  • Revenues were up 10.1% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, due primarily to higher domestic supply chain revenues attributable to volumes from increased order counts combined with higher cheese and other commodity prices, higher domestic franchise and Company-owned store revenues, and higher international revenues attributable to same store sales and store count growth.
  • Net Income was up 18.4% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, driven by domestic and international same store sales growth, international store count growth and higher supply chain margins.
  • Diluted EPS was 57 cents for the second quarter versus 47 cents in the prior year quarter – an increase of ten cents, or 21.3%.  This increase was due to higher net income and lower weighted average diluted shares outstanding. 

The table below outlines certain statistical measures utilized by the Company to analyze its performance.  Refer to the Comments on Regulation G section on page four for additional details.

Additionally, subsequent to the second quarter of 2013, the Company repurchased and retired 189,185 shares of its common stock for approximately $10.9 million, or an average of $57.71 per share.

Items Affecting Comparability

The Company's reported financial results for the two fiscal quarters of 2013 are not comparable to the reported financial results for the equivalent period in 2012 due to the refinancing that occurred in the first quarter of 2012. The table below presents certain items that affect comparability between 2013 and 2012 financial results.  The Company believes that including such information is critical to the understanding of its financial results for the two fiscal quarters of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012 (See the Comments on Regulation G section on page four for additional details).

In addition to the items noted in the table below, the Company had lower weighted average diluted shares outstanding that resulted in an increase in diluted EPS of nearly one and one half cents in the second quarter of 2013 and approximately three cents in the two fiscal quarters of 2013.

Additionally, the Company incurred $2.1 million of interest expense on the 2007 borrowings subsequent to the closing of the 2012 recapitalization but prior to the repayment of the 2007 borrowings, resulting in the payment of interest on both the 2007 and 2012 facilities for a short period of time.

(3)     Represents a valuation allowance recorded on a deferred tax asset related to a capital loss that resulted from a write-off of the tax basis goodwill associated with the sale of the six remaining Company-owned stores in a certain market in the first quarter of 2012. 

Liquidity

As of June 16, 2013, the Company had approximately:

  • $40.8 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents;

  • $62.3 million of available borrowings under its $100.0 million variable funding notes, net of letters of credit issued of $37.7 million.

The Company's cash borrowing rate averaged 5.4% for both the second quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2012.  Additionally, the Company invested $11.6 million in capital expenditures during the two fiscal quarters of 2013, versus $8.0 million in the two fiscal quarters of 2012.

Comments on Regulation G

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this press release, the Company has included non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G due to items affecting comparability between fiscal quarters.  The Company has also included metrics such as global retail sales growth and same store sales growth, which are commonly used statistical measures in the quick-service restaurant industry that are important to understanding Company performance.

The Company uses "Diluted EPS, as adjusted," which is calculated as reported Diluted EPS adjusted for the items that affect comparability to the prior year period discussed above.  The most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is Diluted EPS.  The Company believes that the Diluted EPS, as adjusted measure is important and useful to investors and other interested persons and that such persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between reporting periods.  The Company uses Diluted EPS, as adjusted to internally evaluate operating performance, to evaluate itself against its peers and to determine future performance targets and long-range planning.  Additionally, the Company believes that analysts covering the Company's stock performance generally eliminate these items affecting comparability when preparing their financial models, when determining their published EPS estimates and when benchmarking the Company against its competitors.   

The Company uses "Global retail sales" to refer to total worldwide retail sales at Company-owned and franchise stores. The Company believes global retail sales information is useful in analyzing revenues because franchisees pay royalties that are based on a percentage of franchise retail sales. The Company reviews comparable industry global retail sales information to assess business trends and to track the growth of the Domino's Pizza® brand. In addition, domestic supply chain revenues are directly impacted by changes in domestic franchise retail sales. Retail sales for franchise stores are reported to the Company by its franchisees and are not included in Company revenues.  

The Company uses "Same store sales growth," calculated by including only sales from stores that also had sales in the comparable period of the prior year.  International same store sales growth is calculated similarly to domestic same store sales growth.  Changes in international same store sales are reported on a constant dollar basis, which reflects changes in international local currency sales. 

The Company uses "Free cash flow," calculated as cash flows from operations less capital expenditures, both as reported under GAAP.  The Company believes that the free cash flow measure is important to investors and other interested persons, and that such persons benefit from having a measure which communicates how much cash flow is available for working capital needs or to be used for repurchasing debt, making acquisitions, repurchasing common stock, paying dividends or other similar uses of cash.
