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.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, 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 its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
