Winmark Corporation Announces Third Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: WINA

Winmark Corporation (Nasdaq: WINA) announced today net income for the quarter ended September 29, 2012 of $4,259,500 (or $.82 per share diluted) compared to net income of $3,483,500 (or $.66 per share diluted) in 2011. For the nine months ended September 29, 2012, net income was $11,179,900 (or $2.13 per share diluted) compared to net income of $9,910,000 (or $1.89 per share diluted) for the same period last year.

John L. Morgan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “During the quarter, our pre-tax income was reduced by approximately $1.0 million, or $0.20 per share, due to our share of losses from Tomsten, Inc. as well as an impairment charge relating to our investment in BridgeFunds, L.L.C. This compares with a reduction of pre-tax income during the third quarter of 2011 from these investments of $0.5 million, or $0.10 per share.”

Mr. Morgan continued, “The strong cash flow from our franchising business allows us to grow our leasing operations. Franchising cash flow is improved by additional stores and store sales growth, which in turn provides us with the capital to invest on behalf of our leasing customers. This combination is the cornerstone of Winmark’s business model.”

Winmark Corporation creates, supports and finances business. At September 29, 2012, there were 958 franchises in operation under the brands Plato's Closet®, Play It Again Sports®, Once Upon A Child®, and Music Go Round®. An additional 59 retail franchises have been awarded but are not open. In addition, at September 29, 2012, the Company had a lease portfolio of $34.1 million.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), relating to future events or the future financial performance of the Company including statements with respect to our ability to finance the growth of our leasing and franchising businesses for the foreseeable future. Such forward-looking statements are only predictions or statements of intention subject to risks and uncertainties and actual events or results could differ materially from those anticipated. Because actual result may differ, shareholders and prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.
