CASEY’S GENERAL STORES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars in Thousands, Except Share and Per Share Amounts)
 

1.    Presentation of Financial Statements
Casey’s General Stores, Inc. and its subsidiaries (hereinafter referred to as the "Company" or "Casey’s") operate 2,454 convenience stores in 16 states, primarily in the Midwest. Many of the stores are located in smaller communities, often with populations of less than 5,000.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts and transactions of Casey's General Stores, Inc. and its direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

2.    Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position as of July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022, the results of operations for the three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021, and shareholders' equity and cash flows for the three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021. Although management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, it is suggested that these interim condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company’s most recent audited financial statements and notes thereto. See the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2022 for our consideration of new accounting pronouncements.

3.    Revenue and Cost of Goods Sold
The Company recognizes retail sales of fuel, grocery and general merchandise, prepared food and dispensed beverage and other revenue at the time of the sale to the guest. Sales taxes collected from guests and remitted to the government are recorded on a net basis in the condensed consolidated financial statements.
A portion of revenue from sales that include a redeemable digital box top coupon or points under our Casey’s Rewards program is deferred. The deferred portion of the sale represents the value of the estimated future redemption of the digital box top coupon or points. The amounts related to digital box top coupons and points are deferred until their redemption or expiration. Revenue related to the digital box top coupons and points issued is expected to be recognized less than one year from the original sale to the guest. As of July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022, the Company recognized a contract liability of $45,317 and $41,577, respectively, related to the outstanding digital box top coupons and Casey's Rewards points, which is included in accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Gift card related revenue is recognized as the gift cards are used by the guest. Gift card breakage revenue is recognized based on the estimated gift card breakage rate over the pro rata usage of the card. As of July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022, the Company recognized a liability of $15,982 and $15,509, respectively, related to outstanding gift cards, which is included in accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The Company often receives vendor allowances on the basis of quantitative contract terms that vary by product and vendor or directly on the basis of purchases made. Vendor allowances include rebates and other funds received from vendors to promote their products. These amounts are recognized in the period earned based on the applicable rebate agreement. Reimbursements of an operating expense (e.g., advertising) are recorded as reductions of the related expense.
Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) are treated as a reduction in cost of goods sold in the period the Company commits to a price and agrees to sell the RIN.
9

The Company includes in cost of goods sold the costs incurred to acquire fuel and merchandise, including excise taxes, less vendor allowances and rebates and RINs. Warehousing costs are recorded within operating expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of income.

4.    Long-Term Debt and Finance Lease Obligations, Lines of Credit and Fair Value Disclosure
The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt (including current maturities) is estimated based on the current rates offered to the Company for debt of the same or similar issuances. The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt was approximately $1,509,000 and $1,508,000 at July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022, respectively. The fair value calculated excludes finance lease obligations of $73,890 and $74,234 outstanding at July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022, respectively, which are grouped with long-term debt on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Revolving Facility
The Company has a committed unsecured revolving credit facility in the aggregate principal amount of $450,000 (the "Revolving Facility"). The maturity date for the Revolving Facility is January 11, 2024. Amounts borrowed under the Revolving Facility bear interest at variable rates based upon, at the Company’s option, either: (a) the LIBO Rate adjusted for statutory reserve requirements (but no less than 0.50%), plus a margin ranging from 1.05% to 1.85%; or (b) an alternate base rate, which is the higher of (i) the prime rate announced by the Administrative Agent, (ii) the federal funds rate plus 1/2 of 1.00%, and (iii) the one-month LIBO Rate plus 1.00%, plus a margin ranging from 0.05% to 0.85%. The Revolving Facility also carries a facility fee of 0.20% to 0.40% per annum. The applicable margins and facility fee are dependent upon the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio, as calculated as set forth in the Revolving Facility's underlying credit agreement. The Company had $0 outstanding under the Revolving Facility at July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022.
Bank Line
The Company has an additional unsecured bank line of credit (the "Bank Line") with availability up to $25,000. The $25,000 availability under the Bank Line is encumbered by letters of credits totaling $5,924. The Bank Line bears interest at a variable rate subject to change from time to time based on changes in an independent index referred to in the Bank Line as the Federal Funds Offered Rate (the “Index”). There was $0 outstanding under the Bank Line at July 31, 2022 and April 30, 2022. The Bank Line is due upon demand.

5.    Compensation Related Costs and Share Based Payments
The 2018 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”), was approved by the Company's shareholders on September 5, 2018 ("the "2018 Plan Effective Date").
Awards under the 2018 Plan may take the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units and other equity-based and equity-related awards. Each share issued pursuant to a stock option and each share with respect to which a stock-settled stock appreciation right is exercised (regardless of the number of shares actually delivered) is counted as one share against the maximum limit under the 2018 Plan, and each share issued pursuant to an award of restricted stock or restricted stock units is counted as two shares against the maximum limit. Restricted stock is transferred immediately upon grant (and may be subject to a holding period), whereas restricted stock units have a vesting period that must expire, and in some cases performance or market conditions that must be satisfied before the stock is transferred. At July 31, 2022, there were 1,630,928 shares available for grant under the 2018 Plan.
We account for share-based compensation by estimating the fair value of time-based and performance-based restricted stock unit awards using the closing price of a share of our common stock on the date of grant. For market-based awards we use a Monte Carlo approach to estimate the value of the awards, which simulates the prices of the Company’s and each member of the performance peer groups' common stock price at the end of the relevant performance period, taking into account volatility and the specifics surrounding each total shareholder return metric under the relevant plan. We recognize these amounts as an operating expense in our condensed consolidated statements of income ratably over the requisite service period using the straight-line method, as adjusted for certain retirement provisions, and updated estimates of performance-based awards. All awards have been granted at no cost to the grantee and/or non-employee member of the Board.
Information concerning the unvested restricted stock units under the 2018 Plan is presented in the following table:
10

Unvested at April 30, 2022526,394 
Granted151,840 
Vested(215,988)
Forfeited(2,072)
Performance Award Adjustments62,028 
Unvested at July 31, 2022522,202 
The above awards reflect (a) long-term incentive compensation program grants for fiscal 2021 through 2023, which include a mix of time-based restricted stock units and performance-based restricted stock units (subject to three-year cumulative net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and three-year average return on invested capital ("ROIC"), with further potential adjustments for three-year relative total shareholder return ("TSR")) (b) certain “make-whole” and sign-on grants, which include a mix of time-based restricted stock units and performance-based restricted stock units subject to EBITDA and ROIC, with further potential adjustments for TSR (c) a special strategic grant which, upon grant, included performance-based restricted stock units subject to the performance of the Company’s e-commerce and loyalty platforms (which performance period has been completed, and are now subject to time-based vesting), (d) special performance grants which include time-based restricted stock units, and (e) non-employee director equity awards, which include time-based restricted stock units.
Total compensation costs recorded for employees and non-employee directors for the three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, were $16,185 and $8,623, related entirely to restricted stock unit awards. As of July 31, 2022, there was $61,052 of unrecognized compensation costs related to restricted stock units which are expected to be recognized through fiscal 2026. No stock option awards have been granted under the 2018 Plan.

6.    Commitments and Contingencies
From time to time we may be involved in legal or administrative proceedings or investigations arising from the conduct of our business operations, including, but not limited to, contractual or other general business disputes; employment, personnel, or accessibility matters; personal injury and property damage claims; claims by federal, state, and local regulatory authorities relating to the sale of products pursuant to licenses and permits issued by those authorities; and, other claims or proceedings. Claims for damages in those actions may be substantial. While the outcome of such litigation, proceedings, investigations, or claims is never certain, it is our opinion, after taking into consideration legal counsel’s assessment and the availability of insurance proceeds and other collateral sources to cover potential losses, that the ultimate disposition of such matters currently pending or threatened, individually or cumulatively, will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
The Company is named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, titled McColley v. Casey’s General Stores, Inc., in which the plaintiff alleges that the Company misclassified its Store Managers as exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The complaint seeks unpaid wages, liquidated damages and attorneys’ fees for the plaintiff and all similarly situated Store Managers who worked at the Company from February 16, 2015 to the present. On March 31, 2021, the Court granted conditional certification, and to-date, approximately 2,001 current and/or former Store Managers (representing less than 1/3 of those eligible) have opted to participate in the lawsuit. The Company believes that adequate provisions have been made for probable losses related to this matter, and that those, and the reasonably possible losses in excess of amounts accrued, where such range of loss can be estimated, are not material to the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows. The Company believes that its Store Managers are properly classified as exempt employees under the FLSA and it intends to continue to vigorously defend the matter.
We have entered into various purchase agreements related to our fuel supply, which include varying volume commitments. Prices included in the purchase agreements are indexed to market prices. While volume commitments are included in the contracts, we do not have a history of incurring material penalties related to these provisions. These contracts are not accounted for as derivatives as they meet the normal purchases exclusion under derivative accounting.
We have entered into forward contracts for cheese in order to fix the price per pound for a portion of our expected supply. These contracts are not accounted for as derivatives as they meet the normal purchases exclusion under derivative accounting.

7.    Unrecognized Tax Benefits
The total amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits was $10,259 at April 30, 2022. At July 31, 2022, gross unrecognized tax benefits were $11,309. If this unrecognized tax benefit were ultimately recognized, $8,934 is the
11

amount that would impact our effective tax rate. The total amount of accrued interest and penalties for such unrecognized tax benefits was $424 at July 31, 2022, and $371 at April 30, 2022. Net interest and penalties included in income tax expense for the three months ended July 31, 2022, was a net expense of $53 and a net expense of $51 for the same period in 2021.
A number of years may elapse before an uncertain tax position is audited and ultimately settled. It is difficult to predict the ultimate outcome or the timing of resolution for uncertain tax positions. It is reasonably possible that the amount of unrecognized tax benefits could significantly increase or decrease within the next twelve months. These changes could result from the expiration of the statute of limitations, examinations or other unforeseen circumstances. The Company has no ongoing federal or state income tax examinations. At this time, the Company’s best estimate of the reasonably possible change in the amount of the gross unrecognized tax benefits is a decrease of $2,100 during the next twelve months mainly due to the expiration of certain statute of limitations.
The federal statute of limitations remains open for the tax years 2018 and forward. Tax years 2013 and forward are subject to audit by state tax authorities depending on open statute of limitations waivers and the tax code of each state.

8.    Segment Reporting
As of July 31, 2022, we operated 2,454 stores in 16 states. Our convenience stores offer a broad selection of merchandise, fuel and other products and services designed to appeal to the convenience needs of our guests. We manage the business on the basis of one operating segment. Our stores sell similar products and services, and use similar processes to sell those products and services directly to the general public. We make specific disclosures concerning the three broad merchandise categories of fuel, grocery and general merchandise, and prepared food and dispensed beverage because it allows us to more effectively discuss trends and operational programs within our business and industry. Although we can separate revenues and cost of goods sold within these categories (and further sub-categories), the operating expenses associated with operating a store that sells these products are not separable by these categories.

Item 2.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (Dollars in Thousands).
Overview
Casey’s and its direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries operate convenience stores primarily under the names "Casey’s" and “Casey’s General Store” (collectively, with the stores below referenced as "GoodStop" or "Bucky's", as the "Company" or “Stores”) throughout 16 states, over half of which are located in Iowa, Missouri and Illinois. As of July 31, 2022, there were a total of 2,454 stores in operation.
All convenience stores carry a broad selection of food (including freshly prepared foods such as pizza, donuts, and sandwiches), beverages, tobacco and nicotine products, health and beauty aids, automotive products, and other nonfood items. In addition, all but four offer fuel for sale on a self-service basis. The Company derives its revenue primarily from the retail sale of fuel and the products offered in its stores. As of July 31, 2022, 203 store locations offered car washes.
During the prior fiscal year, the Company introduced certain stores branded or rebranded as "GoodStop (by Casey’s)". Similar to most of our store footprint, the "GoodStop" locations offer fuel for sale on a self-serve basis, and a broad selection of snacks, drinks, tobacco products, and other essentials. However, such locations typically do not have a kitchen and have limited prepared food offerings. As of July 31, 2022, 46 stores operate under the "GoodStop" brand.
Additionally, the Company is temporarily operating certain locations acquired from Buchanan Energy in the prior year under the name, "Bucky's." The Company is in the process of transitioning all "Bucky's" locations to either the "Casey's" or "GoodStop" brand. The Company also operates two stores selling primarily tobacco products, one grocery store, and one liquor store.
The Company acquired a dealer network from Buchanan Energy during the 2022 fiscal year. As of July 31, 2022, there were 75 dealer locations where Casey’s manages fuel wholesale supply agreements to these stores. These locations are not operated by Casey's. Approximately 2% of total revenue for the three-months ended July 31, 2022 relates to this dealer network.
Approximately 51% of our stores were opened in areas with populations of fewer than 5,000 persons, while approximately 25% of all stores were opened in communities with populations exceeding 20,000 persons. The Company operates three distribution centers (in Ankeny, Iowa adjacent to our corporate headquarters, which we refer to as our Store Support Center, in Terre Haute, Indiana, and in Joplin, Missouri) from which certain grocery and general merchandise and prepared food and dispensed beverage items are supplied to our stores. As of July 31, 2022, the Company leased a combination of land and/or building at 114 locations.
The Company’s business is seasonal, and generally experiences higher sales and profitability during the first and second fiscal quarters (May-October), when guests tend to purchase greater quantities of fuel and certain convenience items such as beer, sports drinks, water, soft drinks and ice.
The Company reported diluted earnings per common share of $4.09 for the first quarter of fiscal 2023. For the same quarter a year-ago, diluted earnings per common share was $3.19.

COVID-19 and Related Impacts
Throughout the last two years, the Company has continued to adapt to the challenges caused or contributed to by COVID-19 and its new and unpredictable variants. The ongoing challenges include, but are not limited to, a stressed labor market, as it became increasingly challenging to find, hire and retain store Team Members. In response, the Company held two large-scale hiring events during the prior fiscal year, each of which led to the onboarding of a significant number of Team Members to support our stores. In addition, the Company saw increasing wage pressure, as wages across the convenience store, restaurant and retail industries in general continued to rise, which has directly contributed to increased operating expenses. The Company expects to see these labor challenges continue throughout the 2023 fiscal year. COVID-19 also continues to pressure
13

our supply chain, and the supply chains of our suppliers. While the Company has been successful in hiring and retaining drivers, some supplier networks have been challenged by a lack of drivers, which in some cases has led to delays in deliveries to our distribution centers and stores. Other supply chain challenges have included the unavailability of certain products from our suppliers, which has led to these products being out of stock or not available at all. The Company also expects these issues to continue throughout the 2023 fiscal year.
The initial onset of COVID-19 in early 2020 caused a significant decrease in store traffic across our entire footprint. While store traffic has markedly increased as the economy has reopened over the past two or so years, the Company has not seen a full return to store traffic levels experienced prior to the pandemic. The Company believes this is largely contributed to the increased prevalence and acceptance across all industries of working from home, a trend which the Company expects to continue into the foreseeable future. While COVID-19 will continue to bring challenges and uncertainty to our operating environment, we believe that our resilient business model and the strength of our brand and balance sheet position us well to navigate the pandemic and its impacts.
Fuel Volatility
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the price of crude oil, and in turn the wholesale cost of fuel, has been volatile. Initially, at the outset of the pandemic, oil and fuel prices fell dramatically; however, as the economy in general began to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, prices began to modestly increase over time. More recently, during the end of the Company’s 2022 fiscal year, oil and fuel prices saw a quick and dramatic increase, in part, as a result of the conflict in Ukraine, as well as other macroeconomic conditions, which also directly impacts the retail price of fuel that we sell at our stores. The increased oil and fuel prices continued into the first quarter of fiscal 2023. Beginning in the middle of June and continuing through the end of the quarter, oil and fuel prices have begun to decrease, but still remain elevated compared to historical levels. In part as a result of the increases in the retail price of fuel, we saw an overall reduction in same-store fuel gallons sold during the quarter, compared to the prior year.
In addition, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company, and the fuel industry as a whole, has experienced historically high average revenue less cost of goods sold per gallon (excluding depreciation and amortization and credit card fees). Although this has remained relatively consistent since that time, on a longer-term basis, this metric can fluctuate significantly, and sometimes unpredictably, in the short-term. While the Company believes that its average revenue less cost of goods sold per gallon (excluding depreciation and amortization and credit card fees) will remain elevated from pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels for the foreseeable future, it is possible that increased oil and fuel prices, rising interest rates, macroeconomic conditions and/or continuing conflicts or disruptions involving oil producing countries may materially impact the performance of this metric.
Electric Vehicles and Renewable Fuels
Casey's is in the early stages of developing a more robust electric vehicle ("EV") strategy and our management team remains committed to understanding if and how the increase demand for, and usage of, EVs impacts consumer behavior across our store footprint and beyond. The Company has installed 126 charging stations at 27 stores, across 10 states. Our current implementation strategy is designed to selectively install charging stations in locations within our footprint where we see higher levels of consumer EV usage. To date, consumer EV demand within our Midwest footprint has been comparatively lower than the levels along the coasts. As EV demand from our guests increases, we are prepared to integrate charging station options at our nearby stores.
The Company also remains committed to offering renewable fuel options at our stores. Currently, 100% of our stores offer fuel with at least 10% of blended ethanol and 44% of our stores offer biodiesel. Every new store has the capability to sell higher blended ethanol, and we aim to continue growing sales of renewable fuels throughout our footprint.
Same-Store Sales
Same-store sales is a common metric used in the convenience store industry. We define same-store sales as the total sales increase (or decrease) for stores open during the full time of both periods being presented. When comparing data, the store must be open for each entire fiscal period being compared. Remodeled stores that remained open or were closed for just a very brief period of time (i.e., less than a week) during the period being compared remain in the same-store sales comparison. If a store is replaced, either at the same location (i.e., razed and rebuilt) or relocated to a new location, it is removed from the comparison until the new store has been open for each entire period being compared. Newly constructed and acquired stores do not enter the calculation until they are open for each entire period being compared.
The first quarter results reflected a 2.3% decrease in same-store fuel gallons sold, with an average fuel revenue less related cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) of 44.7 cents per gallon, compared to 35.1 cents per gallon in the same quarter a year ago. Same-store gallons sold were negatively impacted by higher fuel prices. The Company sold 10.7 million renewable fuel credits for $17.7 million during the quarter, compared to the sale of 11.3 million renewable fuel credits in the first quarter of the prior year, which generated $18.7 million.
14

Same-store sales of grocery and general merchandise increased 5.5% and prepared food and dispensed beverage increased 8.4% during the quarter. The increase in grocery and general merchandise same-store sales was primarily due to stronger sales of packaged beverages and grocery items, such as salty snacks and candy. The increase in prepared food and dispensed beverage same-store sales was attributable to improved sales in pizza slices, as well as breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Both categories were also impacted favorably by strategic retail price adjustments.

Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased by $1,272,650 (40.0%) over the comparable period in fiscal 2022. Total revenues were impacted favorably by operating 74 more stores than a year ago, elevated retail fuel prices, and strategic retail price adjustments. Retail fuel sales increased by $1,129,187 (57.4%) as the average retail price per gallon increased 52.4%, and the number of gallons sold increased by 21,933 (3.3%). During this same period, retail sales of grocery and general merchandise increased by $87,579 (10.5%), due to strong sales of packaged beverages, salty snacks, and candy. Prepared food and dispensed beverage sales increased by $35,113 (11.4%), due to increased sales of pizza slices, as well as breakfast sandwiches and burritos.
The other revenue category historically has primarily consisted of lottery, which is presented net of applicable costs, and car wash. As a result of the Buchanan Energy acquisition in the prior year, we acquired a dealer network where Casey’s manages fuel wholesale supply agreements to these stores. The activity related to this dealer network is included in the other category and is presented gross of applicable costs. Other revenues increased $20,771 (29.3%) for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared to the prior year, primarily attributable to the dealer network. The increase in dealer network revenue was due to the higher wholesale price of fuel.
Revenue less cost of goods sold (excluding depreciation and amortization) was 18.8% of revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to 22.7% for the comparable period in the prior year. Fuel revenue less related cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) was 10.0% of fuel revenue during the first quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to 11.9% in the first quarter of the prior year, largely attributable to higher average retail price of fuel per gallon. Revenue per gallon less cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) per gallon increased to 44.7 cents in the first quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to 35.1 cents for the comparable period in the prior year, given the favorable environment due to falling wholesale costs in the second half of the quarter.
Grocery and general merchandise revenue less related cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) increased to 33.9% of revenue, from 33.0% of revenue for the comparable period in the prior year. The current year percentage was positively impacted by joint strategic business planning with vendor partners and strategic retail price adjustments. Prepared food and dispensed beverage revenue less related cost of goods sold (exclusive of depreciation and amortization) decreased to 55.6% of revenue, compared to 61.0% of revenue for the comparable period in the prior year, primarily due to higher ingredient costs, notably cheese, which was partially offset by retail price adjustments.
15

Operating expenses increased $64,343 (13.4%) in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 from the comparable period in the prior year. Approximately 4% of the increase is due to operating 74 more stores than prior year. Approximately 3% of the change is due to an increase in same-store credit card fees from higher retail fuel prices and 2% is due to higher long-term incentive compensation. Same-store operating expense excluding credit card fees was up 3%, impacted favorably by a 2% reduction in same-store labor hours.
Depreciation and amortization expense increased by 0.5% to $76,295 in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 from $75,888. The increase was primarily due to operating 74 more stores than a year ago and capital expenditures during the previous twelve months, offset by a decrease in accelerated depreciation, which was recorded in the prior year on equipment replaced in remodels.
The effective tax rate increased to 24.6% in the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared to 23.3% in the same period of fiscal 2022. The increase in the effective tax rate was driven by a decrease in excess tax benefits recognized on share-based awards (200 basis points) and a one-time benefit in the prior year from adjusting the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities for state law changes enacted during the quarter (100 basis points). The effect of these unfavorable items was partially offset by a one-time expense in the prior year to update the state deferred tax rate following the Buchanan Energy and Circle K transactions (200 basis points).
Net income increased by $33,773 (28.3%) to $152,932 from $119,159 in the comparable period in the prior year. The increase in net income was primarily attributable to increased fuel and merchandise contribution, offset by higher operating expenses driven primarily from operating 74 more stores than a year ago and an increase in credit card fees primarily due to the record high retail price of fuel.
Use of Non-GAAP Measures
We define EBITDA as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by excluding the gain or loss on disposal of assets as well as impairment charges. Neither EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA are considered GAAP measures, and should not be considered as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating activities or other income or cash flow statement data. These measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors in evaluating our operating performance because securities analysts and other interested parties use such calculations as a measure of financial performance and debt service capabilities, and they are regularly used by management for internal purposes including our capital budgeting process, evaluating acquisition targets, assessing performance, and awarding incentive compensation.
Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. It therefore may not be possible to compare our use of these non-GAAP financial measures with those used by other companies.
The following table contains a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended July 31, 2022 and 2021:
 Three months ended
 July 31, 2022July 31, 2021
Net income$152,932 $119,159

Loss (gain) on disposal of assets and impairment charges230 (1,770)
Adjusted EBITDA$293,209 $243,189 
For the three months ended July 31, 2022, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA increased 19.6% and 20.6%, respectively, when compared to the same period a year ago. The increases in EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are primarily attributable to increased fuel and merchandise contribution, offset by higher operating expenses driven primarily from operating 74 more stores than a year ago and an increase in credit card fees primarily due to the record high retail price of fuel.

Critical Accounting Policies
Critical accounting policies are those accounting policies that management believes are important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company's critical accounting policies are described in the Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2022, and such discussion is incorporated herein by reference. There have been no changes to these policies in the three months ended July 31, 2022.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Due to the nature of the Company’s business, cash provided by operations is the Company’s primary source of liquidity. The Company finances its inventory purchases primarily from normal trade credit aided by the relatively rapid turnover of inventory. This turnover allows the Company to conduct its operations without large amounts of cash and working capital. As of July 31, 2022, the Company’s ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 0.96 to 1. The ratio at July 31, 2021 and April 30, 2022 was 0.91 to 1 and 0.80 to 1, respectively. The increase in the ratio from the prior year is primarily attributable to an increase in cash and cash equivalents due to strong free cash flows.
Management believes that the availability under the Bank Line of approximately $19,000 and the Revolving Facility of $450,000, combined with the current cash and cash equivalents and the future cash flow from operations will be sufficient to satisfy the working capital needs of our business.
Net cash provided by operations increased $34,647 (14.3%) in the three months ended July 31, 2022 from the comparable period in the prior year, primarily due to an increase in net income. Cash used in investing in the three months ended July 31, 2022 decreased $566,219 over prior year, due primarily to cash paid for the acquisition of Buchanan Energy for $571,725, and 48 Circle K stores for $41,416 in the prior year. Cash used in financing decreased $309,763, primarily due to the $300,000 draw on the Term Loan Facilities in the prior year.
Purchases of property and equipment and payments for acquisitions of businesses typically represent the largest use of Company funds. Management believes that by acquiring, building, and reinvesting in stores, the Company will be better able to respond to competitive challenges and increase operating efficiencies. During the first three months of fiscal 2023, the Company expended $83,135, compared to $662,336 for the comparable period in the prior year related to these activities. The decrease from the prior year is due to the Buchanan Energy and Circle K acquisitions, occurring in the prior year.
As of July 31, 2022, the Company had long-term debt consisting of:
Finance lease liabilities$73,980 
3.67% Senior notes (Series A) due in 7 installments beginning June 17, 2022, and ending June 15, 2028135,000 
3.75% Senior notes (Series B) due in 7 installments beginning December 17, 2022 and ending December 18, 202850,000 
3.65% Senior notes (Series C) due in 7 installments beginning May 2, 2025 and ending May 2, 203150,000 
3.72% Senior notes (Series D) due in 7 installments beginning October 28, 2025 and ending October 28, 203150,000 
3.51% Senior notes (Series E) due June 13, 2025150,000 
3.77% Senior notes (Series F) due August 22, 2028250,000 
2.85% Senior notes (Series G) due August 7, 2030325,000 
2.96% Senior notes (Series H) due August 6, 2032325,000 
Variable rate Term Loan Facilities, requiring quarterly installments ending January 6, 2026265,625 
Less debt issuance costs(1,866)
1,672,739 
Less current maturities(33,562)
$1,639,177 
The Company has funded purchases of property and equipment and payments for acquisitions of businesses primarily from the issuance of debt, existing cash, and funds generated from operations. Future capital needs required to finance operations, improvements and the anticipated growth in the number of stores are expected to be met from cash generated by operations, the Revolving Facility, the Bank Line, and additional long-term debt or other securities as circumstances may dictate, and are not expected to adversely affect liquidity.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.
The Company’s exposure to market risk for changes in interest rates relates primarily to our investment portfolio and floating rate long-term debt obligations. We place our investments with high-quality credit issuers and, by policy, limit the amount of credit exposure to any one issuer. Our first priority is to attempt to reduce the risk of principal loss. Consequently, we seek to preserve our invested funds by limiting default risk, market risk, and reinvestment risk. We attempt to mitigate default risk by investing in only high-quality credit securities that we believe to be low risk and by positioning our portfolio to respond appropriately to a significant reduction in a credit rating of any investment issuer or guarantor. The portfolio includes only marketable securities with active secondary or resale markets to ensure portfolio liquidity. Based upon the outstanding balance of the Company's term loan facilities as of July 31, 2022, an immediate 100-basis-point move in interest rates would have an approximate annualized impact of $2.7 million on interest expense.
We do from time to time, participate in a forward buy of certain commodities. These contracts are not accounted for as derivatives as they meet the normal purchases exclusion under derivative accounting.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
    As of the end of the period covered by this report, an evaluation was performed under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 240.13a-15(e)). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s current disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
