Jack in the Box Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Earnings


Jack in the Box Inc. (NASDAQ: JACK) announced financial results for the Jack in the Box segment in the second quarter, ended April 17, 2022, as well as the Del Taco segment on both a pro-forma fiscal quarter, and partial quarter basis following the acquisition which was completed on March 8, 2022.

"While challenged by continued inflationary pressure facing our industry, we are pleased to have delivered strong same-store sales on a two-year basis. This performance has allowed our franchisees, operators and corporate team members to provide our guests with innovative and craveable food they have come to expect from JACK," said Darin Harris, Jack in the Box Chief Executive Officer. "I am also very excited to welcome Del Taco to the Jack in the Box family, and to show how the combination of these two challenger brands will enable faster and more efficient growth in the years to come."

Jack in the Box Performance

Systemwide sales for the second quarter increased 0.1% driven by growth in average restaurant volumes, offset by a slight decline in the number of restaurants.

System same-store sales decreased 0.8% in the second quarter, comprised of Company-operated same-store sales growth of 1.7%, with increases in average check partially offset by decreases in traffic, and a decline in franchise same-store sales of 1.1%, with decreases in traffic partially offset by increases in average check. The burger and sides categories performed well, assisting sales performance in the quarter against challenging prior year overlaps fueled by stimulus, and headwinds created by the final weeks of the Omicron surge. During the quarter, system same-store sales declined versus systemwide sales due to a one-week shift affecting the calculation of same-store sales related to the 53rd week in 2021. This one-week shift resulted in a negative impact on same-store sales, due to lapping more of the stimulus benefit in its calculation as compared to the fiscal quarter comparison.

As of the second quarter, and since the launch of the development program in mid-2021, the Company currently has 54 signed agreements for a total of 218 restaurants. Under these agreements, 12 restaurants have opened, leaving 206 remaining for future development. Jack in the Box had a second quarter net restaurant decline of one restaurant, as the Company opened five locations and closed six. The six restaurant closures included two Company-operated restaurants, two franchise locations with early terminations and two franchise locations with agreement expirations, bringing the total Jack in the Box restaurant count to 2,207 at the end of the second quarter.

Restaurant-Level Margin(3), a non-GAAP measure, was 15.0%, a decline from a year ago driven by increases in food and packaging costs; wage inflation of 14.2%; and increases in utilities and maintenance and repair costs, partially offset by lower incentive-based compensation and menu price increases. Commodity costs increased in the quarter by approximately 16.4%, primarily due to increases in beef, pork, sauces and oil. When removing our temporary Evolving Markets (Oregon, Kansas City, Oklahoma City and Nashville), Restaurant-Level Margin was 18.3% for the quarter.

Franchise-Level Margin(3), a non-GAAP measure, was 39.4%, driven by reduced operating hours, lower early termination penalties, and deferrals in connection with a franchisee currently in bankruptcy proceedings. Franchise-Level Margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 42.0%, and when removing the $4.1 million unfavorable impact as a result of this St. Louis-area franchisee's pre-pandemic challenges and 2021 chapter 11 bankruptcy event, franchise-level margin for the second quarter 2022 would have been 41.9%.

Del Taco Performance

Systemwide sales for the pro-forma fiscal second quarter(1) increased 2.9% driven by positive results in both franchise and company-operated same-store sales. Same-store sales increased 2.5% in the pro-forma fiscal second quarter(1), comprised of franchise same-store sales growth of 3.4% and Company-operated same-store sales growth of 1.6%. Sales performance was boosted by the 20 Under $2 value platform and strong LTO performance, higher average ticket and menu price, and offset by menu mix and transaction trends. Del Taco had a second quarter net restaurant decrease of one restaurant, comprised of one opening and two closures.

Restaurant-Level Margin(2), a non-GAAP measure, was 17.8% while Franchise-Level Margin(2), a non-GAAP measure, was 41.7%.

Company-Wide Performance

Second quarter diluted earnings per share was $0.37. Operating Earnings Per Share (4), a non-GAAP measure, was $1.16 in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 compared with $1.40 in the prior year quarter. Total revenues increased 25.3% to $322.3 million, compared to $257.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Net earnings decreased to $7.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared with $35.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA(5), a non-GAAP measure, was $64.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 compared with $75.8 million for the prior year quarter.

SG&A expense for the second quarter, which now includes Del Taco, was $28.5 million, an increase of $9.6 million compared to the prior year quarter, driven primarily by; mark-to-market changes in the cash surrender value of company owned life insurance ("COLI") policies, net of changes in our deferred compensation obligation supported by these policies, resulting in a year-over-year increase of $3.7 million, an increase in advertising expense of $2.7 million, an increase of $4.3 million in other G&A from the acquisition of Del Taco and an increase in insurance of $1.0 million; partially offset by a decrease in incentive compensation.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 was 33.3% compared to 27.3% in fiscal year 2021. The major components of the year-over-year increase in tax rate, the impacts of which were exacerbated by a decrease in earnings before income taxes, were an absence of excess tax benefit on share-based compensation in the current year, non-deductible COLI losses in the current year as opposed to non-taxable gains in the prior year, and an increase in non-deductible expenses, partially offset by a favorable adjustment to state taxes in the current year as opposed to an unfavorable adjustment in the prior year.

(1) Del Taco systemwide sales, same-store sales, unit growth performance and guidance are based on the time period of Jack in the Box's full fiscal Q2 2022 calendar, January 24 through April 17. We believe Del Taco's information on this time period is useful to investors as they have a direct effect on the company's profitability.
(2) All other disclosed Del Taco results, aside from same-store sales and unit growth, are based on a partial quarter time period, March 8 through April 17.
(3) Restaurant-Level Margin and Franchise-Level Margin are non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures are reconciled to earnings from operations, the most comparable GAAP measure, in the attachment to this release. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results."

(4) Operating Earnings Per Share represents diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis of $0.37 excluding acquisition, integration, and restructuring costs of $0.45; COLI losses (gains), net of $0.11; debt write-off costs of $0.26; refranchising gains of ($0.03); and the excess tax benefit or tax deficiency from share-based compensation arrangements. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results." Operating earnings per share may not add due to rounding.

(5) Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings on a GAAP basis excluding income taxes, interest expense, net, gains or losses on the sale of company-operated restaurants, other operating expenses (income), net, depreciation and amortization, the amortization of favorable and unfavorable leases and subleases, net and the amortization of franchise tenant improvement allowances and incentives. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measurements to GAAP Results."

Capital Allocation

On November 19, 2021, the Board of Directors authorized a $200.0 million stock buy-back program that expires on November 20, 2023. The Company did not repurchase any shares in the second quarter of 2022, but plans to resume share buybacks during the second half of 2022. On May 13, 2022, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.44 per common share, to be paid on June 22, 2022, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on June 7, 2022.

The Company is assessing optimal capital sources, finalizing sale leasebacks and refranchising plans, and continually reviewing its balance sheet for any undervalued assets, all in an effort to accelerate the return of cash to shareholders. However, note that not all proceeds from sale leasebacks become unrestricted cash, due to the Company's securitization structure. Jack in the Box remains committed to its primary goal of investing in growth, while being disciplined in our commitment to return capital to shareholders.

Franchised restaurant sales represent sales at franchised restaurants and are revenues of our franchisees. Systemwide sales include company and franchised restaurant sales. We do not record franchised sales as revenues; however, our royalty revenues, marketing fees and percentage rent revenues are calculated based on a percentage of franchised sales. We believe franchised and systemwide restaurant sales information is useful to investors as they have a direct effect on the company's profitability.

JACK IN THE BOX INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASUREMENTS TO GAAP RESULTS
(Unaudited)

To supplement the condensed consolidated financial statements, which are presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses the following non-GAAP measures: Operating Earnings Per Share, Adjusted EBITDA, Restaurant-Level Margin and Franchise-Level Margin. Management believes that these measurements, when viewed with the company's results of operations in accordance with GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations in the tables below, provide useful information about operating performance and period-over-period changes, and provide additional information that is useful for evaluating the operating performance of the company's core business without regard to potential distortions.

Operating Earnings Per Share

Operating Earnings Per Share represents diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis excluding acquisition, integration, and restructuring costs; COLI losses (gains), net; gains on the sale of company-operated restaurants; and the excess tax benefit or tax deficiency from share-based compensation arrangements. Operating Earnings Per Share should be considered as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, analysis of results as reported under U.S. GAAP or other similarly titled measures of other companies. Management believes Operating Earnings Per Share provides investors with a meaningful supplement of the company's operating performance and period-over-period changes without regard to potential distortions.

Below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP Operating Earnings Per Share to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, diluted earnings per share. Figures may not add due to rounding.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, we exclude gains and losses driven by mark-to-market changes in the cash surrender value of COLI policies, net of a deferred compensation obligation supported by these policies. The prior period has been recast to conform to the current year presentation.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings on a GAAP basis excluding income taxes, interest expense, net, gains or losses on the sale of company-operated restaurants, other operating expenses (income), net, depreciation and amortization, and the amortization of franchise tenant improvement allowances and other. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, analysis of results as reported under U.S. GAAP or other similarly titled measures of other companies. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting the company's ongoing cash earnings, from which capital investments are made and debt is serviced.

Restaurant-Level Margin

Restaurant-Level Margin is defined as company restaurant sales less restaurant operating costs (food and packaging, labor, and occupancy costs) and is neither required by, nor presented in accordance with GAAP. Restaurant-Level Margin excludes revenues and expenses of our franchise operations and certain costs, such as selling, general, and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, other operating expenses (income), net, gains or losses on the sale of company-operated restaurants, and other costs that are considered normal operating costs. As such, Restaurant-Level Margin is not indicative of the overall results of the company and does not accrue directly to the benefit of shareholders because of the exclusion of corporate-level expenses. Restaurant-Level Margin should be considered as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, analysis of results as reported under GAAP or other similarly titled measures of other companies. The company is presenting Restaurant-Level Margin because it believes that it provides a meaningful supplement to net earnings of the company's core business operating results, as well as a comparison to those of other similar companies. Management utilizes Restaurant-Level Margin as a key performance indicator to evaluate the profitability of company-operated restaurants.
