Chief executive officer John Danks heads up a workforce of approximately 500 employees. Danks Holdings is a wholly owned subsidiary of WOOLWORTHS LTD. Danks Holdings traded as a publicly-listed company until it was acquired in an off-market takeover in August 2009. The takeover offer was made via a joint venture partnership between Woolworths (66.7%) and US home improvement company Lowes Companies Inc. (33.3%). Woolworths offer of $13.50 per Danks share represented a 65% premium on Danks closing share price of $8.20. Danks shareholders received a final dividend of 53 cents per share in September 2009. All Danks personnel and management were retained following the completion of the deal. The transaction represents Woolworths first foray into the Australian hardware sector.

Commentary
Woolies' ladder to growth
Friday, 27 November 2009 Robert Gottliebsen Woolworths' entry into big box non-food retailing is normally characterised as a looming battle with Bunnings. But it is much more than that. Woolworths is modelling its big box stores on Lowes in the US, which means that it will be tackling Harvey Norman and many others in furniture and appliances as well as the carpet retailers. That means we are looking a much fiercer and wider war than a normal one-on-one tussle. This is one of the revelations that is clear in our KGB Interrogation of Mitre 10 CEO Mark Burrows. If you are a Woolworths shareholder you will cross your fingers after reading the interrogation and hope that Woolworths has made the right call. In theory, Mitre 10 was the logical opponent for Bunnings in big box hardware retailing. Mitre 10 tried to launch big box stores but found that the big box system did not work along side its smaller Mitre 10 stores. It is now disposing of its big box centres. Again in theory, Mitre 10 should also have merged with the Danks wholesale and a small retailer hardware chain, but the traditional rivalry and the price Woolworths paid for Danks meant that it did not happen. The Burrows Interrogation alerts us to the fact that it is not easy to manage small hardware retailers and the big box format at the same time. Woolworths will need to be a lot cleverer than Mitre 10. Meanwhile, Mitre 10 it trying to woo small retailers from the Danks chain into the Mitre 10 orbit pointing out that the small stores will be supplied by Woolworths as it runs large stores against them. Burrows believes that we are seeing a re-run of the old service station boom of the 1950's and 1960's where it seemed that almost every corner in our major cities was bought by oil companies to establish petrol selling stations. Most of the stations were uneconomic and had to be shut down. It was clear from the interrogation that this is a war that will be decided on service to the customer and who has the best and lowest cost logistics and stock management systems. Mitre 10, with its smaller stores, will need to do a lot of work in this area. Woolworths has always had a lead over Coles in logistics and stock management and Bunnings will need to make sure that its systems are as good if not better than the Lowes systems that Woolworths will embrace.

Woolies' renovation realisation


Wednesday, 11 November 2009 Stephen Bartholomeusz It wouldnt have been a show stopper had the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission opposed the bid by Woolworths and Lowes of the US for Danks Holdings. However, it would have been a setback that delayed and complicated their planned assault on Bunnings stranglehold on the big box hardware sector. Thus the commissions decision to allow the bid to proceed, after obtaining undertakings from Woolworths to protect Danks independent hardware retailing customers from the conflict of interest Woolworths and Lowes will have as both their wholesaler and retail competitor, is a positive one for the joint venture. The acquisition of Danks was a clever short cut to achieve what would otherwise have taken a lot more capital than the $88 million outlaid for the agreed bid and a lot of time the creation of a national hardware supply chain. Danks already supplies nearly 1500 stores, including 500 member stores operating under the Home Timber and Hardware and Thrifty-Link banners. With Woolworths and Lowes planning to have their first store open by late 2011, an inability to acquire Danks would almost inevitably have meant delaying the roll-out of the stores while the supply chain was designed and built. The price of reassuring the ACCC that the joint venture wont have an anti-competitive impact on the independents now supplied by Danks wasnt high. Woolworths volunteered, and the ACCC accepted, a legally enforceable commitment that it wouldnt discriminate on price and terms between the joint venture stores and any of Danks independents in competition with them. Nor would it force retailers to take particular stock or particular quantities of stock and it has agreed to allow its member stores to terminate their membership agreements and move to an alternate wholesaler, presumably the Mitre 10 cooperative, if they wish. Having cleared the ACCC obstacle the partners can now go ahead with their plan to roll-out 150 10,000-plus square metre stores over the next five years. They have secured more than a dozen sites and are in advanced negotiations over a further 15 or so, which would give them an initial platform of around 30 stores. Bunnings already has 180 big box stores, 57 smaller sites and 23 trade centres, has another seven or eight new stores under construction and plans to add between 10 and 14 new stores each year. A delay in the Woolworths/Lowes roll-out would have been a fillip for Bunnings as it would have given it more time to buttress what is already a formidably strong position. Not only has it a very large and established national store network already which is located in the best sites because until Woolworths decided to expand into the sector there was minimal competition for its preferred locations but Bunnings is also already expanding its range in anticipation that Lowes will introduce elements of its US format to this market. Hence the recent addition of kitchen appliances to the Bunnings offering. Even with the Danks acquisition to accelerate its roll-out and provide an existing base of retailers and hardware earnings, it will be some years before Woolworths and Lowes could hope to have a competitive impact on Bunnings, given the time it takes to obtain development approvals and then build sales in a new store. The joint venture is, at least, now on its way.

A win for Wesfarmers


Friday, 23 October 2009 Stephen Bartholomeusz The sharp spike in Wesfarmers share price this morning was as good a signal as any as to what the market thinks about the condition of the groups retail businesses and its Coles supermarket business in particular. There is growing confidence that, in the middle of Coles five-year turnaround program, the program is gaining traction and generating momentum. The 7.3 per cent rise in food and liquor sales and comparable store sales growth of 6.1 per cent were described by Wesfarmers itself as a sold first-quarter performance. Given that those numbers are within the ballpark set by Woolworths earlier in the week, thats probably a bit too modest. At this point in its turnaround, comparisons with Woolworths are probably more about Coles potential than its current condition and Coles performance is probably benchmarked against its own history than its high-performing main competitor. However, there is a real sense that Ian McLeod and his team are on track which is providing the market with increasing reassurance that the Coles business is fixable and that McLeods team can fix it. Many of the basic failings of the business have been steadily addressed, clearing the way for a less introspective and more expansionary phase in the five-year program. There are a lot of metrics one could use to measure the impact the Wesfarmers team are having on Coles but one that does stand out is on-shelf availability. If product isnt on the shelves the gaps represent lost sales. Two years ago there were nearly 450 gaps on the shelves. Today the number is closer to 150. Apart from the impact on basket values that says a lot about the improvements McLeod has made to the Coles supply chain and its back-of-store efficiency. The unsexy part of a retail turnaround doesnt immediately generate sales growth but is fundamental to growth in the longer term and the benefits of the intense initial focus on the detail of the business now appears to be translating into extra sales. McLeod is trying to manage a multi-faceted program that isnt just about logistics but also the in-store experience. The presentation of the Coles network is improving, as is its fresh offer and it says that both its staff and customer satisfaction levels are also rising a lead indicator of future sales growth. It is about to embark on the more visible stage of the transformation, with the large-scale rollout of new store formats in a $1 billion a year program that will involve more than 50 stores this year and whose success will ultimately be very significant in establishing the future competitive relativities between Coles and Woolworths. While Coles remains a work-in-progress, albeit one that appears to be progressing well, the star in the Wesfarmers retail portfolio remains its Bunnings hardware chain. While the September quarter of last year against which its current performance is measured might provide a flattering reference point, the 15 per cent sales growth and the high-single digit growth John Gillam is foreshadowing for the full year confirms the view that Bunnings is one of the best retail formats in the country, if not the globe. While Woolworths and its partner Lowes have suffered a hiccup in their attempts to gatecrash Bunnings territory, with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission declining to simply wave through their proposed acquisition of Danks www.company360.com.au | 13 23 33 25 August 2011 DANKS HOLDINGS PTY LIMITED - 25 -

Holdings, Gillam has taken advantage of the financial crisis to get his hands on well-located sites to accelerate his roll-out of new stores. If the ACCC were to block the Danks acquisition, that would be a major setback for Woolworths and Lowes, which would then have to create a national hardware supply chain from scratch, delaying the initial launch of their assault on Bunnings turf and giving Gillam even more time to entrench an already dominant business. However, even if they are cleared by the commission, Bunnings appears relatively unconcerned, with Gillam pointing to the explosive growth in the sector it has expanded 50 per cent in the past eight years and Bunnings own categories expansion and relatively modest share of the total market for the products it stocks to signal a belief that there is room for Woolworths and Lowes to enter without undermining the stellar Bunnings story.

Too soon to hammer Wesfarmers


Monday, 31 August 2009 Stephen Bartholomeusz Wesfarmers has yet to fully recover the value stripped from it by last weeks announcement from retail rival Woolworths that it was entering the hardware sector now dominated by Wesfarmers Bunnings. The markets attitude is curious, given that any material impact from that decision is years into the future. Wesfarmers initially, and instantly, lost about $1.5 billion of market capitalisation after Woolworths announced that it was bidding for hardware distributor, Danks Holdings, and entering a 70:30 joint venture with US group Lowes to roll out a chain of big box format hardware stores. The announcement coincided with Wesfarmers shares trading ex-dividend but, even taking that into account Wesfarmers is still valued about $600 million less today than it was a week ago. Given the time the years it will take for Woolworths offering to have any material impact on Bunnings, the hardware discount attached to the Wesfarmers share price implies a very substantial eventual transfer of value from the incumbent to the aspirant; one measured in billions of tomorrows dollars rather than the $600 million today. Woolworths hopes to open 150 stores over the next five years, with the first scheduled to open in late 2011. So far Woolworths has secured 12 sites and is negotiating another 15. Bunnings itself plans to open another 30 to 40 warehouse stores in the next three years, with 10 already under construction and 20 in the planning and development phase. It generally takes about two years to get through the development approval process, while it also takes another two or three years for large store formats to build sales to optimum levels. In other words, even if Woolworths can acquire 30-plus sites a year to meet its initial target for the network, many of those stores will still be ramping up their sales as we close in on 2020. The acquisition of sites appears to be where analysts believe the greatest risk lies in the Woolworths strategy thats a lot of sites to acquire in a relatively short time, particularly when one considers that it has taken Bunnings a quarter of a century and a couple of big acquisitions to create its network. Bunnings has been opening smaller stores in more densely urbanised locations, suggesting that the availability of largeformat sites in the right catchment areas is starting to dwindle. The analysts appear concerned that, as the late entrant, Woolworths will end up with a network of less-than-optimal sites at a cost of $20 million to $30 million per site. www.company360.com.au | 13 23 33 25 August 2011 DANKS HOLDINGS PTY LIMITED - 26 -

Regardless of how well Woolworths executes its strategy and whether or not it can create a business that is both competitive with Bunnings and delivers Woolworths-type returns Woolworths is a first-rate retailer and competitor the time-lines dont suggest an immediate or early impact of particular consequence to the Wesfarmers group. That is very significant because at this moment Wesfarmers would be vulnerable to an assault on Bunnings, a core profit generator for the group. Those earnings are vital to Wesfarmers as it invests heavily in its Coles food and liquor business and attempts to revive the Kmart brand. This year the Wesfarmers group expects to invest $1.8 billion of new capital in its portfolio of businesses. The Coles turnaround, as Richard Goyder continually says, is a five-year program that started in late 2007. That means it should finish around the second half of 2012, with the peak of the capital expenditure programs occurring some time well before then. In other words, by the time Woolworths has assembled its network of big-box stores and ramped them up the attempt to rehabilitate the Coles brands will, regardless of how successful it has been, be behind Wesfarmers and the group should be in a far stronger and less vulnerable position to defend any of its franchises. Indeed, at that point, having outlaid a lot of capital to take on arguably the worlds most profitable hardware retailer and a very strong retail brand after giving it a 25-year head start, it may be Woolworths that comes under pressure from the market given that the big investments in the attempt to take on Bunnings will lead, by several years at least, the build-up in sales and returns. The market may have been a bit premature and heavy-handed with its markdowns.
