"We are pleased to report another strong quarter, evidence of our customers' desire for fresh, natural and organic food at affordable prices," said Doug Sanders, president and chief executive officer of Sprouts Farmers Market. "Our positive first-half momentum continued into the third quarter, with comparable store sales growth of 10.2%. This gives us confidence in the power of our model and the ability to increase our guidance for the year. Our new store pipeline remains strong with more than 55 leases approved for 2014 and beyond, of which 30 are signed. Based on our robust pipeline, we remain optimistic about our future growth opportunities and expansion strategy."

In addition, in comparing its results to the comparable periods of 2012, the Company has presented 2012 financial results on a pro forma basis as if the May 2012 business combination with Sunflower Farmers Market, Inc.
