  • The decrease in total revenues was primarily due to domestic refranchising and foreign currency translation, partially offset by the net impact of restaurant openings and closures and higher U.S. comparable restaurant sales.
  • The decrease in GAAP operating income margin was primarily due to impairment expenses associated with international restructuring as well as labor inflation, commodity inflation and lower sales in Brazil. These decreases were partially offset by increases in average check, productivity initiatives and lower advertising expense.
  • The primary difference between GAAP and adjusted operating income margin is Q2 2018 adjusted operating income margin excludes impairment charges related to international restructuring.
  • The effective income tax rate in Q2 2018 includes $6.2 million of tax benefit driven primary by exercises of certain legacy stock options. These exercises benefited Q2 2018 diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.07.

Dividend Declaration and Share Repurchases

On July 25, 2018, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.09 per share to be paid on August 22, 2018 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 9, 2018.

On February 16, 2018, our Board of Directors approved a $150.0 million share repurchase program. As of July 30, 2018, we had $69.0 million remaining under this authorization. This authorization will expire on August 16, 2019.

Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook

We are updating our 2018 financial outlook for GAAP diluted earnings per share, U.S. comparable restaurant sales and our tax rate. All other aspects of our full-year financial outlook as previously communicated in our April 26, 2018 earnings release remain intact. Our tax rate is now expected to be lower due to the tax benefit from the exercise of certain legacy stock options in Q2 2018. See the table below for more detail.

We are reaffirming our full-year adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance of $1.38 to $1.45. The benefit of stronger than expected U.S. comparable restaurant sales and our lower than expected tax rate are expected to be offset by political headwinds and foreign currency translation losses impacting our business in Brazil.

Financial Results:

Outlook on Apr. 26


Current Outlook

Other Selected Financial Data:

1% to 2%


1.5% to 2.5%










(1)

The primary difference between our U.S. GAAP outlook and our adjusted outlook for both diluted earnings per share and effective income tax rate is driven by adjustments through Q2 2018 as reflected in Table 5 of this release, as well as anticipated adjustments in connection with our relocation and restaurant closure initiatives.

(2)

Combined U.S. comparable restaurant sales outlook is based on a comparable calendar basis. For 2018, this will compare the 52 weeks from January 1, 2018 through December 30, 2018 to the 52 weeks from January 2, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

Impact of the Adoption of New Revenue Recognition Standard

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 "Revenue Recognition (Topic 606), Revenue from Contracts with Customers". Refer to Exhibit 99.2 to our April 26, 2018 Form 8-K for additional information regarding the Company's adoption of this standard and the impact to our historical financial results.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with 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 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 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 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.

In this release, we have also included forward-looking non-GAAP information under the caption "Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook". This relates to our current expectations for fiscal year 2018 adjusted diluted EPS, combined U.S. comparable restaurant sales 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 2018 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.

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 twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2018, we issued 3.6 million shares of our common stock through the exercise of stock options and repurchased 3.4 million shares of our outstanding common stock.

Restaurant and asset impairments and closing costs includes $0.6 million of adjustments for the thirteen

recorded within the U.S. segment.

(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.
