The Kroger Co. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended January 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $25,207 million against $23,222 million a year ago. Operating profit was $912 million against $718 million a year ago. Net earnings before income tax expense were $797 million against $611 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to the company were $518 million or $1.04 per diluted share against $422 million or $0.81 per diluted share a year ago. For the year, the company reported sales of $108,465 million against $98,375 million a year ago. Operating profit was $3,137 million against $2,725 million a year ago. Net earnings before income tax expense were $2,649 million against $2,282 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to the company were $1,728 million or $3.44 per diluted share against $1,519 million or $2.90 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $4,185 million against $3,380 million a year ago. Payments for property and equipment, including payments for lease buyouts were $2,831 million against $2,330 million a year ago. Net total debt as at January 31, 2015, was 11,381 million against $10,894 million a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $ 5,293 million against $4,478 million a year ago. Adjusted operating income was $6,026 million against $5,109 million a year ago. Return on invested capital was 13.74% against 13.43% a year ago. For 2015, the company anticipates identical supermarket sales growth, excluding fuel, of approximately 3.0% to 4.0% for 2015.  This range takes into account the expectation of lower inflation during the year. Full-year net earnings for 2015 are expected to range from $3.80 to $3.90 per diluted share. This is consistent with the company's long-term net earnings per diluted share growth rate of 8 – 11%, growing off of 2014 adjusted earnings of $3.52 per diluted share. Shareholder return will be further enhanced by a dividend which is expected to increase over time. The company expects fuel margins to return to historical averages, a lower LIFO charge, and no comparable contributions to the pension and foundation; as a result, the company expects to achieve near the middle of the guidance range. The company expects capital investments, excluding mergers, acquisitions and purchases of leased facilities, to be in the $3.0 to $3.3 billion range for 2015.
