Whole Foods Market Reports Second Quarter 2009 Results
Date:5/13/2009

ts as a percentage of sales. Direct store expenses improved 38 basis points to 26.2% of sales. This included a 30 basis point improvement in workers' compensation costs as a percentage of sales driven by an unusually low number of claims and average cost per claim in the quarter. In addition, for the second consecutive quarter, the Company generated an improvement in wages as a percentage of sales. This improvement partially offset increases in health care and depreciation as a percentage of sales. As a result, store contribution improved 22 basis points to 8.5% of sales, excluding the asset impairment charge.

For stores in the identical store base, gross profit improved 16 basis points to 35.0% of sales, and direct store expenses improved 69 basis points to 25.9% of sales. As a result, store contribution improved 85 basis points to 9.1% of sales.

G&A expenses improved 57 basis points to 3.1% of sales due to the elimination of G&A expenses at the former Wild Oats home office in Boulder, along with the cost-containment measures implemented at the Company's global and regional offices. Results in the current quarter included $2.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, of FTC-related legal costs. Excluding these costs, G&A expenses were 2.9% of sales.
