Ruby Tuesday Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results

10/08/2015
  • Same-Restaurant Sales increased 0.6%
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $15.0 million
  • Fiscal 2016 Guidance reaffirmed

MARYVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 2015-- Ruby Tuesday, Inc. (NYSE: RT) today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended September 1, 2015.

First Quarter Financial Performance Highlights

  • Total revenue was $279.5 million, a decrease from last year of $1.7 million, or 0.6%, primarily due to a net reduction of 11 Company-owned restaurants compared to the first quarter last year, partially offset by a same-restaurant sales increase of 0.6% at Company-owned Ruby Tuesday restaurants.
  • First quarter same-restaurant sales of 0.6% were negatively impacted by approximately 30 basis points due to the Labor Day holiday being reported in our first quarter last year versus being reported in our second quarter this year. Year-over-year guest counts were down 2.9% for the quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $15.0 million compared to $20.1 million in the same quarter last year.
  • Net Loss was $4.2 million or ($0.07) per share. Adjusted Net Loss* was $1.6 million or ($0.03) per share.
  • During the quarter, the Company prepaid and retired ten mortgage loan obligations with a June 2, 2015 outstanding balance of $8.3 million using cash on hand.
  • As of September 1, 2015, the Company had cash on hand of $56.9 million.

*A reconciliation of non-GAAP information is included in the schedules accompanying the financial statements in this release.

Comments on First Quarter Results

JJ Buettgen, Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO, commented, “We were pleased with positive same-restaurant sales in the quarter, on top of a relatively strong sales performance in the first quarter of last year. Our same-restaurant sales gain reflected check growth partially offset by a decline in guest counts during the quarter.

“Year-over-year first quarter restaurant-level margins and profitability contracted primarily due to an increase in other restaurant operating costs, mainly repair and maintenance expense and other restaurant supplies. We accelerated spending in these critical areas to ensure our restaurant facilities support the delivery of a consistently great guest experience. These were necessary investments that will support positive results in the future. Further, we expect our inventory management system, which was fully rolled out in the first quarter, will benefit restaurant level margins in the back-half of this fiscal year and expect restaurant level margins to be in-line with guidance for the year.”

Buettgen continued, “We made progress in the quarter on our four key brand transformation pillars – menu, service, communication and atmosphere. As a result of these efforts, we are excited about our product innovation pipeline, have broadened our communication strategies to include digital and social platforms, have improved guest satisfaction metrics on quality, taste, pace of meal, and server attentiveness, and have positive early feedback from guests on certain remodel elements.”

Buettgen concluded, “Our entire team is committed to executing our long-term brand transformation strategies which should produce sustainable same-restaurant sales growth, improve long-term profitability, and maximize value for our shareholders.”

Fiscal 2016 Outlook

The Company is reaffirming its full-year Adjusted Net Income per diluted share guidance of $0.12 to $0.17, based on the following assumptions:

  • Same-Restaurant Sales – Fiscal 2016 same-restaurant sales to be in the range of flat to up 2%. Second quarter-to-date same-restaurant sales support this range.
  • Unit DevelopmentA net reduction of 11-14 Company-owned Ruby Tuesday restaurants.
  • Restaurant Level Margins – Fiscal 2016 Restaurant Level Margins ranging from 17.0% to 17.5% of restaurant sales and operating revenue which compares to 16.9% in fiscal 2015.
  • Selling, General, and Administrative Expense – Fiscal 2016 SG&A ranging from $116 to $120 million, compared to $115.3 million in fiscal 2015.
  • Tax Rate – Adjusted Net Income is calculated using the statutory tax rate of 39.69%. This provides a more consistent tax rate to facilitate review and analysis of the Company’s financial performance. The Company is limited in the amount of tax credits that can be utilized each year based upon taxable income for that year and cannot recognize a full benefit of any year’s currently generated tax credits or tax credit carry-forwards due to the Company’s tax valuation allowance.
  • Capital Expenditures – Fiscal 2016 capital expenditures ranging from $34 to $38 million.

Reclassification of Amortization of Intangible Assets

Beginning in the first quarter of 2016, the Company reclassified its Amortization of intangible assets from “Other restaurant operating costs” to “Depreciation and amortization.” The Company believes this reclassification better aligns the Company with its peers and increased both current and prior period Restaurant-Level Margins by approximately 20 basis points. The schedule accompanying the condensed unaudited consolidated financial statements has been revised to reflect the reclassification of Amortization of intangible assets for the preceding eight quarters.

*Non-GAAP Reconciliations

The Company believes excluding certain items from its financial results provides investors with a clearer understanding of the Company’s operating performance and comparison to prior-period results. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures and ratios to assess the results of the Company’s operations.

We have included EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income and Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income per share to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance. We believe these are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on our Company-wide operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on financial measures in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income and Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income per share in evaluating issuers. Because other companies in some cases calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income, or Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income per share differently from the way we calculate such measures, these metrics may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Additionally, supplemental non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The use of these measures permits a comparative assessment of the Company's operating performance relative to its performance based on GAAP results, while isolating the effects of certain items that vary from period to period without correlation to core operating performance and certain items that vary widely among similar companies. However, the inclusion of these adjusted measures should not be construed as an indication that future results will be unaffected by unusual or infrequent items or that the items for which the adjustments have been made are necessarily unusual or infrequent.

The following table shows the reconciliation of Net (Loss)/ Income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income and Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income per share, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines EBITDA as income before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization and Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, excluding certain non-cash and/or non-recurring expenses including, but not limited to, Closures and Impairments and Executive Transition. Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income is defined as Net (Loss)/ Income, excluding certain non-cash and/or non-recurring expenses/(income) as detailed in Adjusted EBITDA, net of tax as well as adjustments related to Debt Prepayment Penalties, Deferred Financing Fees, and Income Tax (Benefit)/Provision Adjusted to the Statutory Rate. Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income per share is defined as Adjusted Net (Loss)/ Income divided by diluted shares outstanding.
