Highlights

  • Strong same-store sales growth in both Canada and the U.S. driven primarily by gains in average cheque
  • Sales continued to benefit from menu innovations including the Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Dark Roast coffee
  • Costs of $27.3 million associated with the proposed transaction with Burger King Worldwide, Inc., an affiliate of 3G Capital, had a negative impact of $0.21 on EPS
  • Adjusted EPS(3) increased 25.2% to $0.95

 OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 5, 2014 /CNW/ - Tim Hortons Inc. (TSX: THI, NYSE: THI) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 28, 2014.

"We have strong momentum in our business, supported by early stage execution of our strategic plan. We are pleased with our ongoing growth and evolution which we believe is positioning our brand for long-term success," said Marc Caira, president and CEO. "With our strategic transaction announced in August, we can build on our momentum and have the opportunity to participate in the creation of a global powerhouse in the quick service restaurant sector. We expect Tim Hortons to significantly expand its reach as a strong, independent brand within the new company."

Consolidated Results

All percentage increases and decreases represent year-over-year changes for the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013, unless otherwise noted.

Systemwide sales(4) increased 7.5% on a constant currency basis, as a result of same-store sales growth of 3.5% in Canada and 6.8% in the U.S., as well as new restaurant development.

Total revenues grew 10.2% to $909.2 million compared to $825.4 million last year. Systemwide sales growth was the primary driver of both a 12.8% increase in distribution sales and growth of 8.6% in rents and royalties revenue. Franchise fee revenues grew by 17.4% due to higher levels of restaurant development and increased renovations in Canada, which also resulted in higher associated franchise fee costs.

Cost of sales increased by 8.6%, due primarily to growth in distribution cost of sales driven by systemwide sales growth. Operating expenses increased by 10.2%, due to higher rent and depreciation costs related to new restaurant openings and increased depreciation related to renovations. G&A expenses grew by 7.5% due primarily to increased salaries and benefits resulting from increased performance-related accruals and fewer vacancies in the organization. G&A growth was moderated by breakage income recognized in the quarter.

In the third quarter we recognized $27.3 million of costs associated with the proposed transaction with Burger King Worldwide, Inc., an affiliate of 3G Capital (the "Transaction") (as further described below).

Operating income was flat at $168.8 million. Adjusted operating income(3), which excludes the impact of $27.3 million of costs associated with the Transaction and $1.0 million of corporate reorganization costs incurred in Q3 2013, increased 15.5% to $196.1 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 $98.1 million, a decrease of $15.7 million. Net income was impacted by the full amount of the Transaction costs, as there was no tax benefit for these expenses. For the same reason, the effective tax rate increased significantly in the third quarter.

EPS of $0.74 was down from $0.75 in Q3 2013 due mainly to the $0.21 impact of the Transaction costs. Adjusted EPS(3) of $0.95 grew by 25.2% as a result of strong operating performance, as well as the cumulative impact of our recapitalization and expanded share repurchase program, which resulted in a lower number of shares outstanding. (Please refer to "Information on non-GAAP Measure" below for a reconciliation of adjusted EPS to EPS, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.)

Segmented Performance Commentary

Same-store sales growth rates continued to build on the strong performance reported in the second quarter.

Canada

Same-store sales in our Canadian segment grew by 3.5%. The increase was driven by gains in average cheque resulting from pricing and favourable product mix, partially offset by a slight decline in same-store transactions. Systemwide transactions grew as a result of new restaurants added to our system. Average cheque benefited from increased sales in both our breakfast and lunch dayparts, aided in part by the introduction of our Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich, as well as sales of baked goods, including new specialty donuts. Our new Dark Roast coffee blend, which was introduced systemwide towards the end of the quarter, also proved popular amongst our guests.

Operating income in the Canadian segment grew 9.2% to $196.2 million. Systemwide sales growth of 6.9% led to increased rents and royalties income and a higher allocation of supply chain income. The Canadian segment also benefited from the recognition of breakage income. We opened 41 restaurants in Canada in the third quarter.

United States

U.S. same-store sales increased by 6.8% in the quarter, driven by gains in average cheque resulting from favourable product mix and pricing and, to a lesser extent, same-store transactions. The U.S. segment experienced continued momentum, benefiting from increased sales in our breakfast daypart and cold beverage category, as a result of continued product innovation. Increased sales of coffee and hot beverages also contributed to same-store sales growth. Our new Dark Roast coffee blend, which was introduced systemwide towards the end of the quarter, also proved popular amongst our guests.

The U.S. segment had operating income of $7.4 million, an increase of $4.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2013. Systemwide sales growth of 12.8% drove an increase in rents and royalties income, and same-store sales growth led to a significant reduction in relief provided to franchisees. Year-over-year results also benefited as we recognized a $2.5 million asset impairment charge in Q3 2013 that was not present in the current quarter. These positive factors were partially offset by an increase in G&A expense.

We opened 10 restaurants in the U.S. in the third quarter. In October 2014, we signed an area development agreement with a new partner to develop approximately 10 Tim Hortons locations in New Jersey over the next five years. We have now executed seven development agreements in the U.S., representing approximately 145 new restaurants over 10 years.

Corporate services

The Corporate services segment had an operating loss of $9.7 million, compared to a loss of $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2013. The improvement was driven by the reversal of unfavourable product margins recognized in our supply chain in the first half of the year. This was partially offset by increased corporate costs, as described above in the explanation of G&A expenses in the quarter. Six restaurants were opened in the Gulf Cooperation Council in the quarter.

Significant Developments & Initiatives

Proposed Transaction with Burger King Worldwide, Inc. an affiliate of 3G Capital

On August 26, 2014, the Company announced that it had entered into a definitive arrangement agreement with Burger King Worldwide, Inc. and certain of its affiliates with respect to the Transaction. Pursuant to and subject to the terms and conditions of the arrangement agreement, the Transaction will result in Burger King Worldwide, Inc. and Tim Hortons being indirect subsidiaries of a newly formed Canadian company, 9060669 Canada Inc. ("Holdings"). The Transaction has been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of the Company as well as the Board of Directors of Burger King Worldwide Inc.

Company shareholders will receive, for each Company common share held, at the election of the holder: (a) C$65.50 in cash and 0.8025 common shares of Holdings (the "Arrangement Mixed Consideration"); (b) C$88.50 in cash (the "Arrangement Cash Consideration"); or (c) 3.0879 common shares of Holdings (the "Arrangement Share Consideration"). Common shares of the Company with respect to which no election is made will receive the Arrangement Mixed Consideration. Shareholders who elect to receive the Arrangement Cash Consideration or the Arrangement Share Consideration will be subject to proration in accordance with the Arrangement so that the total amount of cash paid and the total number of common shares of Holdings issued to the Company's shareholders as a whole are equal to the total amount of cash and number of common shares of Holdings that would have been paid and issued if all of the Company's shareholders received the Arrangement Mixed Consideration.

The Transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, approval by the Company's shareholders, approval by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and regulatory approvals in Canada.

(3) Information on non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted operating income and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures. Management uses adjusted operating income and adjusted EPS 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. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. The Company's use of the terms adjusted operating income and adjusted EPS may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. The reconciliations of operating income and diluted EPS, which are GAAP measures, to adjusted operating income and adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP measures, are set forth in the tables below:

All numbers rounded

(4) Total systemwide sales growth includes restaurant level sales at both Company-operated and franchised restaurants. Approximately 99.6% of our systemwide restaurants were franchised as at September 28, 2014. 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 third quarter of 2014, systemwide sales on a constant currency basis increased 7.5% compared to the third quarter of 2013. Systemwide sales growth in Canadian dollars, including the effects of foreign currency translation, was 7.9% in the third quarter of 2014. 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.
