EMERYVILLE, Calif.(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Jamba, Inc. (NASDAQ:JMBA; NASDAQ:JMBAU; NASDAQ:JMBAW) today reported unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended October 7, 2008.

Fiscal third quarter 2008 (3Q08), 12-week period ended October 7, 2008, compared to fiscal third quarter 2007 (3Q07), 12-week period ended October 16, 2007:

  • Total revenue of $86.6 million in 3Q08, an increase of 3.6% from $83.6 million in 3Q07.
  • Loss from operations for 3Q08 was $(11.4) million as compared to a loss of $(3.1) million in 3Q07. Loss from operations would have been $(5.5) million as compared to $(2.9) million in 3Q07, excluding the impact of store impairment, lease termination and store closure costs of $5.9 million ($0.2 million in 3Q07).(*) Loss from operations includes non-cash share-based compensation of $2.1 million in 3Q08 compared to $1.0 million in 3Q07.
  • Net loss for 3Q08, including non-cash activities was $(12.4) million, compared to net income of $22.4 million in 3Q07. Net loss for 3Q08 would have been $(6.0) million compared to a net loss of $(0.7) million in 3Q07, excluding $5.9 million of store impairment, lease termination and store closure costs ($0.2 million in 3Q07) and $0.5 million loss from derivative liabilities (compared to $23.3 million in 3Q07 gain from derivative liabilities).(*)
  • Diluted earnings (loss) per share of $(0.23) in 3Q08, compared to $0.40 in 3Q07. Diluted loss per share in 3Q08 would have been $(0.11) compared to $(0.01), excluding store impairment, lease termination and store closure costs and gain (loss) from derivative liabilities. (*)
  • Company-owned comparable store sales(1) of (10.3)% in 3Q08, compared to 3.8% in 3Q07.
  • Four new company-owned stores were opened in 3Q08, compared to 24 new company-owned stores in 3Q07. This brings the total number of company-owned stores to 520 and the total number of system-wide stores (company-owned and franchise-operated stores) to 749.
  • Store-level EBITDA(*) decreased to $13.8 million in 3Q08 compared to $16.4 million in 3Q07. For a reconciliation of Store-level EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net income (loss), a GAAP financial measure please see the table at the end of this release.

"We remain focused on our key business objectives to improve store operating performance, grow franchising and maximize revenue streams from licensing. We are making tangible progress with a number of initiatives that have recently been implemented or are being planned and we continue to expect store operating performance to demonstrate material improvement in 2009 as a number of these activities take hold and begin impacting financial performance," said Steven R. Berrard, the interim Chief Executive Officer and President.

Mr. Berrard continued, "While we can not control the difficult consumer economic conditions we find ourselves operating under, we are taking actions in a number of areas we can control, like strong cost controls and implementing other revenue initiatives. We have also gathered valuable insights from Jamba team members through recent field management meetings that are being incorporated into our plans to better address historical cannibalization, competitive threats, marketing and even new revenue opportunities like food."


(1)Comparable store sales are calculated using sales of stores open at least thirteen full fiscal periods. Management reviews the increase or decrease in comparable store sales compared with the same period in the prior year to assess business trends and make certain business decisions.

* - Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures in its statements made in this release. Income (loss) from operations and net income (loss) are presented excluding certain non-cash activities, which presentation the Company believes is a helpful indicator of the Company's financial performance. The statements are reconciled to the GAAP presentation of income (loss) from operations and net income (loss) in the same statement in which the non-GAAP financial measures are presented. The Company also uses a non-GAAP financial measure for an adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, which presentation the Company believes is a helpful indicator of the Company's financial performance. [For a reconciliation of diluted earnings (loss), please see the table at the end of this release.] In addition, the Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures of store-level EBITDA. The Company defines store-level EBITDA as net income (loss) from operations, plus franchisee reimbursements and other income less: (a) depreciation and amortization, (b) general and administrative expenses; (c) store pre-opening expenses; (d) trademark impairment; (e) store lease termination and closure expenses; (f) store impairment expenses; (g) other operating expenses and (h) income taxes. The Company believes that store-level EBITDA is an important measure of financial performance because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate continuing store-level operating efficiency and performance. For a reconciliation of Store-level EBITDA to net income (loss), please see the table at the end of this release. The adjusted income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) and Store-level EBITDA are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to income (loss) from operations or net income (loss) as indicators of financial performance. Each non-GAAP financial measure used as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
