Rite Aid Reports Net Income Of $71.5 Million And Adjusted EBITDA Of $282.3 Million For Third Quarter Fiscal 2014

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) today reported operating results for its fiscal third quarter ended Nov. 30, 2013. The company reported revenues of $6.4 billion, net income of $71.5 million or $0.04 per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA of $282.3 million, or 4.4 percent of revenues. Prior year’s results included an $18.1 million or $0.02 per diluted share benefit from the settlement of interchange fee litigation. Current year earnings per diluted share were negatively impacted by $0.03 per share due to the redemption of the Company’s Series G and Series H Convertible Preferred stock on Sept. 30, 2013.

“Our solid third quarter results were driven by the continued success of our key wellness initiatives, specifically the strong start to our flu immunization campaign, and the completion of additional Wellness stores, which now represent nearly a quarter of all Rite Aid stores,” said Rite Aid Chairman and CEO John Standley.

“Our team of dedicated Rite Aid associates worked together to execute our strategy and deliver growth in same-store prescription counts, increased same-store sales and net income of more than $71 million,” he added. “These results reflect our continued progress in building our unique brand of health, wellness and customer engagement.”

Third Quarter Summary

Revenues for the 13-week quarter were $6.4 billion versus revenues of $6.2 billion in the prior year’s third quarter. Revenues increased 1.9 percent primarily as a result of an increase in pharmacy same store sales.

Same store sales for the quarter increased 2.3 percent over the prior year’s 13-week period, consisting of a 3.5 percent increase in pharmacy sales, partially offset by a 0.2 percent decrease in front end sales. Pharmacy sales included an approximate 88 basis point negative impact from new generic introductions. The number of prescriptions filled in same stores increased 0.7 percent over the prior year period. Prescription sales accounted for 68.6 percent of total drugstore sales, and third party prescription revenue was 97.1 percent of pharmacy sales.
