Supermarket Chains

In February 2013, it acquired the Kimat Hinam chain
In 2013 the tendency of growth of the small supermarket chains continued,
to the detriment of the two leading chains, on the backdrop of increased
competition and the migration of customers in the direction of the discount
chains. Furthermore, regulatory procedures that began as a result of the
social protest, and which are expected to continue also in the coming year,
will continue to set challenges for the two big chains. In 2013 the earnings
of the 23 leading supermarket chains totaled about NIS 37.3 billion, an
increase of about 3% compared to last year, albeit with continued erosion
of operational profits in the branch. This is especially true for the two major
chains – “Shufersal” and “Blue Square”, which registered drops in operational
profits in the amounts of 54% and 69% respectively in the first quarter of
2014 as opposed to the same quarter last year.
In March 2014 the Knesset passed, in the second and third readings, the
Law for Increasing Competition in the Food Branch, which was based on the
recommendations of the Kedmi Committee, with the aim of contributing to
the increase of competition in the food branch and thereby reduce the prices
of products for consumers. The proposed Law includes three main steps to
increase competition in the food branch, and among them, regulating the
activity between the retailers and suppliers, in the framework of which it would
be prohibited for a retailer to intervene concerning prices or conditions that
the supplier determines for another retailer, and the supplier will be prevented
from intervening in the manner of arrangement of the merchandise in the
supermarkets. Furthermore, the chains will be obliged to publish on the Internet
the prices of goods in each store separately and also to send an electronic file
of the purchase invoice. It was also determined that the country would be
mapped according to areas of demand and the market share of the leading
chains would be estimated for each of them, while in geographic areas in
which a retailer has a relatively high market share, it will not be permitted to
open additional stores. Furthermore, in the first six years after the Law takes
effect, it will be possible to instruct a retailer that has a market share greater
than 50% in a given geographic area, to cease its operations in that area. In
June 2014 an initial examination was undertaken by the Antitrust Authority
and it found that about 47 branches of “Shufersal” and “Blue Square” deviate
from the maximum market share determined by the Law.
Shufersal was ranked in first place with earnings of NIS 11,909 million. Rami
Levy was ranked third with earnings of NIS 3,215million. Since the beginning of
2013 the company opened three branches and currently operates 26 branches
on a total net commercial area of 45 thousand square meters.
Yeinot Bitan concluded the year in fourth place with earnings of NIS 2,800
million. At the end of 2013 the company operated 65 branches on an area
of about 77 thousand square meters. Victory Supermarket Chain was ranked
tenth with earnings of NIS 739 million. The company operates 25 branches
on an area of 24.5 thousand square meters. Ranked fifteenth, the Mania
Group concluded the year with earnings of NIS 370 million, a growth of 9%
in relation to last year. Big Zol was ranked in the 21st place with earnings of
about NIS 200 million.
