"Our fourth quarter was strong, capping off a great year in which we set records and achieved major milestones for both Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins," said Nigel Travis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. "The Dunkin' Donuts U.S. annual net development growth rate exceeded five percent, and Baskin-Robbins had positive net development for the first time since 2006. Dunkin' Donuts U.S. had 3.4 percent comparable store sales growth in 2013, demonstrating the brand's continued relevance and resiliency in a challenging year for the QSR industry in general, and Baskin-Robbins U.S. had 0.8 percent comparable store sales growth, marking the third straight year of sales growth for the brand. Internationally we added 415 net new restaurants for both brands, and importantly, we made significant progress with our development goals to focus on higher profit-opportunity markets and globalizing our U.S. disciplines. Going into 2014, we look to drive growth by strengthening worldwide awareness of our two brands through global marketing initiatives, such as our recently announced partnership with Liverpool Football Club. We are also working to make our brands more accessible to consumers through programs like our DD Mobile initiative and DD Perks Rewards, which launched nationally on January 27."

"We are steadfastly committed to driving profitable growth for both our franchisees and our shareholders, a commitment we delivered on yet again in our second full year as a public company," said Paul Carbone, Chief Financial Officer, Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. "As a result of strong topline sales growth and our intense focus on restaurant-level returns, franchisee profitability for both brands is healthier than it's ever been.  Additionally, our nearly 100 percent franchised, asset-light business model enabled us to return more than $100 million to shareholders in 2013 through our quarterly dividends and ongoing share repurchases. We're also excited to announce the Board of Directors' decision to increase our first quarter dividend more than 20 percent over our fourth quarter 2013 dividend."

Global systemwide sales growth in the fourth quarter was primarily attributable to global store development and Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth (which includes stores open 54 weeks or more).

Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth in the fourth quarter was driven by increased average ticket and higher traffic resulting from our focus on operational excellence and product and marketing innovation. These product and marketing innovations resulted in strong beverage growth, led by Iced Coffee and Hot and Iced Espresso, driven by flavor news including Pumpkin; increases in Hot Chocolate, driven by the introduction of the Salted Caramel flavor; continued breakfast sandwich momentum across core sandwiches, the limited time offer Hot & Spicy Breakfast Sandwich, and incremental gains in the Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich; growth in afternoon products including Chicken Sandwiches, Deluxe Grilled Cheese, and Wraps; growth in donut sales led by the introduction of the Pumpkin Pie donut; and increased sales of Dunkin' Donuts K-Cup® portion packs driven by a $7.99 National Coffee Day offer and a two-packs-for-$19.99 offer.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. comparable store sales growth was driven by sales of Cups & Cones, Beverages and Cakes as a result of news around favorite holiday flavors such as Gingerbread Junction and Winter White Chocolate, and a new flavor, Peppermint Bark in the Dark as well as increased sales of cakes driven by new cake designs and take-home ice cream quarts.

In the fourth quarter, Dunkin' Brands franchisees and licensees opened 309 net new restaurants around the globe. This includes 149 net new Dunkin' Donuts U.S. locations, 120 net new Baskin-Robbins International locations, 44 net new Dunkin' Donuts International locations, and four net closures for Baskin-Robbins U.S. Additionally, Dunkin' Donuts U.S. franchisees remodeled 169 restaurants during the quarter.

Revenues for the fourth quarter increased 13.3 percent compared to the prior year period primarily from increased royalty income due to systemwide sales growth, increased franchise fees due to favorable development mix and incremental franchise renewals, and increased sales of ice cream products. The increase in sales of ice cream products was partially the result of a one-time delay in revenue recognition related to the shift in manufacturing to Dean Foods that negatively impacted fourth quarter sales of ice cream products in 2012.

Operating income for the fourth quarter increased $14.5 million, or 21.4 percent, from the prior year primarily as a result of the increases in royalty income, franchise fees, and margin on sales of ice cream products.  Adjusted operating income increased $9.4 million, or 11.8 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2012 as a result of the increases in royalty income and franchise fees, offset by a decrease in net income of equity method investments.

Net income for the fourth quarter increased by $7.7 million, or 22.5 percent, compared to the prior year period primarily as a result of the $14.5 million increase in operating income and a $2.0 million decrease in interest expense. This was offset by a $7.6 million increase in income tax expense and greater losses on foreign currency due to exchange rate fluctuations. Adjusted net income increased by $9.6 million, or 26.3 percent, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, as a result of the increase in adjusted operating income and a decrease in interest expense, offset by greater losses on foreign currency.

Diluted adjusted earnings per share increased by 26.5 percent to $0.43 for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period as a result of the increase in adjusted net income, offset by an increase in shares outstanding. The increase in shares outstanding is due primarily to the exercise of stock options, offset by the repurchase of 648,000 shares during 2013 (230,700 shares repurchased during the fourth quarter).

Dunkin' Donuts U.S. revenues of $138.6 million represented an increase of 8.2 percent year-over-year.  The increase was primarily a result of increased royalty income, as well as increased franchise fees due to favorable development mix and incremental franchise renewals. The increase in revenues was also driven by an increase in gains from refranchising transactions.

Dunkin' Donuts U.S. segment profit in the fourth quarter increased $11.3 million over the prior year period to $105.6 million, which was driven primarily by revenue growth.

Baskin-Robbins U.S. fourth quarter revenue increased 4.3 percent from the prior year period to $8.2 million due primarily to increased franchise fees driven by incremental franchise renewals, as well as an increase in other revenues mainly as a result of refranchising gains and transfer fees. The increase in revenues was offset by a decline in sales of ice cream products.

Segment profit for Baskin-Robbins U.S. increased $1.1 million in the fourth quarter, or 29.4 percent, year-over-year primarily as a result of reductions in general and administrative expenses, including a reduction in incentive compensation and the fact that the prior year included expenses for reserves on leased locations, as well as the increase in revenues.

Baskin-Robbins International systemwide sales increased 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter from the prior year period driven by sales growth in the Middle East and South Korea, offset by unfavorable exchange rates on sales in Japan. On a constant currency basis, systemwide sales increased by approximately 11 percent.

Baskin-Robbins International fourth quarter revenues increased 51.5 percent year-over-year to $27.2 million primarily due to increases in sales of ice cream products in the Middle East and an increase in distribution costs billed to customers, as well as a one-time delay in revenue recognition related to the shift in manufacturing to Dean Foods that impacted fourth quarter sales of ice cream products in the prior year.

Fourth quarter segment profit increased 28.4 percent year-over-year to $8.8 million, resulting from an increase in net margin on ice cream driven by the increase in sales, as well as a reduced cost of ice cream products primarily resulting from the shift in manufacturing to Dean Foods. The increase was offset by a decrease in net income of equity method investments due to decreases in net income in Japan and Korea.

COMPANY UPDATES

  • As previously disclosed, the Company is seeking to refinance its senior secured credit facility, including its senior secured term loan facility and its senior secured revolving credit facility. Upon the anticipated completion of the transaction, the Company expects its full-year 2014 interest expense to be approximately $70 million, representing approximately $10 million in annual interest expense savings and $0.05 in incremental earnings per share in 2014. The anticipated weighted interest rate on the Company's $1.8 billion in outstanding debt will be 3.4 percent. The refinancing is not yet complete and remains subject to customary closing conditions. The Company will provide further details upon the closing of the transaction.
  • The Company today announced that the Board of Directors declared a first quarter cash dividend of $0.23 per share, payable on March 19, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 10, 2014. This represents a 21 percent increase over the Company's fourth quarter 2013 dividend.
  • The Company repurchased 230,700 shares of common stock during the fourth quarter.
  • The Company today announced that the Board of Directors authorized a new program to repurchase up to an aggregate of $125 million of its outstanding common stock over the next two years.

FISCAL YEAR 2014 TARGETS

As described below, the Company is providing certain targets regarding its 2014 expectations.

  • The Company expects Dunkin' Donuts U.S. comparable store sales growth of 3 to 4 percent and Baskin-Robbins U.S. comparable store sales growth of 1 to 3 percent.
  • The Company expects that Dunkin' Donuts U.S. will add between 380 and 410 net new restaurants representing greater than 5 percent net restaurant growth and expects Baskin-Robbins U.S. will add between 5 and 10 net new restaurants.
  • Internationally, the Company is targeting opening 300 to 400 net new restaurants across the two brands, inclusive of the anticipated closing of approximately 100 small, kiosk locations in the Philippines throughout the year. The closure of these locations is immaterial to Dunkin' Donuts International business segment profit.
  • Globally, the Company expects to open between 685 and 800 net new units.
  • The Company expects revenue growth of between 6 and 8 percent and adjusted operating income growth of between 10 and 12 percent.
  • The Company expects adjusted earnings per share of $1.79 to $1.83, which would represent 17 percent to 20 percent year-over-year adjusted earnings per share growth. This target is inclusive of expected savings from the refinancing and is based on diluted weighted average shares for the full year of 108.2 million.

We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide our investors with useful information regarding our historical operating results. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. Use of the terms adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net income, and diluted adjusted earnings per share may differ from similar measures reported by other companies.  Adjusted operating income and adjusted net income are reconciled from the respective measures determined under GAAP in the attached table "Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc. Non-GAAP Reconciliations."

Additionally, the Company has included metrics such as systemwide sales growth and comparable store sales growth, which are commonly used statistical measures in the quick service restaurant industry and are important to understanding the Company's performance.

The Company uses "systemwide sales growth" to refer to the percentage change in sales at both franchisee- and company-owned restaurants from the comparable period of the prior year. Changes in systemwide sales are driven by changes in comparable store sales and changes in the number of restaurants.

The Company uses "DD U.S. comparable store sales growth," "BR U.S. comparable store sales growth," "DD International comparable store sales growth," and "BR International comparable store sales growth," which are calculated by including only sales from franchisee- and company-owned restaurants that have been open at least 54 weeks and that have reported sales in the current and comparable prior year week.

(a) Represents the impact of the one-time delay in revenue recognition as a result of a change in shipping terms related to the shift in manufacturing to Dean Foods, based on actual shipments.

(b) For the fiscal year ended December 28, 2013, the adjustment represents transition-related general and administrative costs incurred related to the closure of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream manufacturing plant in Peterborough, Canada, such as information technology integration, project management, and transportation costs. For the three months and fiscal year ended December 29, 2012, the adjustment represents transition-related general and administrative costs, as well as accelerated depreciation and incremental costs of ice cream products.

(c) Represents the incremental legal reserve recorded related to the Quebec Superior Court's ruling in the Bertico litigation, in which the Court found for the Plaintiffs and issued a judgment against Dunkin' Brands in the amount of approximately $C16.4 million, plus costs and interest.

(d) Adjusted operating income margin calculated based on total revenues, excluding change in shipping terms.

(e) Tax impact of adjustments, excluding the Bertico litigation, calculated at a 40% effective tax rate.

(f) Tax impact of Bertico litigation adjustment calculated as if the incremental reserve had not been recorded. The tax impact recorded in the second quarter of 2012 was a $3.9 million tax benefit representing the actual direct tax benefit expected to be realized, as well as a $2.2 million tax benefit recorded that fully reversed in the third and fourth quarters of 2012 based on interim tax provision requirements.  The tax impact for the three months ended December 29, 2012 represents $1.0 million of the tax benefit that was expected to reverse.

(g) Represents income tax benefits resulting from the settlement of historical tax positions settled during the period, primarily related to the accounting for the acquisition of the Company by private equity firms in 2006.

(h) Represents deferred tax expense recognized due to an increase in our overall state tax rate for a shift in the apportionment of income to state jurisdictions, as a result of the closure of the Peterborough manufacturing plant and transition to Dean Foods.
