On September 13, 2012 Sobeys parent Empire Company Limited released results for the first quarter of the 2013 fiscal year. The newly acquired 236 Shell gas stations added just over $250 million to total revenue which is now $4.56 billion (from $4.15B in 1Q2012). Excluding new revenue stream from gas retailing Empire Company revenue is up +3.5% --> $4.3 billion (Canadian dollars). Because the new gas stations are part of the Sobeys division, Sobey's revenue contribution to the entire company is now at 98.9% ($4.51b / $4.56b) up from last year.
Empire-Company profited 22.08% more --> $108.90 million (from $89.2 million) or $1.60 a share (from $1.31). Excluding the newly acquired gas stations / convenience locations, Sobeys revenue is up +$145.8m.
Adjusted: Empire-Sobeys combined net income is up +21.6% --> $1.52/share (from $1.25).
