Boise, ID - January 14, 2019
Albertsons Companies, Inc. (the "Company") today reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, which ended December 1, 2018.
Third Quarter of Fiscal 2018 Highlights and Update on Fiscal 2018 Outlook

Adjusted EBITDA increased over 50%
eCommerce sales growth of 73%

"We continue to gain traction in our efforts to deliver a seamless shopping experience for our customers in both the four-wall and no-wall environment," said Jim Donald, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The third quarter marked our strongest identical sales increase since the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Identical sales grew for the fourth consecutive quarter, and Adjusted EBITDA grew over 50% compared to the same quarter last year, as the business has rebounded from fiscal 2017. We achieved a record high sales penetration rate on our Own Brands products as we continue to delight our customers with our portfolio of award winning brands."
 
"We also successfully refinanced our term loan and asset-based loan facilities during the quarter as we secure long-term financing and delever our balance sheet," added Donald.

Third Quarter of Fiscal 2018 Results
Sales and other revenue increased 1.8% to $13.8 billion during the 12 weeks ended December 1, 2018 ("third quarter of fiscal 2018") compared to $13.6 billion during the 12 weeks ended December 2, 2017 ("third quarter of fiscal 2017"). The increase was driven by the Company's 1.9% increase in identical sales and higher fuel sales of $91.7 million, partially offset by a reduction in sales related to the stores closed in the first three quarters of fiscal 2018.
Gross profit margin increased to 27.8% during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 26.7% during the third quarter of fiscal 2017.

Selling and administrative expenses decreased to 26.6% of sales during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 27.4% of sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding the impact of fuel, selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales decreased 70 basis points during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2017. The decrease in selling and administrative expenses was primarily attributable to lower depreciation and amortization expense, a reduction in acquisition and integration costs as the store conversions were completed during the third quarter of fiscal 2018, and the realization of the Company's cost reduction initiatives.
Interest expense was $213.0 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $193.9 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2017. The increase in interest expense is attributable to the Company's refinancing transaction in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and the related write-off of deferred financing costs and original issue discount.
