Play It Again Parent Sees Net Nearly Halved for 2005

Winmark Corporation saw net income for the year ended December 31, 2005 of $2.1 million or 33 cents per share diluted, down 48.6% from net income of $4.1 million or 63 cents per share, in 2004. The fourth quarter 2005 net loss was ($68,600), or (1 cent) per share diluted, compared to net income of $980,100, or 15 cents per share diluted, for the same period last year. Revenues for the year were $26.6 million, down 2.2% from $27.2 million in 2004.

“2005 was a year where we continued to improve our franchising business and build the leasing sales and operations infrastructure to support future growth. Our fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by two items: an impairment charge related to Winmark's investment in eFrame, LLC of $937,610, or 8 cents per share and a stock option compensation charge of approximately $420,000 or 4 cents per share,” stated John Morgan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “2006 will be the first full year that both our franchise and leasing businesses will be firmly in place.”
