Granite City Food & Brewery® Reports 33.3% Increase In Revenue In Fourth Quarter 2012

Granite City Food & Brewery Ltd. (NASDAQ: GCFB), a casual dining restaurant group, today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 25, 2012.

Highlights were as follows:

  • Total restaurant sales increased 33.3% to $30.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 from $23.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011
  • Total restaurant sales increased 29.7% to $120.9 million for fiscal year 2012 from $93.2 million in fiscal year 2011
  • Same store sales (SSS) increased 4.5% and 2.6% in the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012 over the comparable periods of 2011, respectively
  • Restaurant-level Income Before Occupancy (“IBO”) increased $2.6 million and $8.7 million in the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012 over the comparable periods of 2011, respectively
  • Company recorded approximately $1.6 million and $7.0 million in Adjusted EBITDA in fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012, respectively, compared to $0.03 million and $3.0 million in the comparable periods of 2011

“2012 was an incredible year for the Company and we accomplished a lot in a very short time period,” commented Rob Doran, CEO. “This past year we focused on setting the stage for growth and then executing on the steps we put in place to grow both organically and externally. Organically, we were able to increase our store level revenue and our store level operating margin pushing more store level income to the bottom line. Additionally, we began our rebranding process through signage, menus and most importantly, our new prototype Granite City restaurant in Troy, MI – which has been a huge success and surpassed all our internal pre-opening goals. Externally, we finalized the purchase of four additional Cadillac Ranch restaurants, stabilized the operations and absorbed the growth within our home office team. The completion of a $6.5 million equity placement with CDP mid-year helped fund 2012 growth and set the stage for three additional Granite City restaurants in 2013 – including our recent opening in Franklin, TN. We are very happy with our results of this past year and look forward to continued success in 2013.”
