PHOENIX, Aug. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SFM) today reported results for its 13 week second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Net sales of $622.4 million; a 45% increase from the same period in 2012
  • Net sales increased 22% compared to pro forma net sales for the same period in 2012
  • Pro forma comparable store sales growth of 10.8% and two year combined comparable store sales growth of 21.0%
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.10; a 100% increase from the same period in 2012
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.14
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $52.7 million; a 27% increase from pro forma adjusted EBITDA in 2012

"We are pleased to report strong financial results in our initial quarterly release as a public company," said Doug Sanders, president and chief executive officer of Sprouts Farmers Market. "Our robust momentum continued into the second quarter resulting in strong top line performance with pro forma comparable store sales growth of 10.8%. New store sales continue to exceed our expectations as the Sprouts Farmers Market brand continues to attract health-conscious customers focused on value, paving the way for future success."

In order to aid understanding of the Company's business performance, it has presented results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and has also presented adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures that are explained and reconciled to the comparable GAAP measures in the tables included in this release. In addition, in comparing its results to the comparable periods of 2012, the Company has presented 2012 financial results on a pro forma basis as if the May 2012 business combination with Sunflower Farmers Market, Inc. ("Sunflower Transaction") had occurred on the first day of the Company's 2012 fiscal year. Unaudited pro forma condensed consolidated statements of operations for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012, giving effect to the Sunflower Transaction, are included in the tables in this release.

Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Net sales in the second quarter 2013 increased 45% to $622.4 million. Second quarter net sales growth was driven by the Sunflower Transaction, an increase in comparable store sales growth and new store openings. Net sales increased 22% compared to pro forma sales for the same period of 2012, driven by pro forma comparable store sales growth of 10.8% and strong performance in new stores opened. The pro forma comparable store sales growth increase resulted from a balanced rise in traffic and basket size and continued strong performance across departments.

For the quarter, gross profit increased 43% to $187.0 million resulting in a gross profit margin of 30.1% of sales, or a decrease of 30 basis points, from the same period in 2012. Gross profit increased 23% compared to pro forma gross profit in the same period in 2012, primarily driven by the increase in sales, and the gross profit margin increased by 10 basis points compared to the pro forma gross margin percentage for the same period in 2012. Increases in gross margin from the leverage in occupancy and buying costs were partially offset by produce inflation and lower margins in the vitamin department due to temporary product markdowns in connection with merchandise alignment across Sprouts and former Henry's and Sunflower stores.

Direct store expenses, as a percentage of sales, for the quarter decreased 90 basis points to 19.8%. Direct store expenses, as a percentage of sales, decreased 50 basis points compared to pro forma direct store expenses in the second quarter 2012, primarily due to leverage in labor cost and also reflected a loss on disposal of assets primarily related to the sale-leaseback of a store in 2012.

Net income was $12.5 million for the second quarter 2013, up $7.2 million from the same period in 2012, or an increase of 135%. Net income in the second quarter of 2013 included an $8.2 million pre-tax loss on extinguishment of debt and pre-tax store closure and exit costs of $0.9 million. Pro forma net income for the second quarter of 2012 included pre-tax acquisition and integration costs of $4.3 million; $1.3 million pre-tax loss on disposal of assets primarily related to the sale leaseback of a store; and pre-tax store closure and exit costs of $1.2 million. Excluding these items, adjusted net income increased 51% to $18.0 million compared to pro forma adjusted net income of $11.9 million in the same period in 2012. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $52.7 million, up $11.3 million, or 27%, from pro forma adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2012. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.14, a 56% increase from pro forma adjusted diluted earnings per share from the same period in 2012. This increase was attributable to improved business performance from higher comparable store sales and resulting operating leverage and performance of new stores opened.

Fiscal Year-to-Date Financial Results

For the 26-week period ended June 30, 2013, net sales increased 48% to $1.20 billion. Growth was driven by the Sunflower Transaction, an increase in comparable store sales, as well as new store openings. Net income was $30.6 million for the 26-week period ended June 30, 2013, up $15.7 million from the same period in 2012, or an increase of 106%. Net sales increased 19% compared to pro forma net sales for the same period of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $104.8 million, up $18.3 million or 21% from pro forma adjusted EBITDA in the same period of 2012.

Growth and Development

During second quarter 2013, the Company opened six new stores, four in California and one each in Oklahoma and Texas. An additional five stores have been opened in the third quarter to date bringing 2013 new store openings to 17, for a total of 165 stores in eight states as of Aug. 22, 2013. The Company expects to open two more stores in 2013, bringing total new stores in 2013 to 19.

Leverage, Liquidity and IPO

The Company generated cash from operations of $101.0 million year-to-date through June 30, 2013 and invested $51.7 million in capital expenditures, primarily for new stores. The Company ended the quarter with a principal balance on its term loan of $700.0 million, and had $65.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $52.0 million available under its revolving credit facility.

On Aug. 6, 2013, the Company closed its initial public offering of 21.3 million shares of common stock, including approximately 2.8 million shares issued as a result of the exercise in full of the underwriters' option to purchase additional shares. The Company received net proceeds from the offering of $344.7 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses, and paid down $340.0 million of outstanding indebtedness under its term loan facility. After this payment, the principal balance on the Company's existing term loan is $360.0 million.

"We are extremely pleased with overall business performance including our ability to continue to drive operating leverage from top line growth," said Amin Maredia, chief financial officer. "With strong operating cash flows and lower debt resulting from the use of IPO proceeds, we are extremely well positioned to execute on our growth plans."

Outlook

The following provides information on the Company's current estimated 2013 results:

  • 19% to 21% growth compared to pro forma net sales in 2012
  • Pro forma comparable store sales growth of 8.5 to 9.0%
  • Net Income of $44.0 million to $47.0 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $180.0 million to $185.0 million
  • Adjusted Net Income of $57 million to $60 million
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.41 to $0.43
  • Capital expenditures of $70.0 million to $75.0 million, net of landlord reimbursements
  • Based on the issuance of shares in the initial public offering, weighted average diluted shares outstanding are expected to be approximately 145 million, 153 million and 140 million for the third quarter, fourth quarter and full year 2013, respectively.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA guidance for the year exclude the following pre-tax items: $8.2 million loss on extinguishment of debt and $0.9 million of store closure and exit costs both recognized in the first half of the year. Additionally they exclude $9.0 million loss on extinguishment of debt related to the $340.0 million pay down of the Company's term loan to be recorded in the third quarter of 2013.

SPROUTS FARMERS MARKET, INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL INFORMATION

1. Basis of Presentation and Description of Transactions

Effective May 29, 2012, the Company acquired all of the outstanding common and preferred stock of Sunflower in the Sunflower Transaction, a transaction accounted for as a business combination, which was financed through the issuance of debt and 14.9 million shares of common stock.

The historical Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. results of operations for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012 are derived from its unaudited consolidated financial statements for the periods then ended. The historical Sunflower results of operations for the period January 1, 2012 to May 28, 2012, were derived from the Sunflower pre-combination unaudited financial statements. Certain amounts from the Sunflower pre-combination unaudited financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the Company's presentation.

2. Pro Forma for Sunflower Transaction

The historical results of operations have been adjusted to give pro forma effect to events that are (i) directly attributable to the Sunflower Transaction, (ii) factually supportable and (iii) expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results, as if the Sunflower Transaction occurred on the first day of fiscal 2012 (referred to as "Pro Forma Adjustments for Sunflower Transaction"). Below is a description of the types of adjustments represented in the Sunflower Fiscal Period Alignment and Sunflower Transaction Adjustments columns.

Sunflower Fiscal Period Alignment - Sunflower's fiscal 2012 commenced one day earlier than the Company's fiscal 2012. Pro forma adjustments for Sunflower Fiscal Period Alignment reflect the pro forma impact of deducting one day from the historical Sunflower results of operations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, the Company has presented adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to GAAP. The Company's management believes that these presentations provide useful information to management, analysts and investors regarding certain additional financial and business trends relating to its results of operations and financial condition. In addition, management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company as well as a component of incentive compensation. For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012, these non-GAAP measures are presented pro forma for the Sunflower Transaction. See "Unaudited Supplemental Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Information." The Company defines adjusted net income as net income excluding store closure and exit costs, one-time costs associated with its combination with Henry's Holdings, LLC ("Henry's") and the Sunflower Transaction (the "Transactions"), gain and losses from disposal of assets and the loss on extinguishment of debt. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. The Company defines EBITDA as net income before interest expense, provision for income tax, and depreciation and amortization, and defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA excluding store closure and exit costs, one-time costs associated with the Transactions, and losses from disposal of assets.

These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standard meanings prescribed by GAAP. Use of these terms may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. Because of their limitations, none of these non-GAAP measures should be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to use to reinvest in growth of the Company's business, or as a measure of cash that will be available to meet the Company's obligations. Each of these non-GAAP measures has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The following table shows a reconciliation of adjusted and pro forma adjusted net income, and adjusted and pro forma adjusted EBITDA to net income for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2013 and pro forma net income for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012:

(a) See "Unaudited Supplemental Pro Forma Condensed Consolidated Financial Information" for a reconciliation of pro forma net income to net income for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012. 
(b) Store closure and exit costs have been excluded from adjusted and pro forma adjusted EBITDA, and from adjusted and pro forma adjusted net income. In fiscal 2013 these costs included the costs related to the closure of a former Sunflower warehouse facility and adjustments to sublease assumptions on other properties. In fiscal 2012 these consist primarily of the costs to close a Sunflower administrative facility following the Sunflower Transaction. 
(c) Costs associated with acquisitions and integration represent the costs to integrate the combined businesses resulting from the Sunflower and Henry's Transactions. These expenses include professional fees and severance, which the Company excludes from its pro forma adjusted EBITDA and pro forma adjusted net income to provide period-to-period comparability of the Company's operating results because management believes these costs do not directly reflect the ongoing performance of its store operations. The Company does not expect to incur material expenses associated with integration of the Sunflower and Henry's Transactions in fiscal 2013. 
(d) Gain/Loss on disposal of assets represents the gains and losses recorded in connection with the disposal of property and equipment. The Company excludes gains and losses on disposals of assets from its adjusted and pro forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted and pro forma adjusted net income to provide period-to-period comparability of its operating results because management believes these costs do not directly reflect the ongoing performance of its store operations. The loss recorded in fiscal 2012 primarily relates to the loss on the sale leaseback of a store property.
(e) Pro forma adjusted and adjusted income tax provision for all periods presented represents the income tax provision and pro forma income tax provision plus the tax effect of the adjustments described in notes (b) through (e) above based on statutory tax rates for the period. For the thirteen weeks ended July 1, 2012, this amount was further adjusted to reflect a $0.6 million reduction in pro forma income tax provision for the effects of certain items related to the Sunflower Transaction. Of the adjustment, $1.0 million relates to the tax effects of $0.7 million and $2.2 million of non-deductible transaction costs incurred by the Company and Sunflower, respectively, based on statutory tax rates for the period. This adjustment was partially offset by a $0.4 million adjustment related to tax benefits from Sunflower stock option exercises. For the twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2012, this amount was further adjusted to reflect a $1.6 million reduction in pro forma income tax provision for the effects of certain items related to the Sunflower Transaction. Of the adjustment, $2.0 million relates to the tax effects of $2.5 million and $2.0 million of non-deductible transaction costs incurred by the Company and Sunflower, respectively, based on statutory tax rates for the period. This adjustment was partially offset by a $0.4 million adjustment related to tax benefits from Sunflower stock option exercises. The Company has excluded these items from its pro forma adjusted income tax provision because management believes they do not directly reflect the ongoing performance of its store operations and are not reflective of its ongoing income tax provision.
