Transaction, Walmart and JD have entered into a series of business cooperation agreements, including agreements providing for: (i) Walmart China to be a preferred retailer in JD’s “O2O”, or online-to-offline, platform; and (ii) Sam’s Club China to become a flagship store on JD’s marketplace with preferred placement on the JD website and app.
Walmart may continue to operate its existing digital platforms in China, including the Walmart China and Sam’s Club websites and apps, and sell products in China through walmart.com, and there are no restrictions on its physical store or club operations in China. Under the terms of the alliance, Walmart will not engage in other e-Commerce direct sale, e-Commerce marketplace or “O2O” platforms in China.
The Transaction was consummated effective as of June 20, 2016.
For the second quarter of fiscal 2017, the financial impact from the Transaction is a discrete item which is estimated to increase diluted earnings per share from continuing operations by approximately $0.16 to $0.19.
Walmart considers the statement above as to the estimated financial impact from the Transaction on second quarter earnings for fiscal 2017 to be a “forward-looking statement” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended (the “Act”), that is intended to enjoy the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided by the Act. This forward-looking statement is subject to certain risks, uncertainties and other factors.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Exhibit 99.1 - A copy of the joint Press Release of Walmart and JD reporting the Transaction described in Item 8.01 of this Form 8-K is included herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
