Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

November 12, 2018

Updates Fiscal Year 2018 Guidance

IRVING, Texas, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (“Del Frisco’s”) (NASDAQ: DFRG) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 25, 2018 and updated its guidance for fiscal year 2018 to reflect in part the sale of Sullivan’s Steakhouse.

On August 6, 2018 we closed on an underwritten public offering of 12,937,500 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $8.00 per share for total net proceeds of $97.8 million. On September 21, 2018, we completed the sale of Sullivan’s Steakhouse for total proceeds of $32 million. The proceeds from both the public offering and divestiture were used to repay a portion of our outstanding borrowings. As of the third quarter ended September 25, 2018, we had an outstanding balance on our senior secured term loan of $310 million and no outstanding borrowings on our revolving credit agreement.

Given the sale of Sullivan’s Steakhouse, and a related impairment and loss on sale, operating results for Sullivan’s Steakhouse are included in discontinued operations for all periods presented. All numbers below are therefore for continuing operations unless otherwise stated.

Key Highlights from the 13-Week Third Quarter 2018 Compared to the 12-Week Third Quarter 2017 Include:

  • Consolidated revenues increased 73.7% to $105.3 million from $60.6 million due primarily to $39.9 million in contributions from Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco (together, “Emerging Brands”), which were acquired on June 27, 2018 and the additional calendar week in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the third quarter of 2017.
  • Total comparable restaurant sales decreased 1.9%.
  • GAAP net loss of $41.2 million, or $1.49 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted net loss* of $1.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss* of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 113.8% to $6.8 million from $3.2 million. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, adjusted EBITDA margin increased 120 basis points to 6.4% from 5.2%.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA* increased 96.5% to $18.6 million from $9.5 million due primarily to $10.2 million in contributions from Emerging Brands. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA margin increased 210 basis points to 17.7% from 15.6%.

* Adjusted net loss, adjusted EBITDA, and restaurant-level EBITDA are non-GAAP measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP net income and operating (loss)/income, respectively, and a discussion of why we consider them useful, see the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures accompanying this release.

Norman Abdallah, Chief Executive Officer of Del Frisco's, said, "We are positioning ourselves for long-term success by executing our brand strategies, ensuring liquidity and investment behind our three major growth brands -- Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco -- through capital restructuring, shedding underperforming assets, and divesting of Sullivan’s Steakhouse. ‘Front-end’ operations for Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco have now been substantially integrated into the Del Frisco’s eco-system with their respective management teams working from our Irving, TX support center while ‘back-end’ support systems are on track to be fully integrated ahead of schedule by mid-year 2019. Encouragingly, G&A and purchasing synergies are now anticipated at the high end of our previous $3 million to $5 million range with significant savings run-rate beginning in the second half of 2019.”

Abdallah continued, “Our restaurant portfolio is benefitting from greater diversification and balance than ever before with contributions from our Emerging Brands strengthening our top-line, enhancing restaurant-level EBITDA and margins and providing new restaurant opportunities to support Del Frisco’s growth targets. Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco both experienced strong third quarter restaurant-level EBITDA growth with a smooth transition under Del Frisco’s first quarter of ownership. Barcelona and Vinoteca’s comparable restaurant sales rose 2.5%, revenues increased 10.7%, restaurant-level EBITDA rose 15.8%, and restaurant-level EBITDA margins improved by 100 basis points compared to the same thirteen week quarter in 2017. While bartaco’s comparable restaurant sales were affected by rains in the Northeast, a formidable 11.1% comparison from the prior-year period, and one underperforming location, encouragingly revenues still increased 11.8%. Restaurant-level EBITDA also rose 23.4%, and restaurant-level EBITDA margins improved by 260 basis points compared to the same thirteen week quarter last year.”

Abdallah concluded, “Del Frisco’s Grille’s revenues and comparable restaurant sales held steady while restaurant-level EBITDA margins improved 70 bps on a thirteen week to thirteen week basis, while the Double Eagle’s restaurant-level margins were negatively impacted by 430 basis points from new store inefficiencies and 42 days of restaurant closure for two remodeling projects. These factors, along with the timing of marketing expenses, more than offset lower cost of sales benefits from a favorable commodity environment. The Double Eagle’s comparable restaurant sales decline primarily reflected anticipated sales transfer in Boston from our new Back Bay opening, a decline in patio sales and continued underperformance in Chicago, a market we now expect to exit early next year. Under new brand leadership, and despite these headwinds, comparable restaurant sales at the Double Eagle turned positive towards the end of the third quarter and this trend has continued though the first five weeks of the fourth quarter with comparable restaurant sales rising in the low single digits. We are particularly encouraged by our private dining sales momentum in our highest seasonality quarter of the year with comparable private dining restaurant sales up close to 20% through the first five weeks and bookings for the remaining weeks of the quarter more than 20% above where they were at the same time in 2017. Finally, bartaco’s comparable restaurant sales have turned strongly positive at the end of October, increasing 9.9% in the first 12 days since we lapped the incident in one underperforming bartaco location last year.”

Review of Third Quarter 2018 Operating Results

Consolidated revenues increased $44.7 million, or 73.7%, to $105.3 million in the third quarter of 2018 from $60.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. The increase in revenues reflects $39.9 million in contributions from the Emerging Brands, which were acquired on June 27, 2018, representing 441 additional operating weeks, coupled with 36 additional operating weeks from our Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse and Del Frisco’s Grille brands. The incremental operating weeks from our Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse and Del Frisco’s Grille brands were primarily due to the additional calendar week in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the third quarter of 2017 as a result of our change in the fiscal quarter calendar.

Comparable Restaurant Sales

  Total   Double Eagle   Barcelona   bartaco   Del Frisco’s Grille
Comparable Restaurant Sales (1.9 %)   (2.4 %)   2.5 %   (7.0 %)   (0.4  %)
Customer Counts (5.5 %)   (4.7 %)   1.0 %   (5.9 %)   (9.0 %)
Average Check 3.6 %   2.3 %   1.5 %   (1.1 %)   8.6 %

General and administrative costs increased to $11.8 million in the third quarter of 2018 from $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2017. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, general and administrative costs increased to 11.2% from 10.4%. This increase was primarily related to the Emerging Brands, the additional calendar week in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the third quarter of 2017 as a result of our change in fiscal quarter calendar, and investments in the restaurant support center and regional management to support future growth, partially offset by the sale of Sullivan’s Steakhouse.

In the third quarter of 2018, we had acquisition costs of $6.0 million, impairment costs of $2.1 million which were almost entirely related to our Chicago Double Eagle, consulting project costs of $1.0 million, lease termination costs of $0.9 million and reorganization severance costs of $0.7 million. In the third quarter of 2017, we had donations of $0.8 million, consulting project costs of $0.2 million and reorganization severance costs were $0.4 million.

GAAP net loss was $41.2 million, or $1.49 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to GAAP net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2017.

Adjusted net loss* was $1.9 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to adjusted net loss* of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA* from continuing operations increased 113.8% to $6.8 million from $3.2 million. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 120 basis points to 6.4% from 5.2%.

Restaurant-level EBITDA* increased $9.1 million, or 96.5%, to $18.6 million in the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to $10.2 million in contributions from Emerging Brands. As a percentage of consolidated revenues, restaurant-level EBITDA* increased to 17.7% from 15.6%.

Fiscal Year 2018 Guidance & Long-Term Growth Outlook

The following statements are not guarantees of future performance, and therefore, undue reliance should not be placed upon them. We refer you to the statement below regarding Forward-Looking Statements and our recent filings with the SEC for a more detailed discussion of the risks that could impact our future operating results and financial condition.

Based upon current information, we are updating our guidance for the 52-week fiscal year 2018, which ends on December 25, 2018, to reflect our year-to-date performance, the sale of Sullivan’s Steakhouse ahead of schedule, some delays to our new restaurant opening plans and expectations for the fourth quarter of 2018.  Note this guidance represents continuing operations so excludes discontinued operations at Sullivan’s Steakhouse and also excludes results for our Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco brands prior to Del Frisco’s ownership.

  • Total comparable restaurant sales of (1.5)% to 0.5%.
  • Ten restaurant openings consisting of three Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouses, three Del Frisco’s Grilles, and post-acquisition one Barcelona Wine Bar and three bartacos.
  • Five to six restaurant closures consisting of three to four Del Frisco’s Grilles and two legacy bartacos.  Three Grilles and both bartacos are already closed.
  • Restaurant-level EBITDA** of 19.5% to 20.5% of consolidated revenues.
  • General and administrative costs of approximately $39 million to $42 million, which excludes items we consider non-recurring in nature.
  • Pre-opening expenses of $10 million to $11 million.
  • Net capital expenditures, after tenant allowances, of $75 million to $80 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA** of $34 million to $38 million

By the end of fiscal year 2021, we are targeting generation on an annual basis of at least $700 million in consolidated revenues and at least $100 million in adjusted EBITDA**. To achieve these long term targets, we would need to satisfy the following key annual goals over the next three years:

  • Consolidated revenue growth of at least 10%.
  • Total comparable restaurant sales growth of 0% to 2%.
  • Total net restaurant growth of 10% to 12% annually.
  • Maintaining strong restaurant-level EBITDA** margins.
  • General and administrative cost leverage.
  • Adjusted EBITDA** growth of at least 15%.

We are also targeting net debt to adjusted EBITDA** of 2.5x to 3.0x by the end of fiscal year 2021.

**A reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and GAAP measures for adjusted EBITDA and restaurant-level EBITDA generally is not available without unreasonable effort due to the potentially high variability, complexity and low visibility as to the items that would be excluded from the GAAP measure in the relevant future period, such as unusual gains and losses, the ultimate outcome of pending litigation,  the impact and timing of potential acquisitions and divestitures and other structural changes or their probable significance. The variability of the excluded items may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP results.

Development

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House

We opened restaurants in Boston, MA early during the third quarter, which is performing in line with expectations, and Atlanta, GA late during the third quarter, our first “smaller prototype” test location.

We also opened a restaurant in San Diego, CA during the fourth quarter of 2018, while the restaurant in Century City, CA is now expected to open in the first quarter of 2019. In addition, we have signed leases for restaurants in each of Santa Clara, CA and Pittsburgh, PA.

Barcelona Wine Bar

We expect to open a restaurant in Charlotte, NC during the fourth quarter.  A restaurant in Raleigh, NC is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019.

bartaco

We opened a restaurant in North Hills, NC during the third quarter of 2018 and expect to open restaurants in each of Fort Point, MA, and Dallas, TX during the fourth quarter of 2018. A restaurant in Madison, WI is also scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019.

Del Frisco’s Grille

We expect to open a restaurant in each of Philadelphia, PA and Fort Lauderdale, FL during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Barteca Selected Financial Information

Non-GAAP Measures

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Within our press release, we make reference to non-GAAP adjusted net income, adjusted EPS net (loss) income per share, adjusted EBIDTA and restaurant-level EBITDA. Adjusted net income represents GAAP net income (loss) plus the sum of GAAP income tax expense (benefit), lease termination and closing costs, consulting project costs, acquisition and disposition costs, reorganization severance, non-recurring legal expenses, donations, non-recurring corporate expenses, and impairment charges minus income tax expense at an effective tax rate of 80% during 2018, and 29% during 2017. We believe that this non-GAAP operating measure represents a useful measure of performance internally and for investors as it excludes certain non-operating related expenditures. Adjusted EBIDTA is calculated by adding back to operating income, pre-opening costs, donations, consulting project costs, acquisition costs, reorganization severance, lease termination and closing costs, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges and insurance settlements. Restaurant-level EBITDA is calculated by adding back to adjusted EBIDTA general and administrative expenses. We believe that these operating measures also represent useful internal measures of performance. Restaurant-level EBITDA margin represents restaurant-level EBITDA as a percentage of our revenues. Adjusted EPS net (loss) income per share represents income from continuing operations excluding the impact of certain adjustments such as the amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related transaction and integration costs, goodwill impairments, gains and losses on divestitures and any other items specifically identified herein, divided by the Company’s weighted average diluted shares outstanding. We believe that this measure represents a useful measure of performance internally and for investors.

Accordingly, we include these non-GAAP measures so that investors have the same financial data that management uses in evaluating performance, and we believe that it will assist the investment community in assessing our underlying performance on a quarter-over-quarter basis. However, because these measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP, such measures are susceptible to varying calculations and not all companies calculate these measures in the same manner. As a result, these measures as presented may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are presented as supplemental information and not as alternatives to any GAAP measurements. The following tables include a reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income and operating income to restaurant-level EBITDA.

Recast 2017 Financial Information

Beginning in fiscal 2018, we changed to a fiscal quarter calendar where each quarter contains 13 weeks, other than in a 53-week year where the last quarter of the year will contain 14 weeks. Previously, the first three quarters of our fiscal year consisted of 12 weeks each and the fourth quarter consisted of 16 weeks or 17 weeks in a 53-week year.  The overall fiscal year remains the same with a 52- or 53-week year ending on the last Tuesday in December.  We have not restated and do not plan to restate historical quarterly financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. See Note 1, Business and Basis of Presentation, in our condensed consolidated financial statements included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 25, 2018 (“Third Quarter 10-Q”) for additional information regarding the change in our fiscal quarters.

Due to the difference in the reporting period between the third quarter of 2018, which contained 13 weeks, and the third quarter of 2017, which contained 12 weeks, and in the reporting period between the first three quarters of 2018, which contained 39 weeks, and the first three quarters of 2017, which contained 36 weeks, our 2018 results of operations as presented in accordance with GAAP are not comparable to the prior year.  Therefore, we are presenting recast quarterly financial results for the fiscal 2017 period because management uses this information in evaluating performance and believes it provides investors with additional information to consider along with our results prepared in accordance with GAAP and the discussion thereof included in the Third Quarter 10-Q.  However, the presentation of this recast financial information does not comply with GAAP and should not be considered independent of our unaudited combined financial statements and the related notes included in the Third Quarter 10-Q.

The consolidated and segment revenues reflected in the recast 2017 financial information are derived from our historical books and records and no adjustments were made thereto other than to account for the additional operating week. The amount of certain recurring expense items on a consolidated basis and at the segment level, including costs of sales, restaurant operating expenses and the other items identified as such below, were calculated based on a presumed proportionate increase over the reported 2017 amount reflecting the additional week in recast 2017 consolidated or segment revenues, as applicable, over reported 2017 consolidated or segment revenues, as applicable, because such items are typically a function of and move in correlation to revenues during a given period.  No changes were made to the reported 2017 results for certain other expense items such as consulting project costs and the other items identified as such below because they are generally not recurring, but incurred at distinct moments within a period as a result of their more unique nature.

Adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted pre-tax income and restaurant-level EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.  See the discussion above under Non-GAAP Information regarding how we define these measures and why we believe they are useful for investors.

The unaudited combined adjusted financial information for the 39 weeks ended September 25, and for the 13 weeks and 39 weeks ended September 26, 2017 in the following tables represent information derived from financial statements prepared by the former management of Barteca ("Emerging Brands"), recast to align with our fiscal calendar, and historical recast financial information of Del Frisco's Heritage Brands, which represent Double Eagle and Grille, prior to the Barteca Acquisition. This unaudited combined adjusted financial information has been presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of what the combined company’s results of operations actually would have been had the Barteca Acquisition been completed as of the dates indicated. In addition, the unaudited combined adjusted financial information does not purport to project the future financial position or results of operations of the combined company and do not reflect synergies that might be achieved from the combined operations.
