Management believes global restaurant and comparable sales growth 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 growth 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

All revenues and operating highlights below are compared to the same period of the prior year and exclude the Incentive Contribution, unless otherwise noted.

Revenues

Consolidated revenues increased $20.8 million, or 6.4%, for the third quarter of 2013 and increased $75.8 million, or 7.8%, for the nine months endedSeptember 29, 2013. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $9.4 million, or 6.5%, and $35.1 million, or 8.1%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases in comparable sales of 5.1% and 5.0%. The increase for the nine-month period was also due to the net acquisition of 50 restaurants in the Denver and Minneapolis markets from a franchisee in the second quarter of 2012.
  • North America franchise royalty revenue increased approximately $600,000, or 3.4%, and $2.0 million, or 3.4%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases in net franchise units over the prior year and increases in comparable sales of 0.6% and 1.3%, partially offset by royalty incentives offered to franchisees for meeting certain sales targets. The increase for the nine-month period was partially offset by reduced royalties attributable to the company's net acquisition of the 50 restaurants noted above.
  • Domestic commissary sales increased $5.4 million, or 4.1%, and $25.1 million, or 6.3%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases in sales volumes as well as increases in the prices of commodities.
  • International revenues increased $4.4 million, or 24.2%, and $11.2 million, or 21.4%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 8.1% and 7.7%, calculated on a constant dollar basis.

      $ 21,013       $ 20,613       $ 400       $ 77,418       $ 75,070       $ 2,348  
                                       

(a) Income before income taxes and other financial measures excluding the Incentive Contribution are non-GAAP financial measures. See Marketing Incentive Contribution table below for additional details and a reconciliation to our GAAP financial measures.

 

Third quarter 2013 income before income taxes increased approximately $400,000, or 1.9%, primarily due to the following:

  • North America franchising increased primarily due to the increase in net restaurants and comparable sales, partially offset by royalty incentives offered to franchisees for meeting certain sales targets.
  • International increased primarily due to the increase in net restaurants and comparable sales results and an improvement in our United Kingdom results, partially offset by higher operating losses in our company-owned China market.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses decreased primarily due to lower settlement costs than originally estimated for the previously disclosed Agne text messaging class action lawsuit.

These increases were partially offset by the following decrease:

  • Domestic commissaries decreased as higher distribution costs more than offset the incremental profits associated with higher sales. We manage commissary results on a full year basis and anticipate the 2013 full year pre-tax income margin will approximate the 2012 margin.

Domestic company-owned restaurants income before income taxes approximated the prior year as the incremental profits associated with higher comparable sales of 5.1% were offset by a lower gross margin.

The increase in income before income taxes for the nine months ended September 29, 2013 of $2.3 million, or 3.1%, was primarily due to the same reasons as the increases noted above for the three month period. In addition, All others increased primarily due to an improvement in our online operating results due to higher online sales volumes. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in income before income taxes at our domestic company-owned restaurants primarily due to higher commodity costs, somewhat offset by incremental profits associated with higher comparable sales of 5.0%.

The effective income tax rates were 30.0% and 31.9% for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2013, respectively, representing decreases of 3.7% and 1.9% from the prior year rates. The lower tax rates were due to various credits earned and the settlement or resolution of specific tax issues in 2013.

The company's free cash flow for the first nine months of 2013 and 2012 was as follows (in thousands):

         
        Nine Months Ended
        Sept. 29,     Sept. 23,
        2013     2012
               
Net cash provided by operating activities (a)       $ 74,833       $ 94,773  
Purchase of property and equipment (b)         (38,537 )       (26,425 )
Free cash flow       $ 36,296       $ 68,348  
                       

 

(a) The decrease of approximately $19.9 million was primarily due to unfavorable changes in working capital, including the timing of income tax and other payments, partially offset by an increase in net income.

(b) The increased purchases of property and equipment primarily relate to expenditures on equipment for the New Jersey dough production as well as technology investments.

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 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 29, 2013.

Marketing Incentive Contribution

The following table reconciles our GAAP financial results to our results excluding the Incentive Contribution for the three and nine months endedSeptember 29, 2013 versus the same periods in 2012:

               
        Three Months Ended     Nine Months Ended
        Sept. 29,     Sept. 23,     Sept. 29,     Sept. 23,
(In thousands, except per share amounts)       2013     2012     2013     2012
                           
Income before income taxes, as reported       $ 21,263       $ 20,863       $ 78,168       $ 71,849
Incentive Contribution (a)         (250 )       (250 )       (750 )       3,221
Income before income taxes, excluding Incentive Contribution       $ 21,013       $ 20,613       $ 77,418       $ 75,070
                           
Net income, as reported       $ 14,276       $ 13,031       $ 50,732       $ 44,301

Net income, excluding Incentive Contribution       $ 14,111       $ 12,872       $ 50,238       $ 46,417
                           
Earnings per diluted share, as reported       $ 0.65       $ 0.55       $ 2.27       $ 1.84
Incentive Contribution (a)         (0.01 )       (0.01 )       (0.03 )       0.09

Earnings per diluted share, excluding Incentive Contribution

      $ 0.64       $ 0.54       $ 2.24       $ 1.93
                           

(a) As previously disclosed, in connection with a 2012 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). In 2012, the Company 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 resulted in an increase in income before income taxes of approximately $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2012. These transactions together are referred to as the "Incentive Contribution."

 

The results shown in the table and elsewhere in this press release, which exclude the Incentive Contribution, are not measures defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP measures should not be construed as a substitute for or a better indicator of the company's performance than the company's GAAP results. 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, were based on financial measures that excluded the Incentive Contribution.

Share Repurchase Activity

The following table reflects our repurchases for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2013 and subsequent repurchases through October 28, 2013 (in thousands):

               
Period      

Number of
Shares

    Cost
               
Three Months Ended September 29, 2013       150     $ 10,331
               
Nine Months Ended September 29, 2013       1,128     $ 69,137
               
September 30, 2013 through October 28, 2013       74     $ 5,260
                 

There were 22.1 million and 22.4 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2013, representing decreases of 6.9% and 7.2% over the prior year comparable periods. Diluted earnings per share increased $0.05 and $0.17 for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2013 due to the reduction in shares outstanding resulting from the share repurchase program. Approximately 21.5 million actual shares of the company's common stock were outstanding as of September 29, 2013.

Regular Quarterly Dividend and Two-for-One Stock Split

As previously announced, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share; the dividend will be paid on November 22, 2013 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 11, 2013.

The Board of Directors also declared a two-for-one split of the company's outstanding shares of common stock, which will be effected in the form of a stock dividend. The stock dividend entitles each shareholder of record at the close of business on December 12, 2013 to receive one additional share for every outstanding share of common stock held on such record date. The stock dividend will be distributed on December 27, 2013.
