The Company also reported the following:

  • License royalties were $18,340,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 26, 2021, (“fiscal 2022 period”) as compared to $18,791,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020. During the fiscal 2022 period, royalties earned under the retail agreement, including the foodservice program, with John Morrell & Co., decreased 3% to $16,922,000, as compared to $17,460,000 of royalties earned during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020.
  • In the Branded Product Program, which features the sale of Nathan’s hot dogs to the foodservice industry, income from operations increased by approximately $1,891,000 to $3,415,000 during the fiscal 2022 period, as compared to $1,524,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020.  Sales were $35,059,000 during the fiscal 2022 period, compared to sales of $14,447,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020, while the volume of hot dogs sold by the Company increased 140%. Sales and income from operations for the Branded Product Program have increased as certain government mandated restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic continued to ease with approved vaccines being more widely distributed and administered. As a result, most of our Branded Product Program customers have reopened adhering to state and local guidelines, such as professional sports venues, amusement parks, shopping malls and movie theaters. Our average selling price, which is partially correlated to the beef markets, decreased by approximately 0.3% compared to the prior year period.
  • Sales from Company-operated restaurants were $7,766,000 during the fiscal 2022 period compared to $4,928,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in customer traffic especially at our two Coney Island locations as a result of the easing of certain government mandated restrictions attributed to the public health measures taken to reduce exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
  • Revenues from franchise operations were $2,074,000 during the fiscal 2022 period, compared to $667,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020. Total royalties were $1,837,000 during the fiscal 2022 period as compared to $519,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020. Total franchise fee income was $237,000 during the fiscal 2022 period compared to $148,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020. The increase in franchise fees and royalties during the fiscal 2022 period was primarily due to an increase in franchise restaurant sales of $19,441,000 to $28,629,000 as compared to $9,188,000 for the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020 as we continue to lap the significant impact of COVID-19. Three new franchised outlets and eighteen new branded menu program outlets opened during the fiscal 2022 period.
  • During the fiscal 2022 period, we recorded Advertising Fund revenue and expense in the amount of $958,000 as compared to $692,000 during the twenty-six weeks ended September 27, 2020.
  • During the fiscal 2022 period, the Board of Directors declared two quarterly cash dividends of $0.35 per share totaling $2,880,000.
  • Effective November 5, 2021, the Board of Directors declared its quarterly cash dividend of $0.35 per share payable on December 3, 2021 to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 22, 2021.

    Franchise restaurant sales are not revenues of the Company and are not included in the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements.

Certain Non-GAAP Financial Information:

In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP"), the Company is disclosing EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as net income, excluding (i) interest expense; (ii) provision for income taxes and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense. The Company is also disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as EBITDA, excluding (i) stock-based compensation that the Company believes will impact the comparability of its results of operations.

The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors to assist in assessing and understanding the Company's operating performance and underlying trends in the Company's business because EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are (i) among the measures used by management in evaluating performance and (ii) are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a common performance measure.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under US GAAP and should not be viewed as alternatives to net income or other measures of financial performance or liquidity in conformity with US GAAP. Additionally, our definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may differ from other companies. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-US GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in conjunction with, data presented in accordance with US GAAP. Please see the table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income.
