Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Summary
Sales for the second quarter of 2013 increased 27.3% to NIS 84.4 million (US$ 23.3 million) compared to NIS 66.3 million (US$ 18.3 million) recorded in the second quarter of 2012. This increase was a result of growing demand from domestic and international customers, for quality kosher products. In Israel specifically, we continued to benefit from a shift in consumer behavior by cost conscious consumers who recognize our products as a viable alternative to the higher cost leading brands.
 
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2013 increased by 32.0% to NIS 21.8 million (US$ 6.0 million) compared to NIS 16.5 million (US$ 4.6 million) recorded in the second quarter of 2012. Second quarter gross margin was 25.9% compared to gross margin of 24.9% for the same period in 2012. The gross margin improvement was the result of a favorable revenue product mix during the quarter.
 
Willi-Food’s operating income for the second quarter of 2013 increased by 49.7% to NIS 8.3 million (US$ 2.3 million) compared to NIS 5.5 million (US$ 1.5 million) recorded in the second quarter of 2012. Selling expenses increased by 28.1% from the comparable quarter of 2012, primarily due to an increase in promotion expenses as well as vehicles and transport expenses, which increased due to the incremental increase in sales. Selling expenses as a percentage of sales increased in the second quarter of 2013 to 10.6% compared to 10.5% in the second quarter of 2012. General and administrative expenses increased by 15.9% from the second quarter of 2012, primarily due to an increase in management profit-related bonuses. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales decreased in the second quarter of 2013 to 5.5% from 6.0% in the second quarter of 2012.
 
Willi-Food’s income before taxes for the second quarter of 2013 increased by 91.6% to NIS 10.4 million (US$ 2.9 million) compared to NIS 5.4 million (US$ 1.5 million) recorded in the second quarter of 2012.
 
 
 

 
 
Willi-Food's net income in the second quarter of 2013 increased by 90.1% to NIS 7.8 million (US$ 2.2 million), or NIS 0.60 (US$ 0.17) per share, from NIS 4.1 million (US$ 1.1 million), or NIS 0.32 (US$ 0.09) per share, recorded in the second quarter of 2012.
 
Willi-Food ended the second quarter of 2013 with NIS 209.1 million (US$ 57.8 million) in cash and securities net from short-term debt. Net cash from operating activities for 2013 second quarter was NIS 12.2 million (US$ 3.4 million). Willi-Food's shareholders' equity at the end of June 2013 was NIS 349.9 million (US$ 96.7 million).

·
Sales increased 25.0% to NIS 175.0 million (US$ 48.4 million);

Six-Month Results

Willi-Food’s sales for the six-month period ending June 30, 2013 increased by 25.0% to NIS 175.0 million (US$ 48.4 million) compared to sales of NIS 140.0 million (US$ 38.7 million) in the first half of 2012.

Business Outlook

Mr. Zwi Williger, Chairman of Willi-Food commented, “We are very pleased to report another strong quarter with organic sales growth of 27 percent and net income growth of 90 percent as our customer base continues to expand and market demand for our products continues to increase. Following the national protests in 2011 against the rising prices of food products, our customer base and the demand for our products increased due to the fact that customers realized that they can obtain food products from us, in the same or better quality than those of the leading brands in the market, at more affordable prices. Our financial results have significantly improved over the last four quarters as a direct result of our strategy to organically grow our customer base and product line. Moving forward, we intend to continue to leverage market demand in order to maximize our revenues and expand margins. We intend to reinvest in the development of the company in order to maximize profitability and increase long-term value for our shareholders.”
