Caltex and Woolworths extend long term partnership

Caltex Australia (ASX:CTX) today announces that it has entered into a new fuel supply agreement with Woolworths (ASX:WOW), and expanded its partnership with Woolworths to include the co- creation of a market-leading convenience offering as well as long term wholesale grocery supply, loyalty and redemption arrangements.

Key points

  • Caltex and Woolworths have entered into a new 15 year fuel supply agreement.
  • Caltex and Woolworths have agreed to co-create a market-leading convenience retail offering, across approximately 250 Caltex retail sites. The sites will be co-branded with  for the convenience retail offering.
  • Caltex and Woolworths have also entered into commercial arrangements covering wholesale grocery product supply, redemption and Caltex’s participation in the Woolworths’ Rewards program that will further enhance Caltex’s convenience offering.
  • Partnership represents a significant milestone in the transformation of Caltex, building on our prior efforts on Convenience Retail, and will both accelerate and strengthen our Freedom of Convenience Strategy.
  • The fuel supply agreements and commercial arrangements are not subject to any conditions precedent or regulatory approvals.
  • Steps taken to replace the earnings expected to be lost, had Woolworths sold its fuel business, will now enable Caltex to deliver earnings growth given retention of fuel supply agreement and other commercial arrangements announced today.

Continuing a strong relationship in wholesale fuel supply

Caltex is pleased to announce that it has signed a new long term wholesale fuel supply agreement with Woolworths, ensuring the safe and reliable supply of high quality fuels to Woolworths for the next 15 years. In consideration of Woolworths entering into the new wholesale fuel supply agreement, Caltex will make a one-off payment of approximately $50 million in July 2018. The new fuel supply agreement is on terms that represent a $80 million reduction in annual EBIT to Caltex, relative to the current contract.
This new agreement will importantly allow Caltex to continue to realise benefits from its integrated supply chain, including the value created by sourcing volumes through its Ampol Singapore business, higher utilisation levels of infrastructure and distribution networks, and by serving customers through the largest site network in Australia. The new fuel supply agreement is stapled to the Woolworths’ sites, regardless of ownership, providing certainty of supply for Caltex. This maintains Caltex’s position as the leading provider of transport fuel in Australia, and enables Ampol to continue its growth as a major regional fuel supplier.

Announcing the new convenience offering at Caltex’s Petrol & Convenience sites

Under the new convenience agreement, Caltex and Woolworths will co-create and rollout a co-branded market-leading convenience offering under the  banner across up to 250 Caltex sites, with 50 sites rolled out within the first two years. By partnering with Woolworths, Caltex will draw on the scale and capabilities of the Woolworths’ fresh food business, while also capitalising on the success to date of its Foodary rollout.

All stores will continue to be operated by Caltex as part of the Caltex network, with Caltex paying Woolworths a royalty for use of the  banner.

Caltex has already seen positive early results from its own Foodary convenience store concept which has confirmed the merits of the decision to develop a convenience retail offering, and has provided learnings integral to the development of the convenience agreement with Woolworths. Prioritising development of this new convenience offering with Woolworths is expected to accelerate and strengthen Caltex’s Freedom of Convenience strategy. The Foodary concept will continue to play an important role across Caltex’s broader network.

Caltex to leverage Woolworths’ wholesale grocery supply, Woolworths’ Rewards and redemption offerings

Caltex and Woolworths have also entered into a range of agreements in relation to wholesale grocery supply, Caltex’s participation in the Woolworths Rewards program as a core partner, and an expanded redemption program. These agreements will create a platform to accelerate growth of Caltex’s convenience retail business:

  • The wholesale grocery supply agreement will allow Caltex to source products through Woolworths’ supply chain providing benefits to Caltex’s network.
  • Caltex will become a core Petrol and Convenience (P&C) business partner in the Woolworths Rewards program, entitling eligible customers to earn and redeem Woolworths Rewards points on eligible fuel and in-store merchandise purchases.
  • The existing redemption network will be expanded from 104 sites to 229 sites with these sites offering the Woolworths’ fuel discount redemption under similar terms to current stores.

Caltex continues to demonstrate capital discipline, and delivers earnings growth for shareholders

In December 2016, Woolworths announced the sale of its fuel network to another party. While naturally disappointed that the long standing fuel alliance between Woolworths and Caltex was expected to come to an end, Caltex believed it was important to exercise financial discipline in pursuing growth.

Caltex pursued a number of other, lower cost growth opportunities through M&A (Gull NZ, Milemaker, Seaoil) and cost savings (Quantum Leap, debt refinancing). These growth initiatives are now additive to the benefits to be delivered through the new fuel supply and retail agreements with Woolworths, and are expected to deliver strong earnings growth for Caltex.

Caltex MD and CEO, Julian Segal said “The alliance with Woolworths will allow Caltex to provide a very competitive convenience retail offering to its customers, along with an expanded redemption and new loyalty offering.

It represents a significant milestone in the transformation of Caltex. Not only do these agreements secure the long-term supply of quality fuel to the Woolworths sites, but they accelerate our Freedom of Convenience Strategy and confirm Convenience Retail as a core business alongside Fuels & Infrastructure.

Caltex forecasts its retail commercial arrangements with Woolworths should deliver results towards the top end of the range previously communicated to the market in February ($120 million to $150 million EBIT uplift in 5 years), with greater execution certainty, and capex that is broadly consistent with prior expectations. Capex guidance for 2018 will be updated at the 1H 2018 result on 28 August 2018.

Kohl’s Will Host Up to 10 Aldi Grocery Stores

If you want to understand the kind of thinking fueling Kohl’s (KSS, +0.50%) return to form of late, look no further than its newly announced partnership with discount grocer Aldi.

The company, which on Thursday reported its largest quarterly comparable sales gain since 2001, is planning to free up space at five to ten of the hundreds of stores it is making smaller to the German food retailer. Kohl’s has been shrinking, but not closing, hundreds of its stores to make them easier to manage, navigate, and maintain. The company said it would look for partners to take up the freed space. (Macy’s and Sears have made similar moves but on a more modest scale.)

Aldi, a well established grocer offering very low prices, is now facing new competition from fellow Germany low-price grocer Lidl, which arrived on American shores last year in an aggressive launch, and this partnership with Kohl’s will allow it to update its store fleet. As for Kohl’s, having a food store co-locate (the stores will be separate and customers won’t really notice they share the same box), is likely to bring a new customer to those locations and potentially help it diversity its clientele. Specifically, the Aldi stores could help Kohl’s siphon off some business from Target (TGT, +1.20%), which is working on renewing its food business and with which Kohl’s occupies many strip malls.

Woolworths and Caltex have decided to work together

Woolworths has shrugged off a failed deal with BP to ink a new long term alliance with Caltex as the supermarket chain continues to look at either floating its petrol business or selling it off.

The four cents a litre discount deal for Woolworths shoppers will be expanded to 125 Caltex sites, adding to the 638 Woolworths rewards redemption sites.

Under the 15-year supply deal, Caltex will make a one-off payment to Wooolworths of $50 million. The new fuel supply agreement is on terms that represent a $80 million reduction in annual earnings to Caltex compared to the old contract.

Last month BP Australia dropped plans to buy petrol stations from Woolworths for $1.8 billion after the competition watchdog, the ACCC, decided to oppose the proposed sale on the grounds that it could lift prices at the bowser.

Today Woolworths announced a new strategic alliance and 15-year wholesale fuel supply agreement with Caltex but says it will continue to pursue an initial public offering or sale of the petrol station business.

The deal includes an agreement by Caltex and Woolworths to co-create a convenience retail offering, across 250 Caltex retail sites. The sites will be co-branded.

“While we were disappointed with the termination of the BP agreement, we believe the customer benefits of our alliance with Caltex, combined with a new fuel supply agreement will allow us to deliver a compelling outcome for both our customers and our shareholders,” says Brad Banducci, the CEO of Woolworths.

“Customers will have access to an extended redemption and loyalty network and an exciting new convenience food format.

“The Woolworths Petrol business is in a good position to pursue its own growth agenda supported by a highly competitive fuel supply agreement and a strengthened management team, all underpinned by solid links to the Woolworths food business.”

Woolworths expects the pre-tax benefit from the deal to exceed $80 million a year.
