Dollar General Corporation reported strong sales, operating profit and net income for its fiscal 2012 second quarter (13 weeks) ended August 3, 2012.

"Dollar General had another strong quarter," said Rick Dreiling, chairman and chief executive officer. "Our same-store sales increase of 5.1 percent demonstrates the ongoing execution of the initiatives around our key operating priorities and is evidence of our continued importance to our customers."

"We are pleased with the start of our third quarter and have refined our expectation for full year same-store sales growth to 4 to 5 percent, an increase from our previous expectation of 3 to 5 percent. In addition, we are raising our full year adjusted earnings per share guidance to a range of $2.77 to $2.85, including a $0.04 per share benefit from the settlement of an income tax audit in the second quarter, from our previous guidance of $2.68 to $2.78. We are well positioned to continue to broaden our appeal to more customers and to provide them with convenience and everyday low prices they can depend on."
