IHOP Corp. Reports Solid First Quarter 2008 Financial Results

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2008) - IHOP Corp. (NYSE: IHP) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008, which included the first full quarter of operating results after the Company's acquisition of Applebee's International, Inc. on November 29, 2007. Performance highlights of the newly combined company for the first quarter 2008 included:


-- During the first quarter 2008, the IHOP business unit produced system-
wide same-store sales growth of 3.7%, resulting in its 21st consecutive
quarter of positive growth. The Applebee's business unit produced system-
wide domestic same-store sales growth of 0.5%, reflecting its first quarter
of positive growth in two years.

-- Franchisees opened 11 new IHOP restaurants and 16 new Applebee's
restaurants during the first quarter 2008, bringing the total number of
IHOP and Applebee's restaurants system-wide to 1,353 and 1,986,
respectively.

-- Consolidated cash from operating activities amounted to $10.0 million
in the first quarter 2008. The Company's cash position was augmented by
$4.2 million from the run-off of the IHOP business's long-term notes
receivable.

-- Consolidated capital expenditures were $18.1 million for the first
quarter 2008, primarily attributable to expenditures on the Applebee's
Restaurant Support Center in Lenexa, Kansas, and company-operated
Applebee's restaurants.



Julia A. Stewart, IHOP Corp.'s chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We are pleased to report a solid first quarter of financial results for our newly combined company. The IHOP business unit continued to perform well during the first quarter 2008 as we drove same-stores sales growth, benefited from new franchise restaurant openings, moderated G&A spending and minimized capital expenditures.

"Within the Applebee's business unit, we generated the brand's first positive quarter of same-store sales growth since the first quarter 2006. We also made progress on our plan to improve Applebee's company restaurant operating margins as the result of better management of labor and controllable expenses during the quarter. In March, we launched Applebee's new advertising campaign -- It's a Whole New Neighborhood -- and finalized our brand positioning and menu strategy approach. We also began the process of franchising Applebee's company-operated restaurants with the agreement to sell our Southern California and Nevada markets.

"Finally, while we are making progress on our planned sale-leaseback of Applebee's 191 company-owned restaurant locations, the transaction has been challenged by weakening credit market conditions. We are continuing our negotiations with several parties and will determine if the deal terms available are in the best economic interests of the Company to move forward with a transaction in the original timeframe contemplated. We will keep investors updated on future developments," Stewart said.

First Quarter 2008 Financial Performance Detail

For the quarter ended March 31, 2008, the Company reported a 24.1% decrease in net income available to common stockholders to $8.6 million, or a 20.6% decrease in net income per diluted share available to common shareholders to $0.50. The decreases were primarily due to a $48.4 million increase in interest expense primarily related to the financing of the Applebee's acquisition, a $31.5 million increase in G&A expenses due to a full quarter of Applebee's G&A expenses, as well as dividends on preferred stock issued to finance the Applebee's acquisition.

These factors were partially offset during the first quarter 2008 by the strong performance of the parent company's core franchising businesses, which produced a $40.7 million increase in Franchise Operations profitability due to a full quarter's recognition of Applebee's Franchise Operations profit and a 12.5% increase in IHOP Franchise Operations profit. Additionally, the Company's quarterly performance benefited from a lower effective tax rate of 9.9% compared to 36.9% in the first quarter last year. The effective tax rate of 9.9% in the first quarter 2008 reflects the benefit of compensation related tax credits associated with Applebee's company-owned restaurant operations.

The Company's consolidated cash from operating activities of $10.0 million in the first quarter 2008 was impacted by a $32.1 million decrease in deferred revenues primarily due to the redemption of Applebee's gift cards as expected during the quarter. Consolidated capital expenditures were higher than anticipated at $18.1 million, primarily as the result of final construction expenditures on Applebee's Lenexa Restaurant Support Center in Lenexa, Kansas, and company-operated Applebee's restaurants.

Update on Applebee's Business Model Transformation

While IHOP Corp. is making progress on its planned sale-leaseback of Applebee's 191 company-owned restaurant locations, the transaction has been challenged by weakening credit market conditions. The Company is continuing its negotiations with several parties and will determine if the deal terms available are in its best economic interests to move forward with a transaction during the second quarter 2008.

An asset purchase agreement for Applebee's Restaurant Support Center in Lenexa, Kansas, has been negotiated and is expected to result in a closing on or before June 1, 2008, with after-tax cash proceeds of approximately $40 million.

On March 19, 2008, IHOP Corp. announced that it had reached agreement with Apple American Group LLC for the sale of 41 company-operated Applebee's restaurants located in Southern California and Nevada. The agreement also provided for future franchise restaurant development in these markets. IHOP Corp. reiterated its plans to franchise approximately 100 company-operated Applebee's restaurants in fiscal 2008 for after-tax cash proceeds ranging between $90 and $100 million. Currently, the Company is in discussions with a number of prospective franchisees for the sale of additional markets in fiscal 2008.

2008 Performance Guidance

IHOP Corp. is amending its 2008 financial performance guidance for consolidated capital expenditures and consolidated cash from operating activities due to a reclassification of expenditures from consolidated cash from operating activities to consolidated capital expenditures of approximately $8 million. These expenditures were associated with final construction costs of Applebee's newly developed Restaurant Support Center in Lenexa, Kansas. As a result, consolidated cash from operations is expected to range between $105 and $110 million versus the Company's previous expectations of approximately $100 million for fiscal 2008. Consolidated capital expenditures are expected to range between $30 and $34 million versus the Company's previous expectations of approximately $25 million for fiscal 2008.

The Company's cash performance is expected to be augmented by approximately $17 million from the structural run-off of the IHOP business unit's long-term notes receivable in fiscal 2008. In fiscal 2008, the Company expects to generate between $88 and $97 million in consolidated free cash flow. See "References to Non-GAAP Financial Measure" below.

The Company reiterated its expectations for IHOP same-store sales to grow between 2% and 4% for fiscal 2008, and for its franchisees and area licensee to open between 65 and 70 new IHOP restaurants this year. IHOP Corp. also reiterated its expectations for Applebee's same-store sales to grow between 1% and 2% for fiscal 2008, and for its franchisees to open between 50 and 65 new Applebee's restaurants and that Applebee's will open only one company restaurant this year, which occurred in the first quarter 2008.

IHOP Corp. also reiterated its consolidated G&A expense expectations of ranging between $186 and $199 million in fiscal 2008.

References to Non-GAAP Financial Measure

This news release includes references to the non-GAAP financial measure "free cash flow." The Company defines "free cash flow" for a given period as cash provided by operating activities, plus receipts from notes and equipment contracts receivable ("long-term notes receivable"), less capital expenditures. Management utilizes free cash flow to determine the amount of cash remaining for general corporate and strategic purposes after the receipts from long-term notes receivable, and the funding of operating activities and capital expenditures. Management believes this information is helpful to investors to determine the Company's cash available for these purposes. Free cash flow is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

The following table reconciles the Company's cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow for the Company's fiscal 2008 performance guidance:

share amounts)
Cash flows from operating activities $ 105-110

The following table sets forth the number of effective restaurants in the IHOP system and information regarding the percentage change in sales at those restaurants compared to the same period in the prior year. "Effective restaurants" are the number of restaurants in a given period, adjusted to account for restaurants open for only a portion of the period. Information is presented for all effective restaurants in the IHOP system, which includes restaurants owned by the Company, as well as those owned by franchisees and area licensees. Sales of restaurants that are owned by franchisees and area licensees are not attributable to the Company. However, we believe that presentation of this information is useful in analyzing our revenues because franchisees and area licensees pay us royalties and advertising fees that are generally based on a percentage of their sales, as well as rental payments under leases that are usually based on a percentage of their sales. Management also uses this information to make decisions about future plans for the development of additional restaurants as well as evaluation of current operations. Pro forma information on Applebee's restaurant data restaurant development and franchising activity is presented in the section entitled "Pro forma comparison -- Applebee's" herein.
