  3. Regional Retail Panorama 3

  4. Latin America Food Retail 2010 • During 2010 Latin America’s food retail business was crossed by several simultaneous phenomenon that include: the expansion of small surfaces, the growth of the wholesale business and the internationalization of retailers to less developed markets such as Peru, market that offers attractive growth potential. • The expansion of the Wholesale business in Latin America The expansion of the wholesale business in Latin America during 2010 responds to several factors in which we can include the shift in consumer habits, inflation and the expansion of small surfaces that shop in these formats in order to obtain their stock. During 2010 the number of Cash & Carry stores in the region grew by 127 stores, some of which were launched in new markets, such as Carrefour’s Atacadao, that announced the launch of its first store under this banner in Argentina in 2010 and that finally opened in April 2011. The largest portion of this growth, however, comes as a result of a redefinition of banners in Chile, undertaken by SMU Group, that shifted 59 stores to the Mayorista 10 banner. Carrefour also launched its Atacadao format in Colombia during last year, with the launch of two cash & carry outlets by the end of 2010, and the promise of an additional four stores during 2011. 4

  5. Makro Argentina also invested during 2010, with the acquisition of 100% of the cleaning product company Basualdo, with operations in several provinces in the country, and the acquisition of Cordoba’s firm, Tarquino. • The latest event in this direction happened in early 2011, following the announcements that took place during 2010, with the confirmation by Chilean SMU Group, property of Saieh-Rendic Group, of the acquisition of 100% of wholesaler ALVI, which until that moment belonged in 35% to Walmart Chile and 65% to the Villablanca family.   • Small Surface Growth: In the other end of the spectrum, during 2010 we also witnessed the growth of smaller commercial surfaces, mainly of the bodegas and mini markets formats. In Mexico, for instance, the Bodega format added 215 new stores during last year, driven mainly by the North American retailer Walmart that, in addition, also bet strongly on the Bodega Express format, that launched 142 new stores in the country.   Also in Mexico, Soriana began operating the Soriana Express banner that, with the objective to compete with Walmart’s bodegas, opened 20 new stores. Colombia was another market in which the tendency of opening small store formats became apparent, with the launch of Exito’s convenience store banner, Exito Express, a format of an average 200 square meters. During 2010 the company opened nine stores and announced the plans for expanding this format during 2011. 5

  6. Another retailer that began operating the Express format was Carrefour, with the launch of its first two stores under this banner in Bogotá, Colombia’s capital city. • In Argentina the French retailer launched Carrefour Market, and announced that it will convert all Express stores to this banner, while all Carrefour mini markets, launched in 2008, will be converted into the Express banner. Meanwhile, the retailer announced that it will continue to grow in this format with the launch of 20 new Express stores. • Internationalization of retailers to high potential markets: Large retail groups have extended their regional reach during 2010 entering new markets or strengthening its presence in markets where they have been operating for a short period of time. This was the case of Dutch retailer Makro, which extended its presence to the Peruvian market with the launch of two additional stores, adding a total of four stores in the country. Also, making its debut entrance to Peru is the Chilean SMU Group that, following the acquisition of Chilean retailer Alvi, has become the owner of eleven stores that operated in the country under the Mayorsa banner. The Chilean retailer Cencosud reaffirmed its presence in Brazil with the acquisition of three new stores wich include Super Familia, Perini and Bretas.   The convenience store retailer Oxxo also extended its presence in Colombia, where the group launched twelve new stores. Strong rumors also suggest that the retailer could enter Peru and Chile in the next two years. 6

  19. MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS 2010 • Last 2010 was characterized, among other things, by the internationalization of retailers towards fast moving markets with big potential, in addition to mergers and acquisitions that aimed at strengthening positions and easing the entry to new markets. • One of the most notorious cases in this regard were Walmart’s operations in Central America which underwent a strategic expansion plan that helped develop and grow in the countries in Central America where the retailer operates. • The retailer that did the largest number of acquisitions during 2010 was the Chilean Cencosud, that purchased the Brazilian firms Bretas, Perini and Supemercados Familia, becoming the largest supermarket operator in the northereastern region of the country, strengthening its presence in a market where the three top retailers are giants of the likes of Grupo Pão de Açucar, Carrefour and Walmart. • An important event that took place in Latin American during 2010 was the expropiation of Cativen stores in Venezuela, which belonged to the French Casino Group, done by the Venezuelan Government of Hugo Chávez. During an early stage, Chavez had said that the Casino stores would become part of a gonvernments retailing chain, however, and after a long negotiation process, the parties agreed that Casino would remain with 20% of the company’s shares that, from that moment on, were to be known as Red de Abastos Bicentenario. • After years of intense movements in terms of mergers and acquisitions by Chilean retailer SMU Group, during 2010 these activities slowed their pace. The young retailer did however acquire wholesaler Alvi, wich enable its entrance to Peru, through the Mayorsa banner in the country, in addition to strengthening its position in the Chilean retailer industry. 19

  20. MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS 2010 • In line with the tendency of joining forces, Exito Group underwent a process of commercial alliance with the Caja de Compensación Familiar, CAFAM, in Colombia, which lead to Exito operate 31 Cafam stores, and the latter 91 pharmacies of Exito, Ley and Pomona. In addition to this alliance, in 2010 the merger between Almacenes Exito and Carulla Vivero was completed. • Another retailer that added stores during 2010 in Colombia was Olimpica, that acquired three Merkepaisa stores and the whole of the Megasuper store network. • In Argentina, one of the most relevant events was the exit of hard discount stores, Leader Price, of French Casino Group, who sold its operations to the national retailer Super Eki which, in turn, converted them into the Super Eki Plus banner. • In addition, Carrefour Argentina acquired nine Best stores of the national retailer La Anónima. Jumbo Retail named a new partner, UBS Bank, that now operates 38.6% of the Cencosud branch. In response to the reactivation of the wholesale segment in the country, Makro bought Cordoba’s company Tarquino, strengthening its leading position in the Argentine market. • Lastly, one the most important acquisitions in the region took place in the pharmaceutical segment, with the purchase of Farmacias Ahumada S.A (FASA) by Casa Saba in Mexico which also acquired its operations in Mexico, Peru and Chile. 20

  22. In 2010 Walmart was once again the leader in Latin America’s food retail segment, finding itself like previous years at the top of the chart. The retailer grew at similar levels than in 2009, reaching during 2010 annual gross sales of 15.7%. The consolidation of these positive results in the region, which according to the retailer “is one of the main growth drivers of the company”, is in part consequence to the performance in markets such as Brazil and Mexico, in addition to the consolidation of its operations in Central America as a result of the culmination of the acquisition process. The French retailer Carrefour was knocked out of the second place place by Casino that, despite of having suffered a backlash in its operation is Venezuela, was able to secure the second place in the Top 10 Ranking of the region, leaving Carrefour at number 3. The most important movements in the chart with regards to the retailers total sales during the year were Walmarts 15.7% rise, Group Casino with 37%, Carrefour with 15.1%, Cencosud (21.4%), Soriana (11.4%), Comercial Mexicana (7.3%), Oxxo (22.5%), Grupo Chedraui (13.2%) and Grupo SMU with 33,1%. The Dutch retailer Makro suffered a decrease of 3% during the period, due in part to the strong invesments the retailer underwent during 2010. Makro also managed to grow two positions in the ranking, placing itself in 2010 at number six, driven by its Brazilian sales. Top 10 Retailers in Latin America Source: ILACAD World Retail 22
