Diedrich Coffee Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2010 Financial Results

IRVINE, Calif. /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ - IRVINE, Calif., April 19 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Diedrich Coffee, Inc. (Nasdaq: DDRX), a leading roaster and wholesaler of the world's finest coffees, reported financial results for the third quarter ended March 3, 2010.

Total revenue increased 45% to $25.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 from $17.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2009, led by a 55% or $8.7 million increase in K-Cup sales.

Gross margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 increased to 26.8% of total revenue as compared to 25.6% during the same period of last year. In addition to price increases taken during fiscal 2010, the improvement resulted from Diedrich Coffee's continuing ability to leverage fixed manufacturing costs over higher production volumes.

Net loss totaled $778,000 or $(0.14) per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, as compared to net income of $1,358,000 or $0.25 per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2009. Net loss in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 included approximately $1.6 million in merger-related costs and an increase of $2.1 million of non-cash stock compensation expense.

Adjusted net income (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $3.3 million or $0.41 per diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010, an improvement from an adjusted net income of $1.4 million or $0.25 per diluted share in the same quarter of the prior year. Adjusted net income represents net income or loss before merger related costs, non-cash stock compensation expense, severance expenses related to the departure of Diedrich Coffee's former CEO, J. Russell Phillips, loss 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 on December 8, 2009, Diedrich Coffee entered into a definitive agreement under which Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (Nasdaq: GMCR) ("GMCR") will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Diedrich Coffee in an all cash transaction valued at $35.00 per share or a total transaction value of approximately $290 million pursuant to a cash tender offer (the "Offer") by GMCR's wholly owned subsidiary, Pebbles Acquisition Sub, Inc. ("Acquisition Sub"), which is currently scheduled to expire on May 3, 2010, and upon completion of the Offer, Acquisition Sub will merge with and into Diedrich Coffee (the "Merger"). For more information, please see Diedrich Coffee's Schedule 14D-9 filed on December 11, 2009 and amendments thereto and other filings made by Diedrich Coffee 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 merger related costs, non-cash stock compensation expense, severance expenses related to a former CEO's departure, loss from discontinued operations and the timing of the fiscal 2009 accrual for management incentive compensation. Diedrich Coffee presents adjusted net income because it believes it to be a meaningful supplemental measure of performance in the evaluation of Diedrich Coffee's results of operations because it excludes amounts that Diedrich Coffee does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of Diedrich Coffee 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. Diedrich Coffee 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 Net 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.
