Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. (NYSE:HTSI) (the “Company”) today reported that sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended July 2, 2013 increased by 2.9% to $1.19 billion from $1.15 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. For the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013, sales increased by 3.6% to $3.52 billion from $3.39 billion for the comparable period of fiscal 2012. The increase in sales for the quarter and 39-week period was driven by an increase in comparable store sales and sales from new stores, partially offset by store closings. Comparable store sales increased by 1.29% for the quarter, and 2.48% for the 39-week period ended July 2, 2013, from the respective comparable periods of fiscal 2012. Comparable store sales for fiscal 2013 were negatively impacted by the shift of both the Easter and Fourth of July Holidays. Sales for the Easter Holiday were reported in the Company’s second quarter of fiscal 2013, as compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012; in addition, sales for the day before the Fourth of July Holiday will be reported in the Company’s fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, but was included in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Management estimates that the negative impact due to the shift in the holiday periods was 70 basis points for the quarter and 13 basis points for the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013.

During the first nine months of fiscal 2013, the Company opened five new stores, two of which were the stores acquired from Lowe’s Food Stores, Inc. (“Lowes Foods”) in 2012 that were re-opened under a new format and banner - “201central,” and one of which replaced a store previously closed, and closed one store that will be replaced with a new store to be opened in fiscal 2014. Since the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company has opened twelve new stores and closed one store that will be replaced with a new store to be opened in fiscal 2014, for a net addition of eleven stores. The Company operated 212 stores as of the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 increased by 4.0% to $362.2 million (30.54% of sales) from $348.3 million (30.22% of sales) in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. For the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013, gross profit increased by 3.7% to $1.06 billion (30.05% of sales) from $1.02 billion (30.03% of sales) in the same period of fiscal 2012. The LIFO charge for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was zero as compared to $1.5 million (0.13% of sales) in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The LIFO charge for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 was $0.7 million (0.02% of sales) as compared to $7.4 million (0.22% of sales) for the first nine months of fiscal 2012. The Company currently estimates that it will experience minimal product cost inflation during fiscal 2013.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased from the third quarter of fiscal 2012, while during the first nine months of fiscal 2013 SG&A expenses increased from the respective nine month period in the prior year primarily as a result of incremental store growth and its impact on associated operational costs. On a percent of sales basis, SG&A expenses decreased by 150 basis points during the quarter and 43 basis points for the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013, as compared to the respective periods of the prior year. As reported in the prior year, the operating results for the comparable quarter and 39-week period in fiscal 2012 included approximately $22.3 million of impairment losses and other incremental costs associated with the store purchase and sale transaction with Lowes Foods (“Lowes Foods Transaction Costs”) and gains of $3.1 million recognized from life insurance proceeds. The net impact of these items effectively increased fiscal 2012 SG&A expenses by $19.2 million, or 167 basis points for the comparable quarter and 57 basis points for the comparable 39-week period.

Operating profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 increased by 69.1% to $55.0 million (4.64% of sales) from $32.6 million (2.82% of sales) in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. For the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013, operating profit increased by 15.6% to $151.8 million (4.32% of sales) from $131.3 million (3.87% of sales) in the comparable period of fiscal 2012.

The Company reported net earnings of $31.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to net earnings of $15.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Net earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were comprised of earnings from continuing operations of $32.2 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, and a loss from discontinued operations of $1.1 million. Net earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was comprised of earnings from continuing operations of $20.0 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, and a loss from discontinued operations of $4.2 million.

Net earnings for the 39 weeks ended July 2, 2013 totaled $86.7 million and was comprised of earnings from continuing operations of $87.8 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, and a loss from discontinued operations of $1.1 million. Net earnings for the 39 weeks ended July 1, 2012 totaled $59.7 million and was comprised of earnings from continuing operations of $76.2 million, or $1.55 per diluted share, and a loss from discontinued operations of $16.5 million. In addition to the Lowes Foods Transaction Costs and insurance gains recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 as discussed above, earnings from continuing operations for fiscal 2012 were favorably impacted by a reversal of accrued interest amounting to $1.3 million that was associated with a reduction of the Company’s unrecognized tax liabilities. The net impact of these items reduced earnings from continuing operations after tax during the first nine months of fiscal 2012 by $9.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.

The loss from discontinued operations in fiscal 2013 resulted from adjustments required to true up the tax benefits realized from the loss on the sale of the Company’s wholly-owned industrial thread manufacturing company American & Efird (“A&E”). The loss from discontinued operations in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 included an income tax expense adjustment of $3.5 million for establishing a reserve against future utilization of tax benefits as a result of the A&E purchase price allocation which re-categorized more of the loss on sale as a capital loss. The pre-tax loss from discontinued operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 amounted to $19.0 million and were primarily driven by non-cash charges for the settlement of pension liabilities and other employee benefits in connection with the sale of A&E.

Thomas W. Dickson, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are pleased with our results for the third quarter. Our comparable store sales increase, which was negatively impacted by the shift of both the Easter and Fourth of July Holidays, remained positive despite the fact that we still do not see any meaningful inflation for the current year. In addition, after adjusting for the shift in the holidays, we continue to realize an increase in the number of items sold year-over-year. We believe that our pricing and promotional strategies are effective in driving unit sales while increasing the quarterly gross margin by 32 basis points over the prior year. We remain committed to our customers to deliver outstanding values and excellent customer service.”

The Company’s operating performance and strong financial position provides the flexibility to continue with our store development program for new and replacement stores along with the remodeling and expansion of existing stores. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2013 are planned to total approximately $200 million. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company plans to open four new stores and complete major remodels on two stores (both of which will be expanded in size). The fiscal 2013 store development program is expected to result in a 4.2% increase in retail square footage, as compared to a 4.1% increase in fiscal 2012. The Company currently anticipates re-opening the temporarily closed store in the Washington D.C. area during the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2014 are currently estimated to be approximately $205 million. The Company routinely evaluates its existing store operations in regards to its overall business strategy and from time to time will close or divest underperforming stores.

The Company’s capital expenditure plans entail the continued expansion of its existing markets, including the Washington, D.C. metro area which incorporates northern Virginia, the District of Columbia, southern Maryland and coastal Delaware. Real estate development by its nature is both unpredictable and subject to external factors including weather, construction schedules and costs. Any change in the amount and timing of new store development can impact the expected capital expenditures, sales and operating results.

The Company’s management remains cautious in its expectations for fiscal 2013 due to the current economic environment and its impact on the Company’s customers. The Company will continue to refine its merchandising strategies to respond to the changing shopping demands. The retail grocery market remains intensely competitive, and any operating improvement will be dependent on the Company’s ability to increase its market share and to effectively execute the Company’s strategic expansion plans.

On July 8, 2013, the Company and The Kroger Co. (“Kroger”) entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Kroger will purchase all outstanding shares of the Company for $49.38 per share in cash (“The Merger Agreement”). The terms of the Merger Agreement were approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies. The merger is expected to close following the satisfaction of customary closing conditions including approval by the Company’s shareholders and regulatory approval.

Definition of Comparable Store Sales:

Comparable store sales are computed using corresponding calendar weeks to account for the occasional extra week included in a fiscal year.
A new store must be in operation for 14 months before it enters into the calculation of comparable store sales. A closed store is removed
from the calculation in the month in which its closure is announced. A new store opening within an approximate two-mile radius of an
existing store that is to be closed upon the new store opening is included as a replacement store in the comparable store sales measure
as if it were the same store. Sales increases resulting from existing comparable stores that are expanded in size are included in the
calculations of comparable store sales, if the store remains open during the construction period. If the location is closed, the sales during the
period are removed from the calculation. If the location is completely rebuilt, it is reported as a replacement store and included in the same
store sales calculation for the weeks actually open.
 
(1) Pre-opening costs are included with SG&A expenses and consist of rent, labor and associated fringe benefits, and recruiting and
relocation costs incurred prior to a new store opening.
