    The Company

    Albertsons (ACI) is one of the largest food retailers in the United States, with 2,252 stores across 34 states and the District of Columbia. It operates 20 iconic banners with on average 85 years of operating history, including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Carrs, Jewel-Osco, Acme, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Supermarkets, Market Street and Haggen.

    The company employs approximately 270,000 employees who serve on average more than 33 million customers each week. It has instituted a variety of programs both in store and online to maximize customer choice and convenience. They have significantly expanded digital capabilities over the last several years.

    Market Opportunity

    The company is ranked #1 or #2 by market share in 68% of the 121 MSAs in which it operates. Their portfolio of well-known banners has strong customer loyalty and ties within the local communities. Seven of Albertsons banners have operated for more than 100 years, with an average of over 85 years across all banners.

    Albertsons said same-store sales jumped 47% over the first four weeks of its current fiscal year through March 28, rose 21% over the next four weeks (the period ending April 25) and another 21% over the following four weeks (ending May 23).


    Various operating factors and general economic conditions affecting the food retail industry may adversely affect business and operating results.

    Competition in retail industry is intense, and failure to compete successfully may adversely affect profitability and operating results.

    Product supply disruptions, especially those to perishable products, may have an adverse effect on profitability and operating results.


    Albertsons (ACI) plans to raise $1.3B by offering 65.8 million shares at a price range of $18 to $20. At the higher end of the proposed range, ACI would command a fully diluted market value of $10 billion.

    The corporation generated net income of $466 million on revenue of $62.5 billion in fiscal 2019. It has also reduced outstanding Net Debt by approximately $3.0 billion since the end of fiscal 2017. We estimate that ACI market cap after an IPO will be around $13B. The expected return on investment is moderate (up to 40%).

    How IPO Investments Work
    1. Collection of funds

    2-3 weeks before the start of the company publishes information about the opening of trading: financial statements for 3 years, a description of the company's business, plans for the future, as well as the risks that management sees in their own business. We analyze such offers and publish the best ones. Investors apply for deposits. Before the deadline for applications, you can change the request or cancel it.

    Threshold amount
    2. Buy shares

    We submit one large application for the purchase of shares by pre-subscription with reduced price to large investors. The application may be rejected in part or in full. Over the past three years, our applications have been rejected only three times. The next day, or every other day, we'll know at what price and at what percentage the order is executed, and we'll post it on «The my investment page».

    3. Start Bidding

    The price of shares is rising from the first day due to the demand of investors deprived of the opportunity to buy shares before trading. Most of the stocks we've been recommending buying over the past three years have been starting to trade on the stock exchange at tens of percent higher than the price at which customers bought the shares. There comes a Lock up period when it is forbidden to sell shares purchased by subscription. Typically lasts 3 months.

    Early profit fixation

    Although no shares are allowed to be sold during the lock-up period, our traders seek to offer investors fixed profit by way of using various financial instruments, including forwards, options, short positions etc.

    From the investor’s point of view this means that he or she may close an investment by paying a certain part of its value (as a rule, approximately 15 percent). This is due to high prices for the instruments which are employed to ensure availability of fixed profit. As such, you shall press any relevant button in the Investor Account as soon as it is active.

    The closing procedure is similar to commencement of investment business. You shall file a bid which is executed within a business day by UT. So, your investment is closed at the price currently prevailing on the stock exchange. However, we rarely recommend using this feature, since upon expiry of an applicable lock-up period the average performance is higher.



    3 per cent of the share price. This fee is charged as soon as your investment bid is confirmed.


    1.75 per cent of the purchase price paid for your shares as soon as trading is closed. This fee is charged upon closure of any relevant investment.


    20 per cent of the profit your derive. This fee is charged only if you show positive performance as of the moment any relevant investment is closed.


    Usually, 15 per cent (depends on the stock exchange environment). It is calculated per each investment individually.
