Springfield, New Jersey – October 8, 2018 – Village Super Market, Inc. (NSD-VLGEA) today reported its results of operations for the fourth quarter ended July 28, 2018.

Net income was $6,011,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $6,805,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 includes a $822,000 (net of tax) non-recurring credit accrued related to multi-employer pension benefits, $671,000 (net of tax) in non-recurring assessments from Wakefern and $551,000 (net of tax) in pre-opening costs related to the Bronx, New York City store. Excluding these items, net income decreased 6% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year primarily due to higher operating and administrative expenses partially offset by the favorable impact of a reduction in the fiscal 2018 effective tax rate to 33.7% as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act").

Sales were $413,551,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $410,683,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Sales increased due to the opening of the Bronx, New York City store on June 28, 2018 partially offset by a decrease in same store sales of 0.3%. Same store sales decreased due primarily to two competitor store openings. New stores and replacement stores are included in same store sales in the quarter after the store has been in operation for four full quarters.  Store renovations and expansions are included in same store sales immediately.
 
Gross profit as a percentage of sales increased to 27.56% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 27.39% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 due primarily to increased departmental gross margin percentages (.11%) and more favorable product mix (.03%).

Sales were $1,612,015,000 in fiscal 2018 compared to $1,604,574,000 in fiscal 2017. Sales increased due to the opening of the Bronx, New York City store on June 28, 2018 and a same store sales increase of 0.2%.
