We believe 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 revenue and operating highlights below are compared to the same period of the prior year, unless otherwise noted.

Revenue Highlights

Consolidated revenues increased $31.7 million, or 9.1%, for the second quarter of 2014 and increased $77.5 million, or 11.0%, for the six months ended June 29, 2014. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $14.8 million, or 9.6%, and $35.1 million, or 11.2%, for the three and six months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 7.5% and 9.5% in comparable sales.
  • North America franchise royalty revenue increased approximately $750,000, or 3.7%, and $2.6 million, or 6.4%, for the three and six months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 5.4% and 7.2% in comparable sales, partially offset by increases in royalty incentives to franchisees for meeting certain development and performance targets.
  • Domestic commissary sales increased $10.6 million, or 7.6%, and $30.7 million, or 10.8%, for the three and six months, respectively, due to increases in the prices of certain commodities, primarily cheese, and increases in sales volumes for the six-month period.
  • International revenues increased $4.4 million, or 21.0%, and $8.1 million, or 19.8%, for the three and six months, primarily due to increases in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 8.6% and 7.6%, calculated on a constant dollar basis.

Operating Highlights

        Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended

(a) See the FOCUS Update section of this press release and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 for additional information.
   
(b) Total income before income taxes and other measures excluding FOCUS system rollout costs included within this press release are not measures defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP measures should not be construed as substitutes for or better indicators of the company's performance than the company's GAAP results. Management believes presenting income before income taxes and other measures excluding the FOCUS system rollout costs is important for purposes of comparison to prior year results and analyzing each segment's operating results. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures to allocate resources and analyze trends and underlying operating performance of the company.
   

 

Second quarter 2014 income before income taxes decreased $372,000, or 1.4%. Excluding our proprietary point-of-sale system ("FOCUS") rollout costs of $868,000, income before income taxes increased by $496,000, or 1.9%. The additional income produced by both domestic and international restaurants, primarily attributable to sales growth, was substantially offset by lower income from the domestic commissaries and "All others" segments. Significant results by segment are detailed as follows:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants results increased approximately $2.5 million primarily due to the 7.5% increase in comparable sales, partially offset by the impact of higher commodity costs. The market price for cheese averaged $2.13 per pound for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $1.78 per pound in the prior year.
  • Domestic commissaries results decreased approximately $2.8 million primarily due to a lower margin of approximately $800,000, higher insurance claims costs of approximately $1.1 million and higher costs associated with various ongoing commissary initiatives. We manage commissary results on a full year basis and anticipate the 2014 full year profit margin percentage will approximate 2013.
  • North America franchising increased $486,000 primarily due to higher royalties attributable to the 5.4% increase in comparable sales, which was partially offset by the previously mentioned increase in royalty incentives.
  • International income increased approximately $1.0 million primarily due to an increase in units and comparable sales of 8.6%, which resulted in both higher royalties and an increase in United Kingdom profits. These increases were partially offset by unfavorable results at our China Company-owned restaurant operations.
  • The results for the "All others" segment decreased $1.6 million. The decrease was primarily due to higher infrastructure costs to support our digital ordering business and a lower margin at our print and promotions business from a discounted direct mail campaign provided to domestic franchised restaurants.

Income before income taxes increased $741,000, or 1.3%, for the six-month period ended June 29, 2014. Excluding FOCUS system rollout costs of approximately $1.1 million, income before income taxes increased by approximately $1.8 million, or 3.2%. The increases in domestic company-owned restaurants, North America franchising and international income were primarily due to the same reasons as noted above for the three-month period. These increases were partially offset by decreases in the following segments:

  • Domestic commissaries income decreased $2.5 million as the incremental profits from higher sales were more than offset by the higher insurance claims costs of approximately $1.1 million and higher costs associated with various ongoing commissary initiatives.
  • The "All others" segment decreased $1.7 million for the same reasons as noted above in the three-month period.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses increased approximately $2.6 million, excluding FOCUS system rollout costs, primarily due to the following:
    • The prior year included an approximate $800,000 benefit from a decrease in the redemption value of a mandatorily redeemable noncontrolling interest in a joint venture.
    • Interest costs were approximately $900,000 higher due to both a higher average outstanding debt balance and a higher effective interest rate.
    • General and administrative costs increased due to higher salaries, benefits and equity compensation costs.

The effective income tax rates were 32.0% and 33.4% for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014, representing a decrease of 0.2% for the three-month period and an increase of 0.8% for the six-month period. Our effective income tax rate may fluctuate from quarter to quarter for various reasons. The higher tax rate for the first six months of 2014 was primarily due to the prior year including both favorable state tax settlements and the reinstatement of certain 2012 tax credits under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.

The company's free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the first six months of 2014 and 2013, was as follows (in thousands):

        Six Months Ended
        June 29,       June 30,
        2014       2013
                 
Net cash provided by operating activities (a)       $ 54,565         $ 47,232  
Purchases of property and equipment (b)         (26,239 )         (25,493 )
Free cash flow       $ 28,326         $ 21,739  
                         

 

    (a) The increase of approximately $7.3 million is primarily due to favorable changes in working capital.
    (b) Purchases of property and equipment were relatively consistent for the six-month periods. The current year period includes FOCUS hardware costs for domestic company-owned restaurants. The prior year period includes expenditures on equipment for New Jersey dough production as well as technology investments, including FOCUS software development costs.

 

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities (from the consolidated statements of cash flows) less the amounts spent on 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 (SEC) for additional information concerning our operating results and cash flow for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014.

FOCUS Update

As previously communicated, the Company is implementing a new, proprietary point-of-sale system ("FOCUS") in substantially all domestic system-wide restaurants. As of June 29, 2014, we had installed FOCUS in 383 restaurants (369 company-owned and 14 franchised), with the majority of the installations expected to occur by the end of 2014.

The costs related to implementing FOCUS are projected to decrease income before income taxes by approximately $5.0 million in 2014, or an $0.08negative impact on diluted earnings per share, as compared to 2013. For the six months ended June 29, 2014, the impact was a $0.02 reduction in diluted earnings per share. For additional information, see the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three- and six-month periods ended June 29, 2014.

Diluted earnings per share increased $0.02 and $0.05, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 29, 2014 due to the reduction in shares outstanding, primarily resulting from the share repurchase program. Approximately 41.0 million actual shares of the company's common stock were outstanding as of June 29, 2014.

Cash Dividend

We paid a cash dividend of approximately $5.2 million ($0.125 per common share) during the second quarter of 2014. Subsequent to the second quarter, on July 31, 2014, our Board of Directors approved a 12% increase in the Company's dividend rate per common share, from $0.50 on an annual basis to $0.56 on an annual basis, and declared a third quarter dividend of $0.14 per common share (approximately $5.7 million based on current shareholders of record). The dividend will be paid on August 22, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 13, 2014. The declaration and payment of any future dividends will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors, subject to the Company's financial results, cash requirements, and other factors deemed relevant by our Board of Directors.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain matters discussed in this press release and other company communications constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Generally, the use of words such as "expect," "estimate," "believe," "anticipate," "will," "forecast," "plan," "project," or similar words identify forward-looking statements that we intend to be included within the safe harbor protections provided by the federal securities laws. Such forward-looking statements may relate to projections or guidance concerning business performance, revenue, earnings, contingent liabilities, resolution of litigation, commodity costs, profit margins, unit growth, capital expenditures, and other financial and operational measures. Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those matters expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. The risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are involved in our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:

  • aggressive changes in pricing or other marketing or promotional strategies by competitors, which may adversely affect sales; and new product and concept developments by food industry competitors;
  • changes in consumer preferences or consumer buying habits, including the impact of adverse general economic conditions, such as increasing tax rates;
  • the impact that product recalls, food quality or safety issues, incidences of foodborne illness and other general public health concerns could have system-wide on our restaurants or our results;
  • failure to maintain our brand strength and quality reputation;
  • the ability of the company and its franchisees to meet planned growth targets and operate new and existing restaurants profitably;
  • increases in or sustained high costs of food ingredients or other restaurant costs. This could include increased employee compensation, benefits, insurance, tax rates, regulatory compliance and similar costs, including increased costs resulting from federal health care legislation;
  • disruption of our supply chain or commissary operations which could be caused by sole or limited source of suppliers or weather, drought, disease or other disruptions beyond our control;
  • increased risks associated with our international operations, including economic and political conditions and instability in our international markets and difficulty in meeting planned sales targets and new store growth. This could include our expansion into emerging or underpenetrated markets, such as China, where we have a company-owned presence. Based on prior experience in underpenetrated markets, operating losses are likely to occur as the market is being established;
  • the credit performance of our franchise loan or guarantee programs;
  • the impact of the resolution of current or future claims and litigation;
  • current or proposed legislation impacting our business;
  • the impact of changes in currency exchange and interest rates;
  • failure to effectively execute succession planning, and our reliance on the multiple roles of our Founder, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, who also serves as our brand spokesperson;
  • disruption of critical business or information technology systems, and risks associated with systems failures and data privacy and security breaches, including theft of company, employee and customer information. This would include the increased risk associated with the rollout of FOCUS. If prolonged and widespread technological problems are experienced during the rollout, our domestic operations could be disrupted, which could adversely impact sales.

These and other risk factors are discussed in detail in "Part I. Item 1A. - Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year endedDecember 29, 2013. We undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of future events, new information or otherwise, except as required by law.
