Bloomin' Brands, Inc. Announces Second Quarter EPS Of $0.16 Or 23% Above A Year Ago; Reports Ninth Consecutive Quarter Of Positive Comparable Restaurant Sales Growth For All Core Domestic Concepts; And Provides Full-Year Guidance For 2012

The Company provides these adjusted operating results because it believes they are useful for investors to assess the operating performance of the Company's business without the effect of certain charges. For 2011 and through June 30, 2012, these charges include transaction costs related to dispositions and debt refinancing, management fees paid to the management company associated with the Company's sponsors and founders, loss on the extinguishment of debt and the tax effect of these items. The use of these measures permits a comparative assessment of the Company's operating performance relative to its performance based on its U.S. 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. Management believes that these measures facilitate company-to-company comparisons within the industry by eliminating some of these foregoing variations.  These measures as presented may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures of other companies, and the Company's presentation of them should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by excluded or unusual items.
