Sears Holdings Corporation Announces Plan To Pursue A Partial Spin-Off Of Its Interest In Sears Canada Inc.

Holdings expects to continue to include Sears Canada as a consolidated subsidiary in Holdings' Consolidated Financial Statements following the spin-off. Holdings has the right not to complete the spin-off if, at any time, Holdings' board of directors determines, in its sole discretion, that the spin-off is not in the best interests of Holdings or its stockholders or is otherwise not advisable.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain material presented herein includes forward-looking statements intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the form, terms and timing of any transaction to spin-off any portion of Holdings interest in Sears Canada (the "companies"). Whenever used, words such as "will," "expect," "expectation," "intend," "believe," "plan" and other terms of similar meaning are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results, events, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, events, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.  Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including risks and uncertainties relating to any spin-off of Holdings' interest in Sears Canada, such as the timing and certainty of securities filings to effect the spin-off and the completion of that transaction, the operational and financial profile of Holdings or any of its businesses after giving effect to the spin-off, the ability of the companies to operate following the spin-off, and other factors to be set forth in any prospectus that will be contained in a  registration statement filed with the SEC and the CSA by Sears Canada with respect to the spin-off.  There can be no assurance as to the timing of the contemplated spin-off, whether it will ultimately be structured as a spin-off, or whether it will be completed. A detailed description of other risks relating to Holdings are set forth in our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 28, 2012 and our other filings with the SEC.  We intend the forward-looking statements to speak only as of the time made and, except as required by law, do not undertake to update or revise them as more information becomes available.

This release and the description of the proposed spin-off contained herein do not constitute an offer of any securities for sale.
