Bloomin’ Brands Reports Strengthening Sales Trends

Nachrichtenquelle: Business Wire (engl.)
23.10.2020, 13:00  |  141   |   |   

Bloomin’ Brands, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLMN) today reported results for the third quarter 2020 (“Q3 2020”) compared to the third quarter 2019 (“Q3 2019”).

Statement from David Deno, Chief Executive Officer

Our priorities remain unchanged as we are focused on taking care of our people and serving food in an environment that protects both team members and customers. Maintaining a motivated, well trained, and engaged employee base that is committed to providing a safe dining experience is critical to our long-term success. The decision not to furlough any employees during the pandemic reinforced this principle. This decision is paying off and has been a big part of our success in driving results throughout the pandemic.

It is clear that customers want to come back to restaurants and they are confident in our ability to provide a safe and welcoming dining experience. Our dining rooms across the country continue to maintain elevated safety measures, including additional sanitation and disinfecting practices, as well as contactless payment options for consumers. Across the U.S. portfolio, we experienced consistent weekly sales momentum throughout the third quarter as we adapted to this evolving environment. In-restaurant sales continue to improve and our off-premises business remains robust as we are retaining approximately 50% of the incremental volume achieved while our dining rooms were closed. Off-premises remains a priority and we will leverage our strong capabilities to capitalize on this important and growing channel.

We are dedicated to growing sales while improving value. In September, we launched a new menu at Outback Steakhouse designed to reinforce our steak leadership through more accessible premium cuts and larger portions while also lowering menu prices. This efficient menu design reduces complexity, which improves execution and consistency that results in an improved customer experience.

This past year we have learned even more about the business and rethought how we manage expenses. These learned efficiencies provide optimism about the ability to grow margins, once we exit the pandemic. Our third quarter sales and profits were above expectations with U.S. comp sales exceeding Knapp trends by over 850 basis points. In addition, our improved sales recovery, coupled with disciplined cost management, enabled us to generate positive cash flow in the quarter while paying down debt.

We are becoming a better, stronger, operations-focused company. Even though a challenging environment remains, I am more convinced than ever of the important role that full-service restaurants will continue to play in the lives of our customers and communities.

  • The decrease in total revenues was primarily due to: (i) significantly lower comparable restaurant sales and franchise revenues principally attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic, (ii) the net impact of restaurant closures and openings and (iii) the effect of foreign currency translation of the Brazil Real relative to the U.S. dollar.
  • GAAP and Adjusted restaurant-level operating margin decreased due to: (i) significantly lower comparable restaurant sales and costs incurred in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, including incremental delivery related costs, and (ii) higher labor costs. These decreases are partially offset by: (i) reduced advertising, utilities and operating expenses, (ii) a reduction in prep labor hours and (iii) cost savings from waste reduction initiatives.
  • GAAP operating income margin decreased due to: (i) a decline in restaurant-level operating margin discussed above, (ii) sales deleveraging in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic across depreciation and amortization and general and administrative expense and (iii) certain costs in connection with our transformation initiatives. These costs in connection with transformation initiatives were excluded from our adjusted operating income margin.

2020 Financial Outlook

As announced on March 20, 2020, the Company withdrew its 2020 financial guidance for the fiscal year ending December 27, 2020. Due to the current global market and economic conditions as a result of COVID-19, the Company will not provide guidance for the remainder of the year.

Conference Call

The Company will host a conference call today, October 23, 2020 at 8:30 AM EDT. The conference call will be webcast live from the Company’s website at http://www.bloominbrands.com under the Investors section. A replay of this webcast will be available on the Company’s website after the call.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP measures, which present operating results on an adjusted basis. These are supplemental measures of performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP and include the following: (i) Adjusted restaurant-level operating margin, (ii) Adjusted (loss) income from operations and the corresponding margin, (iii) Adjusted net (loss) income, (iv) Adjusted diluted (loss) earnings per share, (v) Adjusted segment restaurant-level operating margin and (vi) Adjusted segment income (loss) from operations and the corresponding margin.

We believe that our use of non-GAAP financial measures permits investors to assess the operating performance of our business relative to our performance based on GAAP results and relative to other companies within the restaurant industry by isolating the effects of certain items that may vary from period to period without correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. However, our inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which we have made adjustments are unusual or infrequent or will not recur. We believe that the disclosure of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors as they form part of the basis for how our management team and Board of Directors evaluate our operating performance, allocate resources and administer employee incentive plans.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace GAAP financial measures, and they are not necessarily standardized or comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. We maintain internal guidelines with respect to the types of adjustments we include in our non-GAAP measures. These guidelines endeavor to differentiate between types of gains and expenses that are reflective of our core operations in a period, and those that may vary from period to period without correlation to our core performance in that period. However, implementation of these guidelines necessarily involves the application of judgment, and the treatment of any items not directly addressed by, or changes to, our guidelines will be considered by our disclosure committee. You should refer to the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures in tables four, six and seven included later in this release for descriptions of the actual adjustments made in the current period and the corresponding prior period.

In May 2020, we issued $230 million of senior convertible notes which yielded net proceeds of approximately $202 million after issuance costs and related hedge and warrant transactions.

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 typically used to service debt obligations and to make capital expenditures.

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

(2)

 

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:

 

 

(a)

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.

 

 

(b)

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.

 

 

(c)

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

 

 

(d)

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 (favorable) adjusted restaurant-level operating margin adjustments recorded in Other restaurant operating expense (unless otherwise noted below) for the following activities, as described in table six of this release:
