Diedrich Coffee Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2010 Financial Results

IRVINE, Calif. // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Diedrich Coffee, Inc. (Nasdaq: DDRX), a leading roaster and wholesaler of the world's finest coffees, reported financial results for the first quarter ended September 16, 2009.

Total revenue increased 52% to $15.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 from $10.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2009, led by a 66% or $5.8 million increase in Keurig K-Cup sales.

Gross margin in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 increased to 26% of total revenue as compared to 21% during the same period last year. In addition to price increases taken during fiscal 2009, the improvement was due primarily to higher machine utilization, lower temporary help and overtime, the reduction of scrap and waste due to improved inventory controls, lower outbound freight costs and the ability to leverage our fixed manufacturing costs over higher production volumes.

Net income totaled $571,000 or $0.07 per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2010, an improvement from a net loss of $1.8 million or $(0.33) per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2009.

Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $571,000 or $0.07 per diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, an improvement from an adjusted net loss of $1.6 million or $(0.30) per basic and diluted share in the same quarter of the prior year. Adjusted net income represents net income or loss before the income contribution from discontinued operations and the timing of the fiscal 2009 accrual for management incentive compensation (see important discussion about the presentation of non-GAAP financial information below, including a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure).

As announced yesterday, Diedrich entered into a definitive agreement under which Peet's Coffee & Tea, Inc. will acquire Diedrich in a cash-and-stock transaction valued at $26.00 per share or a total transaction value of approximately $213 million. For more information, please see Diedrich's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 16, 2009 filed on November 2, 2009 and other filings made by Diedrich with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

About Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted net income (loss) is not a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Diedrich Coffee defines adjusted net income as net income/(loss) before the income contribution from discontinued operations. The company presents adjusted net income because it believes it to be a meaningful supplemental measure of performance in the evaluation of the company's results of operations because it excludes amounts that the company does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the company and presents a measure of earnings that facilitates a comparison of results from one period to results from another period on a more consistent basis. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. It may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Diedrich Coffee nor is it intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider adjusted net income in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of results as reported under GAAP. The company strongly encourages investors to review its financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. See "Reconciliation of Adjusted Net Income (Loss) to GAAP Income (Loss)" below for further information on this non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) to GAAP net income (loss) for the periods indicated.
