    Asda's sales growth outpaces potential buyer Sainsbury's

    British supermarket chain Asda, owned by Walmart (WMT.N), reported a sixth straight quarter of underlying sales growth on Thursday, outpacing Sainsbury's (SBRY.L), its potential buyer. Asda agreed in April to a 7.3 billion pound cash and shares takeover by Sainsbury's - a combination that could overtake Tesco (TSCO.L) as Britain's biggest supermarket group if it is approved by the country's competition regulator. Asda said its like-for-like sales rose 2.0 percent in its fiscal third quarter to Sept. 30, boosted by strong sales of own label products.

    Sainsbury's-Asda deal 'extremely detrimental' to consumers, says supplier

    Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) proposed takeover of Asda would be "extremely detrimental" to consumers, an unidentified major supplier to the supermarket groups has argued in a submission to Britain's competition regulator. Sainsbury's agreed in April a 7.3 billion pounds cash and shares takeover of Wal-Mart's (WMT.N) Asda - a combination that could overtake Tesco (TSCO.L) as Britain's biggest supermarket group if it is approved by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). A submission from "supplier B", published on Tuesday, said the combined group and Tesco would benefit from a duopoly with 60 percent of Britain's grocery market.

    FTSE capitulates to stronger pound, U.S. election nerves

    MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's blue chip share index was lower on Tuesday as the pound strengthened amid renewed optimism over a Brexit deal while investors took risk off the table as Americans went to the polls in midterm elections. Disappointing results from the fourth-largest supermarket group Morrisons and bookmaker William Hill also weighed. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) top share index ended the day down 0.9 percent as a stronger pound made UK exports less competitive.

    Morrisons' run of sales growth hits three years

    Morrisons (MRW.L), Britain's No. 4 supermarket group, took its run of quarterly sales growth to three years on Tuesday, driven by its wholesale business, though the rate of increase slowed after a summer bonanza, sending its shares lower. The stock, up nearly 19 percent this year prior to the third quarter update, fell as much as 6.5 percent as Morrisons' sales, though still robust compared to rivals, undershot analysts' average forecast. "The like-for-like (sales growth) we've reported in the quarter with strong volume growth, we're happy with that," finance chief Trevor Strain told reporters.

    Sainsbury's-Asda deal gets boost as UK includes discounters in probe

    Britain's competition regulator will include German discounters Aldi and Lidl, and online giant Amazon, in its market probe of Sainsbury's proposed takeover of Asda, boosting the deal's chances of being approved without a big sale of stores. With the merger of No.2 player Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) and No.3 Asda (WMT.N) set to overtake industry leader Tesco (TSCO.L), a narrow definition of the market might have spelled trouble for the deal. "The level and impact of competition presented by newer or growing retailers – including Aldi and Lidl – will be considered alongside these issues," the CMA said.

    Former Tesco executives encouraged profit overstatement, misled stock market, court told

    Two former senior executives of Tesco (TSCO.L) abused their positions to encourage practices that resulted in a 250 million pounds overstatement of expected profits and misled the stock market, a prosecutor told a London court on Monday. With a motive to support the share price of Britain's biggest retailer, secure huge compensation packages and retain their jobs, the two executives "pressurised or coerced" unidentified subordinates into compliance, lead prosecutor Sasha Wass told London's Southwark Crown Court. Christopher Bush, 52, who was managing director of Tesco UK, and John Scouler, 50, who was UK food commercial director, both deny charges of fraud by abuse of position and false accounting.

    Casino gambles on Amazon-style checkout free Champs Elysees store

    Casino is doing away with cashiers in a new shop near the Champs Elysees in a French version of the Amazon Go checkout-free convenience stores in the United States. Like other retailers, Casino is trying to adapt to the challenges of online shopping and more such stores could be on the cards if the format is successful, said Tina Schuler, who heads its Geant, Leader Price and Casino supermarkets. As well as the threat posed by online competitors, Casino is battling to ease investor concerns over its debt levels and intense competition within France, which have sent its shares down by some 30 percent since the start of the year.
