AMCON earned $5.00 per fully diluted share on net income available to common shareholders of $2.8 million for the fourth fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2020.

“We are pleased with our fiscal 2020 results. AMCON’s associates and managers have fully embraced our role as an essential service provider as the nation navigates the COVID-19 pandemic. Our longstanding philosophy and tradition of sustained excellence in customer service has enabled AMCON to provide a consistent and timely flow of goods and services to our customers,” said Christopher H. Atayan, AMCON’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He further noted, “Notwithstanding the challenging macroeconomic environment, we were able to close on a key long-term strategic investment in Team Sledd, LLC, a leading convenience distributor in the Appalachian region of the United States. This investment has brought a very talented group of associates into the AMCON family and has significantly expanded our geographic footprint. We continue to seek strategic acquisition opportunities for operators who want to align with our customer centric management philosophy.”

The wholesale distribution segment reported revenues of $1.5 billion and operating income of $17.3 million for fiscal 2020, and revenues and operating income of $415.1 million and $6.4 million, respectively, for the fourth fiscal quarter of fiscal 2020. The retail health food segment reported revenues of $46.0 million and an operating loss of $1.8 million for fiscal 2020, and revenues of $11.4 million and an operating loss of $0.6 million for the fourth fiscal quarter of fiscal 2020.

“We continue to anticipate a heightened level of capital expenditures in the coming years as we make targeted investments in our foodservice and technology platforms, expand our geographic reach, and continue to redevelop our retail health food store portfolio. As our customer base grows, we are expanding the territories we serve in support of this growth,” said Andrew C. Plummer, AMCON’s President and Chief Operating Officer.

Charles J. Schmaderer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer said, “At September 30, 2020, our shareholders’ equity was $64.8 million, resulting in adjusted book value per share of $115.50. During fiscal 2020, we turned our inventory 19 times and ended the year with $65.1 million of consolidated debt. At its lowest point during fiscal 2020, the Company’s total consolidated debt was approximately $22.2 million.” Mr. Schmaderer also added, “We were delighted to renew our long term credit facility with our existing banking group during fiscal 2020. Our banking group has been a long-term partner and supporter of the Company’s strategic growth and expansion initiatives.”


AMCON’s Healthy Edge Retail Group plays an important role in the health and wellness of the communities it serves. Throughout the pandemic, our management team has worked diligently to offer a continuous and safe shopping experience for customers. Our long term relationship with the organic/natural products vendor community has enabled our stores to meet the demands of our customers for total wellness solutions.

GAAP Reconciliation and Management Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial measure of adjusted book value per share included in this press release (“adjusted book value per share”) has been determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measurement reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s business that, when viewed together with its financial results computed in accordance with GAAP, provides a more complete understanding of factors affecting historical financial performance of the Company. This measure is important to investors interested in determining the amount of book value per share if all potentially dilutive shares were exercised or vested and outstanding. This non-GAAP financial measurement is not intended to be a substitute for the comparable GAAP measurements and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has defined the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted book value per share as follows:

  • “Adjusted book value per share” is defined as total shareholders’ equity increased by the impact of proceeds from the exercise of all stock options and vesting of restricted stock units divided by total common shares outstanding plus common shares issuable upon the exercise of all stock options and vesting of restricted stock units.”
