Raises Outlook For Fiscal 2013 Provides Preliminary Guidance For Fiscal 2014

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Nov. 19, 2012 // PRNewswire // - Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) (the "Company") today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended October 28, 2012. The Company also raised its outlook for fiscal 2013 and provided preliminary guidance for fiscal 2014.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Highlights Compared to the Year-Ago Period:

  • Revenues increased 8.5% to $107.1 million from $98.7 million
  • Company same store sales rose 6.8%, the sixteenth consecutive quarterly increase
  • Operating income rose 66% to $9.2 million from $5.6 million
  • Adjusted net income rose 76% to $8.3 million ($0.12 per share) from $4.7 million ($0.07 per share); adjusted net income and adjusted EPS reflect income tax expense only to the extent currently payable in cash; adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures (see the reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted earnings in the table accompanying this release)
  • Net income was $5.0 million ($0.07 per share) compared to $4.7 million ($0.07 per share) in the third quarter last year; net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 reflects a substantially higher book income tax rate compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012 as more fully described below
  • Cash provided by operating activities was $15.0 million compared to $10.2 million in the third quarter last year

The Company ended the third quarter of fiscal 2013 with a total of 731 Krispy Kreme shops systemwide, a net increase of 20 shops during the quarter. As of October 28, 2012, there were 96 Company stores and 635 franchise locations.

President and Chief Executive Officer James H. Morgan commented: "We commend the entire Krispy Kreme family for their accomplishments in the third quarter. Their efforts enabled us to deliver extraordinary results, including healthy revenue gains, robust same store sales, and substantial growth in both adjusted net income and operating cash flow. We have now generated positive same store sales for an impressive sixteen consecutive quarters. Even more important, our Company Stores segment has emerged as a strong contributor to our overall profitability due to the solid foundation that has been laid over the past four years by our operations team and those who support them, as well as the outstanding effort of our marketing group."

Morgan continued, "While we are pleased with our near-term achievements, our management focus is always centered on how best to position ourselves over the long term. Our decision making process and capital deployment is designed to build on Krispy Kreme's 75-year legacy so that we can create sustainable long-term value for our shareholders. By executing on our strategies, we are confident that we can continue to successfully grow the Company while at the same time realizing our brand mission to touch and enhance lives through the joy that is Krispy Kreme."

Morgan concluded, "Given our strong third quarter and year-to-date performance, we are pleased to be increasing our earnings outlook for fiscal 2013 and projecting continued double digit earnings growth for fiscal 2014."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Consolidated Results

For the third quarter ended October 28, 2012, revenues increased 8.5% to $107.1 million from $98.7 million.

Direct operating expenses increased to $90.2 million from $85.9 million, but as a percentage of total revenues fell to 84.2% from 87.0%. General and administrative expenses increased slightly to $5.1 million from $4.9 million in the year-ago period and, as a percentage of total revenues, decreased to 4.7% from 5.0%.

Operating income increased to $9.2 million from $5.6 million.

Adjusted net income was $8.3 million ($0.12 per share) compared to $4.7 million ($0.07 per share) in the third quarter last year. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS reflect income tax expense only to the extent currently payable in cash. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures (see the reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted earnings in the table accompanying this release).

Net income was $5.0 million ($0.07 per share) compared to $4.7 million ($0.07 per share), in the third quarter last year. Net income and EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect a book tax rate of 43% compared to a rate of 9% in the third quarter last year. The increase reflects the reversal of valuation allowances on deferred tax assets in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Accordingly, net income and EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 are not comparable to those for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Segment Results

Company Stores revenues increased 7.2% to $72.5 million from $67.6 million. Same store sales at Company stores rose 6.8%, the sixteenth consecutive quarterly increase, and were driven by higher traffic. The Company Stores segment posted operating income of $2.0 million compared to an operating loss of $574,000 in the third quarter last year.

Domestic Franchise revenues rose 7.3% to $2.5 million from $2.3 million, reflecting higher royalties. Total sales by domestic franchisees rose 6.1%, while same store sales increased 5.0%. Domestic Franchise segment operating income improved to $1.2 million compared to $1.1 million in the third quarter last year.

International Franchise revenues increased 12.1% to $6.0 million from $5.4 million, driven by higher royalties. Sales by international franchise stores rose 12.6%. Adjusted to eliminate the effects of changes in foreign exchange rates, same store sales at international franchise stores fell 7.7%, reflecting, among other things, honeymoon effects from the substantial number of international store openings in recent years, as well as cannibalization as markets develop. The International Franchise segment generated operating income of $4.3 million, up from $3.3 million in the third quarter last year.

KK Supply Chain revenues (including sales to Company stores) rose 5.1% to $52.8 million from $50.3 million in the same period last year. External KK Supply Chain revenues rose 11.4% to $26.1 million from $23.4 million in the year-ago period. KK Supply Chain generated operating income of $7.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, up from $7.0 million in the third quarter last year.

Outlook

Given the Company's third quarter and fiscal year-to-date results, along with other current information, it is raising its fiscal 2013 outlook for consolidated operating income to between $34 million and $36 million from the previous forecast of between $29 million and $33 million. The Company currently forecasts adjusted earnings per share for fiscal 2013 of between $0.44 and $0.47. The Company noted that fiscal 2013 is a 53-week year and the fourth quarter will therefore have 14 weeks instead of 13. In order to facilitate comparisons, the preceding Company guidance for fiscal 2013 does not reflect the anticipated, but irregularly occurring, benefit of the extra week.

For fiscal 2014, the Company anticipates opening 5 to 10 Company stores, between 10 and 15 domestic franchise stores, and more than 75 international franchise stores. Although the Company looks for continued organic same store sales growth in its domestic stores, international franchise same store sales will likely continue to be pressured by the substantial growth in international markets in recent years.

Based on these factors, the Company's preliminary fiscal 2014 guidance is for operating income in the range of $38 million to $42 million and adjusted EPS for fiscal 2014 of between $0.49 and $0.55 per share. The foregoing adjusted EPS range reflects estimated adjusted income tax expense of $2 million; adjusted income tax expense consists solely of taxes currently payable in cash. Because the Company has substantial net operating loss carryovers, the amount of taxes payable in cash is expected to remain insignificant for the foreseeable future.

Adjusted net income, adjusted income tax expense and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures (see the reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted earnings in the table accompanying this release).

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc.

NON-GAAP Financial Information

As of January 29, 2012, the Company had net deferred income tax assets of approximately $139.6 million, including approximately $90 million of tax assets related to federal and state net operating loss carryovers. The Company's federal net operating loss carryovers totaled approximately $240 million.

In the quarter ended January 29, 2012, the Company reversed $139.6 million of valuation allowances against deferred tax assets because management concluded that realization of such assets was more likely than not. While such reversal, which was required by GAAP, increased the Company's earnings by $139.6 million in fiscal 2012, the reversal has the effect of increasing the provision for income taxes, and therefore decreasing net income, beginning in fiscal 2013. The reversal had no effect on the Company's cash payments for income taxes. This negative effect on earnings occurs because the reversal of the valuation allowances resulted in the recognition in fiscal 2012 of income tax benefits expected to be realized in later years. Absent the reversal of the valuation allowances, any such tax benefits would have been recognized when realized in future periods upon the generation of taxable income. Accordingly, beginning in fiscal 2013, the Company's effective income tax rate, which in fiscal 2012 and earlier years bore little or no relationship to pretax income, more closely reflects the blended federal and state income tax rates in jurisdictions in which the Company operates.

Because of the increase in the Company's effective income tax rate as described above, the Company's income tax expense in the first three quarters of fiscal 2013 is not comparable to income tax expense in the first three quarters of fiscal 2012. In addition, until such time as the Company's net operating loss carryovers are exhausted or expire, GAAP income tax expense is expected to substantially exceed the amount of cash income taxes payable by the Company, which are expected to remain insignificant for the foreseeable future.

In addition, in the first nine months of fiscal 2012, the Company realized a pretax gain of $6.2 million ($4.7 million after tax, or $.06 per share) on the sale of its 30% ownership interest in KK Mexico, an equity method investee. The Company does not expect to realize similar gains in the future.

The following non-GAAP financial information and related reconciliation to GAAP measures are provided to assist the reader in understanding the effects of the above transactions and events, which are expected to be non-recurring, on the Company's results of operations, and to facilitate comparisons of fiscal 2013 results with the Company's results for the comparable periods of fiscal 2012. In addition, the non-GAAP financial information is intended to illustrate the material difference between the Company's income tax expense and income taxes currently payable. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS reflect income tax expense only to the extent such expense is currently payable in cash. These non-GAAP performance measures are consistent with other measurements made by management in the operation of the business which do not consider income taxes except to the extent to which those taxes currently are payable, for example, capital allocation decisions and incentive compensation measurements that are made on a pretax basis.

1)     Systemwide sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, include the sales by both Company and franchise stores but excludes sales among Company and franchise stores.  The Company believes systemwide sales data are useful in assessing the overall performance of the Krispy Kreme brand and, ultimately, the performance of the Company.  The Company's consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere herein include sales by Company stores, sales to franchisees by the KK Supply Chain business segment, and royalties and fees received from franchise stores based on their sales, but exclude sales by franchise stores to their customers.

 

2)     Computed on a pro forma basis assuming the average rate of exchange between the U.S. dollar and each of the foreign currencies in which the Company's international franchisees conduct business had been the same in the comparable prior year period. 

 

3)     The change in "same store sales" represents the aggregate on-premises sales (including fundraising sales) during the current year period for all stores which had been open for more than 56 consecutive weeks during the current year period (but only to the extent such sales occurred in the 57th or later week of each store's operation) divided by the aggregate on-premises sales of such stores for the comparable weeks in the preceding year period.  Once a store has been open for at least 57 consecutive weeks, its sales are included in the computation of same stores sales for all subsequent periods.  In the event a store is closed temporarily (for example, for remodeling) and has no sales during one or more weeks, such store's sales for the comparable weeks during the earlier or subsequent period are excluded from the same store sales computation.  The change in "same store customer count" is similarly computed, but is based upon the number of retail transactions reported in the Company's point-of-sale system.

 

4)     For Company wholesale sales, "average weekly number of doors" represents the average number of customer locations to which product deliveries are made during a week by Company Stores, and "average weekly sales per door" represents the average weekly sales to each such location by Company Stores.
