OAKVILLE, ON - Aug. 8, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Tim Hortons Inc. (TSX: THI, NYSE: THI) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30th, 2013.

"We delivered solid profitability in the quarter and progression in same-store sales. Although the operating environment remains challenging, we are focused on building our market leadership to drive top line growth," said Marc Caira, president and CEO.

"Following a comprehensive review, we plan to take advantage of our considerable financial strength and the historic low interest rate environment by adding $900 million in incremental leverage to repurchase shares. Adding leverage to repurchase shares while maintaining our investment grade rating is consistent with our ongoing focus on shareholder value creation, while preserving our strategic flexibility to invest in the business for the long-term benefit of all shareholders," added Caira.

Consolidated Results

All percentage increases and decreases represent year-over-year changes for the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, unless otherwise noted.

Systemwide sales(4) increased 5.0% on a constant currency basis. This growth resulted from new restaurant development in Canada and the U.S., with net growth of 233 restaurants systemwide in the past year, and from same-store sales growth of 1.5% in Canada and 1.4% in the U.S.

Our total revenues increased 1.9% to $800.1 million, compared to $785.6 million last year. The revenue growth rate was below that of systemwide sales due to a decline in distribution sales, the largest component of revenues. Distribution sales decreased due to lower prices for coffee and other commodities, which were also reflected in lower cost of sales. The decrease in distribution sales was partially offset by the growth in systemwide sales.

Variable interest entities ("VIEs") sales increased 9.4%. While the number of non-owned restaurants consolidated for accounting purposes has decreased since the start of fiscal 2013, it remains higher than it was a year ago, driven primarily by the addition of U.S. restaurants.

Rents and royalties grew by 5.2% in the second quarter, consistent with the growth in systemwide sales. Franchise fees decreased by 2.4%, due to a lower number and the type of restaurant sales, partially offset by a higher number of renovations during the quarter.

Total costs and expenses declined 0.5% in the second quarter, driven by lower cost of sales and general and administrative (G&A) expense, partly offset by higher operating expenses.

Cost of sales decreased by 0.8% due to the reduced commodity prices and operational improvements in our distribution centres, partially offset by increased VIE cost of sales. Operating expenses increased by 6.5%, due largely to increased depreciation and rent expenses associated with the new properties added to the system, as well as the depreciation impact of the digital menu board program. Franchise fee costs fell by 5.9% due to a lower number and the type of restaurant sales, partially offset by increased renovation activity.

G&A expenses decreased by 5.5% due to lower salaries and benefits, driven by vacancies, some of which are expected to be filled during fiscal 2013, and lower stock-based compensation expense.

We incurred $0.6 million of corporate reorganization expenses in the second quarter relating to the CEO transition, compared to $1.3 million of professional fees a year earlier.

Operating income of $176.6 million was up 11.2% from $158.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. The growth was driven by increased systemwide sales, combined with reduced expenses, particularly G&A. Adjusted operating income(3), which excludes the impact of the corporate reorganization expenses, increased 10.7% to $177.2 million. (Please refer to "Information on non-GAAP Measure" below for a reconciliation of adjusted operating income to operating income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure).

Net income attributable to Tim Hortons Inc. was $123.7 million, an increase of 14.5% from $108.1 million a year earlier. The improvement resulted from higher operating income, as well as a lower effective tax rate due to discrete items that occurred during the quarter.

EPS of $0.81 grew by $0.12 or 17.0% due to the increase in net income attributable to THI, as well as the positive, cumulative impact of our share repurchase programs. On average we had 2.2% fewer fully-diluted common shares outstanding in the second quarter compared to the same period last year. We have maintained our previously established fiscal 2013 EPS target range of $2.87 to $2.97 per share.

Segmented Performance Commentary

The operating environment continued to be challenging in the second quarter. We believe ongoing macro-economic uncertainty and low growth has been impacting consumer confidence and discretionary spending in both Canada and the U.S, leading to an overall intensified competitive environment, and ultimately, a negative impact on the performance of several restaurant chains and consumer companies.

Despite these challenges, we returned to positive same-store sales growth in the second quarter of 2013 after experiencing declines in the first quarter. Although we anticipate further positive growth in the second half of the year, given our year-to-date performance, we expect full-year same-store sales growth to be below our previously established targeted ranges of 2% to 4% in Canada and 3% to 5% in the U.S.

We have reclassified the segment data for the second quarter of 2012 to conform to the current period's presentation, which has been revised consistent with changes to our reportable segments announced last quarter.


Same-store sales in our Canadian segment grew by 1.5%. The increase was driven by gains in average cheque resulting from pricing, and to a lesser extent, favourable product mix, partially offset by a decrease in transactions. Systemwide transactions grew as we added more restaurants to our system.

Operating income in the Canadian segment was $174.8 million, an increase of $9.4 million or 5.7%. Systemwide sales growth of 4.4% in Canada resulted in higher rents and royalties income and a higher allocation of supply chain income. Segment operating income also benefited from increased franchise fee income and lower G&A expenses. We opened 21 restaurants in Canada during the quarter.

United States

U.S. same-store sales increased by 1.4% in the quarter, driven primarily by an increase in transactions. Operating income was $2.6 million in the U.S. segment, a decrease of $1.5 million from the second quarter of 2012. Systemwide sales growth of 8.6% led to increased rents and royalties revenues, which were more than offset by an increase in relief primarily related to restaurants opened in fiscal 2012, as well as higher operating expenses resulting from an increase in the number of properties owned or leased. In the second quarter of 2012, operating income benefitted from a $0.7 million reversal of previously accrued closure costs related to our New England markets. We opened 5 standard and non-standard restaurants in the U.S. during the quarter.

We believe the U.S. market has the potential to significantly contribute to the Company's long-term earnings growth, and we are committed to driving market success. Our sales progression in many U.S. markets mirrors that of many of our Canadian markets in their early development stages. However, overall sales volumes in our newer U.S. markets do not yet match our larger, more developed markets in the U.S., and, as a result, do not generate a strong return. We are seeking meaningful improvement in the returns on the capital we have deployed in the U.S. segment, and we have accordingly begun to accelerate our initiative to partner with well-capitalized franchisees in the U.S. as part of our development approach. While development capital in 2013 is mostly committed, starting in 2014, we expect to reduce capital being deployed in the U.S. segment as we look to new ways to profitably develop the U.S. market.

Corporate services

The Corporate services segment incurred an operating loss of $1.4 million, compared to a loss of $11.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. The improvement was driven by distribution services income resulting from operational improvements in our distribution centres, and favourable product margin variability which will partially reverse in the second half of 2013. Also contributing to the reduced operating loss were lower G&A expenses and lower manufacturing costs.

Our International operations also contributed positively, due in part to our expansion into Saudi Arabia. We opened 2 restaurants in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) during the quarter.

Significant Developments & Initiatives

Board approves expanded share repurchase program, to be funded by new debt

We are acting to take advantage of the Company's considerable balance sheet strength and cash flows, with Board approval of $900 million in additional debt, expected to be in the form of bank debt and/or newly issued bonds, which the Company plans to use to repurchase shares subject to market conditions, the negotiation and execution of agreements, and regulatory approvals.

We are targeting $1 billion in share repurchases over the next 12 months, including the remaining authorization in the existing program, and the deployment of the $900 million in planned debt proceeds. We expect our credit metrics to remain investment grade following the recapitalization, thereby preserving our strong balance sheet, cash flows, and access to capital as we pursue our strategic planning work.

Consistent with these plans, the Company has obtained regulatory approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to amend its Normal Course Issuer Bid (NCIB) to remove the former maximum dollar cap of $250 million. As a result, under our amended NCIB, we will be entitled to purchase up to 10% of our "public float" as at February 14, 2013 (being 15,239,531 common shares), subject to the negotiation and execution of an amended broker agreement. We plan to retain flexibility and evaluate alternative means of purchasing shares, including, for example, implementing a new normal course or substantial issuer bid, subject to market conditions, the negotiation and execution of agreements, and regulatory approvals, for the remainder of the targeted $1 billion in share purchases in the most effective, efficient means possible.

Sherri Brillon and Thomas V. Milroy appointed to Board of Directors

Sherri Brillon and Thomas V. Milroy have been appointed to the Tim Hortons Board of Directors, effective August 8th, 2013.

Mr. Milroy is Chief Executive Officer of BMO Capital Markets, and is responsible for all of BMO Financial Group's businesses involving corporate, institutional and government clients in North America and globally.

Board declares dividend payment of $0.26 per common share

The Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.26 per common share, payable on September 4th, 2013 to shareholders of record as of August 19th, 2013.

(3) Information on non-GAAP Measure

Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP measure. See below reconciliations for adjusting items to calculate adjusted operating income. Management uses adjusted operating income to assist in the evaluation of year-over-year performance, and believes that it will be helpful to investors as a measure of underlying operational growth rates. This non-GAAP measure is not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. The Company's use of the term adjusted operating income may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. The reconciliation of operating income, a GAAP measure, to adjusted operating income, a non-GAAP measure, is set forth in the table below:

Reconciliation of Adjusted Operating Income

Q2 2013
  Q2 2012   YTD 2013   YTD 2012
  (in millions)   (in millions)
Operating income  $   176.6   $   158.8   $   304.5   $   290.5
Add: Corporate reorganization expenses  0.6   1.3   10.1   1.3
Adjusted operating income  $   177.2   $   160.1   $   314.6   $   291.7


All numbers rounded

(4) Total systemwide sales growth includes restaurant level sales at both Company and Franchised restaurants. Approximately 99.5% of our systemwide restaurants were franchised as at June 30th, 2013. Systemwide sales growth is determined using a constant exchange rate where noted, to exclude the effects of foreign currency translation. U.S. dollar sales are converted to Canadian dollar amounts using the average exchange rate of the base year for the period covered. For the second quarter of 2013, systemwide sales on a constant currency basis increased 5.0% compared to the second quarter of 2012. Systemwide sales are important to understanding our business performance as they impact our franchise royalties and rental income, as well as our distribution income. Changes in systemwide sales are driven by changes in average same-store sales and changes in the number of systemwide restaurants, and are ultimately driven by consumer demand.

We believe systemwide sales and same-store sales growth provide meaningful information to investors regarding the size of our system, the overall health and financial performance of the system, and the strength of our brand and restaurant owner base, which ultimately impacts our consolidated and segmented financial performance. Franchised restaurant sales are not generally included in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (except for certain non-owned restaurants consolidated in accordance with applicable accounting rules). The amount of systemwide sales impacts our rental and royalties revenues, as well as distribution revenues.

Income Statement Definitions
Sales     Sales include Distribution sales, sales from company-operated restaurants, and sales from consolidated Non-owned restaurants. Distribution sales comprise sales of products (including a minimal amount of manufacturing product sales to third parties), supplies, and restaurant equipment outside of initial restaurant establishment or renovations (see "Franchise Fees") that are shipped directly from our warehouses or by third-party distributors to restaurants or retailers through our supply chain. Sales from company-operated restaurants and consolidated Non-owned restaurants comprise restaurant-level sales to our guests. The consolidation of Non-owned restaurants essentially replaces our rents and royalties with restaurant sales, which are included in VIEs' sales. 
Rents and royalties     Includes royalties and rental revenues earned, net of relief, and certain advertising levies associated with our Canadian Advertising Fund relating primarily to the Expanded Menu Board Program.
Franchise fees     Includes license fees and equipment packages, at initiation of a restaurant and in connection with the renewal or renovation, and revenues related to master license agreements.
Cost of sales     Cost of sales includes costs associated with the management of our supply chain, including cost of goods, direct labour and depreciation, as well as the cost of goods delivered by third-party distributors to restaurants for which we manage the supply chain logistics, and for canned coffee sold through grocery stores. Cost of sales also includes food, paper and labour costs of Company-operated restaurants and consolidated Non-owned restaurants.
Operating expenses     Includes rent expense related to properties leased to restaurant owners and other property-related costs including depreciation. Also included are certain operating expenses related to our distribution business such as warehouse technology costs and utilities, and product development costs.
Franchise fee costs     Includes the cost of equipment sold to restaurant owners at the commencement or in connection with the renovation of their restaurant business, including training and other costs necessary to assist with a successful restaurant opening, and/or the introduction of our Cold Stone Creamery® co-branding offering into existing locations. Also includes support costs related to project-related and/or operational initiatives.
General and administrative expenses     Includes costs that cannot be directly related to generating revenue, including expenses associated with our corporate and administrative functions, depreciation of head office buildings and office equipment, and the majority of our information technology systems.
Corporate reorganization expenses     Includes termination costs and professional fees related to the implementation of our new Corporate Centre and Business Unit organizational structure, as well as CEO transition costs.
Equity income     Includes income from equity investments in partnerships and joint ventures and other minority investments over which we exercise significant influence. Equity income from these investments is considered to be an integrated part of our business operations and is therefore included in operating income.
Other (income) expense, net     Includes (income) expenses that are not directly derived from the Company's primary businesses, such as foreign currency adjustments, gains and losses on asset sales, and other asset write-offs.
Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests     Relates to the consolidation of Non-owned restaurants pursuant to applicable accounting rules.
