“Brinker delivered our fifth consecutive quarter of sequential sales improvement, posting positive sales and industry leading traffic,” said Wyman Roberts, Chief Executive Officer and President. “Our sustained momentum is being driven by several key factors including operational execution, takeout, and value.”

QUARTERLY OPERATING PERFORMANCE

Company Sales and Company Restaurant Expenses

Chili’s Company sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 2.7% to $640.6 million from $623.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to an increase in comparable restaurant sales. As compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018, Chili’s restaurant operating margin(1) declined. Chili’s Restaurant expenses, as a percent of Company sales, increased compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to higher rent expense associated with the new operating leases entered into as part of the sale leaseback transactions and the impact of adopting the new revenue accounting standard (“ASC 606”), partially offset by sales leverage. Restaurant labor, as a percent of Company sales, increased compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018 due to higher wage rates, incentive bonus and employee health insurance expenses. Cost of sales, as a percent of Company sales, increased compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to unfavorable menu item mix, partially offset by increased pricing.

Maggiano’s Company sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 1.5% to $120.9 million from $119.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to an increase in comparable restaurant sales. As compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018, Maggiano’s restaurant operating margin(1) declined. This was primarily driven by Restaurant expenses, as a percent of Company sales, that increased compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018, primarily due to higher rent and repair and maintenance expenses. This was partially offset by a decrease in both Restaurant labor, as a percent of Company sales and Cost of sales, as a percent of Company sales.

(1) 

Restaurant operating margin is defined as Company sales less Cost of sales, Restaurant labor and Restaurant expenses and excludes Depreciation and amortization expenses (see non-GAAP reconciliation below).

Franchise and Other Revenues

Franchise and other revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 23.2% to $29.2 million from $23.7 million primarily related to the adoption of ASC 606 during the first quarter of fiscal 2019, please refer to “REVENUE RECOGNITION UPDATE” section below for more details on the new revenue standard. Brinker franchisees generated approximately $325.5 million in sales(2) in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

(2) 

Royalty revenues are recognized based on the sales generated and reported to the Company by franchisees.

Other

Depreciation and amortization expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased $1.6 million compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to an increase in fully depreciated assets and restaurant closures, partially offset by additions for existing restaurants primarily related to the Chili’s remodels and new restaurants.

General and administrative expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 increased $2.3 million compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to higher professional service fees and stock compensation.

Income Taxes

On a GAAP basis, the effective income tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased to 8.6% compared to 38.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the “Tax Act”) that was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act lowered the federal statutory tax rate from 35.0% to 21.0% effective January 1, 2018. Our fiscal 2019 effective income tax rate is further lowered due to an increase in the FICA tax credit benefit, partially offset by the impact of the sale leaseback transactions. The second quarter of fiscal 2018 effective income tax rate was driven by the revaluation of the Company’s deferred tax accounts pursuant to the Tax Act, partially offset by the positive impact of lowering the federal statutory tax rate and lower profits.

FISCAL 2019 OUTLOOK UPDATE

The Company now estimates earnings per diluted share, excluding special items, to be in the range of $3.75 to $3.95. Revenues for fiscal 2019 are now estimated to be 2.0% to 2.75% up compared to fiscal 2018, primarily driven by comparable restaurant sales for fiscal 2019 that are now are estimated to be up 1.75% to 2.5%. In addition, we expect the effective income tax rate for fiscal 2019, excluding the impact of special items, to be approximately 10% to 12%.

Guidance Policy

Brinker provides annual guidance as it relates to comparable restaurant sales, earnings per diluted share, excluding special items, and other key line items in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income and will only provide updates if there is a material change versus the original guidance. We are unable to reliably forecast special items such as restaurant impairments, restaurant closures, reorganization charges and legal settlements without unreasonable effort. As such, we do not present a reconciliation of forecasted non-GAAP measures to the corresponding GAAP measures. If special items are reported in the remainder of fiscal 2019, reconciliations to the appropriate GAAP measures will be provided.

COMPARABLE RESTAURANT SALES

The table below presents the percent change in company-owned and franchise comparable restaurant sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2018, and the second quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2017:

Comparable restaurant sales include all restaurants that have been in operation for more than 18 months. Amounts are calculated based on comparable current period verses same period a year ago.

(2) 

Mix-shift is calculated as the year-over-year percentage change in Company sales resulting from the change in menu items ordered by guests.

(3) 

Chili’s franchise sales generated by franchisees are not included in revenues in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income; however, we generate royalty revenues and advertising fees based on franchisee revenues, where applicable. We believe including franchise comparable restaurant sales provides investors information regarding brand performance that is relevant to current operations and may impact future restaurant development.

(4) 

Chili’s domestic comparable restaurant sales percentages are derived from sales generated by company-owned and franchise operated Chili’s restaurants in the United States.

(5)  

System-wide comparable restaurant sales are derived from sales generated by company-owned Chili’s and Maggiano’s restaurants in addition to the sales generated at franchise-operated Chili’s restaurants.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Brinker management uses certain non-GAAP measures in analyzing operating performance and believes that the presentation of these measures in this release provides investors with information that is beneficial to gaining an understanding of the Company’s financial results. Non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures are included in the tables below.

Reconciliation of Net Income and Earnings Per Share Excluding Special Items

Brinker believes excluding special items from its financial results provides investors with a clearer perspective of the Company’s ongoing operating performance and a more relevant comparison to prior period results. The following reconciliation is presented in millions, except per share amounts.

Special items in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 consists of $2.2 million Other (gains) and charges and $1.0 million of incremental depreciation expense associated with a change in estimated useful life of certain restaurant-level long-lived assets. Special items in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 consists of $9.3 million primarily related to the impairment and closure of nine underperforming Chili’s restaurants in Canada. Footnote “(2)” to the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income contains additional details on the composition of the other gains and charges amount.

(2) 

Income tax effect related to special items is based on the statutory tax rate in effect at the end of each period presented.

(3) 

Adjustment for special tax items in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 primarily relate to the tax impact of excess tax windfalls associated with stock-based compensation. Adjustment for special tax items in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily relate to the revaluation of our net deferred taxes using the lower corporate tax rate pursuant to the Tax Act and recognition of tax benefits from the settlement of stock-based compensation awards in the provision for income taxes.

Reconciliation of Restaurant Operating Margin

Restaurant operating margin is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to operating income as an indicator of financial performance. Restaurant operating margin is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance of ongoing restaurant-level operations. This non-GAAP measure is not indicative of overall company performance and profitability in that this measure does not directly accrue benefit to the shareholders due to the nature of costs excluded. We define Restaurant operating margin as Company sales less Company restaurant expenses, including Cost of sales, Restaurant labor and Restaurant expenses. We believe this metric provides a more useful comparison between periods and enables investors to focus on the performance of restaurant-level operations by excluding revenues not related to food and beverage sales at company-owned restaurants, corporate General and administrative expense, Depreciation and amortization, and Other (gains) and charges.

Restaurant operating margin excludes Franchise and other revenues which are earned primarily from franchise royalties and other non-food and beverage revenue streams such as banquet service charges, digital entertainment revenues and gift card breakage. Depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant-level assets, is excluded because such expense represents historical costs which do not reflect current cash outlays for the restaurants. General and administrative expense includes primarily non-restaurant-level costs associated with support of the restaurants and other activities at our corporate offices and is therefore excluded. We believe that excluding special items, included within Other (gains) and charges, from Restaurant operating margin provides investors with a clearer perspective of the Company’s ongoing operating performance and a more useful comparison to prior period results. Restaurant operating margin as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies in our industry.

The adoption of the new revenue standard, ASC 606, in first quarter of fiscal 2019 changed the presentation and recording of certain items contained within Franchise and other revenues, Operating income, and Restaurant operating margin. The adoption did not have a significant impact, for more details about the impact of adopting the new revenue standard please refer to the “REVENUE RECOGNITION UPDATE” section below.

Foreign currency translation adjustment included within Comprehensive income in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income represents the unrealized impact of translating the financial statements of the Canadian restaurants and the Mexican joint venture (prior to divestiture in the second quarter of fiscal 2018) from their respective functional currencies to U.S. dollars. This amount is not included in Net income and would only be realized upon disposition of the businesses.

REVENUE RECOGNITION UPDATE

Effective in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, we adopted ASC 606 and did not elect to restate the prior year financial statements to reflect the application of the standard. The primary impact of the adoption is the change in presentation of advertising fees received from franchisees and the timing of recognition for franchise related revenues and gift card breakage. Under ASC 606, advertising fees are now presented on a gross basis as a component of Franchise and other revenues. Under the previous revenue accounting guidance (“Legacy GAAP”), the advertising fees were recorded as a reduction to advertising expenses within Restaurant expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. The recognition timing change for franchise related fees and gift card breakage, both recorded in Franchise and other revenues, did not have a significant impact to our results of operations during the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

The following table presents a comparative view of the fiscal 2019 second quarter and year to date results prepared in accordance with ASC 606 versus Legacy GAAP.

We executed sale leaseback transactions during the twenty-six week periods ended December 26, 2018 for gross consideration of $466.3 million, and removed the related Net property and equipment totaling $170.9 million from our Consolidated Balance Sheets, resulting in a net gain. Of the gain, as of December 26, 2018, $270.6 million remains deferred and is included within Other current liabilities and Deferred gain on sale leaseback transactions.
