Bloomin' Brands Results

Bloomin’ Brands Announces 2019 Q2 Diluted EPS of $0.32 and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $0.36

Q2 Comparable Restaurant Sales Growth of 1.3% at Outback Steakhouse

Bloomin' Brands

Bloomin’ Brands, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLMN) today reported results for the second quarter 2019 (“Q2 2019”) compared to the second quarter 2018 (“Q2 2018”).

Highlights for Q2 2019 include the following:

  • Comparable restaurant sales increased 1.3% at U.S. Outback Steakhouse
  • Combined U.S. comparable restaurant sales increased 0.6%
  • Comparable restaurant sales increased 3.5% for Outback Steakhouse in Brazil

Diluted EPS and Adjusted Diluted EPS

Our Q2 2019 results include the impact of the new lease accounting standard adopted in Q1 2019. Among its impacts, we no longer recognize the benefit of deferred gains on sale-leaseback transactions, resulting in an increase to Other restaurant operating expense which represents a two cent reduction in earnings per share. The following table includes both a reported and a comparable basis that adjusts for this lease accounting change.

The following table reconciles Diluted earnings per share to Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the periods as indicated below.

______________
See Non-GAAP Measures later in this release.

(1)

In Q2 2018 both GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share include the benefit of deferred gains on sale-leaseback transactions of approximately $0.02. For comparability, we have presented adjusted diluted earnings per share excluding this benefit that we no longer recognize in 2019 as a result of the adoption of the new lease accounting standard.

(2)

The effective income tax rate in Q2 2019 and Q2 2018 includes $1.0 million and $6.2 million, respectively, of tax benefit driven primarily by exercises of certain legacy stock options. These exercises benefited Q2 2019 and Q2 2018 diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.01 and $0.07, respectively.

CEO Comments

“Q2 was a good quarter for Bloomin’ Brands,” said David Deno, CEO. “We were particularly pleased with the healthy sales growth, reduction in discounting, and corresponding strong operating profit and margin expansion. Our positive momentum continued as we took additional market share and at Outback, sales exceeded the industry for the 10th consecutive quarter. In addition, we continue to capitalize on our growth opportunities and expect to achieve our comparable adjusted EPS growth range of 10% to 15% for the year.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

As described above, our Q2 2019 results include the impact from adopting the new lease accounting standard which reduces operating margins by 30 basis points. The following table includes both a reported and a comparable basis that adjusts for the lease accounting change:

  • The decrease in total revenues was primarily due to foreign currency translation and domestic refranchising, partially offset by higher comparable restaurant sales and the net impact of restaurant openings and closures.
  • The increase in reported GAAP and Adjusted operating income margin was primarily due to higher comparable restaurant sales and the impact of certain cost savings initiatives. These increases were partially offset by labor and commodity inflation, and the impact from adopting the new lease accounting standard as described above.

_________________

(1)

During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2019 net working capital (deficit) was negatively impacted by the recognition of approximately $170 million of current lease liabilities as a result of the adoption of the new lease accounting standard. We have, and in the future may continue to have, negative working capital balances (as is common for many restaurant companies). We operate successfully with negative working capital because cash collected on Restaurant sales is typically received before payment is due on our current liabilities, and our inventory turnover rates require relatively low investment in inventories. Additionally, ongoing cash flows from restaurant operations and gift card sales are used to service debt obligations and to make capital expenditures.

(2)

The change in total assets during the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2019 includes the addition of $1.3 billion of lease right-of-use assets as a result of the adoption of the new lease accounting standard.

(3)

During the twenty-six weeks ended June 30, 2019, we repurchased 5.5 million shares of our outstanding common stock and issued 0.6 million shares of our common stock through the exercise of stock options.

_________________

(1)

The table set forth below titled “Restaurant-level Operating Margin Adjustments” provides additional information regarding the adjustments for each period presented.

(2)

During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2018 both GAAP and adjusted restaurant-level operating margin included the benefit of deferred gains on sale-leaseback transactions of $3.0 million and $6.1 million, respectively. For comparability, we presented adjusted restaurant-level operating margin excluding this benefit that we no longer recognize in 2019 as a result of the adoption of the new lease accounting standard.

(3)

The following categories of our revenue and operating expenses are not included in restaurant-level operating margin because we do not consider them reflective of operating performance at the restaurant-level within a period:

 

(i)

Franchise and other revenues, which are earned primarily from franchise royalties and other non-food and beverage revenue streams, such as rental and sublease income.

 

(ii)

Depreciation and amortization which, although substantially all of which is related to restaurant-level assets, represent historical sunk costs rather than cash outlays for the restaurants.

 

(iii)

General and administrative expense which includes primarily non-restaurant-level costs associated with support of the restaurants and other activities at our corporate offices.

 

(iv)

Asset impairment charges and restaurant closing costs which are not reflective of ongoing restaurant performance in a period.

Restaurant-level Operating Margin Adjustments - Following is a summary of unfavorable restaurant-level operating margin adjustments recorded in Other restaurant operating for the following activities, as described in table five of this release:

During the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended July 1, 2018 both GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share were positively impacted by the benefit of deferred gains on sale-leaseback transactions by approximately $0.02 and $0.05, respectively. For comparability, we have presented adjusted diluted earnings per share excluding this benefit that we no longer recognize in 2019 as a result of the adoption of the new lease accounting standard.
