Albertsons Companies Issues Statement Regarding the Denial of a Request for Preliminary Injunction by the Attorney General of th

BOISE, Idaho , December 10 /Businesswire/ - Albertsons Companies (NYSE: ACI) (“Albertsons Cos.” or “the Company”) today announced that the Washington State Court has denied the request for a preliminary injunction by the Attorney General of the State of Washington against the previously announced $6.85 per common share Special Dividend (the “Special Dividend”) originally scheduled to be paid on November 7, 2022, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on October 24, 2022. The Washington State Court has extended the existing temporary restraining order (“TRO”) until 4:30 p.m. PST on December 19, 2022, to give the Attorney General of the State of Washington an opportunity to appeal today’s ruling.

Albertsons Cos. awaits a ruling on the request for a preliminary injunction filed December 1, 2022, by the California, Illinois and District of Columbia Attorneys General against the payment of the Special Dividend. On November 8, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied their request for a temporary restraining order against the payment of the Special Dividend.

Albertsons Cos. continues to believe that the claim brought by the Attorney General of the State of Washington, and the similar lawsuit brought by the Attorneys General of California, Illinois, and the District of Columbia, is meritless and provides no legal basis for preventing the payment of a dividend that has been duly and unanimously approved by Albertsons Cos.’ fully informed Board of Directors.

Albertsons Cos.’ proposed merger with The Kroger Co. is continuing through required regulatory review, including seeking clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.
