AFC Enterprises Reports Fiscal 2012 Results; Provides Fiscal 2013 Guidance

Global same-store sales increased 6.9%, compared to a 3.1% increase in 2011. Total domestic same-store sales increased 7.5%, compared to a 3.0% increase last year. This positive sales growth reflects Popeyes continued introduction of highly innovative new products, supported by expanded relevant advertising and strengthened restaurant execution.

International same-store sales increased 2.6%, compared to a 3.3% increase last year, the sixth consecutive year of positive same-store sales.

As result of positive same store sales and growth in new restaurants, total revenues were $178.8 million, versus $153.8 million in the prior year, a 16% increase.

Company-operated restaurant operating profit of $11.1 million was 17.3% of sales, compared to $10.2 million and 18.7% of sales last year. The $0.9 million increase in Company-operated restaurant operating profit was primarily due to same-store sales of 5.3% and two new restaurant openings in 2011. The 2012 operating profit includes approximately $0.3 million in pre-opening costs associated with opening 5 new restaurants. The 2011 restaurant operating profit includes a $0.5 million favorable adjustment to insurance reserves. Excluding the effects of pre-opening costs in 2012 and the change in estimated insurance reserves in 2011, Company-operated restaurant operating profit margin would have been 17.8% in both 2012 and 2011. Company-operated restaurant operating profit margin is a supplemental non-GAAP measure of performance. See the heading entitled “Management’s Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

General and administrative expenses were $67.6 million, at 3.0% of system-wide sales compared to $61.3 million at 3.1% of system-wide sales in 2011. The increase in 2012 primarily reflects continued strategic investment in people and resources to accelerate global sales, and Company-operated restaurant development and remodeling. The Company’s general and administrative expenses remain among the most efficient in the industry.

Other income was $0.5 million in 2012, compared to other expenses of $0.5 million last year. Fiscal 2012 results include $0.9 million in gains on sale of real estate assets to franchisees, partially offset by $0.4 million loss on disposal of property and equipment and other expenses, net.
