Release of RONA's 2012 Second Quarter Financial Results

BOUCHERVILLE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2012) - On Wednesday August 8, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. (EDT), RONA (TSX:RON)(TSX:RON.PR.A) will announce its 2012 second quarter financial results during a conference call for the financial community.

The financial results will be made public in a press release that will be issued on the newswire prior to the conference call. The Press Release and the Management Discussion & Analysis will be posted on the RONA website at the address

Please note that due to the prominent role of the Board of Directors with respect to the unsolicited, non-binding acquisition proposal that RONA has received from U.S.-based Lowe's Companies Inc. ("Lowe's"), RONA executives will not discuss this proposal during the conference call. They will deal only with the analysis of the quarterly results being released. Call participants are therefore kindly requested to refrain from asking questions concerning the Lowe's proposal.

For this reason and on an exceptional basis, the RONA executive team will not be granting interviews to the media as part of the disclosure of the company's quarterly results.
