CEO Comments

"Our third quarter results position us well to deliver on our EPS goals for the year. Our International business continues to deliver strong performance and our ongoing productivity efforts led to 70 basis points of restaurant margin expansion in the quarter," said Elizabeth Smith, CEO. "We knew that our back half trends would be challenged given the high year ago base; however, our marketing programs did not break through as expected.  We are preparing for 2016 with significant innovation driven platforms and new levers to drive comp sales."

  • The decrease in Total revenues was primarily due to the effect of foreign currency translation, partially offset by the net benefit of new restaurant openings and closings.
  • The increases  in Adjusted restaurant-level operating margin and Adjusted operating income margin were primarily due to productivity savings and increased efficiencies in advertising expenses. These increases were partially offset by commodity and wage inflation.
  • The difference between Adjusted and U.S. GAAP restaurant-level operating margins in Q3 2015 was due to the favorable resolution of a payroll tax audit contingency.
  • The increase in U.S. GAAP operating income margin in Q3 2015 was primarily due to the lapping of costs related to our International Restaurant Closure Initiative and impairments related to the decision to sell our corporate aircraft and Roy's.

  • The increases in Adjusted and U.S. GAAP operating income margin were primarily due to lower headcount due to the Company's organizational realignment in 2014.  The increase in U.S. GAAP operating income margin was also due to lower impairments.  
  • The difference between Adjusted and U.S. GAAP operating income margins in Q3 2015 was primarily due to restaurant relocations and remodel costs.

  • The decrease in Total revenues is primarily due to foreign currency translation, primarily in Brazil, and the impact of the International Restaurant Closure Initiative. This was partially offset by new restaurant openings and an increase in comparable sales in Brazil and South Korea.
  • The increase in Adjusted and U.S. GAAP restaurant-level operating margin was primarily due to higher average unit volumes and productivity savings partially offset by higher commodity and wage inflation.
  • The increase in Adjusted operating income margin was primarily due to higher average unit volumes.
  • The increase in U.S. GAAP operating income margin was driven by higher restaurant-level operating margin and the lapping of expenses related to our International Restaurant Closure Initiative.
  • Foreign currency translation negatively impacted adjusted income from operations by $4.4 million.

Unallocated Corporate Operating Expense

Certain expenses are managed centrally and are not allocated to the U.S. or International segment. In Q3 2015, unallocated expenses at the restaurant operating level were $8.9 million lower than Q3 2014 primarily due to lower general liability expenses and the favorable resolution of a payroll tax audit.

Dividend Declaration and Share Repurchases

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share to be paid on November 25, 2015 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 13, 2015.

On August 3, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors approved a new $100.0 million share repurchase program. The authorization will expire on February 3, 2017. During Q3 2015, the Company repurchased $60.0 million of outstanding stock under the program. As of September 27, 2015, $40.0 million remains authorized under the share repurchase program.

Fiscal 2015 Financial Outlook

The Company is reaffirming its full-year 2015 outlook on adjusted diluted earnings per share of at least $1.27.

The Company has revised guidance on the following items:

  • Blended U.S. comparable restaurant sales growth is expected to be 0.5% to 1.0% versus prior guidance of "approximately 1.5%".
  • Total Revenues are expected to be approximately $4.37 billion versus prior guidance of approximately $4.43 billion.

All other elements of the guidance included in the August 4, 2015 release remain intact.

Selected Preliminary 2016 Financial Outlook

Below are the Company's current expectations for the full-year 2016:

  • An increase in Adjusted EPS within the Company's long-term target of 10% - 15% growth
  • Positive comparable U.S. restaurant sales
  • An increase in Adjusted operating margin
  • Commodity inflation is expected to be approximately 1%
  • Foreign exchange headwinds of approximately $12 million dollars, primarily attributable to the depreciation of the Brazilian real.  Most of this impact will occur in the first half of 2016.

The Company will provide detailed 2016 guidance on the fourth quarter earnings call in February 2016.

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.

Although we believe these non-GAAP measures enhance investors' understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace U.S. GAAP financial measures. These metrics are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The 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 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. We believe that the disclosure of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors as they form the basis for how our management team and Board of Directors evaluate our operating performance, allocate resources and establish employee incentive plans.

For reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures used in this release, refer to tables four, five, six and seven included later in this release.

(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.

_________________

(1)

Represents expenses incurred for the International and Domestic Restaurant Closure Initiatives.

(2)

Relates to a payroll tax audit contingency adjustment, for the employer's share of FICA taxes related to cash tips allegedly received and unreported by our employees during calendar years 2011 and 2012, which is recorded in Labor and other related expenses. In addition, a deferred income tax adjustment has been recorded for the allowable income tax credits for the employer's share of FICA taxes expected to be paid, which is included in Provision (benefit) for income taxes and offsets the adjustment to Labor and other related expenses. As a result, there is no impact to Net income from this adjustment.

(3)

Represents non-cash intangible amortization recorded as a result of the acquisition of our Brazil operations.

(4)

Represents asset impairment charges and accelerated depreciation incurred in connection with our relocation and remodel programs.

(5)

Represents asset impairment charges and related costs associated with our decision to sell the Roy's concept and corporate aircraft.

(6)

Relates primarily to costs incurred with the secondary offerings of our common stock in March 2015 and March 2014, respectively, and other transaction costs.

(7)

Fees and expenses related to certain legal and contingent matters, including the Cardoza litigation.

(8)

Relates to severance expense incurred as a result of our organizational realignment.

(9)

Primarily represents the sale of our Roy's business.

(10)

Relates to the refinancing of our Senior Secured Credit Facility in March 2015 and May 2014, respectively.

(11)

Income tax effect of adjustments for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2015 and September 28, 2014, respectively, are calculated based on the statutory rate applicable to jurisdictions in which the above non-GAAP adjustments relate. Additionally, for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2015, a deferred income tax adjustment has been recorded for the allowable income tax credits for the employer's share of FICA taxes expected to be paid. See footnote 2 to this table.

(12)

Due to the net loss, the effect of dilutive securities was excluded from the calculation of diluted (loss) earnings per share for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2014. For adjusted diluted earnings per share, stock options of 2,912 are included in the dilutive calculation.
