Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Inc. (NASDAQ: PEET) today announced its second quarter results for the fiscal period ended July 1, 2012, which included 13 weeks.

In this release, the Company:

• Reports diluted earnings per share of $0.30

• Reports net revenue growth of 5%

Consolidated Financial and Operating Summary

For the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2012, net revenue increased 5% to $95.4 million from $90.6 million for the corresponding period of fiscal 2011. Diluted earnings per share was $0.30, compared to $0.38 for the corresponding period of fiscal 2011.

Retail net revenue increased 4% to $55.4 million for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2012, from $53.4 million for the corresponding period last year. The increase was driven by a higher average transaction and an $874,000 sales tax refund related to resolution of a sales tax computation interpretation with the taxing authorities. The Company did not open any stores in the quarter and ended the quarter with 197 stores.

Specialty net revenue increased 7% to $40.0 million for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2012, compared to $37.3 million for the corresponding period last year. Within specialty, grocery sales were up 5% compared to the corresponding period last year, foodservice and office sales grew 15%, and home delivery sales grew 3%. Grocery revenue growth was impacted by an increase in competitive pricing pressure during the period.

Cost of sales and related occupancy expenses increased as a percent of total net revenue to 50.4% for the quarter, compared to 49.2% for the corresponding period last year. The increase was caused by higher green coffee costs, which were 16% higher per pound than the same quarter last year. This increase was partially offset by price increases across all channels and lower shipping expenses.

Operating expenses were 31.2% of net revenue, compared to 31.1% for the corresponding period last year. A favorable mix shift towards the specialty business and lower legal fees were substantially offset by higher healthcare costs, payment card processing fees, and investments in overhead expenses.
