Fairway Group Holdings Corp. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year Fiscal 2013 Results

General and administrative expenses for the fiscal year increased 36% to $60.2 million from $44.3 million in the prior year. The increase was attributable to Fairway's continued investment in central infrastructure to support the execution of Fairway's growth strategy, and an increase in non-recurring expenses, including IPO related expenses of approximately $1.6 million and transaction expenses related to the senior credit facilities entered into in August 2012 and February 2013, of approximately $5.0 million.

Central Services 2 for the fiscal year increased 7% to $36.4 million from $34.1 million in the prior year. The Company has continued to leverage this expense, which declined, as a percentage of sales, 64 basis points to 5.5% in fiscal 2013 from 6.1% in the prior year. On a pro forma basis to include the estimated lost sales at the Red Hook, Brooklyn location, central services, as a percentage of sales, declined 84 basis points to 5.3% in fiscal 2013. 1
