Commenting on the Company's earnings, Robert P. Stiller, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Green Mountain Coffee said, "Our primary financial goal at Green Mountain Coffee this year has been to strengthen the Company's profitability. Green Mountain Coffee's performance represents a dramatic turnaround from where we were just a year ago. While we have benefited from lower green coffee prices, the earnings we reported today also reflect the tremendous effort throughout the Company to focus on building the brand in a manner that increases profits as well as sales. Another tangible example of the Company's bottom-line focus is our success in disposing of our retail store operation at a lower cost than we originally estimated, resulting in the $186,000 favorable adjustment for the quarter, and delivering an additional $0.05 per share in earnings to stockholders."
