Top grocery retailer Magnit on Monday raised its full-year 2012 sales guidance to 30-32 percent from 30 percent and said growth was expected to slow down to 25-27 percent next year.

Magnit, with more than 5,700 stores, also said its capital expenditure program would total $1.6 to $1.7 billion this year and $1.6 to $1.8 billion in 2013.

This year's EBITDA margin is seen at 9.0-9.5 percent, the company said in a statement.

The company said in July it would keep expanding aggressively next year, with preliminary capex guidance at $1.8 to $2.0 billion.
