CANTON, Mass., Aug. 1, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DNKN), the parent company of Dunkin' and Baskin-Robbins (BR), today reported results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2019.

"Continuing the momentum established earlier in the year, our second quarter performance was highlighted by double-digit sales growth of espresso, our national value platforms, and terrific consumer reception to our latest menu innovation, our better-for-you Power Platform. We're attracting a new consumer with both espresso and our Power Platform and will continue to bring more on-trend innovation to fuel guests throughout the day," said David Hoffmann, Dunkin' Brands Chief Executive Officer and President of Dunkin' U.S. "Additionally, as a result of a highly-collaborative process with our franchisees, the Next Generation restaurant design, with nearly 300 already in the marketplace, is now the standard image for all new builds and remodels. This new store design takes our commitment to serving "great coffee, fast" to the next level through an optimized mobile order pick-up experience, iced beverage tap system, and drive-thru enhancements that make it even easier to use Dunkin' on-the-go. We are pleased with the progress we are making against our Dunkin' U.S. Blueprint for Growth, largely driven by our strong franchisee/franchisor relationship, which continues to be our number one asset."

"The investment our system made in espresso equipment and training in 2018 continued to deliver strong returns. Espresso, a critical component of our beverage-led strategy, is now our fastest growing category with sales for the second quarter up more than 40 percent versus the prior year period," said Kate Jaspon, Chief Financial Officer, Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. "The introduction of Dunkin' Handcrafted Signature Lattes was a key contributor to total espresso growth and helped drive our second quarter performance, including 1.7 percent growth in Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales, and nearly 8 percent operating income growth for Dunkin' Brands."

(1) 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 certain other items, 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. See "Non-GAAP Measures and Statistical Data" and "Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for further detail.

 

(2) Systemwide sales include sales at franchisee-operated restaurants, including joint ventures. While we do not record sales by franchisees, licensees, or joint ventures 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 systemwide sales information aids in understanding how we derive royalty revenue and in evaluating our performance relative to competitors.

Global systemwide sales growth of 3.8% in the second quarter was primarily attributable to global store development, Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales growth, and Dunkin' International comparable store sales growth.

Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales grew 1.7% in the second quarter as an increase in average ticket was partially offset by a decrease in traffic. The increase in average ticket was driven by strategic pricing increases coupled with favorable mix shift to premium priced espresso and cold brew beverages, as well as continued adoption of our Go2s value platform, which had an average ticket of nearly $9.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. comparable store sales declined 1.4% in the second quarter as a decrease in traffic was partially offset by an increase in average ticket. The increase in average ticket was driven by strategic pricing increases.

In the second quarter, Dunkin' Brands franchisees and licensees opened 109 net new restaurants globally. This included 46 net new Dunkin' U.S. locations, 43 Baskin-Robbins International locations, 11 Dunkin' International locations, and 9 Baskin-Robbins U.S. locations. Additionally, Dunkin' U.S. franchisees remodeled 30 restaurants and Baskin-Robbins U.S. franchisees remodeled 12 restaurants during the quarter.

Revenues for the second quarter increased $8.7 million, or 2.5%, compared to the prior year period due primarily to an increase in royalty income as a result of Dunkin' U.S. systemwide sales growth, as well as an increase in rental income, offset by a decrease in advertising fees and related income. The increase in rental income resulted from the adoption of the new lease accounting standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, which requires gross presentation of certain lease costs that the Company passes through to franchisees. See "Adoption of New Accounting Standard" for further detail. The decrease in advertising fees and related income was due primarily to a decrease in gift card program service fees, offset by an increase in advertising fees as a result of systemwide sales growth.

Operating income and adjusted operating income for the second quarter increased $8.8 million, or 7.7%, and $7.5 million, or 6.2%, respectively, from the prior year period primarily as a result of the increase in royalty income, as well as other operating income in the current quarter compared to other operating loss in the prior year period.

Net income for the second quarter decreased by $0.9 million, or 1.4%, compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of a $13.1 million loss on debt extinguishment recorded in the current period, offset by the increase in operating income, an increase in interest income earned on our cash balances, and a decrease in income tax expense as a result of the decrease in income in the current period. The loss on debt extinguishment was due to the write-off of debt issuance costs in conjunction with a refinancing transaction completed during the second quarter.

Adjusted net income for the second quarter increased by $7.6 million, or 11.7%, compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of the increases in adjusted operating income and interest income, offset by an increase in income tax expense.

Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter decreased by 1.4% to $0.71 compared to the prior year period as a result of the decrease in net income. Diluted adjusted earnings per share increased by 11.7% to $0.86 compared to the prior year period as a result of the increase in adjusted net income. Excluding the impact of recognized excess tax benefits, both diluted earnings per share and diluted adjusted earnings per share would have been lower by approximately $0.02 for each of the second quarters of fiscal years 2019 and 2018.

Dunkin' U.S. second quarter revenues of $166.6 million represented an increase of 5.8% compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily a result of an increase in royalty income driven by systemwide sales growth, as well as an increase in rental income, offset by a decrease in franchise fees due primarily to franchisee incentives provided as part of the investments to support the Dunkin' U.S. Blueprint for Growth that are being recognized over the remaining term of each respective franchise agreement. The increase in rental income resulted from the adoption of the new lease accounting standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. See "Adoption of New Accounting Standard" for further detail.

Dunkin' U.S. segment profit in the second quarter increased to $127.1 million, an increase of $7.5 million over the prior year period, driven primarily by the increase in royalty income and a decrease in general and administrative expenses due primarily to expenses incurred in the second quarter of fiscal year 2018 to support the Dunkin' U.S. Blueprint for Growth investments, offset by the decrease in franchise fees and a decrease in rental margin. The decrease in rental margin was due primarily to amortization of certain lease intangible assets, previously recorded within amortization, now included within occupancy expenses—franchised restaurants.  See "Adoption of New Accounting Standard" for further detail.

Dunkin' International second quarter systemwide sales increased 8.7% from the prior year period driven by sales growth in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and South Korea. Sales across all regions were negatively impacted by unfavorable foreign exchange rates. On a constant currency basis, systemwide sales increased by approximately 14%.

Dunkin' International second quarter revenues of $7.5 million represented an increase of 42.1% from the prior year period. The increase in revenues was primarily a result of an increase in franchise fees due primarily to additional deferred revenue recognized in the current period upon closure of an international market, as well as an increase in royalty income driven by systemwide sales growth.

Segment profit for Dunkin' International increased $2.0 million to $5.5 million in the second quarter primarily as a result of the increase in revenues, offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. second quarter revenues increased 1.3% from the prior year period to $14.3 million due primarily to increases in sales of ice cream and other products and rental income, offset by a decrease in royalty income driven by a systemwide sales decline, as well as a decrease in other revenues. The increase in rental income resulted from the adoption of the new lease accounting standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019. See "Adoption of New Accounting Standard" for further detail.

Segment profit for Baskin-Robbins U.S. decreased to $10.1 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 5.1%, primarily as a result of an increase in general and administrative expenses, as well as the decreases in royalty income and other revenues.

Baskin-Robbins International systemwide sales decreased 1.5% in the second quarter compared to the prior year period driven by sales declines in Japan, the Middle East, and Asia, offset by sales growth in South Korea. Sales across all regions were negatively impacted by unfavorable foreign exchange rates. On a constant currency basis, systemwide sales increased by approximately 2%.

Baskin-Robbins International second quarter revenues of $32.7 million represented a decrease of 3.9% from the prior year period due primarily to decreases in sales of ice cream and other products and royalty income, offset by an increase in franchise fees. Systemwide sales and sales of ice cream products are not directly correlated within a given period due to certain licensees sourcing their own ice cream products, the lag between shipment of products to licensees and retail sales at franchised restaurants, and the overall timing of deliveries between fiscal quarters. The increase in franchise fees in the second quarter was due primarily to additional deferred revenue recognized in the current period upon closure of certain international markets.

Second quarter segment profit increased 4.9% from the prior year period to $12.1 million primarily as a result of increases in net income from our South Korea and Japan joint ventures, as well as the increase in franchise fees, offset by the decrease in royalty income.

Expenses for the U.S. Advertising Funds were equivalent to revenues in each period, resulting in no segment profit.

COMPANY UPDATES

  • The Company today announced that the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.3750 per share, payable on September 12, 2019, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 3, 2019.

FISCAL YEAR 2019 TARGETS
As described below, the Company is reiterating and updating certain of its 2019 performance targets.

  • The Company continues to expect low-single digit comparable store sales growth for Dunkin' U.S. and now expects flat to slightly negative comparable store sales growth for Baskin-Robbins U.S.
  • The Company continues to expect to be at the low end of the range of 200 to 250 net new Dunkin' U.S. units. It expects new Dunkin' U.S. restaurants opened in 2019 will contribute at least $130 million in systemwide sales in 2019.
  • The Company continues to expect Baskin-Robbins U.S. franchisees to close approximately ten net units.
  • The Company continues to expect low-to-mid single digit percent revenue growth.

Adoption of New Accounting Standard

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued new guidance for lease accounting, which replaces existing lease accounting guidance. The Company adopted this new guidance in fiscal year 2019 using the modified retrospective transition method, and elected the option to not restate comparative periods in the year of adoption, including amounts as of December 29, 2018 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. As a result of adopting this new guidance in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, the Company recognized operating lease assets and liabilities of $388.8 million and $435.1 million, respectively, as of the first day of fiscal year 2019. The adoption of this new guidance also resulted in the recognition of additional rental income and occupancy expenses–franchised restaurants of $4.7 million and $9.4 million for the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, respectively, related to certain lease costs that the Company passes through to franchisees. Additionally, amortization of certain lease intangible assets, previously recorded within amortization of other intangible assets, is now recorded as part of the amortization of operating lease assets within occupancy expenses–franchised restaurants. Amortization of other intangible assets for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 includes $0.6 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of amortization expense related to these lease intangible assets. Additional information regarding the Company's adoption of the new lease accounting guidance is contained in our most recent Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 8, 2019.

Certain statements contained herein are not based on historical fact and are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the applicable securities laws and regulations. Generally, these statements can be identified by the use of words such as "anticipate," "believe," "could," "estimate," "expect," "feel," "forecast," "intend," "may," "plan," "potential," "project," "should," or "would," and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the ongoing level of profitability of franchisees and licensees; our franchisees' and licensees' ability to sustain same store sales growth; changes in working relationships with our franchisees and licensees and the actions of our franchisees and licensees; our master franchisees' relationships with sub-franchisees; the success of our investments in the Dunkin' U.S. Blueprint for Growth; the strength of our brand in the markets in which we compete; changes in competition within the quick-service restaurant segment of the food industry; changes in consumer behavior resulting from changes in technologies or alternative methods of delivery; economic and political conditions in the countries where we operate; our substantial indebtedness; our ability to protect our intellectual property rights; consumer preferences, spending patterns and demographic trends; the impact of seasonal changes, including weather effects, on our business; the success of our growth strategy and international development; changes in commodity and food prices, particularly coffee, dairy products and sugar, and other operating costs; shortages of coffee; failure of our network and information technology systems; interruptions or shortages in the supply of products to our franchisees and licensees; the impact of food borne-illness or food safety issues or adverse public or media opinions regarding the health effects of consuming our products; our ability to collect royalty payments from our franchisees and licensees; the ability of our franchisees and licensees to open new restaurants and keep existing restaurants in operation; our ability to retain key personnel; any failure to protect consumer payment card data or other personally identifiable information; and catastrophic events.

Forward-looking statements reflect management's analysis as of the date of this press release. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations are more fully described in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including under the section headed "Risk Factors" in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K. 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 operating income growth, 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 operating income growth, 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. and Subsidiaries Non-GAAP Reconciliations."

Additionally, the Company has included metrics such as systemwide sales 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.

Systemwide sales include sales at franchisee-operated restaurants, including joint ventures. While we do not record sales by franchisees, licensees, or joint ventures 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 systemwide sales information aids in understanding how we derive royalty revenue and in evaluating our performance relative to competitors.

The Company uses "Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales growth (decline)" and "BR U.S. comparable store sales growth (decline)," which are calculated by including only sales from franchisee-operated restaurants that have been open at least 78 weeks and that have reported sales in the current and comparable prior year week.

The Company uses "Dunkin' International comparable store sales growth (decline)" and "BR International comparable store sales growth (decline)," which generally represents the growth in local currency average monthly sales for franchisee-operated restaurants, including joint ventures, that have been open at least 13 months and that have reported sales in the current and comparable prior year month.
