We analyze the experimental core-level photoemission and x-ray absorption (XA) spectra pf $NaCuO_2$ in terms of an Anderson-impurity Hamiltonian including the band-structure effects of the oxygen sublattice and show that the XA results unambiguously indicate a negative value of the charge transfer energy \Delta . We also perform mean-field calculations for the electronic structure for the edge-shared one-dimensional $CuO_2$ lattice of $NaCuO_2$ within the multiband Hubbard Hamiltonian and show that the origin of the insulating nature lies in band-structure rather than correlation effects, and that the gap has a $pd-p$ character.
