UPDATE -- Sprouts Farmers Market Releases Comparable Store Sales Growth for
the Seven Weeks Ended November 17, 2013
PHOENIX, Nov. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a release issued under the same
headline earlier today by Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (Nasdaq:SFM), please be
advised that an additional paragraph has been added to the end of the release.
The complete updated text follows.
Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SFM) today provided
preliminary information on certain aspects of its 2013 financial performance
through November 17, 2013. For the seven weeks ended November 17, 2013, the
Company has recorded comparable store sales growth of 13.7%, or 22.8% on a
two-year stacked basis pro forma for the 2012 acquisition of Sunflower Farmers
Market. Comparable store sales growth has been driven by continued momentum in
customer traffic and basket size.
The results for this seven-week period are not for an entire fiscal period,
and there can be no assurance that final results for the 13-week period ended
December 29, 2013 will not differ from these results.
