INVESTOR ALERT: LEVI & KORSINSKY, LLP Announces Investigation of SAFEWAY INC. and Its Board of Directors In Connection With the Sale of the Company to Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. -- SWY

10:57 EDT Tuesday, March 11, 2014

NEW YORK, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating the Board of Directors of Safeway Inc. ("Safeway" or "the Company") (NYSE: SWY) for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law in connection with the sale of the Company to Cerberus Capital Management, L.P.

Under the terms of the transaction, Safeway shareholders will receive value estimated at $40.00 per share for each share of Safeway they own including $32.50 in cash, the right to receive pro-rata distributions of net proceeds from primarily non-core assets with an estimated value of $3.65 per share, and shares of Blackhawk Network Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAWK). The investigation concerns whether the Safeway Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Cerberus is underpaying for Safeway shares. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Safeway stock at $46.00 per share.
