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 $33.2 million, or 8.5%, for the third quarter of 2016 and increased $53.4 million, or 4.4%, for the nine months ended September 25, 2016. The increases in revenues were primarily due to the following:

*Domestic company-owned restaurant sales increased $19.0 million, or 10.5%, and $45.7 million, or 8.1%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 6.3% and 4.2% in comparable sales and increases of 5.1% and 4.8% in equivalent units, including 20 restaurants acquired from franchisees during the first quarter of 2016.

*Domestic franchise royalties and fees increased approximately $2.5 million, or 11.2%, and $5.4 million, or 7.5%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to increases of 5.1% and 3.0% in comparable sales and reduced levels of royalty incentives in 2016.

*Domestic commissary and other sales increased $9.7 million, or 6.1%, and decreased $3.7 million, or 0.7%, for the three and nine months, respectively. The increase of $9.7 million for the three-month period was primarily due to higher commissary sales from an increase in volumes. The decrease of $3.7 million for the nine-month period was primarily due to the prior year inclusion of approximately $9.8 million of point of sale equipment sales to franchisees which had no significant impact on 2015 operating results. This decrease was partially offset by higher domestic commissary sales volumes.

*International revenues increased approximately $1.9 million, or 7.2%, and $6.1 million, or 7.7%, for the three and nine months, respectively, primarily due to the following:

  • International revenues for 2016 include sublease rental revenue in the United Kingdom of approximately $2.2 million and $5.6 million for the three- and nine-months, respectively, which were shown net of the rental expenses in the prior year.
  • Royalties were higher due to an increase in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales of 7.6% and 6.2% for the three- and nine-month periods, respectively, calculated on a constant dollar basis. Commissary revenues were also higher for the nine-month period due to an increase in the number of restaurants and increases in comparable sales.
  • China Company-owned restaurant revenues were $1.4 million and $4.0 million lower than the prior year three- and nine-month periods, respectively, primarily due to negative comparable sales and fewer restaurants in 2016.
     

Foreign currency exchange rates reduced International revenues by approximately $3.7 million and $7.7 million for the three- and nine-months periods, respectively.

Operating Highlights

The tables below summarize income before income taxes on a reporting segment basis for the three and nine months ended September 25, 2016 and September 27, 2015, and reconcile our GAAP financial results to the adjusted (non-GAAP measure as detailed in the "Item Impacting Comparability Non-GAAP Presentation" table) financial results, excluding the legal settlement in 2015, for the nine months ended September 27, 2015:

Third quarter 2016 income before income taxes increased approximately $5.4 million, or 20.5%, compared to the prior year period. The increase of $5.4 million was primarily due to the following:

  • Domestic company-owned restaurants increased approximately $3.5 million primarily due to a 6.3% increase in comparable sales, a 5.1% increase in equivalent units, and lower commodity costs.
  • Domestic commissaries income increased approximately $1.1 million primarily due to higher sales volumes.
  • North America franchising income increased approximately $2.7 million primarily due to higher royalties attributable to the 5.1% increase in comparable sales and lower sales and development incentives.
  • International income decreased approximately $100,000 primarily due to a non-recurring charge of approximately $800,000 to record our United Kingdom lease arrangements on a straight line basis. This decrease was substantially offset by higher royalties from an increase in the number of restaurants and an increase in comparable sales. Foreign currency exchange rates also had a negative impact of approximately $400,000, which was primarily attributable to the United Kingdom.
  • All others income increased approximately $900,000 primarily due to improved operating results in our online and mobile ordering business and our print and promotions subsidiary.
  • Unallocated corporate expenses increased approximately $2.9 million primarily due to increases in management incentive costs from higher annual operating results and higher interest costs due to an increase in outstanding debt.

Income before income taxes increased $28.0 million for the nine month period ended September 25, 2016, compared to the prior year period and increased $15.7 million, or 17.0%, compared to the adjusted 2015 income before income taxes. The increase of $15.7 million was primarily due to the same reasons noted for the three-month period, except as follows:

International income increased approximately $2.2 million primarily due to higher royalties and commissary revenues primarily due to an increase in units and higher comparable sales and lower advertising spending. These increases were partially offset by the previously mentioned charge of $800,000 for our United Kingdom lease arrangements. Foreign currency exchange rates had a negative impact of approximately $1.7 million.
The effective income tax rates were 28.4% and 30.9% for the three and nine months ended September 25, 2016, representing increases of 0.7% and 0.3% for the three- and nine-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 nine months of 2016 and 2015, was as follows (in thousands):

     
      Nine Months Ended
      Sept. 25     Sept. 27
      2016     2015
             
Net cash provided by operating activities (a)     $ 115,982       $ 119,738  
Purchases of property and equipment (b)       (38,954 )       (26,508 )
Free cash flow     $ 77,028       $ 93,230  
             

 

(a) The decrease of approximately $3.8 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 other unfavorable changes in working capital items, partially offset by higher net income.
   
(b) The increase of $12.4 million was primarily due to new restaurant builds, initiatives in our online and mobile ordering business, and construction costs for our new domestic commissary in Georgia, which is expected to open in 2017.
   

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 nine months ended September 25, 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 nine months ended September 25, 2016 and September 27, 2015:

       
      Nine Months Ended
      Sept. 25,     Sept. 27,
(In thousands, except per share amounts)     2016     2015
             
Income before income taxes, as reported     $ 108,236     $ 80,224
Legal settlement expense       -       12,278
Income before income taxes, as adjusted     $ 108,236     $ 92,502
             
Net income, as reported     $ 70,190     $ 50,987
Legal settlement expense       -       7,986
Net income, as adjusted     $ 70,190     $ 58,973
             
Diluted earnings per share, as reported     $ 1.86     $ 1.27
Legal settlement expense       -       0.20
Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted     $ 1.86     $ 1.47
                 

The 2015 legal settlement expense represents a pre-tax expense of $12.3 million for a collective and class action litigation, 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.
