Denny’s Corporation Reports Results For Second Quarter 2012

Business Outlook

Mark Wolfinger, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Financial Officer, stated, “Our franchised-focused business model has enabled us to deliver another solid quarter of financial performance as demonstrated by our year-over-year increases in same-store sales, profitability, and cash flow. Our total debt ratio is now below 2.5x which lowers the interest rate on our term loan by 25 bps. to around 3.0%, based on current rates. Our business model provides financial stability and flexibility while enabling us to continue to return value to shareholders through debt repayment and share repurchases.”

Based on year-to-date results and management’s expectations at this time, Denny’s is reiterating the Company’s financial guidance for full year 2012.
