AMCON Distributing Company Reports Fully Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.56 for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 18, 2017--AMCON Distributing Company (“AMCON”) (NYSE MKT:DIT), an Omaha, Nebraska based consumer products company is pleased to announce fully diluted earnings per share of $0.56 on net income available to common shareholders of $0.4 million for our third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017.

“Both of the industries in which we operate are undergoing transformative changes based on a number of factors including increased competition, shifts in consumer shopping habits, and new technologies. These developments have resulted in consolidation across all segments of the food and convenience store supply chains including manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Given this operating environment, we remain committed to our focused strategic plan which calls for ongoing investments in new programs, services, and technologies to enhance and support our leadership position in the convenience distribution industry,” said Christopher H. Atayan, AMCON’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He further noted, “We are actively seeking acquisitions that can benefit from our extensive platform of customer service. We are also looking carefully at a number of geographic growth opportunities as our customer base expands.”

For the third fiscal quarter of 2017, our Wholesale Distribution Segment reported revenues of $326.5 million and operating income of $3.1 million. Our Retail Health Food Segment reported revenues of $6.4 million and an operating loss of $0.6 million for the same period.

“Convenience store operators are increasingly looking to AMCON for easy to use technology solutions that assist them in areas such as category and profitability management and to enhance efficiency. Additionally, interest in building new non-tobacco revenue streams continues to accelerate amongst our customer base,” said Kathleen M. Evans, President of AMCON’s Wholesale Distribution segment. She further noted, “We are implementing the investments we’ve made in our trucking fleet and technology to further support our customers’ geographic growth.”

“We are pleased with the recent extensive renovations and update to our store in Oviedo, Florida. Our management team is developing market driven enhancements to our core business model in order for us to compete in this highly challenging retail environment,” said Clifford Ginn, President of AMCON’s Retail Health Food Segment. He further noted, “We are working diligently on building our next generation store in the Lakeland, Florida market.”

“We actively manage our working capital and liquidity which provides AMCON the ability to respond quickly to the dynamic environments in which both of our business segments operate. This conservative approach provides us significant flexibility to act in the long term best interest of the many constituencies we serve. Both of our business segments are utilizing financial resources in the course of making the capital and operational investments necessary for long term competitive success,” said Andrew C. Plummer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer. “We were pleased to close the June 30, 2017 quarter with shareholders’ equity of $67.3 million and consolidated debt of $13.4 million.”


AMCON is a leading wholesale distributor of consumer products, including beverages, candy, tobacco, groceries, foodservice, frozen and chilled foods, and health and beauty care products with locations in Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Tennessee. AMCON also operates fifteen (15) health and natural product retail stores in the Midwest and Florida. The retail stores operate under the names Chamberlin's Market & Cafe www.chamberlins.com and Akin’s Natural Foods Market www.akins.com.
