Dine Brands Global, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2022 Results

November 2, 2022 at 7:00 AM EDT

Applebee’s and IHOP Post Seventh & Sixth Consecutive Positive Comparable Restaurants Sales Quarters, Respectively

GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 2, 2022-- Dine Brands Global, Inc. (NYSE: DIN), the parent company of Applebee's Neighborhood Grill + Bar® and IHOP® restaurants, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2022.

“The third quarter reflected Dine’s collective strength and resiliency. Despite persistent economic headwinds, our performance demonstrated outstanding execution of our plan and our deep commitment to deliver on our strategy and create shareholder value,” said John Peyton, chief executive officer of Dine Brands Global, Inc.

Vance Chang, chief financial officer, added, “Our results continued to display the strength of our asset-light business model. With less than one quarter remaining in 2022, we have narrowed our EBITDA and G&A guidance to better incorporate our year-to-date progress and our prospects for the remainder of the year.”

Domestic Restaurant Sales for the Third Quarter of 2022

  • Applebee’s year-over-year comparable same-restaurant sales increased 3.8% for the third quarter of 2022. Off-premise sales accounted for 24.2% of sales mix, representing per restaurant average weekly sales of approximately $12,800.
  • IHOP’s year-over-year comparable same-restaurant sales increased 1.9% for the third quarter of 2022. Off-premise sales accounted for 20.4% of sales mix, representing per restaurant average weekly sales of approximately $7,700.

Third Quarter of 2022 Summary

  • Total revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were $233.2 million compared to $228.7 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to positive comparable same restaurant sales growth at both brands.
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2022 was $63.6 million, slightly ahead of the $63.3 million for the third quarter of 2021. The increase in revenues was offset by ongoing inflation across our company restaurants and higher franchise-level expenses. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and reconciliation of GAAP net income to consolidated adjusted EBITDA.)
  • General and Administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $46.3 million compared to $43.7 million for the third quarter of 2021. The variance was primarily due to continued strategic growth investments and a return to normalized operations, including higher professional services expenses and travel-related costs to support franchisees.
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share of $1.32 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to earnings per diluted share of $1.33 for the third quarter of 2021. The variance was primarily due to higher franchise, company restaurant and G&A expenses, offset by increased revenues and lower share count.
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.66 for the third quarter of 2022 compared to adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.55 for the third quarter of 2021. The variance was primarily due to lower share count. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and reconciliation of GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share.)
  • Development activity by Applebee’s and IHOP franchisees for the third quarter of 2022 resulted in the opening of 10 new restaurants and the closure of 11 restaurants.

First Nine Months of 2022 Summary

  • Total revenues for the first nine months of 2022 were $701.4 million compared to $666.5 million for the first nine months of 2021. The increase was primarily due to strong comparable same restaurant sales growth at both brands.
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2022 was $194.9 million. This compares to $193.2 million for the first nine months of 2021. The increase was primarily due to strong comparable same restaurant sales growth at both brands offset by strategic growth investments as well as higher expenses associated with a return to normal operations. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and reconciliation of GAAP net income to consolidated adjusted EBITDA.)
  • G&A expenses for the first nine months of 2022 were $131.9 million compared to $122.9 million for the first nine months of 2021. The variance was primarily due to continued strategic growth investments and a return to normalized operations, including higher travel-related costs and professional services expenses to support franchisees.
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share of $4.22 for the first nine months of 2022 compared to earnings per diluted share of $4.52 for the first nine months of 2021. The variance was primarily due to higher income tax expense and an increase in G&A expenses, partially offset by an increase in gross profit and a decrease in closure and impairment charges.
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $4.85 for the first nine months of 2022 compared to adjusted earnings per diluted share of $5.22 for the first nine months of 2021. The variance was primarily due to higher income tax expense and an increase in G&A expenses, partially offset by an increase in gross profit and lower share count. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and reconciliation of GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share.)
  • Cash flows from operating activities for the first nine months of 2022 were $63.5 million. This compares to cash provided from operating activities of $145.6 million for the first nine months of 2021. The decline was primarily due to the change in working capital, resulting from payments related to higher incentive compensation earned in 2021 but paid in the first quarter of 2022, one-time collection of franchisee deferrals in the first nine months of 2021 (that did not recur in 2022) and the timing of marketing disbursements.
  • The Company had adjusted free cash flow of $52.4 million for the first nine months of 2022. This compares to adjusted free cash flow of $146.1 million for the first nine months of 2021. (See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and reconciliation of the Company’s cash provided by operating activities to adjusted free cash flow.)
  • Development activity by Applebee’s and IHOP franchisees for the first nine months of 2022 resulted in the opening of 35 new restaurants and the closure of 30 restaurants.

Key Balance Sheet Metrics (as of September 30, 2022)

  • Total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $424.2 million, of which $355.3 million was unrestricted cash.
  • Leverage ratio of 3.90x compared to 4.27x as of June 30, 2022.
  • Debt service coverage ratio was 4.15x compared to 4.31x as of June 30, 2022.
  • Capacity under the revolving credit facility of $221.6 million available, with a $100 million draw down in August 2022 and $3.4 million pledged.

GAAP Effective Tax Rate

The Company's effective tax rate was 26.9% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, as compared to 16.4% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was higher than the rate of the prior comparable period primarily due to the recognition of excess tax benefits on stock-based compensation related to the departure of the Company’s previous chief executive officer in the first quarter of 2021.

Capital Return to Shareholders

The Company repurchased 140,997 shares of its common stock in the third quarter of 2022 for a total of approximately $9.5 million, with $113.6 million repurchased through the first nine months of 2022.

On September 9, 2022, the Company announced that its Board of Directors declared and approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.51 per share of common stock. The dividend was paid on September 30, 2022, to the Company’s stockholders of record at the close of business on September 20, 2022.

Financial Performance Guidance for 2022

The Company adjusted a number of its fiscal 2022 guidance items:

  • Domestic development activity by Applebee’s franchisees of between 5 and 15 net fewer restaurants is reaffirmed.
  • Domestic development activity by IHOP franchisees and area licensees is now expected to be between 35 and 45 net new openings (compared with between 50 and 65 restaurants as was previously guided). The change is primarily due to new openings being moved to 2023 as a result of permitting delays and supply chain issues.
  • Consolidated adjusted EBITDA range is narrowed to between approximately $243 million and $248 million, versus the previous $235 million and $250 million range. This new guidance reflects our third quarter performance and our planned strategic investments in the fourth quarter, along with the impact from refranchising our company-owned restaurants.
  • G&A expenses are now expected to be reduced to a range of between approximately $185 million and $190 million versus the $188 million and $198 million range provided earlier in the year. This total includes non-cash stock-based compensation expense and depreciation of approximately $30 million. This range reflects incremental investments in technology and operational initiatives as well as unit development and is inclusive of G&A expenses related to the company restaurants segment.
  • Capital expenditures is left unchanged in a range between $33 million and $38 million, reflecting incremental investments in the business to support sustainable growth.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes references to the Company's non-GAAP financial measure “adjusted net income available to common stockholders”, “adjusted earnings per diluted share (Adjusted EPS)”, “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Adjusted free cash flow.” Adjusted EPS is computed for a given period by deducting from net income or loss available to common stockholders for such period the effect of any closure and impairment charges, any gain or loss related to debt extinguishment, any intangible asset amortization, any non-cash interest expense, any gain or loss related to the disposition of assets, and other items deemed not reflective of current operations. This is presented on an aggregate basis and a per share (diluted) basis. Adjusted EBITDA is computed for a given period by deducting from net income or loss for such period the effect of any closure and impairment charges, any interest charges, any income tax provision or benefit, any non-cash stock-based compensation, any depreciation and amortization, any gain or loss related to the disposition of assets and other items deemed not reflective of current operations. “Adjusted free cash flow” for a given period is defined as cash provided by operating activities, plus receipts from notes and equipment contracts receivable, less capital expenditures. Management may use certain of these non-GAAP financial measures along with the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of the business and to make certain business decisions. Management uses adjusted free cash flow in its periodic assessments of, among other things, the amount of cash dividends per share of common stock and repurchases of common stock and we believe it is important for investors to have the same measure used by management for that purpose. Adjusted free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes. Additionally, adjusted EPS is one of the metrics used in determining payouts under the Company’s annual cash incentive plan. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional meaningful information that should be considered when assessing the business and the Company’s performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace. Adjusted EPS and adjusted free cash flow are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

Reconciliation of the Company's cash flows provided by operating activities to “adjusted free cash flow” (cash flows provided by operating activities, plus receipts from notes and equipment contracts receivable, less additions to property and equipment). Management uses this liquidity measure in its periodic assessments of, among other things, the amount of cash dividends per share of common stock and repurchases of common stock. We believe it is important for investors to have the same measure used by management for that purpose. Adjusted free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes.

Reconciliation of the Company's net income to “adjusted EBITDA.” The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, adjusted for the effect of closure and impairment charges, interest charges, income tax provision or benefit, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, gain or loss on disposition of assets, other non-income based taxes and other items deemed not reflective of current operations. Management may use certain non-GAAP measures along with the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of the Company and to make certain business decisions.

Restaurant Data
(Unaudited)

The following table sets forth, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the number of “Effective Restaurants” in the Applebee’s and IHOP systems and information regarding the percentage change in sales at those restaurants compared to the same periods in the prior year and, as such, the percentage change in sales at Effective Restaurants is based on non-GAAP sales data. Sales at restaurants that are owned by franchisees and area licensees are not attributable to the Company. However, we believe that presentation of this information is useful in analyzing our revenues because franchisees and area licensees pay us royalties and advertising fees that are generally based on a percentage of their sales, and, where applicable, rental payments under leases that partially may be based on a percentage of their sales. Management also uses this information to make decisions about future plans for the development of additional restaurants as well as evaluation of current operations.

Restaurant Data

(Unaudited)

(a)

“Global Effective Restaurants” are the weighted average number of restaurants open in a given fiscal period, adjusted to account for restaurants open for only a portion of the period. Information is presented for all Effective Restaurants in the Applebee’s and IHOP systems, which includes restaurants owned by franchisees and area licensees as well as those owned by the Company. Effective Restaurants do not include units operated as ghost kitchens (small kitchens with no store-front presence, used to fill off-premise orders).

 

 

(b)

“System-wide” sales are retail sales at domestic Applebee’s restaurants operated by franchisees and IHOP restaurants operated by franchisees and area licensees, as reported to the Company, in addition to retail sales at company-operated restaurants. System-wide sales do not include retail sales of ghost kitchens. Sales at restaurants that are owned by franchisees and area licensees are not attributable to the Company. An increase or decrease in franchisees' reported sales will result in a corresponding increase or decrease in our royalty revenue. Unaudited reported sales for Applebee's domestic franchise restaurants, Applebee's company-operated restaurants, IHOP franchise restaurants and IHOP area license restaurants for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 were as follows:

“Sales percentage change” reflects, for each category of restaurants, the percentage change in sales in any given fiscal period compared to the prior fiscal period for all restaurants in that category.

 

 

(d)

“Domestic same-restaurant sales percentage change” reflects the percentage change in sales, in any given fiscal period, compared to the same weeks in the prior year for domestic restaurants that have been operated during both fiscal periods that are being compared and have been open for at least 18 months. Because of new unit openings and restaurant closures, the domestic restaurants open during both fiscal periods being compared may be different from period to period.
