1

Comparable restaurant sales includes all restaurants that have been in operation for more than 18 months. Amounts are calculated based on comparable 13 weeks in each fiscal quarter and 52 weeks in each fiscal year.

2

Mix shift is calculated as the year-over-year percentage change in company sales resulting from the change in menu items ordered by guests.

3

Revenues generated by franchisees are not included in revenues on the consolidated statements of comprehensive income; however, we generate royalty revenue and advertising fees based on franchisee revenues, where applicable. We believe including franchise comparable restaurant sales provides investors information regarding brand performance that is relevant to current operations and may impact future restaurant development.

4

Chili's Domestic comparable restaurant sales percentages are derived from sales generated by company-owned and franchise operated Chili's restaurants in the United States.

5

System-wide comparable restaurant sales are derived from sales generated by company-owned Chili's and Maggiano's restaurants in addition to the sales generated at franchise-operated Chili's restaurants.

Quarterly Operating Performance

CHILI'S fourth quarter company sales decreased 8.6 percent to $682.9 million from $747.3 million in the prior year primarily due to one less operating week in fiscal 2017 and a decline in comparable restaurant sales. As compared to the prior year, Chili's restaurant operating margin1 declined. Restaurant expenses, as a percent of company sales, increased due to sales deleverage, higher advertising and marketing related expenses and increased workers' compensation insurance expenses. Restaurant labor, as a percent of company sales, increased slightly compared to the prior year due to sales deleverage and higher wage rates, partially offset by lower manager bonuses. Cost of sales, as a percent of company sales, decreased due to increased menu pricing and favorable commodity pricing primarily related to beef and poultry, partially offset by unfavorable commodity pricing primarily related to avocados.  

MAGGIANO'S fourth quarter company sales decreased 4.8 percent to $102.9 million from $108.1 million in the prior year primarily due to one less operating week in fiscal 2017, partially offset by an increase in comparable restaurant sales and restaurant capacity. As compared to the prior year, Maggiano's restaurant operating margin1 declined. Restaurant expenses, as a percent of company sales, increased primarily due to sales deleverage and higher advertising and workers' compensation insurance expenses. Restaurant labor, as a percent of company sales, was flat compared to the prior year. Cost of sales, as a percent of company sales, was negatively impacted by unfavorable menu item mix, partially offset by increased menu pricing. 

1Restaurant operating margin is defined as Company sales less Cost of sales, Restaurant labor and Restaurant expenses and excludes Depreciation and amortization expenses. (See non-GAAP reconciliation below) 

FRANCHISE AND OTHER revenues decreased 5.7 percent to $24.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $26.3 million in the prior year fourth quarter primarily due to lower digital entertainment revenue from one less operating week and a slight decrease in royalty income from franchisees. 

Other

Depreciation and amortization expense decreased $0.2 million for the quarter compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 primarily due to an increase in fully-depreciated assets and restaurant closures, partially offset by depreciation on asset replacements and new restaurant openings. 

General and administrative expense decreased $1.6 million for the quarter compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 primarily due to one less operating week and lower payroll and stock-based compensation expenses.

On a GAAP basis, the effective income tax rate decreased to 25.2 percent in the current quarter from 31.8 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.  Excluding the impact of special items, the effective income tax rate decreased to 27.8 percent in the current quarter compared to 32.3 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.   The decline in profit in the current quarter compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 coupled with no significant change in realized tax credits resulted in a decrease in both the GAAP basis effective tax rate and the effective tax rate excluding special items.  The decline in the GAAP basis effective tax rate in the current quarter was partially offset by the impact of lower restaurant impairment and closure charges compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Immaterial Correction of Prior Period Financial Statements

In connection with the preparation of the consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 28, 2017, the Company discovered immaterial errors in prior years relating to the accuracy of the deferred income tax liability, primarily related to property and equipment. While the Company has concluded that the impact of these errors on the Company's previously-issued consolidated financial statements was not material, the Company is revising its previously-reported consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended June 29, 2016 and June 24, 2015. The revisions include a net increase in the provision for income taxes of $0.1 million and $2.0 million for fiscal 2016 and 2015, respectively. These revisions resulted in no change to earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2016 and a $0.03 decrease for fiscal 2015. Please refer to tables 6 and 7 in this press release for further information relating to these revisions to prior periods. The cumulative effect of the changes to retained earnings at the beginning of fiscal 2016, the earliest date presented in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 28, 2017, was a reduction of $12.4 million.

Fiscal 2018 Outlook

The company estimates earnings per diluted share, excluding special items, in the range of $3.25 to $3.35.  We are unable to reliably forecast special items such as restaurant impairments, restaurant closures, reorganization charges and legal settlements without unreasonable effort.  As such, we do not present a reconciliation of forecasted non-GAAP measures to the corresponding US GAAP measures.  When these items are reported in fiscal 2018, reconciliations to the appropriate US GAAP measures will be provided.  The non-GAAP measures included as a supplement to our estimated earnings per diluted share range are adjusted earnings per diluted share, restaurant operating margin, effective income tax rate excluding special items, free cash flow, and EBITDA.

Estimated earnings per diluted share are based on the following expectations:

  • Revenues are expected to be up approximately one half percent to 1.5 percent 
  • Comparable restaurant sales are expected to be flat to up 1.0 percent 
  • Restaurant operating margin is expected to be down approximately 25 to 40 basis points year-over-year 
  • Depreciation expense is expected to be $2 to $3 million lower reflecting the impact of fully-depreciated assets coupled with lower capital expenditures. Capital expenditures are expected to be $105 to $115 million
  • General and administrative expense is expected to be $5 to $6 million higher on a dollar basis due to planning incentive compensation at target 
  • Interest expense is expected to increase $8 to $9 million due to a higher debt balance and a higher anticipated average interest rate in fiscal 2018 
  • Excluding the impact of special items, the effective income tax rate is projected to be approximately 27 to 29 percent 
  • EBITDA is expected to be $420 to $430 million
  • Free cash flow is expected to be $205 to $215 million
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding is expected to be 47 to 49 million

The company believes providing estimated fiscal 2018 earnings per diluted share guidance provides investors the appropriate insight into the company's ongoing operating performance.

Guidance Policy

Brinker provides annual guidance as it relates to comparable restaurant sales, earnings per diluted share, excluding special items, and other key line items in the statements of comprehensive income and will only provide updates if there is a material change versus the original guidance. We do not provide annual guidance as it relates to US GAAP earnings per diluted share as we are unable to reliably forecast special items such as restaurant impairments, restaurant closures, reorganization charges and legal settlements without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Measures

Brinker management uses certain non-GAAP measures in analyzing operating performance and believes that the presentation of these measures in this release provides investors with information that is beneficial to gaining an understanding of the company's operating results. Non-GAAP disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures are included in the tables below.

Table 4: Reconciliation of restaurant operating margin 

Q4 17 and Q4 16; $ millions 

Restaurant operating margin is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to operating income as an indicator of financial performance.  Restaurant operating margin is widely regarded in the industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate  restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance of ongoing restaurant-level operations.  We define restaurant operating margin as Company sales less Company restaurant expenses, including Cost of sales, Restaurant labor and Restaurant expenses.  Restaurant expenses includes advertising expense. We believe this metric provides a more useful comparison between periods and enables investors to focus on the performance of restaurant-level operations by excluding revenues not related to food and beverage sales at company-owned restaurants, corporate general and administrative expense, depreciation and amortization, and other gains and charges. 

Restaurant operating margin excludes Franchise and other revenues which are earned primarily from franchise royalties and other non-food and beverage revenue streams such as banquet service charges, digital entertainment revenues and gift card breakage.   Depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant-level assets, is excluded because such expenses represent historical costs which do not reflect current cash outlays for the restaurants.  General and administrative expense includes primarily non-restaurant-level costs associated with support of the restaurants and other activities at our corporate offices and is therefore excluded.  We believe that excluding special items, included within Other gains and charges, from restaurant operating margin provides investors with a clearer perspective of the Company's ongoing operating performance and a more useful comparison to prior period results.  Restaurant operating margin as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies in our industry.
