Sendas Distribuidora: The Costco Of Brazil

May 29, 2024
Sendas Distribuidora (NYSE:ASAI) or Assai is the second-largest grocery player in Brazil focused on the cash and carry segment of groceries. Assai executed a transaction with its former parent company GPA in 2021 to acquire 70 hypermarkets to convert into Assai stores. This transaction promised growth, which has materialized as of 2024.
