NEW YORK, March 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Levi & Korsinsky notifies investors of Safeway Inc.

Under the terms of the transaction, Safeway shareholders will receive value estimated at $40.00 per share for each share of Safeway they own including $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:HAWK). The claims concern whether the Safeway Board breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Cerberus is underpaying for Safeway shares. In particular, at least one analyst set a price target for Safeway stock at $46.00 per share.
