For the 12 weeks in the 2013 fiscal fourth quarter, GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.48 compared to $0.45 for the 13 weeks in the 2012 fourth quarter. Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.62 for the 12 weeks ended December 29, 2013 compared to $0.59 per diluted share for the 13 weeks ended December 30, 2012. The Company recorded an impairment charge and a non-recurring special bonus totaling $3.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 while the 2012 fourth quarter was impacted by a $2.9 million debt refinancing charge.

“In 2013 we engaged our guests through new service and presentation, innovative new menu items, and targeted marketing efforts,” said Steve Carley, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. chief executive officer. “Overall, we have made considerable progress in transforming our brand and improving our guest experience but remain mindful that there is still much to be done. 2014 will be a year of continued focus and execution across our engagement, efficiency, and expansion initiatives.”

Operating Results

Total Company revenues, which include Company-owned restaurant revenues and franchise royalties, increased 0.5% to $241.9 million for the 12 weeks ended December 29, 2013 from $240.7 million for the 13 weeks ended December 30, 2012. For the 52 weeks ended December 29, 2013, total Company revenues were $1.0 billion, an increase of $40.1 million, or 4.1%, over total revenues of $977.1 million for the 53 weeks ended December 30, 2012.

System-wide restaurant revenues for the 12 weeks ended December 29, 2013 totaled $325.3 million, compared to $326.8 million for the 13 weeks ended December 30, 2013 at constant currency rates. System-wide restaurant revenues for the 52 weeks ended December 29, 2013 increased 3.2% to $1.4 billion, compared to $1.3 billion for the 53 weeks ended December 30, 2012.

Comparable restaurant revenues increased 3.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared to the prior fiscal year on a 12-week comparable basis. In the fourth quarter, guest counts decreased 1.4% while average guest check increased 5.1%. Comparable restaurants included those Company-owned restaurants that have achieved five full quarters of operations during the period presented, and such restaurants are only included in our comparable metrics if they are comparable for the entirety of both periods presented. The Company’s comparable restaurant revenue growth is calculated by comparing the same calendar weeks which, for fiscal year 2012, vary from the Company’s fiscal reporting by one week. Comparable restaurant revenues for fiscal year 2013 increased 4.0% for Company-owned restaurants compared to a year ago.

Restaurant-level operating profit margins were 21.7% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared to 20.6% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, an improvement of 110 basis points. The increased margins resulted primarily from the leverage of higher sales on fixed costs. Schedule II of this earnings release defines restaurant-level operating profit, discusses why it is a useful metric for investors and reconciles this metric to income from operations and net income.

Other Results

Depreciation and amortization costs increased slightly from $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 to $13.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013.

General and administrative costs were $22.8 million, an increase of $2.3 million from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 due mainly to an increase in salaries and benefits related to investments in talent to support the Company’s business initiatives as well as a $1.6 million non-recurring special bonus awarded by the board.

Selling expenses were $8.0 million, or 3.3% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, an increase from $6.4 million, or 2.7% of revenue, a year ago, primarily due to costs associated with a 15.7% increase in gift card sales.

During fiscal year 2013, the Company determined that four Company-owned restaurants were impaired. The Company recognized a non-cash pre-tax impairment charge of $1.5 million resulting from the projected future results of these restaurants.

The Company had an effective tax rate of 11.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, compared to a 19.3% rate in the same period a year ago. The effective tax rate for fiscal year 2013 was 21.8%, compared to 23.1% for fiscal year 2012.

Restaurant Development

As of the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, there were 355 Company-owned Red Robin® restaurants, six Red Robin’s Burger Works® and 134 franchised Red Robin restaurants – a total of 495 restaurants. In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company opened ten new Red Robin restaurants and relocated one as well as opened one Red Robin’s Burger Works. During the full year 2013, the Company opened 21 new Red Robin restaurants and relocated two as well as opened one Red Robin’s Burger Works. Franchisees opened two and closed one Red Robin restaurant during 2013.
Under our brand transformation initiative, the Company remodeled 19 Red Robin restaurants to our new brand standards during 2013.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

On December 29, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $17.1 million and total debt of $88.7 million, including $9.3 million of capital lease liabilities.
Cash generated from operations in fiscal year 2013 totaled $113.5 million compared to $94.4 million in fiscal year 2012, and fiscal year 2013 capital investments amounted to $78.9 million compared to $60.0 million in the prior year.

During the fourth quarter, the Company repurchased 31,928 shares for a total of $2.5 million under its share repurchase authorization. In fiscal year 2013, the Company repurchased a total of 68,816 shares for a total of $5.0 million.

Outlook for 2014

Red Robin’s 2014 fiscal year consists of 52 weeks ending on December 28, 2014.

In fiscal year 2014, the Company expects comparable restaurant sales growth in the low single digits. Additionally, the Company plans to open 20 new Red Robin restaurants and five Red Robin’s Burger Works resulting in total operating week growth of between 6 and 7%.

Capital investments in fiscal year 2014 are expected to total between $85 million and $90 million. In addition to the new restaurants, the Company also plans to remodel 50 Red Robin restaurants as part of its brand transformation initiative.

Restaurant-level operating profit margins in fiscal year 2014 are expected to exceed 21.0% with increases in both commodity and labor costs.

General and administrative costs are expected to be approximately $93 million, while selling expenses are expected to be approximately 3.1% of sales. Depreciation is projected to be between $59 million and $60 million.

The income tax rate in fiscal year 2014 is expected to be approximately 26.5%.

The sensitivity of the Company’s earnings per diluted share to a 1% change in guest counts for fiscal year 2014 is estimated to be $0.30 on an annualized basis. Additionally, a 10 basis point change in restaurant-level operating margin is expected to impact earnings per diluted share by approximately $0.07, and a change of approximately $200,000 in pre-tax income or expense is equivalent to approximately $0.01 per diluted share.

Schedule II

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Restaurant-Level Operating Profit to Income

from Operations and Net Income

(In thousands, except percentage data)

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes restaurant level occupancy costs, which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but excludes depreciation related to restaurant buildings and leasehold improvements. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant level assets, because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling, general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because, similar to depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance. Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The table below sets forth certain unaudited information for the 12 and 52 weeks endedDecember 29, 2013 and the 13 and 53 weeks ended December 30, 2012, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the components of restaurant level operating profit, which are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues.
