  • Pro forma net income * increased 39.9% to $2.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share from $2.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share.

  • Three new restaurants opened during the second quarter of 2012 and an additional two restaurants have opened subsequent to the quarter end, bringing total restaurants opened to date in 2012 to six.

* Restaurant-level EBITDA, restaurant-level EBITDA margin and pro forma net income are non-GAAP measures.

Steve Hislop, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chuy’s Holdings Inc., stated, “We’re pleased with our second quarter results. Through the continued dedication and hard work of our operators in the field and the employees in the home office, we generated solid sales growth which resulted in an approximate 40% increase in pro-forma EPS compared to last year. We have opened six new restaurants to date during fiscal 2012 and we are excited about how these restaurants are performing. Our recent IPO has given us the financial flexibility and improved capital structure we need to execute on our growth plans during 2012 and in the years to come. Our entire team is excited to expand our unique brand of authentic Mexican food, and in the process, create long-term value for our shareholders.”
