Domino's Pizza Announces 2004 Earnings and Increased Annual Dividend
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal 2004, ended January 2, 2005.

David A. Brandon, Domino's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: "The ultimate test of any company is how it performs in a tough business environment. We generated almost $88 million in free cash flow in 2004, despite extraordinary cost pressures, significant competitive challenges and the distractions associated with executing a large IPO in the middle of the year."

Dividends to Increase by 54% in 2005
Following its IPO, the Company instituted its first dividend for the partial year 2004 of 6.5 cents per quarter, or 26 cents on an annualized basis. Based on the Company's strong cash flow characteristics, management has consistently stated their intention to deploy an appropriate portion of free cash flow towards paying a meaningful dividend to its shareholders. The first dividend declaration was simply an effort to begin this process.
After posting successful results for the full year 2004, and reviewing its 2005 outlook, the Company approved an increase in its annual dividend to 10 cents per quarter, or 40 cents per year. This 54% increase in the annual dividend will be effective for the next dividend to be paid on March 30, 2005 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2005. The Company's resulting dividend yield is approximately 2.3% using the Company's current market price per share of $17.11 per share.
Brandon commented on the dividend increase: "We are comfortable raising our dividend payment because of the strength of our business model and the free cash flow it generates. We are now one of the highest dividend-yielding companies in the QSR industry, with significant remaining free cash flow to invest in the growth of our core business while also paying down our debt. We plan to review our dividend payout ratio at this time each year, and consider increasing our dividend as appropriate."
Long Range and 2005 Outlook The Company reaffirmed its long range outlook as follows: Year-over-Year Growth Domestic same store sales 1% - 3% International same store sales 3% - 5% Net unit growth 200 - 250 Global retail sales 4% - 6% Net income 11% - 13%
David Brandon commented on the Company's 2005 outlook: "Based on our current business outlook and budget assumptions, we expect our 2005 EPS growth to be consistent with our long-range outlook of 11%-13%, after adjusting for the 53rd week in 2004 and the impact of the one-time lease charge we took in the fourth quarter of 2004."
Brandon concluded: "We will continue our EPS growth by driving both domestic and international store growth, increasing our same stores sales, improving the operating margins of our Company-owned stores, and further debt reductions."
Management noted that the 53rd week positively impacted EPS by 4 cents, while the lease charge negatively affected EPS by 3 cents. Adjusting for both, the 2004 comparable baseline would be $1.11 EPS.

Change in Accounting for Leases
The Company recently undertook a comprehensive review of its accounting practices for leases, as a result of the recent changes announced by other companies in the restaurant industry related to lease accounting policies. As a result of this review, the Company made an accounting correction that resulted in an acceleration of rent expense under certain leases that contain fixed escalations in rental payments. The Company recorded a cumulative rent expense adjustment relating to this matter of approximately $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2004, or 3 cents per diluted share for full year 2004. This accounting adjustment does not affect the Company's historical or future cash flows or the timing or amounts of rental payments. Additionally, this correction is not material to prior periods.
SUMMARY OF FINANCIAL RESULTS Global Retail Sales Growth
Global retail sales include all retail sales worldwide at Company-owned and franchise stores (see Definitions).

(1) Total revenues include retail sales at Company-owned stores, royalties from franchise stores, and related sales from distribution operations, which sell food and equipment to all Company-owned stores and certain franchise stores. Company-owned store and franchise store revenues may vary significantly from period to period due to changes in store count mix, while distribution revenues may vary significantly as a result of fluctuations in food prices, primarily cheese prices.
The increases in fourth quarter and fiscal 2004 total revenues versus prior year were due to increases in distribution revenues, driven primarily by higher commodity costs, including cheese, increased royalty revenues relating to increases in retail sales both domestically and internationally, and the inclusion of the 53rd week in 2004. The published cheese block price-per- pound averaged $1.61 and $1.64 in the fourth quarter and fiscal 2004, respectively, up from $1.53 and $1.31 in the comparable periods in 2003.

(1) Domestic franchise operations do not have a cost of sales component. Accordingly, the domestic franchise operating margin equals domestic franchise revenues.
Domino's Pizza: FY04 Earnings Release, Page Five
The increases in the fourth quarter and fiscal 2004 total operating margin versus prior year were due primarily to increases in retail sales from both international and domestic franchise operations, which drove higher royalty revenues, as well as the inclusion of the 53rd week in fiscal 2004. Total operating margin was negatively impacted by margin pressures at Company-owned stores, primarily due to higher commodity costs, as well as lower domestic Company-owned stores same store sales in the fourth quarter. The domestic Company-owned stores and domestic distribution operating margins were also negatively affected by approximately $2.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively, relating to the change in accounting for leases.
The total operating margin as a percentage of total revenues decreased 0.5 and 0.8 percentage points during the fourth quarter and fiscal 2004, respectively. Operating margins as a percentage of total revenues were negatively impacted during these periods as a result of higher commodity costs, which impacted both Company-owned store and distribution margins, as well as the change in accounting for leases and lower Company-owned same store sales in the fourth quarter. These decreases were offset in part by increases in domestic and international franchise royalty revenues as well as the inclusion of the 53rd week in fiscal 2004.
For further discussion of operating margins, see "Items Affecting Comparability" on pages eight and nine of this release.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses increased $3.6 million, or 6.9%, during the fourth quarter of 2004 versus the prior year, and increased $6.2 million, or 3.5%, during fiscal 2004 versus the prior year. The increase in general and administrative expenses during the fourth quarter was due primarily to the impact of the 53rd week in fiscal 2004.
General and administrative expenses during fiscal 2004 were negatively impacted by a $10.0 million management agreement termination fee paid to an affiliate in connection with our IPO, as well as a $3.8 million year-over-year decrease in gains on the sale/disposal of assets. In addition, the Company recognized a credit of $1.7 million in 2003 relating to the collection of a previously fully reserved note receivable. General and administrative expenses were also negatively impacted by higher administrative labor and office rents as well as the impact related to the 53rd week in fiscal 2004. Offsetting these increases in general and administrative expenses was approximately $15.7 million of expenses incurred in connection with the Company's June 2003 recapitalization.
Income from Operations
Income from operations increased $5.2 million, or 9.5%, during the fourth quarter of 2004 versus the prior year, and increased $11.9 million, or 7.5%, during fiscal 2004 versus the prior year. Income from operations was positively impacted by increases in royalty revenues from international and domestic franchise stores and the impact from the 53rd week in 2004. These gains were offset in part by higher food costs at our Company-owned stores and the negative impact of the change in accounting for leases.

Interest Expense, net
Interest expense, net decreased $4.6 million, or 22.5%, during the fourth quarter of 2004 versus the prior year, and decreased $13.8 million, or 18.6%, during fiscal 2004 versus the prior year.
The average outstanding debt balance, excluding capital lease obligations, decreased $160.7 million to $793.2 million in the fourth quarter, from $953.9 million in the prior year. The Company's effective borrowing rate decreased 0.6 percentage points to 5.3% during the fourth quarter, from 5.9% in the prior year. Included in interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2004 and 2003 was deferred financing fee and debt discount expense of $1.3 million and $2.1 million, respectively. Interest expense for the quarter was also negatively affected by the inclusion of the 53rd week.
The average outstanding debt balance, excluding capital lease obligations, increased $94.9 million to $880.4 million in fiscal 2004, from $785.5 million in the prior year. The Company's effective borrowing rate decreased 0.9 percentage points to 5.8% during fiscal 2004, from 6.7% in the prior year. Included in interest expense in 2004 and 2003 was deferred financing fee and debt discount expense of $7.8 million and $20.8 million, respectively.
Other expense increased $0.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2004 versus the prior year, and decreased $11.9 million during fiscal 2004 versus the prior year. The 2004 other amounts were comprised of losses incurred in connection with debt retirements, including $9.0 million incurred in connection with the redemption of $109.1 million of Domino's, Inc.'s senior subordinated notes in August 2004. The 2003 other amounts were comprised of losses incurred in connection with debt retirements, including $20.4 million of bond tender fees associated with the 2003 recapitalization.
Net income increased $5.7 million to $27.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2004 versus the prior year, and increased $23.3 million to $62.3 million during fiscal 2004 versus the prior year. These increases in net income were due primarily to the aforementioned increases in income from operations and decreases in interest expense, and decreases in other expense for the full year.
Pro Forma EPS
Pro forma diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2004 were $1.12. Diluted earnings per share data, as reported, for the 2004 and 2003 fiscal years are disclosed in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of income.
Management believes it is helpful to investors to be presented with a pro forma EPS number which is based on its new capital structure and anticipated ongoing financing and related costs following the completion of the Company's initial public offering. As a result, the Company is providing pro forma EPS amounts for full year 2004, assuming that the following transactions occurred at the beginning of 2004:
Domino's Pizza: FY04 Earnings Release, Page Seven
(i) the reclassification of previously outstanding Class A Common Stock and Class L Common Stock into Common Stock; and
(ii) the issuance of the 9,375,000 shares issued in the IPO and the redemption of $109.1 million of senior subordinated notes, resulting in a reduction of interest expense of approximately $2.1 million ($1.3 million after-tax) in each of the first two fiscal quarters of 2004 and $1.6 million ($1.0 million after-tax) in the third fiscal quarter of 2004.
Further, for pro forma purposes, the Company has eliminated certain non- recurring costs recognized in the third quarter of 2004 related to IPO including:
(i) the $10.0 million payment made to an affiliate of our former majority shareholder to terminate the management agreement between that affiliate and the Company; and
(ii) the $9.0 million premium on the redemption of the senior subordinated notes and the $3.7 million write-off of related debt discount and deferred financing costs.
The following table reconciles net income, as reported to pro forma net income, and also presents the diluted weighted average shares of common stock outstanding used to determine pro forma diluted earnings per share. The denominator in the pro forma diluted EPS calculations below assumes that the capital structure in place after our IPO was in place for all of fiscal 2004.

Items Affecting Comparability
The Company's reported operating margin amounts in 2004 are not comparable to the amounts reported in 2003 due to the estimated effect of the 53rd week in 2004, the inclusion of a charge relating to a correction in accounting for leases and the effect of the "pass-through" nature of changes in cheese prices on the consolidated and domestic distribution operating margins as a percentage of related revenues. The tables below present operating margin information adjusted for these items. Management believes that including such information is critical to the understanding of our results for the fourth quarter and full year 2004 as compared to similar periods in 2003.
Fourth Quarter 2004 (in thousands) Domestic Company- owned Domestic Domestic Stores Franchise Distribution International Consolidated Revenues, as reported $122,960 $51,426 $262,827 $41,314 $478,527 53rd week adjustment (7,400) (3,030) (16,690) (2,510) (29,630) Revenues, as adjusted $115,560 $48,396 $246,137 $38,804 $448,897 Cost of sales, as reported $102,394 $ - $239,255 $21,193 $362,842 53rd week adjustment (5,020) - (15,330) (1,350) (21,700) Change in lease accounting (2,379) - (848) - (3,227) Cost of sales, as adjusted $94,995 $ - $223,077 $19,843 $337,915 2004 operating margin, as adjusted $20,565 $48,396 $23,060 $18,961 $110,982 2004 operating margin as a percentage of revenues 17.8% 100.0% 9.4% 48.9% 24.7% 2003 operating margin as a percentage of revenues (1) 19.8% 100.0% 9.3% 46.2% 24.5% Full Year 2004 (in thousands) Domestic Company- owned Domestic Domestic Stores Franchise Distribution International Consolidated Revenues, as reported $382,458 $155,030 $792,026 $116,983 $1,446,497 53rd week adjustment (7,400) (3,030) (16,690) (2,510) (29,630) Revenues, as adjusted $375,058 $152,000 $775,336 $114,473 $1,416,867 Cost of sales, as reported $313,586 $ - $718,937 $60,293 $1,092,816 53rd week adjustment (5,020) - (15,330) (1,350) (21,700) Change in lease accounting (2,379) - (848) - (3,227) Cost of sales, as adjusted $306,187 $ - $702,759 $58,943 $1,067,889 2004 operating margin, as adjusted $68,871 $152,000 $72,577 $55,530 $348,978 2004 operating margin as a percentage of revenues 18.4% 100.0% 9.4% 48.5% 24.6% 2003 operating margin as a percentage of revenues (1) 19.6% 100.0% 9.6% 46.0% 24.4%
(1) The consolidated and domestic distribution 2003 operating margin as a percentage of related revenues presented above have been adjusted to eliminate the impact of fluctuations in cheese prices.
Consolidated operating margins as adjusted improved 0.2 percentage points in both the fourth quarter and full year 2004 compared to the prior periods in 2003. These increases were due primarily to increases in royalty revenues resulting from strong global retail sales, offset in part by margin pressures at our Company-owned stores as described below.
Domestic Company-owned store operating margins as adjusted decreased 2.0 percentage points and 1.2 percentage points in the fourth quarter and full year 2004, respectively, compared to the prior periods in 2003. The decrease in the fourth quarter operating margin was due primarily to increases in food costs as a result of higher commodity prices, as well as the effect of a decrease in same store sales. The decrease in operating margin for the full year was due primarily to increases in commodity costs as well as increases in occupancy costs.
Domino's Pizza: FY04 Earnings Release, Page Nine
Domestic distribution operating margins as adjusted increased 0.1 percentage points for the fourth quarter of 2004 and decreased 0.2 percentage points for the full year 2004, each compared to the comparable period in 2003. Operating margins were positively impacted by volumes and negatively impacted by delivery and insurance costs.
Due to the fact that changes in cheese prices are a "pass-through" in domestic distribution revenues and cost of sales, such changes have no impact on income. However, cheese price changes do impact operating margin as a percentage of revenues. Had the 2004 cheese prices been in effect during 2003, the total operating margin as a percentage of total revenues would have been approximately 24.5% and 24.4% for the quarter and full year in 2003. Similarly, had the 2004 cheese prices been in effect during 2003, the domestic distribution operating margin as a percentage of domestic distribution revenues would have been approximately 9.3% and 9.6% for the quarter and full year in 2003. These amounts are presented in the table above.
At the end of 2004, the Company had $780.7 million in total debt and $40.4 million of cash and cash equivalents. Approximately 71% of outstanding borrowings were contractually fixed at the end of fiscal 2004. During 2004, the Company repaid $180.7 million of outstanding borrowings, including the $109.1 million of senior subordinated notes that were retired in August 2004 as part of the IPO. During the fourth quarter, the Company repaid $25.1 million of borrowings, primarily comprised of $15.0 million of term loans and $10.0 million of senior subordinated notes. The Company is currently not required to pay down principal on its senior subordinated notes until 2011. The next scheduled principal amortization payment of $1.2 million on its senior credit facility is due on March 31, 2006. As of January 2, 2005, the Company had no borrowings under its $125.0 million revolving credit facility. Letters of credit issued under the revolving credit facility were $25.5 million at January 2, 2005.
Management believes it is helpful to investors to be presented with a free cash flow number which assists the investor in determining how much operating cash flow, adjusted for capital expenditure investments, is available to be used for de-levering, making acquisitions, paying dividends, repurchasing shares or similar uses of cash. The Company's free cash flow, as reconciled below to cash flows from operations as determined under generally accepted accounting principles, was $87.7 million in 2004.
(in thousands) Fiscal 2004 Cash flows from operations, as reported $113,462 Capital expenditures, as reported (39,763) Pro forma IPO expenses, excluding non-cash items, as disclosed and discussed on page seven of this release 14,009 Free cash flow $87,708 Domino's Pizza: FY04 Earnings Release, Page Ten
The Company uses "Global retail sales" to refer to total worldwide retail sales at Company-owned and franchise stores. Management believes global retail sales information is useful in analyzing revenues, because franchisees pay royalties that are based on a percentage of franchise retail sales. Management reviews comparable industry global retail sales information to assess business trends and to track the growth of the Domino's Pizza(R) brand. In addition, distribution 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 including only sales from stores that also had sales in the comparable period of the prior year, but excluding sales from certain seasonal locations such as stadiums and concert arenas. 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.
Comments on Regulation G
In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this Press Release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G as a result of the significant changes in the Company's capital structure resulting from our 2003 recapitalization and IPO. The Company has included "Pro Forma EPS," calculated based on "Pro Forma Net Income," which are both non-GAAP financial measures. The Company's management believes that these measurements are important to investors and other interested persons and that such persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and for comparison with other companies in the industry. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures will be helpful to investors in understanding and evaluating the Company's performance in the periods immediately following the IPO, management does not expect to continue to provide such non-GAAP financial measures once the effects of the significant changes to the Company's capital structure are able to be fully reflected in the Company's financial statements.
The Company has also included "Free cash flow", calculated using cash flows from operations and capital expenditures, both as reported, as well as certain pro forma expenses, net of tax used to arrive at Pro Forma Net Income discussed above. The Company's management 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 flows are available to be used for de-levering, making acquisitions, paying dividends, repurchasing shares or similar uses of cash.
