  • 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 the effect of foreign currency translation and increases in franchise revenues.

  • The decrease in U.S. GAAP and adjusted restaurant-level operating margin was primarily due to: (i) higher labor costs, (ii) operating expense inflation, (iii) service and product investments at Outback Steakhouse and (iv) higher net rent expense due to the sale-leaseback of certain properties. These decreases were partially offset by: (i) increases in average check, (ii) the impact of certain cost savings initiatives, (iii) lower advertising expense and (iv) lower insurance costs.

  • The increase in U.S. GAAP operating income margin was primarily due to: (i) lapping $39.6 million of asset impairment charges in connection with the 2016 sale of our South Korean business and (ii) increases in franchise revenues. This increase was partially offset by: (i) a decrease in restaurant-level operating margin and (ii) the timing of our annual partner's conference which occurred in Q2 of 2017 and Q1 of 2016.

  • Adjusted operating income margin excludes charges associated with the 2016 sale of our South Korean business and certain other adjustments. See table five later in this release for more information.

The call will also be webcast live from the Company's website at http://www.bloominbrands.com under the Investors section. A replay of this webcast will be available on the Company's website after the call.

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.

_________________

(1)

Excludes restricted cash.

(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 twenty-six weeks ended June 25, 2017, we repurchased 9.9 million shares of our outstanding common stock.
