Ingles Markets, Incorporated Reports 48th Year Of Record Sales, Plus Growth In Sales And Net Income For Fourth Quarter And Fiscal Year 2012

Net rental income, gains/losses on asset disposals and other income totaled $5.6 million for fiscal 2012, compared with $8.7 million for fiscal 2011. The decrease is attributable to a $2.8 million gain on property sold in an eminent domain proceeding during fiscal 2011.

Interest expense totaled $60.0 million for the year ended September 29, 2012, compared with $62.0 million for the year ended September 24, 2011. Interest expense decreased due to the net reduction of total debt and the refinancing of existing debt at lower rates. Interest on the $99.7 million of bonds issued in December 2010 was capitalized as part of the construction cost of the Company’s new distribution and warehouse facility, until the facility opened during the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

The Company’s effective tax rate decreased to 35.5% for fiscal 2012, compared with 35.7% for fiscal 2011 due to additional federal tax credits available in the first part of fiscal 2012.

Net income for fiscal 2012 rose 11.2% to $43.4 million, compared with net income of $39.1 million for fiscal 2011. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the Company’s publicly traded Class A common stock increased to $1.87 and $1.79 per share, respectively, for the year ended September 29, 2012, compared with $1.67 and $1.60 per share, respectively, for the year ended September 24, 2011.

Capital expenditures totaled $180.6 million and $97.5 million for fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. The largest capital expenditure in fiscal 2012 was for the completion of the new distribution facility, including expenditures for related vehicles and equipment.

The Company has a line of credit facility totaling $175.0 million of which there was $40.1 million outstanding at September 29, 2012. The Company is in compliance with all of its debt agreements and has significant unencumbered assets at September 29, 2012.
