Village Super Market, Inc. Reports Results For The Quarter Ended April 27, 2013

Stocks in this article: VLGEA

SPRINGFIELD, N.J., June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Village Super Market, Inc. (Nasdaq:VLGEA) today reported its results of operations for the third quarter ended April 27, 2013.

Net income was $4,622,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, a decrease of 29% from the third quarter of the prior year. Net income declined primarily due to lower gross profit percentages and higher operating costs as a percentage of sales, partially due to investments in lower prices and enhanced customer service.

Sales were $359,808,000 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, an increase of 3.7% compared to the third quarter of the prior year. The sales increase is attributable to same store sales, as the Old Bridge, NJ store, acquired on January 29, 2012, is now included in same store sales. Same store sales increased due to higher sales in the two stores in Maryland, higher sales in one remodeled store and modest inflation. Sales continue to be impacted by economic weakness, high gas prices and high unemployment, which have resulted in increased sale item penetration and trading down. The Company expects same store sales in fiscal 2013 to increase from 2.75% to 3.50%.

Gross profit as a percentage of sales decreased to 27.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 27.4% in the third quarter of the prior year primarily due to decreased departmental gross margin percentages. Gross margins declined in several departments primarily due to investments in lower prices to combat nontraditional competitors. These declines were partially offset by improved product mix, lower promotional spending and lower LIFO charges.

Operating and administrative expense as a percentage of sales increased to 23.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 22.7% in the third quarter of the prior year primarily due to higher payroll and fringe benefit costs. Payroll costs increased due to efforts to enhance the customer experience and provide additional services including our first Village Food Garden at the remodeled Livingston store and the addition of ShopRite from Home in several stores. Fringe benefits increased primarily due to higher costs for health, pension and worker's compensation.
