AMCON Distributing Company (“AMCON”) (NYSE AMEX:DIT), an Omaha, Nebraska based consumer products company is pleased to announce fully diluted earnings per share of $3.67 for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2010.

“We were able to post another solid quarter in both of our business segments,” said Christopher H.
