for those who listen to conference call, I believe these are the bullet points that are the tell tale on KKD progress. Please keep in mind KKD was projected at a growth rate of 157% from Q1 2012 to Q4 2012 (source: Ameritrade anayliss projection). As I mention before KKD has been on a roll from Q1 to Q3, each earnings report was better than the one before. Now were in the last part of the above growth rate ........Q4.
KKD will need to beat.........
revenues of $107.1 Mil
Same store sales of 6.8%
Operating income of $9.2 Mil
Adj net income of $8.3 Mil or .12/share ( I believe this is the important one)
Operating cash of $15
(source: KKD Q3 earnings report)
Hopefully I've given you some food for thought, highlight in which to focus on, let's face it these reports can be long and boring with a lot of figures that make you head swim and the only way you know it was a good report is during Q&A portion the anayliss says "Nice Report"
