AMCON Distributing Company Reports Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2022

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AMCON Distributing Company (“AMCON” or “Company”) (NYSE American: DIT), an Omaha, Nebraska based consumer products company, is pleased to announce fully diluted earnings per share of $5.19 on net income available to common shareholders of $3.0 million for its second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“We are pleased with our results for the second fiscal quarter. Our management team has remained highly focused on delivering a consistently superior level of customer service in a highly challenging operating environment,” said Christopher H. Atayan, AMCON’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Atayan further noted, “AMCON continues to seek out acquisition opportunities for distributors who want to align with our growing platform and customer centric management philosophy.”

The wholesale distribution segment reported revenues of $379.5 million and operating income of $6.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022. The retail health food segment reported revenues of $12.4 million and operating income of $0.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022.

“Ongoing supply chain disruptions with the consumer-packaged goods companies we partner with have impacted product availability across all markets, including the convenience distribution industry in which our company operates. The United States continues to experience an acute workforce shortage which we work diligently to address in our daily operations. Our Annual Spring Trade Show was well received and provides momentum as we enter our summer season. AMCON’s customer base continues to grow geographically and we are deploying the capital and human resources necessary to support this growth in a collaborative fashion,” said Andrew C. Plummer, AMCON’s President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Plummer further noted, “We are actively searching for facilities in, and adjacent to, the geographic markets we serve.”

Charles J. Schmaderer, AMCON’s Chief Financial Officer said, “We are pleased with the ongoing progress of our strategic investment in Team Sledd, LLC. As a core operating principle we continue to maintain consistently high levels of liquidity to support the Company’s various strategic initiatives and long-term growth plan. We ended the quarter with $82.0 million of shareholders’ equity.”

AMCON’s Healthy Edge Retail Group plays an important role in the health and wellness of the communities it serves. 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. Our strategy is to offer a broad selection of the highest quality organic and natural merchandise available supported by a high degree of customer service not found at other big box retailers within our industry.

AMCON is a leading wholesale distributor of consumer products, including beverages, candy, tobacco, groceries, foodservice, frozen and refrigerated foods, automotive supplies and health and beauty care products with distribution locations in Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Tennessee. AMCON, through its Healthy Edge Retail Group, operates twenty (20) health and natural product retail stores in the Midwest and Florida.
