Domino's Pizza Announces Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results

ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 14, 2009. Domestic same store sales were down 0.7% and international same store sales grew 4.1%. The international division continued its strong performance, posting its 62nd consecutive quarter of same store sales growth. Net income as-reported was down 22.4% versus the prior year, due primarily to the negative impacts of foreign currency, gains on the sale of Company-owned stores in 2008 and expenses incurred in connection with changes made to the Company's stock option plans, offset in part by gains on the extinguishment of debt.

    --  Diluted EPS was $0.25 on an as-reported basis for the second quarter,
        down $0.07 from the as-reported diluted EPS in the prior year period,
        due primarily to the aforementioned decrease in net income.  However,
        excluding items affecting comparability, diluted EPS declined $0.01,
        primarily due to the negative impact of foreign currency exchange
        rates on international royalty revenues and lower operating income
        from domestic store operations, offset in part by improvements in
        operating performance in the Company's international and supply chain
        business units. (See the Items Affecting Comparability section and the
        Comments on Regulation G section.)


    --  Global Retail Sales were down 4.7% in the second quarter, or up 3.8%
        when excluding the impact of foreign currency.

    (1) The International Stores openings reported in the above table
    benefited from the conversion of 86 stores in Spain to Domino's Pizza
    stores in the second quarter of 2009.

David A. Brandon, Domino's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: "I'm putting this quarter in the "win" column for Domino's Pizza. I'm proud of my team and our accomplishment of emerging as a leader during tough times. Our franchisees are engaged and have embraced the expansion of our products and day parts. The predictability of our model continues to be a plus in an unpredictable landscape."

Brandon added, "Our international business continues to thrive despite the dampening effect of foreign exchange. We are driving positive sales at a robust rate...and we've done so for more than the past fifteen years. We are consistently opening new stores and new markets, driving future growth for Domino's Pizza."

Debt Repurchases

During the second quarter, the Company repurchased and retired $25.0 million of principal of its outstanding fixed rate senior notes; and approximately $68.3 million for the first two quarters of 2009, for a total purchase price of approximately $12.3 million and $34.6 million, respectively, including $0.2 million and $0.5 million of accrued interest for each of the periods. These activities resulted in pre-tax gains of approximately $12.9 million in the second quarter and $34.1 million in the first two quarters of 2009, which were recorded in "Other" in the Company's consolidated statements of income.

Subsequent to the second quarter of 2009, the Company repurchased and retired $20.0 million of additional principal of its outstanding fixed rate senior notes for a total purchase price of approximately $15.6 million, including $0.2 million of accrued interest, resulting in a pre-tax gain of approximately $4.6 million which will be recorded in the third quarter of 2009. The Company has classified the $20.0 million of outstanding fixed rate senior notes as a current liability in the consolidated balance sheet as of June 14, 2009.



    Stock Option Plan Changes

As previously announced, the Company's shareholders approved a stock option exchange program at the 2009 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, held on April 28, 2009, and the Company executed the program during the second quarter of 2009. The incremental value to the option holders created as a result of the modification will be recognized as additional compensation expense over the remaining service period. This amount has been calculated to be approximately $1.3 million (after-tax), of which approximately $0.6 million (after-tax) was recognized during the second quarter of 2009.

Separately and as previously announced, the Company's Board of Directors authorized management to amend existing stock option agreements to allow for accelerated vesting and extended exercise periods upon the retirement of option holders who have achieved specified service and age requirements. The amended terms of the relevant stock option agreements became effective in the second quarter of 2009. The incremental value to option holders created as a result of the modification will be recognized as additional compensation expense over the remaining service period. This amount has been calculated to be approximately $0.3 million (after-tax), of which approximately $0.2 million (after-tax) was recognized during the second quarter of 2009. The Company is required to accelerate previously unrecognized compensation expense that it would have been required to expense in future periods for these stock options. This resulted in the acceleration of approximately $2.1 million (after-tax) of compensation expense in the second quarter of 2009 for certain employees who elected to receive the aforementioned amendment and who will meet the specified service and age requirements prior to the original vesting date. The $2.1 million (after-tax) of compensation expense recognized in the second quarter of 2009 was not incremental expense, but merely an acceleration of expense that would have been recognized in future periods.

Items Affecting Comparability

The Company's reported financial results for the second quarter and first two quarters of 2009 are not comparable to the reported financial results for the prior year comparable periods. The table below presents certain items that affect comparability between our 2009 and 2008 financial results. Management believes that including such information is critical to the understanding of the Company's financial results for the second quarter and first two quarters of 2009 as compared to the same periods in 2008 (See the Comments on Regulation G section).

    Liquidity

    As of June 14, 2009, the Company had:

    --  approximately $1.65 billion in total debt,
    --  $61.7 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents,
    --  $21.3 million of borrowings under its $60.0 million variable funding
        note facility,
    --  $6.0 million of available borrowings under its variable funding note
        facility, and

    --  letters of credit issued under the variable funding note facility of
        $32.7 million.

Subsequent to the second quarter of 2009, Domino's Pizza LLC (DPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Letter of Credit Agreement (the L/C Agreement), pursuant to which the counterparty will issue, at DPL's request, up to $50.0 million of standby letters of credit for the account of DPL and its subsidiaries. Pursuant to the L/C Agreement, DPL will maintain a cash collateral account holding an amount equal to 105% of any outstanding letters of credit and pay to the counterparty quarterly commitment fees of 0.375% per annum of the unused portion of the commitment and quarterly letter of credit fees of 0.75% per annum of the undrawn face amount of any outstanding letters of credit. Subsequent to the second quarter of 2009, the counterparty issued $33.5 million of standby letters of credit and the Company restricted an additional $35.2 million of cash on its consolidated balance sheet as collateral for these outstanding letters of credit.

As a result of and concurrent with the L/C Agreement, the Company terminated substantially all of its pre-existing letters of credit which provided additional availability under its variable funding notes. Subsequent to the second quarter of 2009, the Company borrowed an additional $35.1 million on the variable funding notes and currently has no borrowings available on the $60.0 million facility.

The Company's cash borrowing rate for the second quarter of 2009 was 6.1%. The Company incurred $9.4 million in capital expenditures during the first two quarters of 2009 versus $7.0 million in the first two quarters of the prior year.

The Company's free cash flow, as reconciled below to cash flows from operations as determined under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $19.7 million in the first two quarters of 2009.

    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. Additionally, the Company has included metrics such as global retail sales and same store sales growth, which are commonly used in the quick-service restaurant industry and 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 periods discussed above. The most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is Diluted EPS. The Company's management 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 "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 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. 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 for working capital needs or to be used for repurchasing debt, making acquisitions, repurchasing shares or similar uses of cash.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. You can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as "believes," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "seeks," "approximately," "intends," "plans," "estimates," or "anticipates" or similar expressions that concern our strategy, plans or intentions. These forward-looking statements relating to our anticipated profitability, ability to service our indebtedness, operating performance, trends in our business and other descriptions of future events reflect management's expectations based upon currently available information and data. However, actual results are subject to future risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially include: our level of long-term and other indebtedness; the uncertainties relating to litigation; consumer preferences, spending patterns and demographic trends; the effectiveness of our advertising, operations and promotional initiatives; the strength of our brand in the markets in which we compete; our ability to retain key personnel; new product and concept developments by Domino's and other food-industry competitors; the ongoing profitability of our franchisees and the ability of Domino's and our franchisees to open new restaurants and keep existing restaurants in operation; changes in food prices, particularly cheese, labor, utilities, insurance, employee benefits and other operating costs; the impact that widespread illness or general health concerns may have on our business and the economy of the countries in which we operate; severe weather conditions and natural disasters; changes in our effective tax rate; changes in government legislation and regulations; adequacy of our insurance coverage; costs related to future financings; our ability and that of our franchisees to successfully operate in the current credit environment; changes in the level of consumer spending given the general economic conditions including interest rates, energy prices and weakening consumer confidence; availability of borrowings under our variable funding notes and changes in accounting policies. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations ("cautionary statement") are more fully described in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including under the section headed "Risk Factors" in our annual report on Form 10-K. We do not undertake to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
