 Domino’s Pizza? Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results
   Tuesday, July 25, 2017 7:30:00 AM ET

Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (DPZ ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, today announced results for the second quarter of 2017, comprised of strong growth in same store sales, global store counts and earnings per share. Domestic same store sales grew 9.5% during the quarter versus the year-ago period, which represents the 25th consecutive quarter of positive sales momentum in the Company’s domestic business. International same store sales grew 2.6% during the quarter, marking the 94th consecutive quarter of positive international same store sales growth. The Company had global net store growth of 217 stores in the quarter, comprised of 39 net new domestic stores and 178 net new stores internationally. The Company has added 1,281 net new stores over the trailing four quarters.

Diluted EPS was $1.32 for the second quarter, which was up 34.7% over the Company’s diluted EPS in the prior year quarter. This increase resulted from solid operational results as well as a lower effective tax rate.

During the quarter, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a 46-cent per share quarterly dividend for shareholders of record as of June 15, 2017, which was paid on June 30, 2017.

"It was another outstanding quarter for our domestic business, as brand momentum, strong execution and emphasis on getting better each day continued to drive what we do," said J. Patrick Doyle, Domino’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "While international same store sales growth was slightly under our expectations, we remain very confident in our continued ability to generate best-in-class growth, and are encouraged by the strong store growth we are seeing from our international franchisees."

"As a work-in-progress brand, we will always remain focused on areas we can improve - but I am extremely pleased that our steady strategy, solid fundamentals and strong alignment with franchisees and operators had us well positioned to sustain success and win."

  *In the first quarter of 2017, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (ASU 2016-09), which requires the Company to record excess tax benefits from equity-based compensation as a reduction of the provision for income taxes in the income statement, whereas they were previously recognized in equity. See the "Adoption of New Accounting Guidance" section below for additional information.

-- Revenues were up 14.8% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, due primarily to higher supply chain revenues from increased volumes. Higher same store sales and store count growth in both our domestic and international markets also contributed to the increase in revenues.

-- Net Income increased 33.5% for the second quarter versus the prior year period, primarily driven by an increase in same store sales growth and store count as well as higher supply chain volumes and lower food costs. The adoption of the new equity-based compensation accounting standard also positively impacted net income. These increases were partially offset by higher general and administrative expenses, primarily from investments in technological initiatives, as well as the negative impact of foreign currency exchange rates.

-- Diluted EPS was $1.32 for the second quarter versus $0.98 in the prior year quarter. This represents a 34-cent or 34.7% increase over the prior year quarter. This increase was driven by the increase in net income, as well as lower diluted share count, primarily as a result of the share repurchases made during the trailing four quarters.

The table below outlines certain statistical measures utilized by the Company to analyze its performance. Refer to the Comments on Regulation G section on page three for additional details.

2017 Recapitalization On July 24, 2017, the Company completed its recapitalization with the receipt of $1.9 billion of gross proceeds. The Company borrowed $1.6 billion of fixed rate senior secured notes and $300.0 million of floating rate senior secured notes and entered into a new $175.0 million variable funding note facility, which replaced its previous $125.0 million variable funding note facility.

The Company will use a portion of the proceeds from the recapitalization to repay the remaining $910.5 million in outstanding principal and interest under its 2012 fixed rate notes on July 27, 2017. The proceeds will also be used to pay transaction-related fees and expenses in connection with the 2017 recapitalization and to pre-fund a portion of the principal and interest payable on the 2017 notes. The Company will use the remaining proceeds for general corporate purposes. For further details, refer to the Company’s separate refinancing press release and the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 18, 2017.

Adoption of New Accounting Guidance The Company adopted ASU 2016-09 in the first quarter of 2017. This standard addresses the accounting for income taxes and forfeitures and the cash flow presentation of share-based compensation. The adoption resulted in a $10.4 million decrease in our second quarter 2017 provision for income taxes, or an 11.8 percentage point decrease in our second quarter 2017 effective tax rate, due to the recognition of excess tax benefits for options exercised and the vesting of equity awards. This item positively impacted our diluted EPS by approximately 21 cents in the second quarter of 2017. Refer to the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 18, 2017 for additional detailed information regarding the impact of the adoption of ASU 2016-09.

Conference Call Information The Company will file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q this morning. As previously announced, Domino’s Pizza, Inc. will hold a conference call today at 10 a.m. (Eastern) to review its second quarter 2017 financial results.

The call will also be webcast at The webcast will also be archived for one year on

Share Repurchases The Company did not repurchase any shares under its open market share repurchase program during the second quarter of 2017. As of June 18, 2017, the Company had a total remaining authorized amount for share repurchases of $136.4 million.

Liquidity As of June 18, 2017, the Company had approximately:

-- $52.2 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents;

-- $2.18 billion in total debt; and

-- $79.3 million of available borrowings under its $125.0 million variable funding notes, net of letters of credit issued of $45.7 million. The Company has collateralized all of its letters of credit with restricted cash, and has the ability to access this cash with minimal notice.

The Company invested $25.2 million in capital expenditures during the two fiscal quarters of 2017, versus $25.0 million in the two fiscal quarters of 2016. Free cash flow, as reconciled below to cash flows from operations as determined under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was approximately $89.9 million in the two fiscal quarters of 2017.

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. The Company has also included metrics such as global retail sales growth and same store sales growth, which are commonly used statistical measures in the quick-service restaurant industry that are important to understanding Company performance.

The Company uses "Global retail sales" to refer to total worldwide retail sales at Company-owned and franchise stores. The Company believes global retail sales information is useful in analyzing revenues because franchisees pay royalties that are based on a percentage of franchise retail sales. The Company reviews comparable industry global retail sales information to assess business trends and to track the growth of the Domino’s Pizza? brand. In addition, supply chain revenues are directly impacted by changes in 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," which is 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 excluding foreign currency impacts, which reflect changes in international local currency sales.

The Company uses "Free cash flow," which is calculated as cash flows from operations less capital expenditures, both as reported under GAAP. The Company 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 flow is available for working capital needs or to be used for repurchasing debt, making acquisitions, repurchasing common stock, paying dividends or other similar uses of cash.
