  • Adjusted net income was $12.1 million ($0.18 per share) compared to $11.2 million ($0.16 per share); adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures (see the reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted earnings in the table accompanying this release)

  • Cash provided by operating activities was $18.0 million compared to $13.5 million last year

President and Chief Executive Officer Tony Thompson commented: "We successfully engaged with Krispy Kreme fans and grew traffic during the third quarter through effective limited-time offers and other promotional and marketing incentives. Now that we have regained traffic momentum, in the fourth quarter we are working to balance top line growth with improved shop operating margins. Looking ahead, we intend to bolster customer connectivity, strengthen existing relationships and build new ones through, among other things, the implementation of a new consumer engagement platform. The initial version of the platform, including our ‘My Krispy Kreme Treats’ loyalty program, is currently in limited testing in three markets, with a domestic rollout planned for later next year."

Thompson continued: "Leveraging consumers’ love of our brand means more than just increasing doughnut purchases, as our coffee and other specialty beverages can and should play a larger role in our total sales mix over time. Our goal is to achieve a higher beverage attachment rate within our stores and greater beverage consumption at home, at work and on-the-go. We are encouraged by the growing popularity of our in-shop coffee and espresso offerings, along with early traction of our Krispy Kreme packaged ground coffee, ready-to-drink beverages and K-Cup® packs introduced over the past several quarters. And as our store footprint grows, we will become more accessible as a retail beverage destination, which should promote more visits to Krispy Kreme not only by frequent beverage consumers but also by our core Krispy Kreme doughnut fans."

Thompson concluded: "Krispy Kreme is well positioned for continued domestic and international growth. We are pursuing growth opportunities in a prudent and sustainable way by opening new Company shops, refranchising certain markets and signing new agreements with established and new franchise partners. Systemwide store development this year will be slightly above our earlier expectations due to more international store openings than originally planned. Given the enormous growth opportunity ahead of us, we are pleased with our progress in providing more consumers with the joy of experiencing our delicious, one-of-a-kind doughnuts and coffee and complementary products throughout the world."

Outlook

Based on year-to-date results and other current information, management is reaffirming its forecast of adjusted net income for fiscal 2015 of between $48 million and $51 million ($0.69 to $0.74 per share). Achievement of this forecast would represent a year-over-year increase in adjusted earnings per share of between 13% and 21% from the $0.61 reported for fiscal 2014 which was, in turn, up 30% from fiscal 2013.

Adjusted net income, adjusted income tax expense and adjusted EPS are non-GAAP measures (see the reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted earnings in the table accompanying this release).

KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS, INC.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

As of February 2, 2014, the Company had net deferred income tax assets of approximately $107 million, of which approximately $58 millionrelated to federal and state net operating loss carryovers. The Company’s federal net operating loss carryovers totaled approximately $174 million.

The Company has reported cumulative pretax income of over $120 million since the beginning of fiscal 2010, and the Company also has generated significant taxable income during this period. However, because of the Company’s utilization of its federal and state net operating loss carryovers and other deferred tax assets, the Company’s cash payments for income taxes have been relatively insignificant during this period. As a result, the provision for income tax expense has substantially exceeded cash payments for income taxes. Until such time as the Company’s net operating loss carryovers are exhausted or expire, GAAP income tax expense is expected to continue to substantially exceed the amount of cash income taxes payable by the Company.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company recorded a charge of $1.0 million related to the retirement of its secured credit facilities, consisting principally of the writeoff of deferred financing costs related to the Company’s term loan, which was retired in full, and the termination of an interest rate hedge related to the term loan. Charges of this nature are not expected to recur on a regular basis.

The following non-GAAP financial information and related reconciliation of adjusted net income to GAAP net income are provided to assist the reader in understanding the effects of the above facts and transactions on the Company’s results of operations. In addition, the non-GAAP financial information is intended to illustrate the material difference between the Company’s income tax expense and income taxes currently payable. These non-GAAP performance measures are consistent with other measurements made by management in the operation of the business which do not consider income taxes except to the extent to which those taxes currently are payable, for example, capital allocation decisions and incentive compensation measurements that are made on a pretax basis.

(1) Systemwide sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, include sales by both Company and franchise Krispy Kreme stores. The Company believes systemwide sales data are useful in assessing consumer demand for the Company’s products, the overall success of the Krispy Kreme brand and, ultimately, the performance of the Company. All of the Company’s royalty revenues are computed as percentages of sales made by the Company’s domestic and international franchisees, and substantially all of KK Supply Chain’s external sales of doughnut mixes and other ingredients ultimately are determined by demand for the Company’s products at franchise stores. Accordingly, sales by the Company’s franchisees have a direct effect on the Company’s royalty and KK Supply Chain revenues, and therefore on the Company’s profitability. The Company’s consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere herein include sales by Company stores, sales to franchisees by the KK Supply Chain business segment, and royalties and fees received from franchise stores based on their sales, but exclude sales by franchise stores to their customers.

(2) Computed on a pro forma basis assuming the average rate of exchange between the U.S. dollar and each of the foreign currencies in which the Company’s international franchisees conduct business had been the same in the comparable prior year period.

(3) The change in “same store sales” represents the aggregate on-premises sales (including fundraising sales) during the current year period for all stores which had been open for more than 78 consecutive weeks during the current year period (but only to the extent such sales occurred in the 79th or later week of each store’s operation) divided by the aggregate on-premises sales of such stores for the comparable weeks in the preceding year period. Once a store has been open for at least 79 consecutive weeks, its sales are included in the computation of same stores sales for all subsequent periods. In the event a store is closed temporarily (for example, for remodeling) and has no sales during one or more weeks, such store’s sales for the comparable weeks during the earlier or subsequent period are excluded from the same store sales computation. The change in “same store customer count” is similarly computed, but is based upon the number of retail transactions reported in the Company’s point-of-sale system.

(4) For Company wholesale sales, “average weekly number of doors” represents the average number of customer locations to which product deliveries are made during a week by Company Stores, and “average weekly sales per door” represents the average weekly sales to each such location by Company Stores.
