AMCON Distributing Company Reports Fully Diluted Earnings Per Share Of $1.73 For The Quarter Ended December 31, 2013

AMCON Distributing Company (“AMCON”) (NYSE MKT:DIT), an Omaha, Nebraska based consumer products company is pleased to announce fully diluted earnings per share of $1.73 on net income available to common shareholders of $1.2 million for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013.

“We are pleased with the start to fiscal 2014. Our relentless focus on customer service and reliability has positioned AMCON as a leader in the convenience distribution industry. We are committed to our customers’ profitability and growth which strengthens our partnership,” said Christopher H. Atayan, AMCON’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He further noted, “We actively manage our balance sheet to generate attractive risk adjusted rates of return on the assets we have deployed. We are actively seeking acquisitions that can benefit from our extensive platform of services.”

“One of our goals is to develop our business in higher margin non-traditional products. In particular, foodservice continues to be an area of high focus as our sales in this category grow. Additionally, we are enhancing our selection of electronic cigarettes as customer acceptance of these products has accelerated significantly,” said Kathleen M. Evans, President of AMCON’s Wholesale Distribution Segment.

“Industry growth in the retail health food sector has led to greater competition from new market entrants in the Midwestern markets. The number of new market entrants has placed pressure on sales as a result,” said Eric Hinkefent, President of AMCON’s Retail Health Food Segment.

“We were able to use our balance sheet strength to achieve several corporate objectives during the quarter. We negotiated the repurchase of 25,057 shares of common stock in a private transaction while at the same time taking advantage of attractive product related opportunities. At December 31, 2013 our shareholders’ equity was $53.0 million and consolidated debt was $33.5 million,” said Andrew Plummer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer. “The expansion of our foodservice facilities at our Rapid City, South Dakota branch continues to progress according to plan. This expansion will provide significant additional capacity to continue meeting our customers changing needs in the Dakotas that has resulted from considerable growth in that market. In addition, we continue to invest in information technology for internal and external purposes,” added Mr. Plummer.
