  13. Capital: Needs and Sources • Kroger finances capital investments. • Kroger Goals: • Increase EPS 16-18% through sales growth, margin improvements, and deleveraging. • Need other sources of capital. • Merger creates more demand and more debt, therefore less available capital

  14. Concerns • SICS does not have a solid understanding of inventory position. • Idle trucks. • Kroger sells ice cream to itself. • Communication.
