Boyd Hoback, President & CEO said, “We have set the stage for accelerated development through the acquisition of Bad Daddy’s International (BDI) and we now have two brands that are both performing exceptionally well, with the results from operations exceeding our expectations so far. While we still have work to do completing the integration of BDI, we have a good pipeline of new sites for fiscal 2016 with three under construction and one more set to begin next month. We anticipate that we will approximately double the number of company operated Bad Daddy’s by the end of 2016 with our longer term unit growth target of 40% over the following few years.”

Hoback added, “Our three year compound same store sales increases at Good Times were 34.8% for the quarter, which we are obviously thrilled with. We had one store closed for a complete remodel for 6 ½ weeks during the quarter. We rolled out Housemade Pickles and Fried Pickles in August, our breakfast sales continue to grow by 10 to 15% over the prior year each month and we are on track with our remodeling of older stores, all of which will hopefully continue our sales growth.”

On May 7, 2015, the Company reported that it had successfully completed a public offering of 2,783,810 shares of common stock, which included the full exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option, at $8.15 per share for net proceeds, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses, of approximately $20.6 million. Simultaneously and using the proceeds of the common stock offering, Good Times closed the purchase of all of the ownership interests in Bad Daddy’s International, LLC, which owns the Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar concept and ownership interests in seven Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants, for a total purchase price of $21.5 million consisting of $19 million of cash and a promissory note in the amount of $2.5 million.

Fiscal 2015 and Preliminary 2016 Outlook: The Company issued expectations for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 with sales of approximately $14 million and Adjusted EBITDA* of $900,000 to $1 million including approximately $375,000 of preopening expense and for its full fiscal 2015 year sales of approximately $43 million and $2.4 to $2.5 million of Adjusted EBITDA* including approximately $950,000 of preopening expense.

The Company currently anticipates the following for fiscal 2016:

  • Total revenues of $68 million to $73 million
  • Two new Good Times restaurants
  • 8 to 10 new Bad Daddy’s restaurants
  • Total Adjusted EBITDA* of $4.8 million to $5.5 million including approximately $2.5 million of preopening expense.

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes restaurant level occupancy costs, which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but excludes depreciation. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant level assets, because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling, general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because, similar to depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance. Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The tables above set forth certain unaudited information for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2015 and June 30, 2014, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the components of restaurant operating costs, which are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA     $ 1,228     $ 499     $ 1,659     $ 642  
                                   

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by GAAP, and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. This measure is presented because we believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for evaluating our ongoing results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization and further adjustments to reflect the additions and eliminations presented in the table above.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because: (i) we believe it is a useful measure for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization expenses and asset disposals, closure costs and restaurant impairments and (ii) we use adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark for certain of our cash incentive plans and to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure permits a comparative assessment of our operating performance relative to our performance based on our GAAP results, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. Companies within our industry exhibit significant variations with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense and income tax rates) and differences in book depreciation of property, plant and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. Our management believes that adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company comparisons within our industry by eliminating some of these foregoing variations. Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies, and our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by excluded or unusual items.
