GOOD TIMES RESTAURANTS REPORTS RESULTS FOR
THE FIRST QUARTER ENDING DECEMBER 31, 2019

 

 

(DENVER, CO) Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM), operator of Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a full-service premium burger bar concept, and Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard, a regional quick-service restaurant chain today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended December 31, 2019.

 

Key highlights of the Company’s financial results include:

 

·Total Revenues increased 21.5% to $30.8 million for the quarter

 

·Total Restaurant Sales for Bad Daddy’s restaurants increased 25.0% to $22.8 million for the quarter

 

·The Company opened two Bad Daddy’s restaurants during the first quarter, in Charleston and Columbia, South Carolina

 

·Same Store Sales for company-owned Bad Daddy’s restaurants decreased 3.4% for the quarter

 

·Total Restaurant Sales for Good Times restaurants increased $0.9 million for the quarter to $7.8 million

 

·Same Store Sales for company-owned Good Times restaurants increased 5.8% for the quarter

 

·Net Loss Attributable to Common Shareholders was $0.8 million for the quarter

 

·Adjusted EBITDA* (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $1.5 million

 

·The Company ended the quarter with $3.3 million in cash and $14.4 million drawn against its senior credit facility

 

Ryan M. Zink, the Company’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, said “I am pleased with the progress our team is making in turning our near-term primary focus towards service, hospitality, and operational excellence within our existing restaurants. Our first quarter of fiscal 2020 saw the addition of two new Bad Daddy’s restaurants, which continue to perform well as our operators embrace the objective to serve our guests with unmatched hospitality from day one. Additionally, we continue to experience same-store sales strength at our Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard concept as we improve our service speed and order accuracy, while still providing the same high-quality, all-natural burgers our customers have come to expect.”

 

Mr. Zink continued, “Although we still experienced year-over-year margin erosion in our quarterly results, we made improvements sequentially throughout the quarter and significantly narrowed the year-over-year margin gap from where we ended fiscal 2019. We expect to make additional progress throughout the rest of this year. As a result of our fiscal calendar, we had an extra operating week during the first quarter, which in the current year consisted of fourteen weeks. This extra week contributed approximately $2.5 million of incremental revenues, contributed $0.3 million of incremental adjusted EBITDA, and reduced net loss by $0.2 million for the quarter. Same store sales at Bad Daddy’s continues to be an opportunity that we are keenly focused on, and to support this, beyond our operations initiatives we expect to moderately increase our advertising spending during the second and third fiscal quarters.”

 

Fiscal 2020 Outlook:

 

Additionally, the Company updated its guidance for fiscal 2020:

 

·Total revenues of approximately $120 to $123 million

 

·Total revenue estimates assume generally flat same store sales at Bad Daddy’s initially decreasing by approximately 3% but trending flat by the end of the fiscal year, and at Good Times increasing by an average of approximately 3.5% during the remainder of the fiscal year

 

·General and administrative expenses of approximately $8.5 to $8.7 million including approximately $400,000 to $450,000 of non-cash equity compensation expense

 

  1 
 

 

·The opening of up to one additional Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar during the fourth quarter

 

·Net loss of approximately $0.3 to $0.5 million, including approximately $1.2 million of pre-opening costs

 

·Total adjusted EBITDA* between $6.3 and $6.5 million

 

·Capital expenditures (net of tenant improvement allowances) of approximately $2.8 million including approximately $0.7 million related to the two restaurants opened in October and December 2019.

 

·Fiscal year-end long-term debt of approximately $12.2 to $12.7 million

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes restaurant-level occupancy costs, which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but excludes depreciation. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant level assets, because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling, general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because like depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance. Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The tables above set forth certain unaudited information for the current and prior year fiscal quarters and year-to-date periods for fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the components of restaurant operating costs, which are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues.

 

Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA (Thousands of US Dollars)

 

   Fiscal Quarter Ended 
   December 31, 2019   December 25, 2018 
Adjusted EBITDA:          
Net loss, as reported  $(811)  $(1,051)
Depreciation and amortization 1   1,069    993 
Interest expense, net   227    160 
EBITDA   485   102 
Pre-opening expense 1   801    605 
Non-cash stock-based compensation   75    112 
Non-recurring severance costs   41    - 
GAAP rent-cash rent difference   121    (43)
Gain on disposal of assets   (9)   (9)
Adjusted EBITDA  $1,514   $767 

 

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by GAAP, and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. This measure is presented because we believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for evaluating our ongoing results of operations.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization and further adjustments to reflect the additions and eliminations presented in the table above. 

 

_______________________

 

1 Depreciation and amortization, and preopening expense have been reduced by any amounts attributable to non-controlling interests.

 

 6 
 

 

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because: (i) we believe it is a useful measure for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization expenses and asset disposals, closure costs and restaurant impairments, and (ii) we use adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark for certain of our cash incentive plans and to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure permits a comparative assessment of our operating performance relative to our performance based on our GAAP results, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. Companies within our industry exhibit significant variations with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense and income tax rates) and differences in book depreciation of property, plant and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. Our management believes that adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company comparisons within our industry by eliminating some of these foregoing variations. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies, and our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by excluded or unusual items.
