Golden Enterprises Announces Quarterly Results

Golden Enterprises, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: GLDC) Board of Directors today declared a quarterly dividend of $.03125 per share payable April 27, 2011 to stockholders of record on April 15, 2011.

Golden Enterprises, Inc.’s basic and diluted income per share for the fourteen weeks ended March 4, 2011 were $.03 compared to $.08 for the thirteen weeks ended February 26, 2010. Last year’s basic and diluted income per share were higher in part due to a one-time sale of company assets which accounted for $.01 of the income per share amount.

Net sales increased 9% for the current quarter, and were $34,085,864 versus $31,348,255 for the same period last year. This year’s third quarter included fourteen weeks of snack food sales and costs compared to the normal thirteen weeks last year. Without the extra week, net sales would have been up 2%. The increase in sales was due primarily to new product offerings and the company’s expansion into new geographic markets.

For the forty weeks ended March 4, 2011, basic and diluted income per share were $.17 compared to $.23 for the thirty-nine weeks ended February 26, 2010. Total net sales were $96,952,341 this year compared to $95,392,485 last year, an increase of 2%.

Despite rising energy and commodity costs, we remain committed to providing quality snacks for our consumers at a competitive price throughout our marketing area. The company has undertaken the implementation of a new ERP software system that will provide greater efficiencies by reducing manual processes and enable better monitoring of all manufacturing and delivery costs.

The following is a summary of net sales and income information for the fourteen and forty weeks ended March 4, 2011 and the thirteen weeks and thirty-nine weeks ended February 26, 2010.
