AMCON Distributing Company Reports Fully Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.71 for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 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 $0.71 on net income available to common shareholders of $0.5 million for our second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017.

“We continue to invest in our wholesale business to enhance our leadership position in the convenience distribution industry. We are expanding our foodservice and technology capabilities as the needs of our customers grow in complexity. This approach has served to differentiate us from our competition,” 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 and are evaluating several geographic growth opportunities as our customer base expands.”

For the second fiscal quarter of 2017, our Wholesale Distribution Segment reported revenues of $287.3 million and operating income of $2.7 million. Our Retail Health Food Segment reported revenues of $6.7 million and an operating loss of $0.2 million for the same period.

“Our annual spring trade show in Kansas City was well received by our customers and vendors. This annual event provides momentum as we enter our customers’ peak selling season,” said Kathleen M. Evans, President of AMCON’s Wholesale Distribution Segment. She further noted, “As we expand into new territories we are implementing the logistics investments and technology necessary to support our customers’ geographic growth.”

“We are pleased with the progress of our new store in Orlando. Our management team is developing market driven enhancements to our core business model in order to compete in this highly challenging retail environment,” said Clifford Ginn, President of AMCON’s Retail Health Food Segment.

“We actively manage our working capital and liquidity which provides an 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 investments necessary for long term competitive success,” said Andrew C. Plummer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer. “We were pleased to close the March 31, 2017 quarter with shareholders’ equity of $67.1 million and consolidated debt of $8.3 million.”
