Spartan Stores Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: SPTN

The Company believes that cash flow from operations and the approximately $155.0 million of availability under its revolving credit facility will be sufficient to fund its operations and strategic growth initiatives for fiscal 2013.


Mr. Eidson continued, “While the economic environment in our markets remains challenging, we are pleased with the improvement in our comparable store sales trend, the solid execution of our operating plan and our ability to provide the brands, products and services that best deliver value to our consumer in today’s economy. We are encouraged by the sales performance of our latest Valu Land store and continue to work on opening three to five new Valu Land locations during the second half of fiscal 2013. As we look to the remainder of the year, we continue to expect the pace of the economic recovery to continue, although at a slower rate. We also expect lower inflation-related gains when compared to the prior year for the next couple of quarters. However, we expect the unfavorable impact to be lower in the second and third quarters of fiscal 2013 than we experienced in the first quarter.”

The Company expects that second quarter comparable store sales will be lower when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2013 by 1.0 to 1.5 percent and second quarter earnings from continuing operations will be slightly below the prior year’s results. This expectation reflects the continued economic challenges, lower inflation-related gains and the calendar shift previously mentioned.

For fiscal 2013, the Company expects flat comparable store sales and anticipates that earnings per diluted share from continuing operations for fiscal year 2013 will approximate fiscal year 2012, excluding the 53 rd week last year.

The Company continues to expect capital expenditures for fiscal year 2013 to be in the range of $42.0 million to $44.0 million, with depreciation and amortization in the range of $39.0 million to $40.0 million. Following the amendment to the Company’s credit facility, the Company now expects total interest expense to approximate $13.0 to $14.0 million.
