Winmark Corporation Announces Year End Results

Published

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Winmark Corporation (Nasdaq: WINA) announced today net income for the year ended December 30, 2023 of $40,178,100 or $11.04 per share diluted compared to net income of $39,424,900 or $10.97 per share diluted in 2022. The fourth quarter 2023 net income was $9,716,800 or $2.64 per share diluted, compared to net income of $10,176,600 or $2.86 per share diluted, for the same period last year. Revenues for the year ended December 30, 2023 were $83,243,500, up from $81,410,800 in 2022. 2023 results were impacted by the Company’s decision in May 2021 to run-off its leasing portfolio. Additionally, financial performance for the fourth quarter and full year 2022 included an extra week of operations due to the Company’s fiscal year ending on the last Saturday of December.

“Our 2023 results reflected positive performance by our franchise partners; however, growth was lower in the second half of the year,” commented Brett D. Heffes, Chair and Chief Executive Officer.

Winmark - the Resale Company®, is a nationally recognized franchisor focused on sustainability and small business formation. We champion and guide entrepreneurs interested in operating one of our award winning resale franchises: Plato’s Closet®, Once Upon A Child®, Play It Again Sports®, Style Encore® and Music Go Round®. At December 30, 2023, there were 1,319 franchises in operation and over 2,800 available territories. An additional 71 franchises have been awarded but are not open.
