Management believes global restaurant and comparable sales information, as defined in the table above, is useful in analyzing our results since our franchisees pay royalties that are based on a percentage of franchise sales. Franchise sales generate commissary revenue in the United States and in certain international markets. Global restaurant and comparable sales information is also useful in analyzing industry trends and the strength of our brand. Franchise restaurant sales are not included in company revenues.

Revenue and Operating Highlights

Revenues

Consolidated revenues increased $19.8 million, or 6.5%, for the third quarter of 2012 and increased $63.7 million, or 7.0%, for the nine months endedSeptember 23, 2012 compared to the same periods in the prior year. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $14.5 million, or 11.3%, and $35.5 million, or 9.0%, for the three and nine months endedSeptember 23, 2012, respectively, due to increases in comparable sales of 5.0% and 5.1% and the net acquisition of 50 restaurants in theDenver and Minneapolis markets from a franchisee in the second quarter of 2012.
  • North America franchise royalty revenue increased approximately $800,000, or 4.5%, and $2.6 million, or 4.7%, for the three and nine months ended September 23, 2012, respectively, primarily due to increases in comparable sales of 1.7% and 2.4% and increases in net franchise restaurants over the prior year. Royalty revenue increases were slightly offset by reduced royalties attributable to the company's net acquisition of the 50 restaurants noted above.
  • Domestic commissary sales increased $1.8 million, or 1.4%, and $17.3 million, or 4.6%, for the three and nine months ended September 23, 2012, respectively, primarily due to higher commissary product volumes resulting from increases in the volume of restaurant sales, partially offset by lower revenues due to lower commodity costs.
  • International revenues increased $2.5 million, or 16.2%, and increased $9.7 million, or 22.8%, for the three and nine months ended September 23, 2012, respectively, primarily due to increases in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 6.9% and 7.1%, calculated on a constant dollar basis.

Operating Highlights

All comparisons below are versus the same period of the prior year unless otherwise noted and exclude the Incentive Contribution. See "Marketing Incentive Contribution" below for further information.

Third quarter 2012 income before income taxes was $21.1 million, compared to $16.8 million, or a 25.0% increase. Income before income taxes was$72.4 million for the nine months ended September 23, 2012, compared to $62.7 million, or a 15.5% increase.

 

Income before income taxes is summarized in the following table on a reporting segment basis (in thousands):

 
      Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended
      Sept. 23,   Sept. 25,   Increase   Sept. 23,   Sept. 25,   Increase

(a) The nine months ended September 23, 2012 includes the benefit of a $1.0 million advertising credit from the Papa John's Marketing Fundrelated to the Incentive Contribution.

 

(b) Includes the impact of the Incentive Contribution in 2012 ($250,000 increase for the three-month period and a $4.3 million reduction for the nine-month period).

 

The increase in income before income taxes for the three months ended September 23, 2012, of $4.0 million is primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants income improved approximately $1.3 million primarily due to comparable sales increases as well as favorable commodity costs.
  • North America Franchising and International improved due to the previously mentioned increase in net restaurants and strong comparable sales results.
  • All others improved approximately $800,000 primarily due to an improvement in our eCommerce operations due to higher online sales.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses decreased due to the prior year including higher franchise incentives and a charge of approximately $800,000related to lease obligations associated with our former Perfect Pizza operations in the United Kingdom, partially offset by higher legal and insurance costs.
  • These increases were partially offset by a decrease in Domestic commissaries operating results of approximately $400,000. The decrease was due to lower margins resulting from lower prices charged to restaurants, slightly offset by increased profits from higher restaurant sales.

The increase in income before income taxes for the nine months ended September 23, 2012, of $13.0 million is primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants operating income improved approximately $4.7 million primarily due to comparable sales increases as well as favorable commodity costs.
  • Domestic commissaries income improved approximately $4.9 million primarily due to the increase in net restaurants and comparable sales.
  • North America Franchising and International improved due to the previously mentioned increase in net restaurants and strong comparable sales results.
  • All others improved approximately $2.3 million primarily due to an improvement in our eCommerce operations due to higher online sales.
  • These increases were slightly offset by higher unallocated corporate expenses primarily due to an increase in short-term management incentives, legal and insurance costs and higher costs related to our operators' conference, partially offset by the prior year including franchise incentives and a charge of approximately $800,000 related to lease obligations associated with our former Perfect Pizza operations in theUnited Kingdom.

The effective tax rates were 33.8% for both the three and nine months ended September 23, 2012, representing increases of 4.7% and 1.7% from the prior year rates. Our effective income tax rate may fluctuate from quarter to quarter for various reasons, including the settlement or resolution of specific federal and state issues. The prior year included significant favorable tax resolution items.

The company's free cash flow for the first nine months of 2012 and 2011 was as follows (in thousands):

 
    Sept. 23,   Sept. 25,
    2012   2011
         
Net cash provided by operating activities*   $  94,773     $  87,216  
Purchase of property and equipment     (26,425 )     (20,647 )
Free cash flow   $  68,348     $  66,569  
         
*The increase in net cash provided by operating activities is primarily due to higher operating income and favorable changes in working capital.
 

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities (from the consolidated statements of cash flows) less the purchase of property and equipment. We view free cash flow as an important measure because it is a factor that management uses in determining the amount of cash available for discretionary investment. Free cash flow is not a term defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and as a result our measure of free cash flow might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Free cash flow should not be construed as a substitute for or a better indicator of the company's performance than the company's GAAP measures.

See the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for additional information concerning our operating results and cash flow for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 23, 2012.

Our development pipeline as of September 23, 2012 included approximately 1,500 restaurants (300 restaurants in North America and 1,200 restaurants internationally), the majority of which are scheduled to open over the next six years.

Marketing Incentive Contribution

As previously announced, in connection with a new multi-year supplier agreement, the company received a $5.0 million supplier marketing payment in the first quarter of 2012. The company is recognizing the supplier marketing payment evenly as income over the five-year term of the agreement ($250,000 per quarter). The company then contributed the supplier marketing payment to the Papa John's Marketing Fund ("PJMF"), an unconsolidated, non-profit corporation, for the benefit of domestic restaurants. The company's contribution to PJMF was fully expensed in the first quarter of 2012.

PJMF elected to distribute the $5.0 million supplier marketing payment to the domestic system as advertising credits in the first quarter of 2012. Our domestic company-owned restaurants' portion of the adverting credits resulted in an increase in income before income taxes of approximately $1.0 million in the first quarter.

The overall impact of the two transactions described above, which are collectively defined as the "Incentive Contribution," increased income before income taxes $250,000 in the third quarter of 2012 and reduced income before income taxes by approximately $3.2 million for the nine-month period, as outlined in the table below. The impact for full-year 2012 will be a reduction to income before income taxes of approximately $3.0 million (diluted earnings per share reduction of $0.08).

The following table reconciles our GAAP financial results to the adjusted financial results, excluding the impact of the Incentive Contribution, for the three and nine months ended September 23, 2012:

 
    Three Months Ended     Nine Months Ended
    Sept. 23,   Sept. 25,     Sept. 23,   Sept. 25,
(In thousands, except per share amounts)   2012   2011     2012   2011
                   
Income before income taxes, as reported   $ 21,057     $ 16,846     $ 72,435   $ 62,693
Incentive Contribution        (250 )         -         3,221         -

Income before income taxes, excluding Incentive Contribution

  $ 20,807     $ 16,846     $ 75,656   $ 62,693
                   
Net income, as reported   $ 13,151     $ 11,123     $ 44,664   $ 39,674
Incentive Contribution        (159 )         -         2,116         -
Net income, excluding Incentive Contribution   $ 12,992     $ 11,123     $ 46,780   $ 39,674
                   
Earnings per diluted share, as reported   $     0.55     $     0.44     $     1.85   $     1.55
Incentive Contribution         -           -           0.09         -

Earnings per diluted share, excluding Incentive Contribution

  $     0.55     $     0.44     $     1.94   $     1.55
                   

The non-GAAP measures shown above, which exclude the Incentive Contribution, should not be construed as a substitute for or a better indicator of the company's performance than the company's GAAP measures. Management believes presenting the financial information excluding the impact of the Incentive Contribution is important for purposes of comparison to prior year results. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to allocate resources, and analyze trends and underlying operating performance. Annual cash bonuses, and certain long-term incentive programs for various levels of management, are based on financial measures that exclude the Incentive Contribution.

Share Repurchase Activity

The company repurchased 515,000 shares of its common stock for $25.4 million during the three months ended September 23, 2012 and repurchased 1.5 million shares for $64.1 million during the nine months ended September 23, 2012. Subsequent to quarter-end through October 24, 2012, the company repurchased 107,000 shares for $5.6 million. Approximately $51.8 million remains available under the company's share repurchase program.

There were 23.7 million and 24.1 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three- and nine-month periods, representing decreases of 5.7% and 5.6% over the prior year comparable periods. Diluted earnings per share increased $0.03 and $0.10 for the three- and nine-month periods, respectively, due to the reductions in shares outstanding, primarily resulting from the share repurchase program. Approximately 23.1 million actual shares of the company's common stock were outstanding as of September 23, 2012.
