Rite Aid Reports Net Income And Record Adjusted EBITDA For Fourth Quarter And Full 2014 Fiscal Year

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE:RAD) today reported operating results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 1, 2014.

For the fourth quarter, the company reported revenues of $6.6 billion, net income of $55.4 million or $0.06 per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA of $356.3 million, or 5.4 percent of revenues.

For the full year, the company reported revenues of $25.5 billion, net income of $249.4 million or $0.23 per diluted share, and Adjusted EBITDA of $1,325.0 million, or 5.2 percent of revenues.

“Thanks to the strong teamwork of our dedicated Rite Aid associates, we delivered strong fourth-quarter and fiscal 2014 results, including new company records for fourth-quarter and full-year Adjusted EBITDA,” said Rite Aid Chairman and CEO John Standley. “These accomplishments reflect the significant progress we’re making in executing key initiatives and delivering on our promise to actively work with our customers to keep them well.”

“Our recent acquisitions of Health Dialog and RediClinic, our expanded partnership with McKesson and our continued commitment to investing in our store base have positioned us to transition our strategy from turnaround to growth as we more aggressively pursue opportunities to become a growing retail healthcare company.”

Fourth Quarter Summary

Revenues for the quarter were $6.6 billion versus revenues of $6.5 billion in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Revenues increased 2.2 percent primarily as a result of an increase in pharmacy same store sales.

Same store sales for the quarter increased 2.1 percent over the prior year, consisting of a 3.5 percent increase in pharmacy sales, partially offset by a 0.7 percent decrease in front end sales. Pharmacy sales included an approximate 123 basis point negative impact from new generic introductions. The number of prescriptions filled in same stores decreased 1.8 percent over the prior year period, with 1.3 percent of this decrease being driven by a decrease in flu-related prescriptions and flu shots. Prescription sales accounted for 67.5 percent of total drugstore sales, and third party prescription revenue was 97.1 percent of pharmacy sales.
