Evans continued, “This is clearly evident based on our positive fall trade show response which will provide considerable momentum as we enter fiscal 2015. We are very excited about the completion of our plant expansion in Rapid City, South Dakota that will serve our foodservice growth plans in the region.”

“The Retail Health Food industry continues to grow. However, with this growth there has been substantial new competition enter our markets which has pressured revenues,” said Eric Hinkefent, President of AMCON’s Retail Health Food segment. “We have taken an aggressive approach to rationalize our operating expenses in light of the competitive environment and are looking at alternative ways to maintain our margins,” added Hinkefent.

“We are very focused on increasing our shareholders’ equity per share and maintaining high levels of balance sheet liquidity. Debt reduction is an important priority for us because it improves our debt to equity ratio. At September 30, 2014 our shareholders’ equity was $55.4 million, resulting in adjusted book value per share of $80.62. We turned our inventory twenty-six times and consolidated debt was reduced to $19.2 million. This was after share repurchases and plant expansions totaling $5.5 million,” said Andrew Plummer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer. “The Rapid City plant expansion brings a number of important benefits including increased efficiencies and the enhanced ability to service the thriving foodservice sector. We continue to place a high priority on the development of information technology for internal and external purposes. These are important investments in the future of our business,” added Plummer.
