Highlights

  • Same-store sales growth rates improved compared to previous quarter
  • Introduction of new single-serve coffee platform and new lunch offerings contributed to sales growth
  • Company secures one-year $400 million revolving bank facility and anticipates obtaining longer-term financing during the fourth quarter

OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Tim Hortons Inc. (TSX: THI, NYSE: THI) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2013.

"I am pleased to see continued progress in our business, including improving sales and profitability, despite a challenging operating environment," said Marc Caira, president and CEO.  "Our same-store sales growth was particularly strong in our U.S. business.  We still have more work ahead of us as we position Tim Hortons for sustainable and profitable growth in today's competitive reality, and we continue to develop our comprehensive strategic roadmap."

Consolidated Results

All percentage increases and decreases represent year-over-year changes for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012, unless otherwise noted.

Systemwide sales(4) increased 5.3% on a constant currency basis.  This growth resulted from new restaurant development in Canada and the U.S., and from same-store sales growth of 1.7% in Canada and 3.0% in the U.S.

Total revenues increased 2.9% to $825.4 million compared to $802.0 million last year.  The revenue growth rate was below that of systemwide sales due to a 0.3% decline in distribution sales, the largest component of revenues, driven primarily by lower commodity costs and corresponding decreases in pricing we charged to restaurant owners.

Variable interest entities ("VIEs") sales increased 12.4%.  While the number of non-owned restaurants consolidated for accounting purposes has decreased since the start of fiscal 2013, it remains higher than it was a year ago.

Rents and royalties grew by 5.2%, consistent with the growth in systemwide sales.  Franchise fees increased by 17.3%, due to an increase in renovations and restaurant resales, partially offset by fewer restaurant openings.

Total costs and expenses increased 1.3%, growing at a rate below that of revenue due to lower corporate reorganization costs, a moderate increase in cost of sales and a decrease in general and administrative ("G&A") expense.

Cost of sales increased by 0.9%, below the growth rate of revenue, as the effects of higher sales volumes were more than offset by lower underlying commodity costs.  Operating expenses increased by 7.0%, due primarily to higher depreciation and rent associated with new properties, and the depreciation impact of the digital menu board program.  Franchise fee costs increased by 18.0% due to increased renovation activity, partially offset by lower costs associated with fewer restaurant openings. 

G&A expenses decreased by 5.2% due to lower salaries and benefits, driven by vacancies, most of which have now been filled, and lower stock-based compensation expense.

We recognized an asset impairment charge of $2.9 million this quarter, relating to certain underperforming markets in the U.S., with $2.5 million applied to the U.S. operating segment and $0.4 million recorded in VIEs.

In the third quarter of 2012, we incurred $8.6 million of corporate reorganization expenses relating to termination costs, CEO transition costs and professional fees.  Corporate reorganization expense was $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Operating income of $168.8 million was up 9.9% from $153.7 million in the third quarter of 2012.  The growth was largely the result of an increase in systemwide sales, as well as a decrease in corporate reorganization and G&A expenses.  Adjusted operating income(3), which excludes the impact of the corporate reorganization expenses, increased 4.7% to $169.8 million. (Please refer to "Information on non-GAAP Measure" below for a reconciliation of adjusted operating income to operating income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure).

Net income attributable to Tim Hortons Inc. was $113.9 million, an increase of 7.7% from $105.7 million a year earlier.  The improvement resulted from higher operating income, partially offset by a higher effective tax rate.

EPS of $0.75 grew by $0.07 or 10.7% due to the increase in net income attributable to THI, as well as the positive, cumulative impact of our share repurchase programs.  The asset impairment charge and corporate reorganization expenses negatively impacted EPS by $0.02 in in Q3 2013, and corporate reorganization expenses negatively impacted EPS by $0.04 in Q3 2012.  On average we had 2.7% fewer fully-diluted common shares outstanding in the third quarter compared to the same period last year.

Segmented Performance Commentary

We delivered positive same-store sales growth in the third quarter despite ongoing challenges in the operating environment.  We believe uncertainty surrounding the rate of economic recovery continues to impact consumer confidence and discretionary spending in both Canada and the U.S, which has also resulted in a competitive environment that remains intensified.

We have reclassified the segment data for the third quarter of 2012 to conform to the current period's presentation, which has been revised consistent with changes to our reportable segments announced earlier this year.

Canada

Same-store sales in our Canadian segment grew by 1.7%. The increase was driven by gains in average cheque resulting primarily from pricing, and to a lesser extent, favourable product mix.  The decline in same-store transactions has slowed over the course of 2013.

Operating income in the Canadian segment was $179.6 million, an increase of $7.6 million or 4.4%.  Systemwide sales growth of 4.7% in Canada led to higher rents and royalties income and a higher allocation of supply chain income.  We opened 34 restaurants in Canada in the third quarter.

United States

U.S. same-store sales increased by 3.0% in the quarter, driven primarily by an increase in transactions. 

Operating income was $2.7 million in the U.S. segment, an increase of $1.3 million from the third quarter of 2012.  The asset impairment charge had a negative impact of $2.5 million on segment operating income in the third quarter of 2013.  The U.S. segment benefited from systemwide sales growth of 10.8%, which led to increased rents and royalties revenues and a higher allocation of supply chain income.  The U.S. supply chain allocation also benefited from favourable product margin variability.  We opened 13 restaurants in the U.S. during the quarter.

Corporate services

The Corporate services segment incurred an operating loss of $14.3 million, compared to a loss of $13.0 million in the third quarter of 2012.  The primary driver of the higher operating loss was a reversal of favourable product margins associated with our supply chain management activities recognized in the first half of 2013.  Lower G&A expenses, due mainly to lower salaries and benefits, contributed favourably during the quarter. 

Our international partner, Apparel FZCO, opened 4 restaurants in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) during the quarter, including the first Tim Hortons restaurant in Kuwait.

Significant Developments & Initiatives

New Financing

In August 2013, the Board of Directors approved a $900 million increase in debt levels of the Company, intended to be used to repurchase common shares to create value for shareholders. We are targeting a total of $1 billion in share repurchases in the 12-month period to August 2014, subject to market conditions, the negotiation and execution of agreements, and regulatory approvals.

In October 2013, we entered into a one-year, $400.0 million revolving bank facility, to provide interim financing as we finalize alternatives for the increase in our long-term debt levels, and to fund the expanded share repurchase program, which commenced in September 2013. We anticipate obtaining longer-term financing for a portion of the $900 million increase in the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to the negotiation and execution of agreements, and barring any unforeseen changes in market conditions. We expect to provide further details upon completion of a transaction.

Board declares dividend payment of $0.26 per common share

On November 6, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.26 per common share, payable on December 10, 2013 to shareholders of record as of November 25, 2013.  Dividends are declared and paid in Canadian dollars to all shareholders with Canadian resident addresses. For U.S. resident shareholders, dividends paid will be converted to U.S. dollars based on prevailing exchange rates at the time of conversion by Tim Hortons for registered shareholders and by Clearing and Depository Services Inc. for beneficial shareholders.

(3) Information on non-GAAP Measure 

Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP measure. Management uses adjusted operating income to assist in the evaluation of year-over-year performance and believes that it will be helpful to investors as a measure of underlying operational growth rates. This non-GAAP measure is not intended to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP. The Company's use of the term adjusted operating income may differ from similar measures reported by other companies. The reconciliation of operating income, a GAAP measure, to adjusted operating income, a non-GAAP measure, is set forth in the table below:

(4) Total systemwide sales growth includes restaurant level sales at both Company-operated and Franchised restaurants. Approximately 99.6% of our systemwide restaurants were franchised as at September 29, 2013. Systemwide sales growth is determined using a constant exchange rate where noted, to exclude the effects of foreign currency translation. U.S. dollar sales are converted to Canadian dollar amounts using the average exchange rate of the base year for the period covered.  For the third quarter of 2013, systemwide sales on a constant currency basis increased 5.3% compared to the third quarter of 2012.  Systemwide sales growth in Canadian dollars, including the effects of foreign currency translation, was 5.7% in the third quarter of 2013.  Systemwide sales are important to understanding our business performance as they impact our franchise royalties and rental income, as well as our distribution income. Changes in systemwide sales are driven by changes in average same-store sales and changes in the number of systemwide restaurants, and are ultimately driven by consumer demand.

We believe systemwide sales and same-store sales growth provide meaningful information to investors regarding the size of our system, the overall health and financial performance of the system, and the strength of our brand and restaurant owner base, which ultimately impacts our consolidated and segmented financial performance. Franchised restaurant sales are not generally included in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (except for certain non-owned restaurants consolidated in accordance with applicable accounting rules).  The amount of systemwide sales impacts our rental and royalties revenues, as well as distribution revenues.

TIM HORTONS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Income Statement Definitions
   
Sales Sales include Distribution sales, sales from company-operated restaurants,
and sales from consolidated Non-owned restaurants. Distribution sales
comprise sales of products (including a minimal amount of manufacturing
product sales to third parties), supplies, and restaurant equipment outside of
initial restaurant establishment or renovations (see "Franchise Fees") that are
shipped directly from our warehouses or by third-party distributors to
restaurants or retailers through our supply chain. Sales from company-
operated restaurants and consolidated Non-owned restaurants comprise
restaurant-level sales to our guests. The consolidation of Non-owned
restaurants essentially replaces our rents and royalties with restaurant
sales, which are included in VIEs' sales.
   
Rents and royalties Includes royalties and rental revenues earned, net of relief, and certain
advertising levies associated with our Canadian Advertising Fund relating
primarily to the Expanded Menu Board Program.
   
Franchise fees Includes license fees and equipment packages, at initiation of a restaurant
and in connection with the renewal or renovation, and revenues related to
master license agreements.
   
Cost of sales Cost of sales includes costs associated with the management of our supply
chain, including cost of goods, direct labour and depreciation, as well as the
cost of goods delivered by third-party distributors to restaurants for which
we manage the supply chain logistics, and for canned coffee sold through
grocery stores. Cost of sales also includes food, paper and labour costs of
Company-operated restaurants and consolidated Non-owned restaurants.
   
Operating expenses Includes rent expense related to properties leased to restaurant owners and
other property-related costs including depreciation. Also included are certain
operating expenses related to our distribution business such as warehouse
technology costs and utilities, and product development costs.
   
Franchise fee costs Includes the cost of equipment sold to restaurant owners at the commencement
or in connection with the renovation of their restaurant business, including
training and other costs necessary to assist with a successful restaurant
opening, and/or the introduction of our Cold Stone Creamery® co-branding
offering into existing locations. Also includes support costs related to
project-related and/or operational initiatives.
   
General and administrative
expenses
Includes costs that cannot be directly related to generating revenue,
including expenses associated with our corporate and administrative
functions, depreciation of head office buildings and office equipment,
and the majority of our information technology systems.
   
Corporate reorganization
expenses
Includes termination costs and professional fees related to the implementation
of our new Corporate Centre and Business Unit organizational structure,
as well as CEO transition costs.
   
Equity income Includes income from equity investments in partnerships and joint
ventures and other minority investments over which we exercise
significant influence. Equity income from these investments is
considered to be an integrated part of our business operations
and is therefore included in operating income.
   
Other (income) expense, net Includes (income) expenses that are not directly derived from the
Company's primary businesses, such as foreign currency adjustments,
gains and losses on asset sales, and other asset write-offs.
   
Net income attributable to
non-controlling interests
Relates to the consolidation of Non-owned restaurants pursuant to
applicable accounting rules.
