EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug 02, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ --
Peet's Coffee & Tea, Inc. (Nasdaq: PEET) today announced its second quarter 2007 results for the period ended July 1, 2007, which included 13 weeks.
(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070606/AQW139LOGO) In this release, the Company: -- Reports net revenue of $60.1 million, an increase of 21.0% versus last year; -- Reports diluted earnings per share of $0.13 and net income of $1.8 million; -- Announces that it expects to add new distribution to at least 1,000 new grocery customers through its direct store delivery sales system this year, primarily in the eastern U.S.; -- Reports that eight new stores opened in the quarter and the Company is on track to open 30 new stores in the year; and -- Announces that its new roasting facility in Alameda, Calif., is now fully operational and the transition from its Emeryville plant to the new facility is complete.
For the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2007, net revenue increased 21.0% to $60.1 million from $49.7 million for the corresponding period of fiscal 2006.
Reported net income for the quarter was $1.8 million or $0.13 per share, compared to $1.9 million or $0.13 per share last year, as restated.
"We are pleased with our progress this quarter," said Patrick O'Dea, president and chief executive officer of Peet's Coffee & Tea, Inc. "Sales growth in all our businesses was in line with our expectations, our grocery business is strengthening across the board, with new distribution in the eastern U.S. performing very well, and we are more than half way to our objective of opening 30 new stores this year."
Financial and Operating Summary
Retail net revenue increased 22.0% to $41.0 million for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2007 from $33.6 million for the corresponding period of fiscal 2006. The increase was primarily attributable to new retail stores opened in the last 12 months and growth in existing stores. The Company opened eight new retail locations in the quarter.
Specialty net revenue increased 18.8% to $19.1 million, compared to $16.1 million for the corresponding quarter last year. Within the specialty business, grocery grew 26.1%, food service and office sales were up 16.1% and the home delivery business registered 7.3% growth compared to the same period last year.
Cost of sales and related occupancy costs increased to 47.2% of total net revenue compared to 46.5% for the corresponding quarter last year. The increase over last year is due to higher milk and green coffee costs, higher grocery promotions and new retail stores with higher costs on lower initial sales, partially offset by a retail price increase in November 2006.
Operating expenses as a percent of net revenue increased slightly to 35.5% of total net revenue compared to 35.4% for the corresponding quarter last year. The favorable impact of retail pricing increases and overhead leverage was offset by higher retail operating expenses due to new stores and higher grocery promotions and other start up costs as the Company expanded in the East.
General and administrative expenses increased to $5.4 million compared to $4.6 million for the same period last year primarily due to investments in additional headcount for growth, offset by lower marketing spending.
Depreciation and amortization expenses increased to $2.6 million, compared to $2.1 million for the corresponding quarter last year. The increase was primarily due to the opening of 32 new retail stores in the last 12 months.
The impact of the financial statement restatement on the quarter ended July 2, 2006 increased net income by $144,000 ($0.01 per diluted share) as discussed in the 2006 Form 10-K.
The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents plus investments of $22.8 million.
Looking ahead, the Company is forecasting sales growth in the 20% range for the full year, with minor quarter-to-quarter variations.
