1 Franchisee-reported sales include sales at franchisee-operated restaurants, including joint ventures. While we do not record sales by franchisees or licensees as revenue and such sales are not included in our consolidated financial statements, we believe that this operating measure is important in obtaining an understanding of our financial performance. We believe franchisee-reported sales information aids in understanding how we derive royalty revenue and in evaluating our performance relative to competitors.

     

2 Adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, and adjusted net income are non-GAAP measures reflecting operating income and net income adjusted for amortization of intangible assets, long-lived asset impairments, and other non-recurring, infrequent, or unusual charges, net of the tax impact of such adjustments in the case of adjusted net income. Diluted adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP measure calculated using adjusted net income. Please refer to "Non-GAAP Measures and Statistical Data" and "Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for further detail.

Global systemwide sales growth in the second quarter was primarily attributable to global store development and Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth (which includes stores open 54 weeks or more).

Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth in the second quarter was driven by increased average ticket and higher traffic resulting from our focus on operational excellence and product and marketing innovation. Product and marketing innovations resulted in strong beverage sales growth, led by hot and iced coffee and espresso-based beverages; continued breakfast sandwich momentum across core and limited time offer sandwiches including the Bacon Guacamole Flatbread sandwich; and donut category growth driven by the Croissant Donut, Cheesecake Squares, and limited-time-offer OREO® and Chips Ahoy!® donuts. The in-restaurant K-Cup and packaged coffee categories had a significant negative impact on second quarter comparable store sales. Traffic accounted for approximately 60 basis points of the comparable store sales growth in the quarter.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. comparable store sales growth was driven by increased sales of cups and cones, beverages, desserts, and sundaes and increased sales of cakes, stimulated by strong year-over-year growth of online cake ordering.

In the second quarter, Dunkin' Brands franchisees and licensees opened 154 net new restaurants around the globe. This included 80 net new Dunkin' Donuts U.S. locations, 55 net new Baskin-Robbins International locations, 13 net new Dunkin' Donuts International locations, and 6 net new Baskin-Robbins U.S. locations. Additionally, Dunkin' Donuts U.S. franchisees remodeled 127 restaurants and Baskin-Robbins U.S. franchisees remodeled 41 restaurants during the quarter.

Revenues for the second quarter increased 10.7 percent compared to the prior year period due primarily to increased royalty income as a result of systemwide sales growth, an increase in sales at company-operated restaurants due to a net increase in the number of company-operated restaurants, increased sales of ice cream and other products, and licensing fees earned from the sale of Dunkin' K-Cup® pods.

Operating income and adjusted operating income for the second quarter increased $5.0 million, or 5.7 percent, and $8.8 million, or 9.4 percent, respectively, from the prior year period primarily as a result of the increases in royalty income, ice cream margin due primarily to the increase in sales, and licensing fees earned from the sale of Dunkin' K-Cup® pods. The increases in revenues were offset by an increase in personnel costs driven by incremental incentive compensation accruals and a decrease in other operating income as the prior year period included a gain recognized in connection with the sale of the company-operated restaurants in the Atlanta market. Additionally, operating income for the second quarter was unfavorably impacted by costs incurred related to the final settlement of our Canadian pension plan as a result of the closure of our Canadian ice cream manufacturing plant in fiscal year 2012.

Net income for the second quarter decreased by $3.9 million, or 8.4 percent, compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of additional interest expense of $8.3 million driven by additional borrowings incurred in conjunction with the securitization refinancing transaction completed in January 2015, offset by the $5.0 million increase in operating income.

Adjusted net income for the second quarter decreased by $1.6 million, or 3.2 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2014 primarily as a result of increases in interest expense and income tax expense, offset by the $8.8 million increase in adjusted operating income.

Diluted earnings per share increased by 2.3% to $0.44 for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior year period as a result of a decrease in shares outstanding, offset by the decrease in net income. Diluted adjusted earnings per share increased by 6.4 percent to $0.50 for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior year period as a result of the decrease in shares outstanding, offset by the decrease in adjusted net income. The decrease in shares outstanding from the prior year period is due primarily to the repurchase of shares, offset by the exercise of stock options.

 Dunkin' Donuts U.S. second quarter revenues of $149.8 million represented an increase of 9.8 percent over the prior year period. The increase was primarily a result of increased royalty income due to an increase in systemwide sales, as well as an increase in sales at company-operated restaurants driven by a net increase in the number of company-operated restaurants. Also contributing to revenue growth was an increase in rental income due primarily to increases in the number of leases and average rent per lease, and an increase in other revenues driven by transfer fee income and gains from refranchising transactions.

Dunkin' Donuts U.S. segment profit in the second quarter increased $7.1 million over the prior year period to $108.1 million, which was driven primarily by growth in royalty income and other revenues. The increases in revenues were offset by an increase in personnel costs driven by incremental incentive compensation accruals and a decrease in other operating income as the prior year period included a gain recognized in connection with the sale of the company-operated restaurants in the Atlanta market.

Dunkin' Donuts International second quarter systemwide sales decreased 1.8 percent from the prior year period. Sales declines in South Korea and South America were offset by sales growth in Asia and the Middle East. Sales in South Korea, Europe, South America, and Asia were negatively impacted by unfavorable foreign exchange rates. On a constant currency basis, systemwide sales increased by approximately 6 percent. Comparable store sales were negatively impacted as a result of the MERS outbreak in South Korea and a shift in the timing of Ramadan, which impacted the Middle East and someSoutheast Asia markets.

Dunkin' Donuts International second quarter revenues of $5.4 million represented an increase of 19.9% over the prior year period. The increase in revenues was primarily a result of increased franchise fees due to additional gross development, as well as an increase in royalty income.

Segment profit for Dunkin' Donuts International increased $0.2 million to $3.2 million in the second quarter primarily as a result of revenue growth, offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses and a decrease in income from our South Korea joint venture. A portion of the increase in general and administrative expenses can be attributed to an increase in bad debt expense.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. second quarter revenue increased 4.4 percent from the prior year period to $13.5 million due primarily to an increase in other revenues driven by an increase in licensing income and an increase in royalty income, offset by a decrease in sales of ice cream and other products which can be attributed to a shift in certain franchisees now purchasing ice cream from our third party ice cream manufacturer.

Segment profit for Baskin-Robbins U.S. increased $0.1 million in the second quarter, or 0.7 percent, over the prior year period primarily as a result of the increases in other revenues and royalty income, offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses due primarily to expenses incurred related to brand-building activities and incentive compensation accruals.

Baskin-Robbins International systemwide sales decreased 4.7 percent in the second quarter compared to the prior year period driven by unfavorable foreign exchange in Japan and South Korea, offset by increases in sales in Asia, the Middle East, and South Korea. On a constant currency basis, systemwide sales increased by approximately 4 percent. Comparable store sales were negatively impacted as a result of the MERS outbreak in South Korea and a shift in the timing of Ramadan, which impacted the Middle East and some Southeast Asia markets.

Baskin-Robbins International second quarter revenues increased 7.7 percent over the prior year period to $36.2 million due primarily to an increase in sales of ice cream and other products in the Middle East driven primarily by timing of orders, offset by a decrease in royalty income.

Second quarter segment profit increased 9.2 percent from the prior year period to $12.8 million as a result of an increase in net margin on ice cream driven primarily by the increase in sales, as well as favorable results from our Japan joint venture compared to the prior year, offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses and a decrease in royalty income.

Except as required by applicable law, we do not undertake to publicly update or revise any of these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Measures and Statistical Data

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP measurements such as adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net income, and diluted adjusted earnings per share, which present operating results on a basis adjusted for certain items. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures as key performance measures for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide our investors with useful information regarding our historical operating results. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Use of the terms adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net income, and diluted adjusted earnings per share may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are reconciled from the respective measures determined under GAAP in the attached tables "Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations."

Additionally, the Company has included metrics such as franchisee-reported sales, systemwide sales growth, and comparable store sales growth, which are commonly used statistical measures in the quick service restaurant industry and are important to understanding the Company's performance.

Franchisee-reported sales include sales at franchisee-operated restaurants, including joint ventures. While we do not record sales by franchisees or licensees as revenue and such sales are not included in our consolidated financial statements, we believe that this operating measure is important in obtaining an understanding of our financial performance. We believe franchisee-reported sales information aids in understanding how we derive royalty revenue and in evaluating our performance relative to competitors.

The Company uses "systemwide sales growth" to refer to the percentage change in sales at both franchisee- and company-operated restaurants from the comparable period of the prior year. Changes in systemwide sales are driven by changes in comparable store sales and changes in the number of restaurants.

The Company uses "DD U.S. comparable store sales growth," "BR U.S. comparable store sales growth," "DD International comparable store sales growth," and "BR International comparable store sales growth," which are calculated by including only sales from franchisee- and company-operated restaurants that have been open at least 54 weeks and that have reported sales in the current and comparable prior year week.
