Sonic Reports 25% Increase In Fourth Quarter Earnings

For fiscal 2012, net income totaled $36.1 million or $0.60 per diluted share compared with net income of $32.6 million or $0.53 per diluted share, on an adjusted basis for the same period in 2011.

The following non-GAAP adjustments are intended to supplement the presentation of the company's financial results in accordance with GAAP. The company believes that the presentation of these items provides useful information to investors and management regarding the underlying business trends and the performance of the company's ongoing operations and is helpful for period-to-period and company-to-company comparisons, which management believes will assist investors in analyzing the financial results of the company and predicting future performance.
