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 $37.6 million, or 9.7%, for the fourth quarter of 2014 and increased $159.1 million, or 11.1% for the full year. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $15.0 million, or 8.8%, and $66.5 million, or 10.5%, for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively, primarily due to increases of 5.9% and 8.2% in comparable sales.
  • North America franchise royalty revenue increased approximately $2.4 million, or 11.3%, and $7.8 million, or 9.5%, for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively, primarily due to increases of 3.4% and 6.2% in comparable sales and due to reduced levels of performance-based royalty incentives.
  • Domestic commissary sales increased $8.7 million, or 5.6%, and $50.6 million, or 8.7%, for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively, due to increases in the prices of certain commodities, primarily cheese and meats, and higher overall margins. Additionally, higher sales volumes contributed to the full-year increase.
  • Other sales increased $9.8 million, or 66.4%, and $20.9 million, or 39.1%, for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively, primarily due to point-of-sale system ("FOCUS") equipment sales to franchisees. See the "FOCUS Update" section for additional information.
  • International revenues increased $1.7 million, or 6.6%, and $13.8 million, or 15.6%, for the fourth quarter and full year of 2014, primarily due to increases in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 8.9% and 7.4%, respectively, calculated on a constant dollar basis. The fourth quarter of 2013 included an additional month of revenues at our China company-owned operations as we changed the reporting cycle in the fourth quarter of 2013 to no longer consolidate the results one month in arrears. The impact of this change resulted in incremental revenues of$2.1 million in 2013.

(a) Includes FOCUS system rollout costs of approximately $1.4 million and $3.7 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2014, respectively. See the FOCUS Update section of this press release and the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the full year ended December 28, 2014 for additional information.

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.

Fourth quarter 2014 income before income taxes increased $4.5 million, or 15.9%. Excluding FOCUS rollout costs of approximately $1.4 million, income before income taxes increased approximately $5.9 million, or 21.1%. Significant results by segment are detailed as follows:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants results decreased approximately $1.0 million. The decrease was primarily due to higher automobile insurance claims costs of approximately $3.5 million and higher commodities costs, primarily cheese and meats, partially offset by the 5.9% increase in comparable sales. Additionally, the results for the fourth quarter of 2014 include approximately $500,000 of depreciation expense associated with FOCUS equipment costs.
  • Domestic commissaries results increased approximately $1.6 million primarily due to higher margins, partially offset by higher workers' compensation and automobile insurance claims costs of approximately $1.5 million.
  • North America franchising increased $2.6 million primarily due to higher royalties attributable to the 3.4% increase in comparable sales and a reduced level of performance-based royalty incentives.
  • International income increased approximately $2.5 million primarily due to an increase in units and comparable sales of 8.9% which resulted in both higher royalties and an improvement in United Kingdom commissary results. The fourth quarter of 2013 also included a $215,000 loss for the additional month of China company-owned operations as previously discussed.
  • The results for the "All others" segment decreased approximately $900,000 primarily due to higher infrastructure costs to support our digital ordering business.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses were $1.5 million higher primarily due to higher legal, management incentive compensation, and interest costs, partially offset by lower general and administrative and other expenses, including travel costs. Additionally, the results for the fourth quarter of 2014 include approximately $600,000 of depreciation expense associated with FOCUS capitalized software development costs.

The full year increase in income before income taxes was $8.1 million, or 7.7%. Excluding FOCUS system rollout costs of approximately $3.7 million, income before income taxes increased by approximately $11.9 million, or 11.2%. The increase was primarily due to the same reasons as noted above for the three month period. Additionally, the full year results include the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants income increased approximately $6.4 million primarily due to the 8.2% increase in comparable sales partially offset by higher commodities and higher automobile insurance claims costs of approximately $3.5 million. Additionally, the full year results include approximately $1.2 million of depreciation expense associated with FOCUS equipment costs.
  • Domestic commissaries results increased approximately $1.5 million primarily due to higher margins and higher sales volumes, which were somewhat offset by higher workers' compensation and automobile insurance claims costs of approximately $2.6 million and higher costs associated with various ongoing commissary initiatives.
  • International income increased approximately $4.4 million primarily due to an increase in units and comparable sales of 7.4% which resulted in both higher royalties and contributed to an improvement in the United Kingdom commissary results. These increases were partially offset by unfavorable results at our China company-owned restaurant operations, primarily due to higher restaurant disposition costs for 11 restaurants, which were approximately $700,000 higher in 2014.
  • In 2013, unallocated corporate expenses included an approximate $1.1 million benefit from a decrease in the redemption value of a mandatorily redeemable noncontrolling interest in a joint venture. An amendment to the joint venture agreement during 2014 no longer requires changes in the value to be recorded in net interest.

The effective income tax rates were 31.0% and 32.0% for the three months and full year ended December 28, 2014, representing increases of 1.6% and 0.8% for the three-month and full year periods, respectively. Our effective income tax rate may fluctuate from quarter to quarter for various reasons. The higher tax rates for 2014 were primarily due to the prior year including favorable state tax settlements.

The company's free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, was as follows (in thousands):

      Year Ended
      Dec. 28,     Dec. 29,
        2014         2013  
             
Net cash provided by operating activities (a)     $ 122,632       $ 101,360  
Purchases of property and equipment (b)       (48,655 )       (50,750 )
Free cash flow     $ 73,977       $ 50,610  
                     

(a) The increase of approximately $21.3 million was primarily due to higher net income and favorable changes in working capital and other operating activities including higher depreciation and amortization expense.

(b) Purchases of property and equipment were relatively consistent for both periods. The current year period includes FOCUS equipment costs for domestic company-owned restaurants and technology investments, including FOCUS software development costs. The prior year period includes expenditures on equipment for New Jersey commissary dough production, technology investments, including FOCUS software development costs, andChina new restaurant builds.

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, dividends or share repurchases. 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 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with theSecurities and Exchange Commission for additional information concerning our operating results and cash flow for the full year ended December 28, 2014.

FOCUS Update

As previously disclosed, the company is implementing a new, proprietary point-of-sale system ("FOCUS") in substantially all domestic system-wide restaurants. As of December 28, 2014, we had installed FOCUS in approximately 75% of our domestic restaurants, including all company-owned restaurants and approximately 1,600 franchised restaurants. Substantial completion is expected to occur by the end of the first quarter of 2015.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2014, the impact of implementing FOCUS was a $1.4 million and $3.7 million reduction in income before income taxes versus 2013, or a $0.02 and $0.06 reduction in diluted earnings per share, respectively. For additional information, see the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the full year ended December 28, 2014.

Share Repurchase Activity

The following table reflects our repurchases for the fourth quarter and full year 2014 and subsequent repurchases through February 17, 2015 (in thousands):

Period Number of Shares   Cost
         
Fourth Quarter 2014 502     $ 23,248
         
Full Year 2014 2,562     $ 117,400
         
December 29, 2014 through February 17, 2015

224

    $

13,593

           

There were 40.8 million and 41.7 million diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter and full year, respectively, representing decreases of 5.8% and 5.7%, respectively, over the prior year comparable periods. Diluted earnings per share increased $0.03 and $0.10, respectively, for the fourth quarter and full year due to the reduction in shares outstanding, primarily resulting from the share repurchase program. Approximately 39.9 million actual shares of the company's common stock were outstanding as of December 28, 2014.

2015 Key Operating Assumptions and Earnings Guidance

Earnings per Share (EPS) - The company projects 2015 EPS to increase to a range of $1.98 to $2.06, or increase 13% to 18% over 2014 EPS of $1.75.

Comparable Restaurant Sales - North America system-wide comparable sales are expected to increase 2% to 4% in 2015. International comparable sales are expected to increase 5% to 7%, on a constant dollar basis, in 2015.

Worldwide Net Unit Growth - Worldwide net unit growth in 2015 is expected to range between 220 and 250 units, with approximately 75% of the net unit growth in International markets.

Revenues - Total consolidated revenues are expected to increase 3% to 5% in 2015.

Income Before Income Taxes Margin - Consolidated income before income taxes margin in 2015 is expected to increase 30 to 50 basis points over 2014 levels. The biggest drivers of increased margins are projected improvements in International profitability resulting from added scale in franchised markets, and in company-owned restaurants in North America due to reduced commodity costs. In North America, we are assuming full-year block cheese prices in the mid-to-high $1.60's per pound.

Income Tax Rate - The income tax rate in 2015 is expected to range from 31.5% to 33.0%.

Share Repurchases and Debt - The company expects to repurchase shares of its outstanding stock in a range of $80-$120 million. Debt is expected to range between 1.5x and 1.8x 2015 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA").

Capital Expenditures - Capital expenditures for 2015 are expected to approximate $40 to $45 million, consisting of company-owned unit development in the U.S. and Beijing, China, technology-related projects, and routine capital replacement.

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;
  • the impact that product recalls, food quality or safety issues, incidences of foodborne illness, food contamination and other general public health concerns, including potential epidemics, 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 our sole source of supply of cheese or limited source of suppliers for other key ingredients or more generally due to weather, drought, disease, geopolitical or other disruptions beyond our control;
  • increased risks associated with our international operations, including economic and political conditions, instability in our international markets, fluctuations in currency exchange rates, 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 impact of changes in interest rates on the company or our franchisees;
  • 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;
  • 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; and
  • 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.

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 28, 2014. 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.
