NEW YORK - Netherlands-based grocery store operator Royal Ahold NV said Wednesday it agreed to sell distributor U.S. Foodservice to a consortium of private equity firms for $7.1 billion.

The Amsterdam-based company said the transaction with Clayton, Dubilier & Rice Fund VII LP and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. is expected to close in the second half of 2007, pending customary conditions, including antitrust clearance and shareholder approval.

Ahold’s board is asking shareholders to approve the sale at a special meeting scheduled for June 19.
