TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomin' Brands, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLMN) today reported results for the third quarter 2017 ("Q3 2017") compared to the third quarter 2016 ("Q3 2016").

Highlights for Q3 2017 include the following:

  • Comparable restaurant sales were up 0.6% at U.S. Outback Steakhouse with traffic up 0.1%;
  • Combined U.S. comparable restaurant sales were down (1.0)%;
  • Combined negative impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma was estimated to be 1.0% to comp sales and $0.04 to Diluted EPS;
  • Comparable restaurant sales were up 4.8% for Outback Steakhouse in Brazil; and
  • Opened eight new restaurants including six in international markets.

Subsequent to the fiscal second quarter earnings call, we repurchased $40 million of common stock, bringing the total year-to-date share repurchases to $273 million through November 3, 2017.

CEO Comments

"We were pleased with how we performed in a challenging third quarter," said Liz Smith, CEO. "In particular, Outback's positive response to investments in the customer experience returned us to traffic growth in Q3. We have seen further strengthening across the portfolio in October; however, we maintain a cautious outlook on the industry as we enter the holiday season, and this is reflected in our updated guidance."

Costs associated with hurricanes Harvey and Irma had a 40 basis point negative impact on GAAP and adjusted restaurant margin and operating margin in Q3 2017.

 ___________________

(1)          See Non-GAAP Measures later in this release.

 

  • The decrease in Total revenues was primarily due to refranchising internationally and domestically and the net impact of restaurant closings and new restaurant openings, partially offset by an increase in franchise and other revenues.
                                                              
  • The decrease in U.S. GAAP and adjusted restaurant-level operating margin was primarily due to: (i) higher labor costs, (ii) unfavorable seafood and dairy costs, (iii) operating expense inflation and (iv) higher net rent expense due to the sale-leaseback of certain properties. These decreases were partially offset by: (i) the impact of certain cost savings initiatives, (ii) lower advertising expense, (iii) increases in average check and (iv) lower beef costs.
                                                              
  • The decrease in U.S. GAAP operating income margin was primarily due to a decrease in restaurant-level operating margin and impairment charges. This decrease was partially offset by increases primarily in franchise and other revenues.
                                                              
  • Adjusted operating income margin excludes certain impairment charges and restaurant closing costs. See table five later in this release for more information.

Third Quarter Comparable Restaurant Sales

Lost operating days from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are included in our calculation of comparable restaurant sales. These lost operating days had an estimated 1.0% negative impact on third quarter combined U.S. comp sales results.

Dividend Declaration and Share Repurchases

In October 2017, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.08 per share to be paid on November 22, 2017 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 13, 2017.

On April 21, 2017, our Board of Directors approved a new $250 million share repurchase program. As of November 3, 2017, we repurchased 9.6 million shares of common stock for a total of $195 million and there is $55 million remaining under this authorization, which expires on October 21, 2018.

Fiscal 2017 Financial Outlook

We have updated several of the metrics in our financial outlook for fiscal 2017 primarily due to the negative impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well as higher commodity expenses than planned. In addition, although comp sales across the portfolio have improved in October, we remain cautious on future industry sales trends given the severity of industry declines in the third quarter and uncertainty surrounding consumer behavior during the upcoming holiday season.

The following table presents our updated expectations for selected fiscal 2017 financial reporting and operating results as compared to the financial outlook provided in our July 26, 2017 earnings release. These updated expectations supersede the previously provided financial outlook. Expectations for combined U.S. comparable restaurant sales, capital expenditures, and number of new system-side restaurants are unchanged from the July 26, 2017 outlook.

 ___________________

(1)       The difference between our U.S. GAAP and Adjusted diluted earnings per share outlook is due to adjustments
            to year-to-date results (as described in Table 5 later in this release), as well as the estimated impact of certain
            income adjustments on fiscal fourth quarter results.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP measures, which present operating results on an adjusted basis. These are supplemental measures of performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and include the following: (i) Adjusted restaurant-level operating margin, (ii) Adjusted income from operations and the corresponding margin, (iii) Adjusted net income, (iv) Adjusted diluted earnings per share, (v) Adjusted segment restaurant-level operating margin and (vi) Adjusted segment income from operations and the corresponding margin.

We believe that our use of non-GAAP financial measures permits investors to assess the operating performance of our business relative to our performance based on U.S. GAAP results and relative to other companies within the restaurant industry by isolating the effects of certain items that may vary from period to period without correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. However, our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which we have made adjustments are unusual or infrequent or will not recur. We believe that the disclosure of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors as they form part of the basis for how our management team and Board of Directors evaluate our operating performance, allocate resources and administer employee incentive plans.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace U.S. GAAP financial measures, and they are not necessarily standardized or comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. We maintain internal guidelines with respect to the types of adjustments we include in our non-GAAP measures. These guidelines endeavor to differentiate between types of gains and expenses that are reflective of our core operations in a period, and those that may vary from period to period without correlation to our core performance in that period. However, implementation of these guidelines necessarily involves the application of judgment, and the treatment of any items not directly addressed by, or changes to, our guidelines will be considered by our disclosure committee. You should refer to the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures in tables four, five and six included later in this release for descriptions of the actual adjustments made in the current period and the corresponding prior period.

As previously announced, based on a review of our non-GAAP presentations, we determined that, commencing with our results for the first fiscal quarter of 2017, when presenting non-GAAP measures, we will no longer adjust for expenses incurred in connection with our remodel program or intangible amortization recorded as a result of the acquisition of our Brazil operations. We recast historical comparable periods to conform to the revised presentation.

In this release, we have also included forward-looking non-GAAP information under the caption "Fiscal 2017 Financial Outlook". This relates to our current expectations for fiscal 2017 adjusted diluted EPS and adjusted effective income tax rate. We have also provided information with respect to our expectations for the corresponding GAAP measures.

The differences between our disclosed GAAP and non-GAAP expectations are described to the extent practicable under "Fiscal 2017 Financial Outlook". However, in addition to the general cautionary language regarding all forward-looking statements included elsewhere in this release, we note that, because the items we adjust for in our non-GAAP measures may vary from period to period without correlation to our core performance, they are by nature more difficult to predict and estimate, so additional adjustments may occur in the remainder of the fiscal year and they may significantly impact our GAAP results.

(2)            The Company has, and in the future may continue to have, negative working capital balances (as is 
                common for many restaurant companies). The Company operates successfully with negative working 
                capital because cash collected on Restaurant sales is typically received before payment is due on its 
                current liabilities, and its inventory turnover rates require relatively low investment in inventories. 
                Additionally, ongoing cash flows from restaurant operations and gift card sales are used to service debt 
                obligations and to make capital expenditures.

(3)            During the thirty-nine weeks ended September 24, 2017, we repurchased 13.8 million shares of our 
                outstanding common stock.

(1)       Includes adjustments for the write-off of $0.2 million of deferred rent liabilities associated with our relocation program, recorded in Other restaurant
           operating.

(2)       The following categories of our revenue and operating expenses are not included in restaurant-level operating margin because we do not consider
            them reflective of operating performance at the restaurant-level within a period:

           (i)       Franchise and other revenues, which are earned primarily from franchise royalties and other non-food and beverage revenue streams, such
                      as rental and sublease income.

           (ii)       Depreciation and amortization which, although substantially all of which is related to restaurant-level assets, represent historical sunk costs
                      rather than cash outlays for the restaurants.

           (iii)      General and administrative expense which includes primarily non-restaurant-level costs associated with support of the restaurants and other
                      activities at our corporate offices.

           (iv)      Asset impairment charges and restaurant closing costs which are not reflective of ongoing restaurant performance in a period.

(3)       Includes adjustments for the write-off of $5.5 million of deferred rent liabilities associated with the 2017 Closure Initiative and our relocation program,
           recorded in Other restaurant operating.

(4)       Includes adjustments for the write-off of $1.9 million of deferred rent liabilities, primarily associated with the Bonefish Restructuring, recorded in
           Other restaurant operating.
