Luby's Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

~ Store Level Profit Margin Improved to 15.3% in Q4-2012 from 13.4% in Q4-2011 and Grew to 15.4% in Fiscal 2012 from 12.7% in Fiscal 2011

HOUSTON, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Luby's, Inc. (NYSE: LUB) ("Luby's") today announced its unaudited financial results for its sixteen-week fourth quarter fiscal 2012, and for its fifty-two week fiscal year, which ended on August 29, 2012.  Fiscal 2011 results included an extra week in comparison to fiscal 2012. The fourth quarter fiscal 2011 had seventeen weeks and the fiscal year 2011 had fifty-three weeks.

Chris Pappas, President and CEO, remarked, "During fiscal 2012, our dedication to improving our guest experience, to enhancing each aspect of our restaurant operations, and to launching innovative marketing programs allowed us to generate a 2012 fiscal store level profit margin of 15.4%, up 270 basis points over last fiscal year's 12.7%.  These results demonstrate that we are well on track to reach our target store level profit range of 17% to 19%. 

"We would like to thank our talented and experienced team for their hard work and their dedication to always putting our guests first.  As we begin our fiscal 2013, we have tremendous opportunities to continue to refine our processes and grow our business. We are positioned to continue building on the successes we achieved in fiscal 2012 due to our dedicated team, a culture that focuses on the customer, a strong financial position, and highly-regarded value brands."

2012 Fourth Fiscal Quarter Review

  • Store level profit, defined as restaurant sales less food costs, payroll and related costs, and other operating expenses, rose to $15.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, or 15.3% of restaurant sales.  During the seventeen-week fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, store level profit was $14.1 million, or 13.4% of restaurant sales. On a comparable sixteen-week basis, store level profit was $13.2 million in last year's fourth quarter. Store level profit as a percentage of restaurant sales rose due to positive same store sales growth and effective management in each of our cost line items of food, payroll and other costs.
  • Same store sales rose 2.4%.  Same store sales results include the 150 restaurants (93 Luby's Cafeterias and 57 Fuddruckers and Koo Koo Roo locations) that have been open for 18 consecutive accounting periods. At Luby's Cafeterias, average spend per person increased 5.7% and customer traffic declined 2.9%, due in part to a shift in menu offerings. At Fuddruckers, average spend per customer increased 1.4% and customer traffic grew 1.9%. Same store sales declined at the three Koo Koo Roo locations, which reduced total same store sales by approximately 30 basis points. Fuddruckers franchise units, averaging 125 units during the quarter, were down 0.3% in sales.

Note: Luby's begins including a restaurant's sales results into the same-store sales calculation once that restaurant has been open for 18 consecutive accounting periods. Beginning in the 2012 third fiscal quarter, Fuddruckers and Koo Koo Roo locations that we have operated for 18 consecutive accounting periods have been included in the same store sales results.

  • Restaurant sales were $100.0 million.  During the same quarter last year, restaurant sales were $105.3 million, for seventeen weeks, and $99.1 million for the comparable sixteen weeks.  Restaurant sales rose on a comparable sixteen-week basis due to growth in same store sales and the sales contribution from two new restaurants. These additional restaurant sales were partially offset by the closure of four stores over the prior year. The 93 Luby's Cafeterias generated $68.9 million in restaurant sales, and the 61 company-operated Fuddruckers and Koo Koo Roo locations produced $31.1 million in restaurant sales.

  • Total sales were $107.2 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012. Total sales in last year's fourth fiscal quarter were $113.5 million on a seventeen-week basis and $106.9 million on a comparable sixteen-week basis.
  • Franchise revenue declined to $2.4 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to $2.5 million in the same quarter last year.   On a comparable sixteen-week basis, franchise revenue increased 3.0%
  • Revenue from Culinary Contract Services declined to $4.6 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to $5.6 million in the same fiscal quarter last year and $5.3 million on a comparable 16-week basis. We continue to refine our operating model by concentrating on operating locations that generate sufficient returns. Although our Culinary Contract Services ended the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 operating 18 facilities, down from 21 facilities at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, we now operate with a stronger mix of clients. We believe we are better positioned now to grow our sales and improve operating margins in this business line. 
  • In the fourth quarter fiscal 2012, we generated income from continuing operations of $3.1 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to $2.9 million in the same quarter last year, or $0.10 per share. Results in each of fiscal 2012 and 2011 included various special items as outlined in the chart below. Excluding special items, fourth quarter fiscal 2012 income from continuing operations was $1.6 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $1.5 million, or $0.05 per share in the fourth quarter fiscal 2011.

Pappas added, "During fiscal 2012, we opened two company-owned Fuddruckers, one in Houston and one in San Antonio. We followed this by opening two more restaurants, one Luby's and one Fuddruckers, at a single location outside of Houston.  These two restaurants, the first time we developed a Luby's and Fuddruckers side-by-side, opened on the first day of fiscal 2013. Our new locations are coming out of the gates strongly, proving that there are tremendous opportunities to expand both of our core restaurant brands. Whether in the full-size 6500+ square foot location or in a 2,500 square foot stand-alone building, the Fuddruckers concept has the flexibility to fit in numerous high traffic locations.  

"During fiscal 2012, as planned, five new Fuddruckers franchises began serving the Worlds' Greatest Hamburgers® and our first joint venture location debuted in Villahermosa, Mexico.  Moving forward, we hope to further expand our franchise network.

"We invested approximately $5.7 million in remodeling our existing locations to remain competitive, relevant and attractive to our customer base. In fiscal 2012, we completed 12 cafeteria remodels, of which eight were extensive as well as 17 limited remodels at Fuddruckers. In fiscal 2013, we plan to remodel approximately 16 cafeterias and 16 Fuddruckers."

"In fiscal 2013, we will continue to find better ways to serve our guests and to train our staff.  We believe our made from scratch cooking, attractive locations and dedicated staff will continue to attract customers, and our local market initiatives will keep them coming back more frequently," concluded Pappas.

Operating Expense Review

Due to the extra week in last year's fourth fiscal quarter, our operating expense comparison discussions will center on percent to sales results since that is a more comparable year-over-year measure.

Food costs as a percentage of restaurant sales improved to 27.8% in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 from 28.4% in the comparable quarter last year, due to more effective cost management practices resulting, in part, from the restaurant back office system we implemented last year, as well as the benefit of investing in enhanced training for our restaurant managers and crews. Food costs declined approximately $2.1 million, to $27.8 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to the same fiscal quarter last year, which included an extra week.  During the fourth quarter fiscal 2012, we did not experience any significant year-over-year food cost inflation in our basket of core food commodity purchases. 

In the fourth quarter fiscal 2012, payroll and related costs as a percentage of restaurant sales improved to 34.0% from 34.8% in last year's fourth fiscal quarter, as crew labor costs declined due to better labor scheduling processes adopted during the year, including the ability to react more quickly to changes in customer traffic. Payroll and related costs declined approximately $2.6 million, to $34.0 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to the same fiscal quarter last year, which included an extra week. 

Other operating expenses include restaurant-related expenses for utilities, repairs and maintenance, advertising, insurance, supplies, services, and occupancy costs. As a percentage of restaurant sales, other operating expenses improved to 23.0% compared to 23.5% in the same quarter last year; significant reductions in utilities, and other reductions in restaurant supplies, services, and repairs and maintenance were partially offset by increases in marketing and advertising and insurance costs. Other operating expenses in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 decreased approximately $1.7 million, to $23.0 million, compared to the same quarter last year, which included an additional week. 

Depreciation and amortization expense increased $0.2 million to $5.4 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to the same quarter last year due to the investments made in new locations as well as the capital we have used for remodeling existing locations.

General and administrative expenses rose approximately $0.4 million to $9.9 million in the fourth quarter fiscal 2012 compared to the same quarter last year due to an increase in salaries and benefits. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses rose to 9.3%, versus 8.4% in the same quarter last year.

Capital Expenditures and Balance Sheet

At the end of the fourth fiscal quarter 2012, we had $1.2 million in cash, $172.7 million in shareholders' equity and $36.1 million available under our credit facility.  During the 2012 fiscal year, we generated $29.3 million in cash from operating activities and spent $25.8 million on capital expenditures.  In fiscal 2012, we reduced our balance under our credit facility by $8.5 million and ended the fiscal year with a $13.0 million outstanding debt balance.

In fiscal 2012, our capital expenditures totaled $25.8 million, and included investments of $9.0 million on new unit development, $5.7 million on remodeling of existing restaurants, and $8.1 million in recurring maintenance capital spend.  The remainder of our capital spend included properties that we acquired and leased to a franchisee operating Fuddruckers restaurants and included our capital spend on infrastructure projects.

We expect to invest approximately $22 million to $27 million in capital projects during fiscal 2013. The capital will be dedicated to our projected new unit growth, the remodeling of existing restaurants, and the on-going maintenance of our operations.  Additional capital spend above this level may occur to purchase land and begin construction of restaurants that will open subsequent to fiscal year 2013.

Fiscal Year-to-Date Review

  • Income from continuing operations grew to $7.6 million in fiscal year 2012, compared to $2.6 million in fiscal year 2011.  Results in each of fiscal 2012 and 2011 included various special items as outlined in the chart below.

Outlook

As announced previously, Luby's expects that its same store sales for its fiscal 2013 will increase between 0.5% and 1.5% and that its restaurant sales will be in the range of $332 million to $335 million. Earnings per diluted share are anticipated to grow to $0.27 to $0.30 in fiscal 2013, due to increased sales and continued margin expansion. This outlook is sensitive to changes in economic conditions and the effects of other risks and uncertainties described in the Company's annual and quarterly reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q filed with the Securities Exchange Commission.

Luby's will continue to expand its geographic footprint and anticipates opening one to two cafeterias in 2013. It also expects to open three to five Fuddruckers.

Profitability is contingent on same store sales growth as well as effective management of our expenses.  While encouraged that gasoline prices at the beginning of the summer were not as high as some predicted, we continue to remain cautious about the general economic environment and its impact on customer traffic.

Although store level profit, defined as restaurant sales less food cost less, payroll and related costs, and other operating costs is a non-GAAP measure, we believe its presentation is useful because it explicitly shows the results of our most significant reportable segment.   The following table reconciles between store level profit, a non-GAAP measure to income from continuing operations, a GAAP measure:

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
