ANN ARBOR, Mich.—Domino's Pizza, announced systemwide sales of $4.2 billion for the full-year 2003, ended Dec. 28, an increase of 5.8 percent.

Income from operations rose 0.7 percent to a record $159.2 million, though net income dropped 36 percent to $38.8 million. According to the filing, the decrease was blamed on after-tax charges of $33 million incurred in connection with the chain's successful recapitalization last June.
