INDIANAPOLIS, // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- The Steak n Shake Company (NYSE: SNS) today announced its results for its second fiscal quarter 2009, which ended April 8, 2009.

Fiscal Second Quarter 2009 Results

Net earnings for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 were $2.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, contrasted to a net loss of ($2.8 million), or ($0.10) per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2008. Quarterly same-store sales increased 2.4% due to an increase in guest traffic of 7.8%, offset by a 5.4% contraction in the average guest check. Net sales decreased 0.7% from $189.3 million to $188.0 million in the current quarter because Steak n Shake operated 21 fewer company-owned restaurants following the closure and refranchising of certain units after the same period in the previous year.

At the end of the second quarter, cash and cash equivalents stood at $35.0 million. The revolving line of credit and senior note balances totaled $29.0 million at the end of the quarter.

In the current quarter, Steak n Shake operated 415 company-owned restaurants and a franchisee closed one restaurant, bringing the total number of franchised units to 74.
