Growth in consolidated sales in the first quarter of 35.4 percent and in adjusted net earnings of 46.8 percent largely reflects the impact of the acquisition of Canada Safeway combined with Sobeys sales and merchandising initiatives, including new and innovative commercial programs as part of the Company s strategy to help Canadians Eat Better, Feel Better, and Do Better. Going forward we remain focused on completing the successful integration of the Canada Safeway business and on the ongoing promotion of our Better Food for All culture, while continuing to secure operational efficiencies and cost reductions across the organization. 115 King Street Stellarton, NS B0K 1S0 1

2 Dividend Declaration The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.27 per share on both the Non-Voting Class A shares and the Class B common shares that will be payable on October 31, 2014 to shareholders of record on October 15, These dividends are eligible dividends as defined for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and applicable provincial legislation and, therefore, qualify for the favourable tax treatment applicable to such dividends. Discontinued Operations On November 1, 2013, the Company announced that Empire Theatres completed the sale of 46 theatres with 397 screens in separate transactions with Cineplex Inc. and Landmark Cinemas as previously announced on June 27, As a result of the sale, financial results related to Empire Theatres, as previously reported in the investments and other operations segment, have been included in discontinued operations in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements of earnings for the 13 weeks ended August 3, CONSOLIDATED OPERATING RESULTS ($ in millions, except per share amounts) August 2, 2014 August 3, 2013 (1) ($) Change Sales $ 6,222.7 $ 4,595.3 $ 1,627.4 EBITDA (2) Adjusted EBITDA (2) Operating income (2) Adjusted operating income (2) Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations (2)(3) Net earnings from continuing operations (3) Net earnings (loss) from discontinued operations - (17.6) 17.6 Net earnings (3) Adjusted EPS from continuing operations (fully diluted) (2)(3) $ 1.43 $ 1.32 $ 0.11 EPS from continuing operations (fully diluted) (2)(3) $ 1.33 $ 1.21 $ 0.12 (1) Amounts have been reclassified to correspond to the current presentation on the condensed consolidated statement of earnings. (2) See Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of this news release. (3) Net of non-controlling interest. Sales Consolidated sales for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 were $6,222.7 million compared to $4,595.3 million in the first quarter last year, an increase of $1,627.4 million or 35.4 percent. The growth in sales is primarily the result of sales from Safeway operations in the food retailing segment. During the first quarter, Sobeys same-store sales increased 1.3 percent from the same period last year. 115 King Street Stellarton, NS B0K 1S0 2

3 EBITDA Consolidated adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter was $344.7 million compared to $232.3 million in the first quarter last year, a $112.4 million or 48.4 percent increase. Before adjusting EBITDA for items which are considered not indicative of underlying business operating performance, as presented in the following table, first quarter EBITDA amounted to $342.7 million compared to $222.2 million in the first quarter last year, an increase of $120.5 million or 54.2 percent. This increase primarily relates to the food retailing segment, and the impact of the Safeway operations and synergies realized since the acquisition. The table below provides a reconciliation of EBITDA to adjusted EBITDA for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 compared to the 13 weeks ended August 3, ($ in millions) August 2, 2014 August 3, 2013 EBITDA (1)(2) (consolidated) $ $ Adjustments: Transaction costs associated with the Canada Safeway acquisition Plant closure Adjusted EBITDA (1) $ $ (1) See Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of this news release. (2) EBITDA generated from Empire Theatres has been recorded in discontinued operations. Operating Income Consolidated adjusted operating income in the first quarter was $230.2 million, an increase of $86.2 million or 59.9 percent from the $144.0 million recorded in the first quarter last year. Before adjusting for items which are considered not indicative of underlying business operating performance first quarter consolidated operating income amounted to $219.6 million compared to $133.9 million in the first quarter last year, an increase of $85.7 million or 64.0 percent. Operating income was impacted primarily by Safeway operations. This was offset by the factors affecting EBITDA, combined with depreciation and amortization expenses of $22.8 million and $8.1 million, respectively, related to the Canada Safeway acquisition, when compared to the same period last year. Finance Costs Finance costs, net of finance income, for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 were $43.8 million, an increase of $29.0 million from the $14.8 million recorded in the same period last year. The increase is primarily the result of higher interest expense due to increased debt levels as a result of financing for the Canada Safeway acquisition. Income Taxes The Company s effective income tax rate for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 was 25.3 percent compared to 24.6 percent in the same quarter last year. The increase in the effective income tax is primarily due to the timing of the realization of tax benefits compared to the same period last year. 115 King Street Stellarton, NS B0K 1S0 3

4 Adjusted Net Earnings from Continuing Operations After factoring in the impact of the adjustments for items which are considered not indicative of underlying business operating performance, Empire recorded adjusted net earnings from continuing operations, net of non-controlling interest, of $131.7 million ($1.43 per diluted share) for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 compared to $89.7 million ($1.32 per diluted share) recorded in the first quarter last year, a 46.8 percent increase. For the quarter ended August 2, 2014, Empire had a weighted average number of shares outstanding (fully diluted) of 92.3 million compared to 68.2 million for the same period last year. Net Earnings from Continuing Operations Consolidated net earnings from continuing operations, net of non-controlling interest, in the first quarter equalled $123.1 million ($1.33 per diluted share) compared to $82.6 million ($1.21 per diluted share) in the first quarter last year. The increase is the result of the growth in operating income, partially offset by the increase in finance costs and income taxes. The following table reconciles reported net earnings from continuing operations, net of non-controlling interest, to adjusted net earnings from continuing operations. August 2, 2014 August 3, 2013 ($ in millions, except per share amounts, net of tax) Net earnings from continuing operations by segment (1) : Food retailing $ $ 79.2 Investments and other operations Net earnings from continuing operations (1) $ $ 82.6 EPS from continuing operations (fully diluted) (2) $ 1.33 $ 1.21 Adjustments: Intangible amortization associated with the Canada Safeway acquisition $ 6.0 $ - Finance costs associated with the network rationalization Transaction costs associated with the Canada Safeway acquisition Plant closure Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations (1)(3) $ $ 89.7 Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations by segment (1) : Food retailing $ $ 86.3 Investments and other operations Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations (1)(3) $ $ 89.7 Adjusted EPS from continuing operations (fully diluted) (2) $ 1.43 $ 1.32 (1) Net of non-controlling interest. (2) Empire had a weighted average number of shares outstanding (fully diluted) of 92.3 million in the first quarter compared to 68.2 million in the first quarter last year.

Sales Empire s food retailing segment reported sales of $6,222.7 million for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014, an increase of $1,627.8 million or 35.4 percent over the same quarter last year. The growth in sales is primarily the result of sales from Safeway operations and food inflation, offset by increased competitive square footage in the market and ongoing competitive intensity. Sobeys same-store sales increased 1.3 percent during the first quarter of fiscal Gross Profit Gross profit recorded by Sobeys increased $508.1 million to $1,545.9 million for the 13 weeks ended August 2, 2014 compared to the same period last year. Gross margin increased 225 basis points to percent compared to percent in the first quarter last year. The increase in gross margin is significantly impacted by gross profit contribution related to Safeway operations.

The other 115 King Street Stellarton, NS B0K 1S0 6
