(b) Represents the change in year-over-year sales for the same base of restaurants for the same fiscal periods. Comparable sales results for restaurants operating outside of the United Statesare reported on a constant dollar basis, which excludes the impact of foreign currency translation.

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. Management believes the presentation of global restaurant sales growth excluding the impact of foreign currency provides investors with useful information regarding underlying sales trends by presenting sales growth excluding the external factor of foreign currency exchange. 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 $24.0 million, or 6.0%, for the second quarter of 2016 and increased $20.3 million, or 2.4%, for the six months ended June 26, 2016. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $18.3 million, or 9.8%, and $26.7 million, or 7.0%, for the three and six months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 5.6% and 3.2% in comparable sales and increases of 5.1% and 4.6% in equivalent units, including 20 restaurants acquired from franchisees during the first quarter.
  • Domestic franchise royalties and fees increased approximately $2.0 million, or 8.7%, and$2.9 million, or 5.9%, for the three and six months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 4.5% and 2.1% in comparable sales and reduced levels of royalty incentives in 2016.
  • Domestic commissary and other sales increased $1.5 million, or 0.9%, and decreased$13.4 million, or 3.9%, for the three and six months, respectively. The increase of $1.5 million for the three-month period was primarily due to higher commissary sales from an increase in volumes, partially offset by lower pricing for certain commodities, including cheese, and an increase in online fee revenues for our online and mobile ordering business. These increases were partially offset by the prior year inclusion of approximately $1.3 millionof FOCUS equipment sales to franchisees which had no significant impact on 2015 operating results. The decrease of $13.4 million for the six-month period was primarily due to lower FOCUS equipment sales of approximately $9.8 million and lower domestic commissary sales due to lower pricing for certain commodities, partially offset by higher domestic commissary sales volumes.
  • International revenues increased approximately $2.1 million, or 8.1%, and $4.2 million, or 8.0%, for the three and six months, respectively, primarily due to the following:
    • International revenues include sublease rental revenue in the United Kingdom of approximately $1.7 million and $3.3 million for the three- and six-months, respectively, which were shown net of the rental expenses in the prior year. The change had no impact on income before income taxes.
    • Royalties and commissary revenues were higher due to an increase in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 5.3% and 5.5% for the three- and six-month periods, respectively, calculated on a constant dollar basis.
    • China Company-owned restaurant revenues were $1.3 million and $2.6 million lower than the prior year three- and six-month periods, respectively, primarily due to negative comparable sales and fewer restaurants.

Foreign currency exchange rates reduced revenues by approximately $2.2 million and $4.0 million for the three- and six-months periods, respectively.

Operating Highlights

Second quarter 2016 income before income taxes increased approximately $17.7 millioncompared to the prior year period and increased $5.4 million, or 18.1%, compared to the adjusted second quarter 2015 income before income taxes. The increase of $5.4 million was primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants increased approximately $700,000 primarily due to a 5.6% increase in comparable sales and lower commodity costs, partially offset by higher non-owned automobile claims costs.
  • Domestic commissaries income increased approximately $1.0 million primarily due to higher sales volumes.
  • North America franchising income increased approximately $2.4 million primarily due to higher royalties attributable to the 4.5% increase in comparable sales and lower sales and development incentives.
  • International income increased approximately $600,000 primarily due to higher royalties from an increase in the number of restaurants and an increase in comparable sales. This increase was somewhat offset by the impact of negative foreign currency exchange rates of approximately $500,000.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses were approximately $600,000 lower primarily due to lower legal costs.

Income before income taxes increased $22.6 million for the six month period ended June 26, 2016, compared to the prior year period and increased $10.4 million, or 15.6%, compared to the adjusted 2015 income before income taxes. The increase of $10.4 million was primarily due to the same reasons noted for the three-month period.

The effective income tax rates were 31.5% and 31.9% for the three and six months ended June 26, 2016, representing an increase of 2.6% for the three-month period and no change from the prior year six-month period. The legal settlement reduced our 2015 income tax rates by approximately 2.5% and 0.5% for the three- and six-month periods, respectively. Our effective income tax rates may fluctuate from quarter to quarter for various reasons, including the timing of various deductions and credits.

The company's free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the first six months of 2016 and 2015, was as follows (in thousands):

         
        Six Months Ended
        June 26,     June 28,
        2016     2015
               
Net cash provided by operating activities (a)       $ 75,123       $ 77,982  
Purchases of property and equipment         (24,001 )       (16,501 )
Free cash flow       $ 51,122       $ 61,481  
               

(a) The decrease of approximately $2.9 million was primarily due to the payment of approximately $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2016 for the previously mentioned legal settlement and unfavorable changes in working capital items, partially offset by higher net income.

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. 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 liquidity or performance than the company's GAAP measures.

See the Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for additional information concerning our operating results and cash flow for the three and six months ended June 26, 2016.

Item Impacting Comparability - Non-GAAP Presentation

The following table reconciles our GAAP financial results to our adjusted financial results, which are non-GAAP measures, for the three and six month periods ended June 26, 2016:

               
        Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended
        June 26,     June 28,     June 26,     June 28,

Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted       $ 0.61     $ 0.47     $ 1.29     $ 1.02
                           

The 2015 legal settlement expense represents a pre-tax expense of $12.3 million for a collective and class action, Perrin v. Papa John's International, Inc. and Papa John's USA, Inc.

The non-GAAP adjusted results shown above, which exclude the 2015 legal settlement, should not be construed as a substitute for or a better indicator of the company's performance than the company's GAAP results. Management believes presenting the financial information excluding the legal settlement is important for purposes of comparison to prior year results. In addition, management uses this metric to evaluate the company's underlying operating performance and to analyze trends.
