Use of financial measures that are not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
Adjusted EBITDA is a measure that is not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (Non-GAAP) and is defined as income before financial income (expenses) net, other gains (losses) net, changes in fair value of investment property, taxes, share in gains of associates, depreciation and amortization in addition to share in adjusted EBITDA of equity accounted investees and share in EBITDA of branches which were resolved to cease their operation and accumulated revaluation profits of real estate properties that were realized in the period and capital gains from realizing real estate properties that were self-used. It is an accepted ratio in the retail industry. It is presented as an additional performance measure, since it enables comparisons of operating performances between periods and companies while neutralizing potential differences resulting from changes in capital structures, taxes, age of property and equipment and its related depreciation expenses. Adjusted EBITDA, however, should not be related to as a single measure or as an alternative to operating income, another performance indicator and to cash flow information, which are prepared using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) as indicators of profit or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA does not take the costs of servicing debt and other liabilities into account, including capital expenditures and therefore it does not necessarily indicate the amounts that may be available to the use of the company and in addition Adjusted EBITDA should not be compared to other indicators with similar names reported by other companies because of differences in the calculation of these indicators. See the reconciliation between our net income and Adjusted EBITDA which is presented in this press release as well as "Use of Non-GAAP Measures" below.

      In the Supermarkets segment, which include the results of 32 branches designated for closure, gross profit amounted to NIS 621.0 million (U.S. $164.8 million) (23.8% of revenues), compared to NIS 774.3 million in the corresponding period last year (26.2% of revenues), a decrease of 19.8% deriving from a decrease in sales, as aforesaid.

      Selling, general and administrative expenses in the first half of 2015 amounted to NIS 1,130.7 million (U.S. $300.0 million) (23.3% of revenues), compared to expenses of NIS 1,221.5 million (21.8% of revenues) in the comparable period last year, a decrease of 7.4% which mainly derived from decrease in selling general and administrative expenses in the supermarkets segment. 

      In the Fueling and Commercial Sites segment, in the first half of 2015 these expenses amounted to NIS 339.7 million (U.S. $90.1 million) compared to NIS 328.5 million in the corresponding period last year, an increase of 3.4% deriving from additional costs for opening new fueling and commercial sites and from the updated minimum wages starting from April 1, 2015.

      In the Supermarkets segment, selling, general and administrative expenses, which include the results of 32 branches designated for closure amounted to NIS 742.0 million (U.S. $196.9 million) compared to expenses of NIS 866.2 million in the corresponding period last year, a decrease of 14.3% deriving mainly from reduction in selling spaces and efficiency measures.

      In the real estate segment in the first half of 2015, net impairment loss of NIS 64.7 million (U.S $ 17.2 million) was recorded compared to an increase in value of NIS 10.4 million in the corresponding period last year. The valuations as of June 30, 2015 reflected the possible changes resulting from the creditors' arrangement of Mega and its announcement regarding its exiting from supermarket branches. The total impairment recorded in relation to the assets leased to Mega mainly derived from increasing the discount interest rate in the agreement's term at the rate of 1.5% compared to the discount rate that was used for previous valuations and from possible update of cash flows originating from assets in respect of which Mega may seek to be released of the related lease agreements. In addition, the impairment in the reported period includes the effect of change in revenue flow deriving, on one hand, from decrease in CPI because the Company's lease agreements are CPI linked and on the other hand, from updating the value of additional rights in some assets.

      In the consolidated report of Alon Blue Square, the majority of the impairment is reversed since it was recorded for branches that are used by Mega and classified in the consolidated financial statements as fixed assets.

      In the Houseware and Textile segment, gross profit amounted to NIS 34.5 million (U.S. $9.2 million) (60.5% of revenues), compared to NIS 42.1 million in the second quarter of 2014 (58.9% of revenues), a decrease of 18.1% which was derived from the holiday timing.

      Selling, general and administrative expenses

      Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2015 amounted to NIS 532.0 million (U.S. $141.2 million) (22.5% of revenues), compared to expenses of NIS 619.1 million (21.4% of revenues) in the comparable quarter last year.

      In the Fueling and Commercial Sites segment, these expenses amounted to NIS 174.0 million (U.S. $46.2 million) compared to NIS 165.1 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 5.4% deriving from additional costs for opening new fueling and commercial sites and from updated minimum wages starting from April 1, 2015.

      In the Supermarkets segment, selling, general and administrative expenses which include the results of 32 branches designated for closure, amounted to NIS 331.0 million (U.S. $87.8 million) compared to expenses of NIS 439.0 million in the second quarter of 2014, a decrease of 24.6% deriving mainly from a decrease in the number of branches and efficiency measures.

The valuations as of June 30, 2015, reflect the possible changes resulting from the creditors' arrangement of Mega and its announcement regarding its exiting from branches. The total impairment recorded in relation to the assets leased to Mega mainly derived from increasing the discount interest rate in the agreement's term at the rate of 1.5% compared to the discount rate that was used for previous valuations and from possible update of cash flows originating from assets in respect of which Mega may seek to be released of the related lease agreements. In addition, the impairment in the reported period includes the effect of change in revenue flow deriving, on one hand, from decrease in CPI because the Company's lease agreements are CPI linked and on the other hand, from updating the value of additional rights in the asset.

      In the consolidated report of Alon Blue Square, the majority of the impairment was reversed since it was recorded for branches that are used by Mega and classified in the consolidated financial statements as fixed assets.

      Reorganization Plan – Mega

      a.       An agreement with the employee committee and Histadrut:

      On June 21, 2015, a collective agreement and understanding letter were signed between Mega's management, the Company, Mega's employee committee and the Histadrut (the employees' agreement), effective from April 1, 2015. The following are the principles of the employee agreement:

      1.      The unionized employees waive wage cost of NIS 35 million per year effective from April 1, 2015 such that the waiver amount for 2015 is NIS 26 million. (of which NIS 16 million was included in the results of second quarter of 2015).

      2.      The retirement benefits of employees whose employment is terminated shall be according to the collective agreement or the personal agreement. In addition, the balance in the severance fund on the date of the agreement shall be for financing purposes and encouragement of retirement.

      3.      Mega shall immediately close 32 losing branches according to the list attached to the employees' agreement, the employment of the employees in the branches to be closed shall be terminated and Mega shall offer positions to 200 of the permanent employees in the branches to be closed jobs at other branches that shall continue to operate in lieu of temporary employees (permanent employees shall retire at their free will) in these branches.

      4.      Management shall significantly reduce the personnel at the Company's headquarters and shall cut their wages resulting in an annual saving of NIS 25 million.

      5.      Mega shall allocate 33% of its share capital to a legal corporation that shall be established by the employees' representation for the active and permanent employees. The corporation to be established may appoint one-third of the Company's Board who are not external directors and in any event not less than two members where one is the chairman of the employees committee and the other is a professional party ("The professional party").

      6.      As of the date of issuing these financial statements, it was not yet decided whether the transfer of shares to the employees shall be effectuated by allocating new shares or by way of transfer by the Company of Mega shares. In view of the fact that Mega has shareholders' deficiency, a part of such deficiency was not allocated to non- controlling interests. Mega estimates that the value of the benefit to the employees in respect of such grant is immaterial.

      7.      In addition, the Company committed under the employees agreement to provide certain credit lines during the first five years of the agreement. This commitment was replaced by a commitment to extend higher credit lines to which the parent company agreed under the creditors' arrangement (see below).

      b.      Debt arrangement between Mega and its creditors:

      On June 29, 2015, Mega filed with the District Court in Lod a petition under section 350 of the Companies' Law-1999 to convent meetings of certain of Mega's creditors- suppliers, property owners and banks- in order to reach an arrangement with each of these creditor groups as part of consummating Mega's reorganization plan. On July 1, 2015, the Court approved to convene the meetings and granted Mega an interim period of two weeks during to reach a reorganization arrangement with the creditors.

      On July 12, 2015, the creditors' meetings of the Company convened for the purpose of voting on the arrangements being presented. On July 14 and 15, 2015, the Court approved the creditors' arrangement ("the arrangement approval date"). The principles of the arrangement are as follows:

      1.      The Company's contribution

      The Company shall extend to Mega, effective June 1, 2015, NIS 320 million as follows:

      • NIS 240 million by way of loans or guarantees of which NIS 160 million shall be converted into Mega's share capital (before allocating 33% of Mega's share capital to employees by virtue of the collective agreement signed on June 21, 2015). The balance of NIS 80 million beyond the converted amount to share capital, shall be repaid only after the full repayment of the effective debt to banks and suppliers (as defined in the arrangement).
      • NIS 80 million as a framework for working capital based on the current needs of Mega.
      • The funding, as aforesaid shall take effect from June 2015 up to June 30, 2015. Mega has used NIS 45 million of such funding.
      • The debts of Mega and Eden Teva Market Ltd. to banks that were secured by the Company's guarantee or debts that are shared by Mega and the Company (the guaranteed debt) shall be paid by the Company subject to the arrangements to be reached by the Company with the banks with respect to the guaranteed debt. As of the balance sheet date, NIS 68 million of the guaranteed debt is a loan in a joint bank account of Mega and the Company and NIS 185 million are Company guaranteed loans taken by Mega and NIS 30 million are Company guaranteed loans taken by Eden Teva Market from banks.  

      2.      Arrangement with banks

After three years, the effective debt principal shall be repaid over six years in equal quarterly installments.

      b.      The effective debt principal shall bear an annual interest of 3% (CPI linked) effective from the arrangement approval date which shall be paid every quarter effective from January 2016 thereafter.

      c.       In the six months from the arrangement approval date, the Company shall pay in respect of its liabilities to banks only current maturities under the current loan terms, including under existing loans and on call loans shall be renewed automatically including those not renewed in the last three months provided that the interest is paid on a current basis. This consent of the banks is subject to no other creditor of the Company accelerating its debts for immediate repayment or not renewing its on call loans.

      d.      So long as the guaranteed debt is not paid in full, the Company shall not distribute dividends until the end of 2018. After this date, the Company may distribute dividends only if after the distribution a minimum equity remains (after the effect of guarantees granted by the Company for Mega's liabilities) exceeding NIS 200 million remains.

      e.       So long as the guaranteed debt is not paid in full, after the issuance of the Company's financial statements for 2016, the Company's net asset value (NAV) shall be reviewed on economic basis by a renowned expert to be agreed upon by the banks and the Company and if the NAV of the Company minus its liabilities (including the guaranteed debt for Mega to banks) is less than NIS 100 million – it shall confer upon the banks another basis to cause the guaranteed debt to be immediately repayable and this is beyond the grounds available to them today.  

      3.      Arrangement with suppliers

The deferred debt shall bear in the grace period, interest (unlinked) at 2% per annum (grace interest) and shall bear in the repayment period, interest (unlinked) at 3% per annum (repayment interest). The deferred debt shall not be linked.

      c.       The consideration for goods to be supplied effective from August 1, 2015 shall be paid as usual under the credit conditions agreed with each supplier prior to the effective date. In July Mega worked on cash basis.

      d.      Suppliers shall not change the credit days as agreed with them prior to the effective date for two years from the arrangement approval date.   

      e.       This arrangement shall not be deemed by the suppliers as an insurance event for the purpose of filing a claim to the credit insurers (Clal Credit Insurance Ltd. BSSH – Israel Credit Insurances Ltd.) and the suppliers may not apply to credit insurers for exercising their insurance policy in respect of this arrangement. This arrangement is not  intended to impair the rights of the large suppliers towards the credit insurers with respect to the deferred debt or the effective debt, if not paid.

      f.        Each large supplier shall be granted a non-marketable option for five months from the issuance date of such option to convert the deferred debt (in whole or in part) into the Company shares by allocating shares in lieu of the deferred debt to the supplier (the option). During the first two months from the allocation date of the option, the exercise price shall be the price of the Company's share in rights issuance (base price).

      Upon the elapse of two months from the allocation of the option, the exercise price of the option shall be the higher of: the closing price of the Company's share during 30 trading days that preceded the conversion or 120% of the base price.

      b.      During the period of 90 days from the arrangement approval date, Mega may file individual petitions with the court to approve the assignment of its rights and obligations under an existing agreement and to waive an existing agreement in connection with rental agreements signed by Mega, for which Mega may conclude that such agreements are not economically viable for Mega and impede its continued existence.

      c.       Following the court's ruling in the matter, on July 21, 2015, the general meeting of BSRE approved a deferral of 5% of the monthly rental fees for one year from the meeting date, which are scheduled to be paid by Mega during the course of the year.

      d.      As of the report date, Mega closed most branches according to the employees' agreement. With respect to some branches, Mega signed agreements with third parties to assign them the rental agreements (these agreements are still subject to the fulfillment of several conditions precedent not yet fulfilled).  Regarding the other branches, Mega is conducting negotiations with third parties for assigning these agreements, whereas for some branches, Mega intends to apply to court with the proper motion as detailed in section b above.

On July 27, 2015, the Company reached an agreement with Discount Bank under which the bank shall not require an immediate repayment of on call loans until September 30, 2015, and by that the condition precedent for approving the arrangement of Mega was met by the Company.

      Dissolution and petition for stay of proceedings of Mega's subsidiaries

      a.      Stay of proceedings in Eden Teva Market

      On July 9, 2015, Eden Teva Market (a company held 51% by Mega) filed a petition with the district court in Lod seeking an order for stay of proceedings (under section 350 of the Companies' law; the stay of proceedings petition) to which it attached a proposal of a creditors arrangement to the creditors of Eden Teva Market. Eden Teva Market's debts are estimated at NIS 81 million, excluding debts to the banks amounting to NIS 74.6 million. Mega guarantees the debts of Eden Teva Market towards Leumi Bank and the First International Bank in the amount of NIS 35.7 million and NIS 9.7 million, respectively. Mega also guarantees the debts of Eden Teva Market towards Hapoalim Bank in the amount of NIS 29.2 million.

      Mega extended financing to Eden Teva Market for the stay of proceedings period in a total amount of NIS 6.6 million. This financing is granted as reorganization expenses. This amount is included under "other expenses".

      On July 9, 2015, the court granted the stay of proceedings petition and issued the requested order to Eden Teva Market. In addition, the court appointed a trustee for the stay of proceedings period.

      On July 15, 2015, the stay of proceedings was approved to Eden Teva Market for an additional 30 days.

      On July 22, 2015, Mega notified the court that it has withdrawn the arrangement proposal it offered to the creditors of Eden Teva Market under the stay of proceedings petition. In the notice to the court, Mega indicated that it had closely reviewed the implications of the reorganization arrangement that was approved and after its operating results became evident in the interim period, from the date of filing of the petition with the court which were more severe than those that were forecasted at the beginning, as well the rejection of the proposal by the property owners to reduce the rental fees, Mega's management and its Board concluded that Mega is unable to meet the proposed arrangement made in the stay of proceedings petition.

      b.      On June 28, 2015, a petition for the dissolution of Dr. Baby (a company held by Mega) was filed and a temporary receiver was appointed by the court.

      c.       In view of the stay of proceedings process of Eden Teva Market and the appointment of temporary receiver for Dr. Baby, Mega lost its control in these subsidiaries after the balance sheet date. In the absence of financial data for the second quarter of 2015 for these subsidiaries, Mega ceased to consolidate the results of such subsidiaries from April 1, 2015. In the second quarter, the Company included a loss from loss of control which includes investment de consolidation from the balance sheet, recording expenses for the guarantees Mega and the Company provided and the amounts Mega transferred to the subsidiaries after April 1, 2015.

      Going concern comment in Mega's financial statements

      Mega and its subsidiaries have accumulated significant losses in recent years. These losses in the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 amounted to NIS 545 million and NIS 632 million, respectively. In 2014 and 2013 the losses of Mega and its subsidiaries amounted to NIS 436 million and NIS 130 million, respectively. The shareholders' deficiency of Mega as of June 30, 2015 amounted to NIS 596 million and the excess of current liabilities over current assets on that date amounted to NIS 908 million

      Following the deterioration in Mega's financial position and as part of its reorganization plan, Mega reached agreements with its employees and an arrangement with part of its creditors under a process pursuant to section 350 of the companies' law conducted in Lod district court. In addition, Mega filed a petition with the district court seeking an order for stay of proceedings regarding its subsidiaries. Mega's management believes that the implementation of reorganization plan in collaboration with the employees including the receipt of the full support funds to which the Company committed under the arrangement and the continuous supply of products by Mega's suppliers, shall result in the improvement of Mega's financial position. Furthermore, a substantial component which is a condition for improving the financial results of Mega is an increase, in a short period of time, in Mega's sales turnover which was substantially harmed in the period following the process in court and the uncertainty created among the customers and the suppliers.

      In view of the uncertainty level of Mega's reorganization, as aforementioned, Mega's management believes that there are substantial doubts with respect to the continued existence of Mega as a going concern. Mega's financial statements do not include adjustments regarding the values of assets and liabilities and their classification that may be required if Mega will not be able to continue and operate as a going concern.

      Classification of Mega's loans to short term

      Following the filing of the petition with the court for creditors arrangement and in view of the condition precedent in the agreements with banks under which such petition filed with the court puts the loans for immediate repayment, Mega classified as of June 30, 2015 all of the long term loans into current liabilities.

      Onetime expenses in the reporting period included in the results of the supermarkets segment:   

      a.       Onetime expenses of NIS 101 million relating to Mega's reorganization:

      1.      A provision of NIS 37 million in respect of branches designated for closure according to Mega's estimate concerning the necessary expenses for meeting the commitments contained in the rental agreements of the branches until their closure.

      2.       A provision of NIS 23 million for the payment of grants and early notice payments to dismissed employees.

      3.      A provision of NIS 41 million for impairment of 32 branches designated for closure.

      b.      Impairment of fixed assets

      A provision of NIS 10 million for impairment of branches Mega intends to continue operating in which the recoverable amount was lower than the carrying cost.

      c.       Impairment of intangible assets

      A goodwill amortization of NIS 273 million attributed to the supermarkets of Mega and Eden according to examination performed to determine the recoverable amount of the supermarkets segment.

      d.      Some of the amortizations for onerous agreements attributed branches Mega rents from BSRE and a part of the goodwill amortization are eliminated in the segment adjustments in view of the fact that in the consolidated the goodwill attributed to the supermarkets segment is lower than the goodwill recorded in Mega's books.

      Houseware and Textile segment (Naaman)

      a.       As of June 30, 2015, the Company operates 116 stores (of which 11 franchised) according to the following breakdown: Na'aman – 67 stores, Vardinon – 49 stores.

      b.      Goodwill amortization – Naaman

      The Company and Bee Group have goodwill attributed to the purchase of Naaman. Following the exit of Mega from 32 branches and the deterioration of its results, Naaman updated its forecasts for future sales and profit and according to the new forecast goodwill amortization of NIS 60 million was carried out. 

      Real Estate segment (BSRE)

      a.         Change in fair value of investment property

      During the reporting period, the change in fair value of investment property in the real estate segment included a net impairment of NIS 64.7 million. The valuations as of June 30, 2015, reflect possible changes as a result of the creditors' arrangement of Mega and its announcement regarding its exit from branches. The total impairment in relation to the assets rented to Mega was mainly due to the increase of the discount interest rate during the agreement period by 1.5% compared to the discount rate used in previous valuations and from possible revision of cash flows originating from the assets that Mega may request to be released from the related rental agreements. In addition, the impairment during the reporting period includes the effect of the change in the income flows resulting from the decline of the CPI and since the Company's rental agreements are CPI linked, while on the other hand, there are adjustments of the value of other property rights.

      In the segment adjustments to the consolidated, the effects of the change in fair value of assets used by the group companies are eliminated.

      b.         Wholesale market complex

      Sale agreements with apartment purchasers

      On or about the date of issuing the report, the residence company entered into commitment for 713 sale agreements with a scope of NIS 1,871 million (including VAT) and received advances of NIS 1,260 million (including VAT).

("Eden"), by the minority shareholders (49%) in Eden. The plaintiffs allege that the Company and Mega took actions to exploit them as minority shareholders in Eden, in connection with the filing of the petition for stay of proceedings of Eden by Mega and Eden. The plaintiffs allege that the Company breached the agreement signed with them at the time the Company invested in Eden (the investment was transferred later on to Mega), in order to force the sale of their holdings in Eden in a lower price than the market value.

      The plaintiffs seek the court to order the Company to purchase their holdings in Eden at their market value (as claimed by them), or at the value that was on the date of the Company's original investment in Eden. The Company rejects the two valuations claimed by the plaintiffs.

If the Company reaches the conclusion that as a result of the above there is a loss of control, the Company shall record its investment in Mega at equity method and shall cease to consolidate its results. In addition, some of the effects of discontinuing the consolidation is to present the assets used by Mega and held by BSRE at fair value. The difference between the book value and fair value of those assets, net of tax component shall be charged directly to equity amounting to approximately NIS 650-750 million NIS and the Company's shareholder part would amount to about NIS 400-450 million, respectively.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company had  no indications of impairment in value of the investment in Dor Alon. Nevertheless, in view of putting up the holdings in Dor Alon for sale after the balance sheet date while taking into consideration the market value of Dor Alon and the proposals that may be received from potential purchasers, then as far as the value of these proposals shall be lower than the carrying amount or if Dor Alon shall be actually realized at a value lower than the carrying amount, the Company shall record a loss in respect of its holdings, which could be significant, as aforesaid.
