·16 mins read

Conference Call Thursday, August 13, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. MT/5:00 p.m. ET

Good Times Restaurants Inc. (NASDAQ: GTIM) announced its preliminary unaudited financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 and provided a general business update in connection with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Key highlights of the Company’s financial results include:

  • Total revenues for the quarter decreased 17.3% versus the prior year to $24.4 million

  • Same store sales for company-owned Good Times restaurants increased 11.9% and for Bad Daddy’s restaurants decreased 36.7%

  • Total Restaurant Sales for Good Times restaurants were $9.3 million and Good Times Restaurant Level Operating Profit* (a non-GAAP measure) was $2.5 million or 27.2% as a percent of sales

  • Total Restaurant Sales for Bad Daddy’s restaurants were $14.9 million and Bad Daddy’s Restaurant Level Operating Profit* (a non-GAAP measure) was $2.3 million or 15.4% of sales

  • Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per share for the quarter

  • Adjusted EBITDA* (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $2.4 million

  • The Company ended the quarter with $12.7 million in cash, $9.9 million drawn against its senior credit facility, and $11.6 million in outstanding PPP loans

"At the domestic onset of the pandemic in March, our full team banded together with a mission to keep our employees and guests safe while continuing to deliver stellar food and service despite the pandemic. The financial results from this quarter are the result of this team working together to understand how to operate our business efficiently in a crisis. I could not be more impressed with the agility of the team as the rules of the game continue to change and where an existing playbook simply didn’t previously exist," commented Ryan M. Zink, Good Times Chief Executive Officer. "We operated all of our Bad Daddy’s restaurants in a carry-out and delivery model on a restricted menu for the majority of April and May. As restrictions on dining room service began to be lifted in May, our Bad Daddy’s restaurants implemented protocols consistent with health experts and local guidelines to ensure a safe on-premise dining experience where allowed by local authorities, and we continue to re-evaluate our policies and procedures to ensure that we continue to provide a safe environment for both our employees and our guests."

"Our Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard business, despite sustaining significant initial losses in sales during late March and into April, has been seen as a safe alternative to in-restaurant dining due to the drive-thru nature of that business, satisfying both a convenience and safety need for our guests. We similarly have made the safety of our employees and guests a focus at Good Times, designing protocols for health screenings, mask usage, and other safety precautions well before required by local and state regulations and orders," Zink continued.

Zink concluded, "We continue to monitor the situation closely, and although we cannot control the progression of the pandemic, nor the respective governmental responses, we believe we are prepared to adapt and act accordingly to ensure that we are able to safely serve our guests our all-natural burgers and frozen custard at Good Times; and hand crafted, chef-inspired burgers, sandwiches, and giant chopped salads at Bad Daddy’s, while at the same time creating a solid foundation on which to build future growth through financial discipline and exceptional operating capability."

Fiscal 2020 and 2021 Outlook:

Same store sales during the Company’s fiscal month of July were up 15.6% versus the prior year at Good Times. Same store sales at Bad Daddy’s during July were down 19.6% versus the prior year, improving sequentially each week during the month. Average weekly sales for company-owned restaurants during July were approximately $28,900 at Good Times and $38,100 at Bad Daddy’s.

Due to continuing unprecedented economic conditions associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and unpredictable nature of the novel coronavirus and government responses to the evolving situation, the Company had previously withdrawn its prior financial outlook. At the current time, the Company is not able to reasonably estimate the full impact of the continuing pandemic and beyond providing the above update on July sales is unable to provide an updated outlook for the balance of this fiscal year or for fiscal 2021.

Certain percentage amounts in the table above do not reconcile due to rounding as well as the fact that restaurant operating costs are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues (as opposed to total revenues).

The Company believes that restaurant-level operating profit is an important measure for management and investors because it is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. The Company defines restaurant-level operating profit to be restaurant revenues minus restaurant-level operating costs, excluding restaurant closures and impairment costs. The measure includes restaurant-level occupancy costs, which include fixed rents, percentage rents, common area maintenance charges, real estate and personal property taxes, general liability insurance and other property costs, but excludes depreciation. The measure excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which is related to restaurant-level assets, because such expenses represent historical sunk costs which do not reflect current cash outlay for the restaurants. The measure also excludes selling, general and administrative costs, and therefore excludes occupancy costs associated with selling, general and administrative functions, and pre-opening costs. The Company excludes restaurant closure costs as they do not represent a component of the efficiency of continuing operations. Restaurant impairment costs are excluded, because similar to depreciation and amortization, they represent a non-cash charge for the Company’s investment in its restaurants and not a component of the efficiency of restaurant operations. Restaurant-level operating profit is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or net income as indicators of financial performance. Restaurant-level operating profit as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The tables above set forth certain unaudited information for the current and prior year fiscal quarters and year-to-date periods for fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, except for the components of restaurant operating costs, which are expressed as a percentage of restaurant revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations, as determined by GAAP, and our calculation thereof may not be comparable to that reported by other companies. This measure is presented because we believe that investors' understanding of our performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for evaluating our ongoing results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization and further adjustments to reflect the additions and eliminations presented in the table above.

Adjusted EBITDA is presented because: (i) we believe it is a useful measure for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization expenses and asset disposals, closure costs and restaurant impairments, and (ii) we use adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark for certain of our cash incentive plans and to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure permits a comparative assessment of our operating performance relative to our performance based on our GAAP results, while 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. Companies within our industry exhibit significant variations with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense and income tax rates) and differences in book depreciation of property, plant and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. Our management believes that adjusted EBITDA facilitates company-to-company comparisons within our industry by eliminating some of these foregoing variations. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies, and our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by excluded or unusual items.
