Winmark Corporation Announces Year End Results

MINNEAPOLIS - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Feb. 27, 2013 - Winmark Corporation (Nasdaq: WINA) announced today net income for the year ended December 29, 2012 of $12,937,900 or $2.47 per share diluted, compared to net income of $14,095,000 or $2.69 per share diluted, in 2011. The fourth quarter 2012 net income was $1,758,000 or $.34 per share diluted, compared to net income of $4,185,000 or $.80 per share diluted, for the same period last year. Revenues for the year ended December 29, 2012 were $51,943,100, up from $51,335,000 in 2011. In addition, as previously disclosed, the company’s results were negatively impacted by a $2.5 million after-tax earnings charge, or $0.47 per share, in the fourth quarter related to the impairment of its investments in both Tomsten, Inc. (d/b/a Archiver’s) and BridgeFunds, LLC.

John L. Morgan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our 2012 results continued to demonstrate the strength of our franchising business, with solid growth in royalties and new franchise agreements. Our leasing business, while exhibiting a modest increase in profitability, achieved more meaningful growth in the portfolio of customers and equipment that, along with the development of our sales staff, positions us well for continued long-term success.”

“We are excited about our prospects for 2013 and look forward to introducing our Style EncoreTM concept to the market place as well as the continued execution of our business model,” Mr. Morgan added.

Winmark Corporation creates, supports and finances business. At December 29, 2012, there were 968 franchises in operation under the brands Plato's Closet®, Play It Again Sports®, Once Upon A Child®, and Music Go Round®. An additional 65 retail franchises have been awarded but are not open. In addition, at December 29, 2012, the Company had a lease portfolio equal to $36.2 million.
