Stock quotes in this article: SPTN

SpartanNash Company (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPTN) today reported financial results for the 12-week second quarter ended July 12, 2014.

Second Quarter Results

Consolidated net sales for second quarter increased 178.0 percent to $1.8 billion compared to $651.1 million last year, primarily due to $1.2 billion in sales generated as a result of the November 2013 merger with Nash Finch Company (“Nash Finch”).

Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter increased 97.8 percent to $58.3 million, or 3.2 percent of net sales, compared to $29.5 million, or 4.5 percent of net sales last year. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) financial measure. Please see the financial tables at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net earnings, and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable measure prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Reported operating earnings increased 115.3 percent to $32.6 million compared to $15.2 million for the prior year quarter, primarily due to contributions from the merger with Nash Finch. These benefits were partially offset by the impact of low inflation, increased integration, restructuring and asset impairment charges, additional LIFO expense and a pension settlement accounting charge.

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter were $19.1 million, or $0.50 per diluted share on approximately 37.8 million shares outstanding, compared to $10.2 million, or $0.46 per diluted share on approximately 21.9 million shares outstanding last year. For the second quarter of fiscal 2014, adjusted earnings from continuing operations excludes net after-tax charges of $2.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, related to merger integration expenses and asset impairment and restructuring costs and also excludes a tax benefit of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, related to the favorable settlement of an unrecognized tax liability established in the prior year. For the prior year second quarter, adjusted earnings from continuing operations excluded net after-tax charges of $2.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, related to merger expenses and asset impairment charges. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations is a non-GAAP operating financial measure. Reported earnings from continuing operations were $17.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $8.1 million, $0.37 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter, primarily due to the factors previously mentioned.
