    Filing in Focus: Krispy Kreme 8-K, June 2, 2014

    Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE:KKD) announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, cutting its earnings outlook for the full fiscal year. The company reported a 0.79% increase in revenue to $121.6M, falling short of analyst predictions of $126.7M, while same-store sales dropped 1.5%. Earnings increased from the year-ago $7.99M and $0.11 per share to $9.65M and $0.14 per share, while adjusted earnings per share of $0.23 met expectations. Last month Krispy Kreme appointed Anthony Thompson, former Papa John's International Inc head, its new CEO. Faced with lower-than-expected revenue, technology upgrade costs, and recent changes in management, the company lowered its earnings forecast from the previously stated $0.73 to $0.79 per share range to between $0.69 and $0.74 per share.
