Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc.’s double-digit increases in revenue and same-store sales were obscured by a slight decrease in net income in the second quarter ended Aug. 4, when a $1 million pretax charge for the refinancing of its credit facilities and the retirement of its remaining loan balances caused a 4.1-percent drop in profit. The Winston-Salem, N.C.-based chain operates or franchises more than 790 units in 22 countries.
