Re:  Kimco SVU Interests
 
Ladies and Gentlemen:
 
Reference is made to that certain (i) Tender Offer Agreement, dated as of January 10, 2013 (the “Tender Offer Agreement”) by and between Symphony Investors LLC (“Symphony”), Supervalu Inc. (the “Company”) and Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. and (ii) Amended and Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement of Symphony, dated as of the date hereof (the “LLC Agreement”), of Symphony, to which Kimvue Acquisition, LLC (“Kimco”)  is a party as a member of Symphony.  Capitalized terms used herein have the meaning given to them in the LLC Agreement unless otherwise defined.
 
Pursuant to Section 3.9(f) of the LLC Agreement, Kimco hereby requests that the Management Board cause Symphony to promptly distribute Kimco’s Ownership Percentage of the SVU Interests to Kimco (the SVU Interests so distributed to Kimco, and so long as they are held by Kimco or any of its Affiliates, the “Kimco SVU Interests,” and such distribution, the “Kimco Distribution”) in redemption of Kimco’s Units.  Symphony and Kimco agree to cooperate with each other to complete the Kimco Distribution as soon as practicable.  Upon completion of the Kimco Distribution, Kimco will no longer be a holder of Units or a Member of the Company.
 
Kimco hereby agrees, from the time of the completion of the Kimco Distribution until the expiration of the Transfer Restriction Period, (1) to cause the Kimco SVU Interests to be voted as instructed by the Management Board (so long as the Management Board is causing the SVU Interests held or formerly held by the Company over which it has the power to vote to be voted in accordance with such instructions and such instructions, to the extent relating to Kimco's obligations under Section 1.04(g) of the Tender Offer Agreement, comply with the voting requirements of Section 1.04(g) of the Tender Offer Agreement as in effect as of the date hereof), (2) to the extent permitted, to cause the Kimco SVU Interests to be included in any sale or Transfer being effected by the Management Board and/or the Company pursuant to Section 3.9(b) or 3.9(c) of the LLC Agreement as in effect as of the date hereof (provided, however, that, for purposes of Section 3.9(c) of the LLC Agreement, in calculating whether a sale has been previously consented to in writing by the Requisite Members, the holder of the Kimco SVU Interests shall be deemed to be holding its proportionate share of the outstanding Units (with such proportion determined based on the number of SVU Interests it holds compared to the number held by Symphony and other holders with rights under Section 3.9(f) of the LLC Agreement), and (3) not to Transfer Kimco SVU Interests (other than in accordance with clause (2) above or to Affiliates of Kimco who shall (x) enter into an agreement with Symphony, in a form satisfactory to the Management Board and the Company in their reasonable discretion, setting forth each of the rights and obligations set forth herein mutatis mutandis and (y) agree with the Company in writing to comply with the applicable provisions of Sections 1.04(g), 2.05 (to the extent Kimco participates in a registration under the Tender Offer Agreement that is underwritten), 2.09 and 2.10.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Kimco hereby makes to Symphony each of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 4.12 of the Tender Offer Agreement mutatis mutandis.  If requested by Symphony, Kimco hereby agrees to reasonably cooperate with Symphony in connection with Symphony’s obligations under Section 2.10(f) of the Tender Offer Agreement, including by providing such representations, warranties and certificates as may be reasonably requested by Symphony in connection therewith.
 
Symphony and Kimco acknowledge that the Kimco SVU Interests constitute Registrable Securities for purposes of the Tender Offer Agreement.  Symphony hereby assigns to Kimco, effective upon the Kimco Distribution, Symphony’s rights under the Tender Offer Agreement to include such Registrable Securities in any Demand Registration requested by Symphony, any Short-Form Registration, any shelf takedown or any Piggyback Registration and all related rights and obligations (including indemnification rights and obligations).  In the event Kimco shall provide Symphony with written notice (a "Shelf Registration Notice") of its desire to cause the Company to file a Shelf Registration Statement in accordance with Section 2.01(c) of the Tender Offer Agreement, Symphony shall promptly request that the Company file a Shelf Registration Statement in accordance with Section 2.01(c) of the Tender Offer Agreement, but only if (x) Symphony has the right at the time of the receipt of the Shelf Registration Notice to cause the Company to file a Shelf Registration Statement in accordance with Section 2.01(c) of the Tender Offer Agreement and (y) there is then no unexpired Shelf Registration Statement then in effect.  For the avoidance of doubt, nothing contained in this paragraph shall limit or impair the right of Symphony to otherwise request that the Company file a Shelf Registration Statement in accordance with Section 2.01(c) of the Tender Offer Agreement.   Promptly after making any request to the Company for a Demand Registration, Short-Form Registration or any shelf takedown or receiving any notice from the Company of a Piggyback Registration, Symphony shall notify Kimco in writing of such request or Piggyback Registration so that Kimco can include its Registrable Securities in such Demand Registration, Short-Form Registration, shelf takedown, or Piggyback Registration.  Symphony and Kimco shall cooperate and coordinate in good faith with respect to the inclusion of Registrable Securities in connection with any Demand Registration, Short-Form Registration, any shelf takedown or any Piggyback Registration in respect of which Kimco wishes to include Registrable Securities.  Symphony and Kimco agree that in the event that any Demand Registration, Piggyback Registration or shelf take-down involves an underwritten offering and the number of Registrable Securities sought to be included by Symphony and all other holders of Registrable Securities exceeds the number of Registrable Securities that can be sold in such offering, Kimco shall be permitted to include its pro rata share of the Registrable Securities that can be sold in such offering (with such pro rata share determined on the basis of the number of Registrable Securities then held by Kimco and its Affiliates as compared to the number of Registrable Securities held by others (including their Affiliates) seeking to include Registrable Securities in such offering).  Symphony shall not enter into any agreement inconsistent with the foregoing.

If in connection with a proposed Transfer by Kimco of any Kimco SVU Interests the Company requests an opinion of counsel in accordance with Section 2.10(f) of the Tender Offer Agreement, Kimco shall not effect such Transfer, other than pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in a manner that would cause Symphony, in its reasonable discretion, to be unable to provide the Company with an opinion of counsel in accordance with Section 2.10(f) of the Tender Offer Agreement relating to such Transfer; provided that if reputable a U.S. counsel to Kimco is willing to provide the Company with an opinion in accordance with Section 2.10(f) of the Tender Offer Agreement relating to a Transfer of Kimco SVU Interests, Symphony shall “select” (for purposes of Section 2.10(f) of the Tender Offer Agreement) such counsel to provide such opinion to the Company relating to such Transfer, and if such opinion is reasonably acceptable to the Company and is provided to the Company by such counsel in connection with such Transfer, the restriction set forth in this sentence shall not apply to such Transfer of Kimco SVU Interests.
