Metro Inc. Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended July 04, 2015; Provides Capex Guidance for Fourth Quarter of 2015

Metro Inc. reported consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended July 04, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $3,842.3 million against $3,622.1 million a year ago. Same-store sales continued to rise as well, coming in at 4.3% increase for the quarter, while internal measure, food basket inflation, was positive by 3.5%. Operating income before depreciation and amortization and associate's earnings was $277.6 million against $253.3 million a year ago. Net earnings were $163.5 million or $0.64 fully diluted per share against $144.5 million or $0.54 fully diluted per share a year ago. CapEx has ramped up in the third quarter. It's up from the 2 previous quarters. For nine months, the company reported sales of $9,389.9 million against $8,878.2 million a year ago. Operating income before depreciation and amortization and associate's earnings was $650.4 million against $599.5 million a year ago. Net earnings were $387.6 million or $1.50 fully diluted per share against $340.6 million or $1.25 fully diluted per share a year ago. Adjusted net earnings were $391.9 million or $1.52 adjusted fully diluted EPS against $345.3 million or $1.27 adjusted fully diluted EPS a year ago. Adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization and associate's earnings were $650.4 million against $599.5 million a year ago. The company expect that CapEx to ramp up in the fourth quarter. There are some delays in real estate projects. The timing is sometimes can be put off a little bit, but the projects are committed and the company will be investing in those stores. So $300 million is the guidance the company gave at the corporate level. And it typically equates the retail level because what merchants put into their stores, the company put into other CapEx investments at Metro. So $300 million is the net -- the number the company is still shooting for. The company might fall a bit short of that. But it's only a question of delays and it will be spent.
