SAFEWAY INC. SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation Of Buyout

Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating potential legal claims against the board of directors of Safeway Inc.

Under the terms of the agreement, public shareholders of Safeway will receive value estimated at $40.00 per share for each share of Safeway they own. This includes $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 GS: HAWK).

The investigation concerns whether Safeway’s board of directors failed to adequately shop the Company and obtain the best possible value for Safeway’s shareholders before entering into an agreement with Albertsons. According to Yahoo! Finance, at least one analyst has issued a price target for Safeway stock at $46.00 per share.

If you own the common stock of Safeway and purchased your shares before March 6, 2014, if you have information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth D.
