Original announcement: Impairment of intangible and other assets

Metcash announced that its financial statements for the half year ended 31 October 2019 will recognise a $237.4m (post tax) impairment to goodwill and other assets in the Food pillar. The review has taken into account the information contained in Company's ASX release concerning 7-Eleven's advice that it will not be renewing the current supply agreement with Company following its conclusion on 12 August 2020. This advice is expected to result in the loss of $15m EBIT (annualised) in the Food pillar, after adjusting for mitigating costs savings. The impairment is non-cash in nature, has no impact on the Company's debt facilities or compliance with banking covenants.
