  • Restaurant contribution* margin of 19.7% in both fiscal years;
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased to $72.0 million from $71.5 million in the fiscal year 2017; and
  • 25 system wide openings, including 13 company-operated and 12 franchised restaurants.

Adjusted net income, restaurant contribution, and adjusted EBITDA* are non-GAAP measures and defined below under “Key Financial Definitions”. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures accompanying this release.

John D. Cappasola, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Del Taco, commented, “We achieved our sixth consecutive year of system-wide comparable restaurant sales growth in 2018. This was led by strong franchise comparable restaurant sales growth across a diverse 13 state footprint that supports Del Taco’s brand portability, including 25 new system-wide openings across ten states during 2018 of which nearly half were franchised restaurants. Lastly, despite modest company comparable restaurant sales and meaningful wage and operating inflation, we demonstrated effective cost management and pricing strategies to post a strong annual restaurant contribution margin that remained near or above 20% in each of the last four years.”

Cappasola continued, “As we move into 2019, we remain focused on our mission to be the leader in the value oriented QSR+ segment. Our transaction driving initiatives are well underway as we enter 2019, led by our digital transformation including the new Del App which has now eclipsed 400,000 registered users and our expansion of Grubhub delivery to all company-operated restaurants. We recently enhanced our value platform with the launch of $4, $5 and $6 ‘Fresh Faves’ box meals to provide abundant value. Finally, during the second quarter we plan to use innovation to drive incremental occasions with the launch of the Beyond Taco and Beyond Avocado Taco, which leverages a proprietary new plant-based ground protein that tastes similar to our current ground beef.”

Cappasola concluded, “Earlier this year we began optimizing our restaurant portfolio to stimulate new restaurant growth and existing restaurant AUV’s by acquiring three high volume franchise restaurants and refranchising thirteen lower volume company restaurants, all in the greater LA area. We have also begun preparing to refranchise our non-core Western markets to new or existing franchisees with proven operational and development capabilities. We expect this refranchising to help shift our approximately 55% current company ownership to approximately 45% by the summer of 2020, positioning Del Taco for accelerated franchise growth and enabling a sharpened focus on company operations in core Western markets and strategic seed markets to support emerging market growth.”

Review of Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total revenue increased 7.3% to $157.3 million (including $4.1 million of franchise advertising contributions and $0.2 million of other franchise revenue required as part of the new revenue recognition rules adopted in the fiscal first quarter 2018 whereby the offsetting impact is an increase to expenses such that there is no impact on operating income and net income) compared to $146.5 million in the fiscal fourth quarter 2017. Excluding these revenue recognition impacts, total revenue increased 4.4%.

Comparable restaurant sales increased 1.9% system-wide, resulting in a 4.3% increase on a two-year basis. The Del Taco system has now generated comparable restaurant sales growth for 21 consecutive quarters. Company-operated comparable restaurant sales increased 1.0%, marking 26 consecutive quarters of comparable restaurant sales growth. Franchise comparable restaurant sales increased 3.2%, reflecting the strength of our system across a diverse geographic footprint.

Net income was $5.6 million, representing $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $35.2 million in the fiscal fourth quarter 2017, representing $0.89 per diluted share.

Adjusted net income* was $7.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $6.2 million in the fiscal fourth quarter 2017, or $0.16 per diluted share.

Restaurant contribution* was $29.8 million compared to $28.0 million in the fiscal fourth quarter 2017. As a percentage of Company restaurant sales, restaurant contribution margin increased 40 basis points year-over-year to 20.3%. The increase was the result of an approximately 40 basis point decrease in food and paper costs and an approximately 40 basis point decrease in labor and related expenses, offset by an approximately 30 basis point increase in occupancy and other operating expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA* increased to $23.6 million from $23.3 million in the fiscal fourth quarter 2017.

Restaurant Development

During the fiscal fourth quarter 2018, the Company opened seven company-operated and eight franchised restaurants for a total of fifteen system-wide openings.

During fiscal year 2018, the Company opened thirteen company-operated and twelve franchised restaurants for a total of twenty five system-wide openings. There were also a total of nine system-wide closures, consisting of six company-operated and three franchised restaurants.

Thus far in fiscal first quarter 2019, the Company has already opened four franchised restaurants and has six additional system restaurants under construction.

Repurchase Program for Common Stock and Warrants

During the fiscal fourth quarter 2018, the Company repurchased 765,209 shares of common stock at average price of $11.05 per share and repurchased 20,596 warrants at an average price per warrant of $1.93, for an aggregate of $8.5 million. At the end of fiscal year 2018, approximately $29.6 million remained under our $75 million repurchase authorization.

Thus far in fiscal first quarter 2019, the Company has already repurchased 198,780 shares of common stock at average price of $10.40 per share and repurchased 836,630 warrants at an average price per warrant of $1.78.

Restaurant Portfolio Optimization

As previously announced on January 14, 2019, the Company intends to optimize its restaurant portfolio to help stimulate growth in new restaurants and existing restaurant AUV’s. This includes the following actions and is expected to shift our approximately 55% current company ownership to approximately 45% by the summer of 2020.

  • The Company has purchased three high volume franchised restaurants in the LA area during the fiscal first quarter of 2019 which are expected to be immediately accretive to earnings.
  • The Company has refranchised thirteen lower volume company-operated restaurants in the LA area during the fiscal first quarter of 2019 to three separate and experienced Del Taco franchisees. These franchisees have each previously demonstrated their ability to improve performance at restaurants they acquired from other Del Taco franchisees.
  • The Company is also preparing to refranchise non-core Western markets to new or existing franchisees with proven operational and development capabilities who commit to additional development in these and/or other markets. Because the exact timing of these refranchising transactions has not yet been determined, they are not embedded within our fiscal year 2019 guidance referenced below.

Fiscal Year 2019 Guidance

The Company is providing the following guidance for the 52-week fiscal year 2019 ending December 31, 2019. This guidance incorporates the acquisition of three high volume restaurants and refranchise of thirteen lower volume restaurants in the LA area completed during the first quarter of 2019, and does not include any future refranchising transactions.

  • System-wide comparable restaurant sales growth of low-single digits;
  • Total revenue between $517 million and $527 million;
  • Company restaurant sales between $481 million and $491 million;
  • Restaurant contribution* margin between 18.1% and 18.6%, which includes approximately 70 basis points of unfavorable impact from the adoption of the new lease accounting standard;
  • General and administrative expenses between approximately 8.7% and 9.0% of total revenue;
  • Interest expense between approximately $7.2 million and $7.6 million;
  • Effective tax rate of approximately 26.5% to 27.5%;
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.47 to $0.52;
  • Adjusted EBITDA* is now expected between $66.5 million and $69.0 million compared to the $70.0 million to $72.5 million range issued previously, with the variance entirely related to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard;
  • At least 25 gross system-wide new unit openings skewing toward franchised restaurants and an estimated 1% system-wide closure rate; and
  • Net capital expenditures between $42 million to $47 million.

Adjusted net income, restaurant contribution, and adjusted EBITDA* are non-GAAP measures and defined below under “Key Financial Definitions”.

We have not reconciled guidance for Adjusted Net Income or Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP financial measure because we do not provide guidance for the various reconciling items. We are unable to provide guidance for these reconciling items because we cannot determine their probable significance, as certain items are outside of our control and cannot be reasonably predicted since these items could vary significantly from period to period. Accordingly, a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP financial measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

Cappasola, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer; and Steven L. Brake, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Key Financial Definitions

Comparable restaurant sales growth reflects the change in year-over-year sales for the comparable company, franchise and total system restaurant base. Restaurants are included in the comparable store base in the accounting period following its 18th full month of operations and excludes restaurant closures.

Restaurant contribution* is defined as company restaurant sales less restaurant operating expenses, which are food and paper costs, labor and related expenses and occupancy and other operating expenses. Restaurant contribution margin is defined as restaurant contribution as a percentage of company restaurant sales. Restaurant contribution and restaurant contribution marginare neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. Restaurant contribution and restaurant contribution margin are supplemental measures of operating performance of restaurants and the calculations thereof may not be comparable to those reported by other companies. Restaurant contribution and restaurant contribution margin have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Management believes that restaurant contribution and restaurant contribution margin are important tools for investors because they are widely-used metrics within the restaurant industry to evaluate restaurant-level productivity, efficiency and performance. Management uses restaurant contribution and restaurant contribution margin as key performance indicators to evaluate the profitability of incremental sales at Del Taco restaurants, to evaluate restaurant performance across periods and to evaluate restaurant financial performance compared with competitors.

Adjusted EBITDA* is defined as net income/loss prior to interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization, as adjusted to add back certain charges, such as stock-based compensation expense and transaction-related costs, as these expenses are not considered an indicator of ongoing company performance. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or net income/loss as a measure of operating performance or cash flows or as measures of liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily calculated the same way by different companies and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. We believe Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. These potential differences may be caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense). We also present Adjusted EBITDA because (i) we believe this measure is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry and (ii) we use Adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark to compare performance to that of competitors.

Adjusted net income* represents company net income before impairment of long-lived assets, restaurant closure charges, and other income related to the write-off of unfavorable lease liabilities, net of tax, as well as the re-measurement of net deferred tax liability to new corporate tax rate in fiscal 2017. Adjusted diluted net income per share* represents company diluted net income per share before impairment of long-lived assets, restaurant closure charges, and other income related to the write-off of unfavorable lease liabilities, net of tax, as well as the re-measurement of net deferred tax liability to new corporate tax rate in fiscal 2017.
