Central Garden & Pet Company Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended December 27, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second and Third Quarters of 2015

Central Garden & Pet Company reported earnings results for the first quarter ended December 27, 2014. The Company reported first quarter net sales of $307.3 million, an increase of $16.8 million or 6%, compared with $290.5 million in the first quarter of the prior year. The Company's first quarter operating income was $1.1 million, compared to an operating loss of $8.4 million in the first quarter of 2014, an improvement of $9.5 million. The net loss for the quarter was $5.7 million, or $0.12 per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $12.7 million, or $0.26 per fully diluted share in the year-ago period. The Company historically has reported a loss in its first fiscal quarter given the seasonal nature of the lawn and garden category. Loss before income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $9.662 million compared to $20.727 million a year ago. The company believes results for its second and third quarters of 2015 will not exhibit the same year-over year strength as the prior two quarters. The Company currently expects the results for the two quarters to not exceed the prior year, due predominately to factors affecting the Company's wild bird feed business. Wild bird feed sales and margins are expected to be negatively impacted by lower product pricing, related to lower raw material costs and competitive pressures.
