Bill The Butcher Inc

BILB | 7/22/2011 10:46:57 AM

SEATTLE, Jul 22, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --

Bill the Butcher (OTCBB:BILB), the return of the neighborhood butcher shop, announced third quarter results.

Sales for the quarter ended May 31, 2011 were $496,000 and gross profit increased to $186,000 or approximately 38% of sales. General and administrative expenses decreased from $238,000 during the quarter ended May 31, 2011, or 48% of sales, compared to $255,000, or 50% of sales during the comparative prior year.

Total sales since inception exceeded $3 million. Two stores are currently grossing well above the expected annual store plan, or the sales goal of $500,000 (with the highest hitting $715,000), and the remaining four missing plan by an average of only $40,000. Sales in the summer and fall in the previous year were up 70% over the spring months and management is seeing the same positive trend this year. Management anticipates all stores exceeding plan in the future and continued margin improvements.


As a result of the above, our net loss and basic and diluted loss per common share for the quarter was $719,000 and $(0.03) per share, respectively.

  --  Signed leases and began construction for stores 7 and 8
