Highlight of Business Operations:

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 5.4% to $166.6 million as compared to $158.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The sales improvement is due to case volume growth of 15.4% for our Power+ Brands and 6.3% for carbonated soft drinks. This sales improvement was partially offset by a 2.9% decline in unit pricing primarily due to product mix changes.

Selling, general & administrative expenses were $36.1 million or 21.7% of net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $36.9 million or 23.4% of net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in expenses was due to lower marketing costs.

Net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 increased 6.8% to $349.4 million as compared to $327.1 million for the first six months of fiscal 2012. The sales improvement is due to case volume growth of 18.3% for our Power+ Brands and 6.8% for carbonated soft drinks. This sales improvement was partially offset by a 2.6% decline in unit pricing primarily due to product mix changes.

Selling, general & administrative expenses were $72.4 million or 20.7% of net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2013 compared to $77.3 million or 23.6% of net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2012. The decrease in expenses was due to lower marketing and administration expenses.
