Burger King Worldwide Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Results

MIAMI - February 13, 2014 - Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (BKW) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

BKW Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Schwartz commented, "2013 was an important year for Burger King Worldwide as we grew our brand presence around the globe and made significant progress towards achieving our long-term strategic goals.  We completed our global refranchising initiative, fundamentally transforming our business model and putting restaurant operations into the hands of our experienced franchisees.  In North America, our focus on launching fewer, more impactful products helped drive improved sales trends as the year progressed.  We grew comparable sales across all three international regions, opened 670 net new restaurants globally, and formed joint ventures in France and India to lay the foundation for continued expansion.  We believe that we have the right team in place to capitalize on this success in 2014 and generate long-term value for franchisees and shareholders."

System-wide sales grew 5.7% in the fourth quarter, driven by comparable sales growth across all four regions and strong new unit growth. We opened 670 net new restaurants in 2013, representing a 38.1% year-over-year increase.  

Fourth quarter total reported revenues of $265.2 million declined (34.4%) from the prior year primarily due to the net refranchising of 360 company-owned restaurants in 2013.  On an organic basis, excluding the impact of these global refranchising transactions and currency movements, revenue increased 5.2% year-over-year due to net restaurant growth and global comparable sales growth.  

Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $182.1 million grew 14.3% from the prior year on an organic basis, excluding the impact of refranchising transactions and currency movements, driven by double-digit EBITDA growth in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa ("EMEA"), Latin America and the Caribbean ("LAC"), and Asia Pacific ("APAC").  For the full year 2013, Adjusted EBITDA was $665.6 million, a 10.0% organic increase from 2012.  

Fourth quarter Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 5.0% and 4.4%, respectively, compared to the prior year, due to an increase in Adjusted EBITDA partially offset by increased share-based compensation expense and increased income tax expense.  For the full year 2013, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS grew 23.6% and 22.4%, respectively, compared to the prior year.

Operational and Segment Highlights

Despite a strong prior year comparison, U.S. and Canada delivered positive comparable sales growth in the fourth quarter.  Comparable sales growth has improved sequentially every quarter of 2013 due to a well-balanced promotional mix and our commitment to launching fewer, more impactful products.  During Q4, the introduction of the BIG KING(TM) sandwich and the first full quarter of SATISFRIES(TM), a first of its kind better-for-you French fry, helped increase sales.  In addition, we added the BBQ Rib Sandwich to help drive incremental traffic in the value tier.  As part of our Four Pillar strategy of Menu, Marketing Communications, Image, and Operations, we delivered considerable progress on our reimaging initiative, completing approximately 600 remodels in 2013.  Approximately 30% of the U.S. & Canada system is now on the modern image, up from 19% in 2012.

EMEA grew comparable sales by 3.3% in the fourth quarter, representing the twelfth consecutive quarter of comparable sales growth in the region.  Germany continued to perform well due to a strong balance between premium limited time offerings ("LTOs"), such as the MERRY CHEESEMAS® seasonal promotion, and value platforms, such as "Trial Weeks".  In Spain, the EUROKING(TM) platform helped us continue our strong performance in a competitive market.  EMEA system-wide sales growth of 11.7% is partly attributable to 329 net new restaurant openings in 2013, a 37.7% increase from the prior year.

LAC delivered comparable sales growth of 1.8% in the fourth quarter, primarily driven by strong performance in Brazil.  In Brazil, the X-WHOPPER® premium LTO and the roll-out of the BK® Rodeo Jr. sandwich were effective at generating sales growth.  LAC system-wide sales growth of 17.3% includes the impact of 160 net new restaurant openings in 2013.

APAC generated comparable sales growth of 6.2% in the fourth quarter, driven by continued strength in Australia and South Korea, where new premium offerings complemented the Hero and WOW value platforms.  China continued its positive momentum due to premium LTOs and a new afternoon snacking value menu that is performing well.  APAC system-wide sales growth of 11.3% was partly driven by 221 net new restaurant openings in 2013, more than twice the number of net new restaurants we opened in the region in 2012.

As part of the BKW`s international expansion strategy, the company recently announced the formation of new joint ventures in France and India.  We believe that we have the right operating and financial partners to build the BURGER KING® brand and accelerate growth in both of these attractive markets.

Cash and Liquidity

As of year-end, total debt was $3.0 billion and net debt was $2.3 billion.  The net debt to trailing twelve month ("TTM") Adjusted EBITDA ratio declined (0.4x) from the prior year due to a $240 million increase in our cash balance.

On February 12, 2014, the company`s Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.07 per share for the first quarter of 2014.  The dividend is payable on March 12, 2014, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 26, 2014.  Future dividends will be determined at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

Investor Conference Call

The company will host an investor conference call and webcast at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time, Thursday, February 13, 2014, to review financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.  The earnings call will be broadcast live via the company`s investor relations website at http://investor.bk.com and a replay will be available for 30 days following the release.  The dial-in number is (877) 317-6776 for U.S. callers and (412) 317-6776 for international callers.

Key Business Metrics

We evaluate our restaurants and assess our business based on the following operating metrics.

System sales growth refers to the change in sales at all company-owned and franchise restaurants in one period from the same period in the prior year. Comparable sales growth refers to the change in restaurant sales in one period from the same prior year period for restaurants that have been open for thirteen months or longer.  Comparable sales and sales growth are measured on a constant currency basis, which means that results exclude the effect of foreign currency translation and are calculated by translating prior year results at current year exchange rates. We analyze key operating metrics on a constant currency basis as this helps identify underlying business trends, without distortion from the effects of currency movements ("FX Impact").

Franchise sales represent sales at all franchise restaurants and are revenues to our franchisees. We do not record franchise sales as revenues; however, our franchise revenues include royalties based on a percentage of franchise sales. Net refranchisings refer to sales of company-owned restaurants to franchisees, net of acquisitions of franchise restaurants by us.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") basis, the Company reports the following non-GAAP financial measures:  EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, net debt, TTM Adjusted EBITDA, net debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio, Organic revenue growth and Organic Adjusted EBITDA growth.

EBITDA is defined as earnings (net income or loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and loss on early extinguishment of debt and is used by management to measure operating performance of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding the impact of share-based compensation and non-cash incentive expense, other operating (income) expenses, net, and all other specifically identified costs associated with non-recurring projects, including global portfolio realignment project costs and Business Combination Agreement expenses. Share-based compensation and non-cash incentive compensation expense for the 2012 periods have been adjusted to be comparable to the 2013 presentation to reflect the portion of annual non-cash incentive compensation that eligible employees elected to receive as common equity in lieu of their 2012 cash bonus.  Adjusted EBITDA is used by management to measure operating performance of the business, excluding specifically identified items that management believes do not directly reflect our core operations, and represents our measure of segment income.

Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income excluding the impact of those same items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income by the number of diluted shares of the Company during the reporting period. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are used by management to evaluate the core operating performance of the business. Net debt to TTM Adjusted EBITDA ratio is used by management to evaluate the Company`s current and prospective financial position.

Organic revenue growth and Organic Adjusted EBITDA growth are non-GAAP measures that exclude both FX Impact and net refranchisings. Management believes that organic growth is an important metric for measuring the core operating performance of the business as it excludes the impact of our refranchising activities and foreign currency exchange rates.
