Under terms of the agreement, Nash Finch will operate three distribution centers, in Pensacola FL, Junction City KS, and San Antonio TX, respectively, each of which services military commissaries and exchanges.

Based on trailing 12-month financial information provided by GSC, for the period ending October 2008, the revenue contribution to GSC from these three facilities was approximately $740 million. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2009, subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions.
