Roundy’s, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Year-to-Date Financial Results

Net sales were $1,935.1 million for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012, an increase of $38.7 million, or 2.0% from $1,896.4 million for the twenty-six weeks ended July 2, 2011. The increase primarily reflects the impact of new stores, partially offset by a 2.7% decrease in same-store sales. The same-store sales decrease was due to a 2.0% decrease in the number of customer transactions and 0.7% decrease in the average transaction size. The Company’s same-store sales were negatively impacted by the effect of competitive store openings during the last twelve months as well as a more challenging economic and competitive environment. Same-store sales were also affected by calendar shifts, including the New Year’s holiday, which is traditionally a slow sales day and fell in the first quarter of 2012 and the July 4 th holiday, which shifted more sales into the third quarter this year.

For the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012 net income was $21.2 million, or $0.51 diluted earnings per common share, compared to $26.5 million, or $0.87 diluted earnings per common share, for the twenty-six weeks ended July 2, 2011. Adjusted net income for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012 was $29.5 million, or $0.71 diluted earnings per common share, compared with $26.5 million, or $0.87 diluted earnings per common share for the twenty-six weeks ended July 2, 2011. Adjusted net income for the current year-to-date period excludes an $8.4 million after-tax charge, or $0.20 per diluted common share, for the early extinguishment of debt and one-time IPO expenses that occurred during the first quarter 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA for the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011 was $109.0 million and $116.1 million, respectively.
