Part III — Narrative


State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


Rite Aid Corporation (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 2, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date for the reasons further described below.


As previously disclosed by the Company, including in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 3, 2023, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on July 11, 2023, the Company has been engaged in reviewing and continues to review strategic alternatives to recapitalize, refinance or otherwise optimize its capital structure (the “Ongoing Review”), which may ultimately result in the Company pursuing one or more significant corporate transactions or other remedial measures. As part of the preparation of the Form 10-Q, the Company is conducting an impairment charge analysis, which, together with the processes involved in the Ongoing Review, require significant resources from the Company's financial, accounting and administrative personnel. As a result, the Company is unable to complete and file the Form 10-Q by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort and expense.


The Company is working diligently to complete its financial statements and related disclosures and anticipates that the Form 10-Q will be filed on or before October 17, 2023, as permitted by Rule 12b-25 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


Part IV — Other Information


(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification.


  Matthew C. Schroeder   (717) 761-2633
  (Name)   (Telephone Number)



Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).


x  Yes   No


(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?   Yes    No


If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.





When the Company completes the preparation of the 10-Q, including the ongoing impairment charge analysis, discussed in Part III above, the Company expects to report a significant increase in net loss for the quarter ended September 2, 2023, as compared to the corresponding quarter ended August 27, 2022. Such increase would result in part from the increase in impairment charges, litigation charges and higher professional expenses. Additionally, the Company expects to also report a significant increase in its outstanding debt for the quarter ended September 2, 2023, as compared to the corresponding quarter ended August 27, 2022.
