An essential tool for sales, marketing and trade spending professionals
Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
F&D Reports, a division of industry-leading credit consulting firm Information Clearinghouse Inc. (ICI), is pleased to announce the release of its comprehensive Strategic Sales Insights (SSI) report on Ahold, providing a detailed analysis of the Company’s current operational and competitive status as well as potential future growth and retail activity.
After making several acquisitions that helped grow its store base and boost global sales last year, Ahold plans to continue to be highly acquisitive in 2013 and beyond. The Company’s U.S. sales, which have improved modestly over the past five years, comprise about 61% of total revenue. Ahold USA’s Stop & Shop chain controls parts of New England and competes with A&P in New York, while its Giant-Landover and Giant-Carlisle chains command markets in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Washington D.C. In addition to gaining control of Philadelphia after Supervalu completed the sale of several banners including Acme Markets earlier this year, Ahold has been named as a potential suitor for Harris Teeter Supermarkets, which has been exploring a possible sale since February.
