Casey’s Issues Business Update Ahead of Stephens NDR – Yahoo Finance

ANKENY, Iowa, April 21, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Casey’s General Stores, Inc. ("Casey’s" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: CASY), a leading convenience store chain in the United States, today announced that it will be participating in a non-deal roadshow ("NDR") with Stephens on April 21, 2022.
In advance of the NDR, the Company provides the following business update.
Casey’s business continues to perform well, and we remain on track for record fourth quarter diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2022. Our fourth quarter to date experience is as follows:
Fuel same-store gallons sold have been slightly higher than prior year, between flat to up low-single digits. Fuel margins have been in the higher 30s in terms of cents per gallon.
Inside same-store sales volumes have been up mid-single digits. Inside margins have been impacted, in-part, by higher cheese costs, which have averaged $2.24 per pound in the fourth quarter versus $1.93 per pound in the prior year.
Operating expenses are trending above our previous guidance of 11-13% and are up approximately mid-teens. These are being impacted, in-part, by higher credit card fees related to higher retail fuel prices which are up approximately 39% versus the prior year.
Interest expense has been modestly impacted by non-cash charges associated with the partial prepayment of certain variable rate debt due to strong free cash flow generation.
