Safeway gets second request for merger info from FTC

Pleasanton, Calif. -- Safeway Inc. has received a request for additional information and documents from the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") in connection with the FTC's review of the previously announced agreement and plan of merger among Safeway and Albertson’s. The second request extends the waiting period imposed by the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 until 30 days after Safeway and Albertsons have substantially complied with the second request, unless that period is extended voluntarily by the parties or terminated sooner by the FTC.

Safeway and Albertsons say they have been working, and will continue to work, cooperatively with the FTC.
