Dollar General Corporation Reports Strong Second Quarter Results

Adjusted net income is defined as net income excluding specifically identified expenses. Items excluded from the 2012 second quarter and 26-week period consist of: accelerated equity-based compensation and other expenses relating to secondary offerings of the Company’s stock, an adjustment for the settlement of interest rate swaps and a loss on the repurchase of long-term obligations. The 2012 26-week period also excludes the write-off of capitalized debt costs resulting from the amendment of the Company’s revolving credit facility. A net loss on the repurchase of debt was excluded from the 2011 quarter and, additionally, expenses related to certain litigation settlements were excluded from the 2011 26-week period. The income tax effect of adjustments is also excluded from all periods. Adjusted diluted EPS is defined as adjusted net income per diluted share.

Reconciliations of all of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are provided in the accompanying schedules. In addition, for reference, the schedules also include calculations of SG&A and operating profit, as adjusted to exclude certain expenses. In addition to historical results, guidance for fiscal 2012 is based on comparable adjustments.

The Company believes that providing comparisons to net income and diluted earnings per share, adjusted for the items shown in the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information to the reader in assessing the Company’s operating performance. The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information about the calculation of the senior secured incurrence test, a material financial ratio in the Company’s credit agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is a material component of that ratio.

The non-GAAP measures discussed above are not measures of financial performance or condition, liquidity or profitability in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, diluted earnings per share, operating income, cash flows from operations or any other performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments, debt service requirements and replacement of fixed assets. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company’s financial results as reported under GAAP.
