CEO Comments

"Q2 performance for our brands and the industry was softer than expected," said Liz Smith, CEO. "However, we made significant progress elevating the core guest experience, which will return the portfolio to sales growth in the second half of 2016. In addition, we made meaningful advances to optimize our portfolio for long-term growth and improve total shareholder return. These actions included the sale of Outback South Korea, progress on our sale-leaseback program and investing ahead of growth internationally."

  • The decrease in Total revenues was primarily due to lower comparable restaurant sales and the effect of foreign currency translation, partially offset by the net benefit of new restaurant openings and closings.
  • The decreases in U.S. GAAP and Adjusted restaurant-level operating margin were primarily due to: (i) higher labor expense resulting from wage inflation and investments in our service model, (ii) unfavorable product mix and (iii) higher commodity costs driven by product enhancements at Outback and inflation in Brazil. These decreases were partially offset by productivity savings and menu pricing.
  • The decrease in U.S. GAAP operating income margin was due to: (i) $39.6 million of asset impairment charges in connection with the decision to sell our South Korean business and (ii) lower restaurant-level operating margin as described above. This decrease was partially offset by lower expense associated with the timing of the Company's annual managing partner conference.
  • The difference between U.S. GAAP and Adjusted operating income margin was primarily due to the $39.6 million of pre-tax asset impairment charges described above.

(1)

Comparable restaurant sales exclude the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency rates.

(2)

Relocated international restaurants closed more than 30 days and relocated U.S. restaurants closed more than 60 days are excluded from comparable restaurant sales until at least 18 months after reopening.

Dividend Declaration and Share Repurchases

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share to be paid on August 25, 2016 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 10, 2016.

The Company repurchased 3.4 million shares of common stock in Q2 2016 for a total of $65 million, which left $110 million remaining under our existing authorization.  On July 26, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors canceled the remaining authorization and approved a new $300 million authorization. The authorization will expire on January 26, 2018.

Outback South Korea

On July 25, 2016, we sold Outback South Korea for approximately $50.0 million in cash. The Company's restaurant locations in South Korea will be operated as franchises under an agreement with the buyer.

We expect the sale to negatively impact Bloomin' Brands diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.01 in the second half of 2016, excluding the impact of any additional impairments, fees and expenses related to the transaction.

Fiscal 2016 Financial Outlook

The Company has updated several of the metrics in its financial outlook for fiscal 2016 driven primarily by: (i) lower U.S. comparable restaurant sales and (ii) the impact of the sale of Outback South Korea, as described above.

The following table presents the Company's updated expectations for selected fiscal 2016 financial reporting and operating results as compared to the financial outlook provided in the Company's February 17, 2016 earnings release. These updated expectations supersede the previously provided financial outlook.

(1)

Decrease driven by $39.6 million of pre-tax asset impairment charges in connection to the decision to sell our South Korean business and $26.6 million of costs related to the defeasance of the 2012 CMBS loan.

(2)

We expect the South Korea sale to negatively impact Bloomin' Brands diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.01 in the second half of 2016, excluding the impact of any additional impairments, fees and expenses related to the transaction.

(3)

The Adjusted diluted earnings per share outlook includes: (i) adjustments incurred through June 26, 2016 (as reflected in table six of this release) and (ii) $4.8 million of forecasted pre-tax adjustments for the second half of the year, primarily related to anticipated expenses associated with the remodel and relocation programs, the Bonefish Grill Restructuring Initiative and amortization for intangibles acquired in connection with the Brazil acquisition. Refer to "Non-GAAP Measures" for additional information.

(4)

The primary difference between U.S. GAAP and adjusted operating income margin is due to the South Korea impairment charges in Q2.

(5)

Excludes the impact of any additional rent increases resulting from future sale-leasebacks.

(6)

The primary differences between U.S. GAAP and adjusted effective income tax are due to lower U.S. GAAP pre-tax income from the South Korea impairment charges noted in footnote 1 and $3.5 million of tax expense associated with the repatriation of proceeds from the sale.

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 establish 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, and those that 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 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 2016 Financial Outlook." This information relates to our current expectations for fiscal 2016 adjusted operating income margin, adjusted diluted EPS growth 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 and quantified to the extent practicable under "Fiscal 2016 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 we cannot guarantee that additional adjustments will not occur in the remainder of the fiscal year or that they will not significantly impact our GAAP results.

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

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.

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 for income taxes and offsets the adjustment to Labor and other related expenses.
